7/24 There's no place like home - especially for Dorothy's red slippers

Judy Garland Museum/John Kelsch

There's no place like home - but tell it to the shoes. 

Almost ten years ago, a pair of Judy Garland's famous red shoes - one of the pairs she wore in 1939's "The Wizard of Oz" - was stolen from a museum in her Grand Rapids hometown. Now an anonymous donor is putting up a million dollar reward for "credible information" leading to the the return of the shoes and the identity of the thief.

But in an update to the story, the donor has said this reward is not going to be on the table much longer.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
