Merrill Homeless Center Receives Building Permits, Remodel Set to Begin
Published on 02/20/2018 under News Last fall, a group from Merrill announced plans for a homeless shelter, now action on that plan is about to pick back up. The group became known as Merrill Community Homeless Center Inc, and their project the new Habitat Home. They were able to secure a property on West Main Street in October, as well as several large grants over the past few months. Organizers say "building plans were developed, and changes were made along the way to meet required codes.  The State of Wisconsin is key to approving the Building Plan, which is necessary to acquire a building permit." Last week, the board confirmed that they have received that permit and "now the real work begins." A crew of volunteers will handle the interior demolition needed to prepare the building for the remodel.   Three contractors have been selected to work on renovations. Those are expected to cost around $150,000, and additional donations are welcome.

AG Schimel Continues 72 County Tour with Stops in Lincoln, Oneida Counties
Published on 02/20/2018 under News Throughout his term, Attorney General Brad Schimel has made it a point to travel to all 72 of the state's counties meeting with local law enforcement and elected officials. This past week, Schimel once again visited the Northwoods with stops in Lincoln and Oneida Counties. Schimel noted that, "At the DOJ, (they) rely on (their) partnerships with municipalities and counties to carry out the public safety mission." He says these meetings are critical to making sure the DoJ tailors resources to the needs at the local level. Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman said they appreciated Schimel coming North to speak about issues important to the community. While each of the visits has focused on the challenges and safety concerns specific to each county, there has been an overarching theme focused on drug and opioid abuse. The North Central Drug Enforcement Group, which includes Lincoln and Oneida counties will receive more than $50,000 this year to help investigate drug distribution crimes in the region.

Northwoods Boy Scouts Partner with Public Service for Electricity Badges
Published on 02/20/2018 under News For more than six decades, Wisconsin Public Service has partnered with area Boy Scouts to earn merit badges. They did so again this past weekend. WPS volunteers were in Wausau for their annual electricity merit badge clinic, joined by approximately 50 boy scouts from north central Wisconsin. Among the activities, the scouts learn how electricity is generated, design circuits and create working electromagnets. This year representatives from the Wausau Fire Department were also on hand to share tips on how to remain safe during emergencies involving electricity. The clinic allows line electricians, engineers and other WPS employees to introduce Scouts to energy industry careers, as well as enhance science and engineering skills. The Samoset Council, which provides guidance to Scouts in north central Wisconsin, has seen significant interest recently in these subjects, as more than 370 Scouts are enrolled in its "STEM Scouts" program. This is actually the 66th year for the event. They'll hold another for Fox Valley Scouts in Green Bay next month.

DNR Announces CWD Meeting in Tomahawk Wednesday
Published on 02/20/2018 under News The DNR announced yesterday that they will be hosting a meeting here in the Northwoods regarding deer with chronic wasting disease. Last month the DNR announced that a deer harvested in Lincoln County had tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease or CWD. That positive test triggered a number of changes as required by state law. Most notably a deer feeding ban which goes into effect not only in the affected county, but neighboring counties near the positive test. Coming up tomorrow the DNR will be hosting a public informational meeting on CWD, the positive test, and the steps going forward. It will be hosted right here in Tomahawk. For those that would like to attend, it's scheduled for 7pm, Wednesday evening, at the High School.
