MARTY ON DRINKING and WISCONSIN
Rural Cadott woman gets five years' prison for driving drunk, killing beloved Stanley dentist
I didn’t become a heavy drinker till I was 24…Why? I didn’t live in Wisconsin 'til I joined TV11 in Green Bay 1966…Those who worked with me then know I was an easy person to get drunk.
Wisconsin encouraged drinking. I bought in. I drove home many nights back then. IMPAIRED. The worse was the night we celebrated JIM IRWIN getting the job at WTMJ.
I could have killed someone that night. I swore off heavy drinking after that. I now have a BEER a week. If you know someone who drinks too much tell them this story.
