Lincoln County Health Department to Offer Flu Clinics at Schools
Published on 09/19/2018 under News As we'll be hearing in the coming weeks, flu season is quickly approaching. Here in Lincoln County, the Health Department is making it simple for kids to get flu shots, by making them available at local schools. Jennifer Johnson is a public health nurse for the Lincoln County Health Department. She says, "Last year in Lincoln County the flu hit people hard so we are pleased to be able to offer protection for all students this school year." The flu shots will be free and voluntary, students simply need to return a signed consent form that have been sent home. For the Merrill area schools that deadline is today, for Tomahawk it's next Monday. Johnson says, "Being able to save parents time and help keep kids healthy is a benefit for all." The Merrill area schools will have their clinics next Monday and Tuesday. Tomahawk's are scheduled for October 1. The Health Department will also have a walk-in clinic available for private and charter school students at their office October 16th. And stay tuned to the WJJQ Community Calendar for a number of upcoming flu clinics for the public, as well.

Lincoln County Receives $200,000 Youth Justice Innovation Grant
Published on 09/19/2018 under News The Lincoln County Social Services Department has been awarded a grant to help support community programs for local youth to reduce law referrals. The $200,000 Youth Justice Innovation Grant comes from the state Department of Children and Families. Social Services Director Renee Krueger was on hand at last night's Lincoln County Board to talk more about the grant. The money will go towards improving existing groups to make them more effective and sustainable. She highlighted programs such as youth mentorships and Books and Badges police reading programs as ways to provide the support network for youth between the ages of 10 and 17. The goal is to build informal relationships to keep those kids out of the system. This is the seventh year the state has made the grants available. Krueger said it's typically a one time grant, although the state occasionally makes partial grants available for previous recipients.
