Free Medical Clinic in Merrill on Saturday
Published on 10/12/2018 under News For the second time in recent weeks, Lincoln County will be hosting a free medical clinic. Fresh off of a successful event in Tomahawk last month, they'll partner with the New Testament Church in Merrill to host their fourth annual clinic this weekend. Last year, the group was able to provide more than 325 services to the various attendees. Earlier this week, we were joined by frequent forum guest Roxanne Consolver who went over what people can expect. First, she noted that "there is no catch." She says they'll offer not only medical care, but a variety of other services including a free meal, hair cuts, and winter clothing. They have lined up several doctors, physician's assistants, beauticians, chiropractors, as well as numerous volunteers, who all work together to make the event happen. They'll also have a variety of informational booths on site including representatives from the ADRC, veteran's services, the food pantry and Our Sister's House. You can check out the event at the New Testament Church on County K in Merrill from 10am to 2pm Saturday. Check out Jeff's forum conversation with Roxanne in the audio center at wjjq.com

Inspect Home Heating Systems before Winter Heating Season
Published on 10/12/2018 under News With temperatures falling, a local fire department is reminding residents to check their furnace or heating systems. That message comes from the Tomahawk Fire Department after crews were called out for an overheating furnace yesterday. Firefighters were paged to Theiler Drive at a little after 1pm. The report says there was smoke coming from the heat vent. Fortunately there was no damage to the structure or contents. Firefighters were on the scene for a little more than an hour. The call prompted the agency to remind residents to check furnaces or heating systems before winter. That may include getting them professionally inspected or simply changing out the filters and firing up the unit and monitoring it. Chimneys may also need to be cleaned or checked. The warning coincidentally comes as this week is also being recognized as National Fire Prevention Week.
