Local HS Bands Join Together for Rose Parade Invite
Published on 07/01/2022 under News While plans have been in the works for sometime, an all-star marching band comprised of area high school students received their formal invitation to play at the Tournament of Roses Parade in January. Commonly associated with the annual Rose Bowl, the prestigious parade in Pasadena,California actually predates the football game and is more than 130 years old. Around 400 high school band students from eight area high schools have joined together for their Northwoods Band entry. Among the participating districts are Wausau East, Antigo, D.C. Everest, Lakeland, Merrill, Mosinee, Northland Pines, and Three Lakes. The Tournament of Roses Association currently has ties to the Northwoods. President Amy Wainscott is originally from the Eagle River area. Back in the area over the holiday weekend, she officially presented the offer this week. In recent months, the students have been busy not only practicing, but fundraising to cover the travel costs. They'll be showing off some of their hard work over the Fourth weekend. The band will be marching in several area parades including the annual Powwow Days here in Tomahawk on Monday. We'll have our annual parade coverage on Monday as well.

Be Mindful of Dogs During Fireworks Displays
Published on 07/01/2022 under News While we may enjoy the fireworks displays, our four legged friends generally do not. The Lincoln County Humane Society says that more pets go missing on July 4th than any other day of the year. Many of these cases involve dogs that run off because they're frightened by fireworks. That's why they say its so important to make sure your dog has a collar with an ID tag. If your pup is micro-chipped, ensure that information is up-to-date as well. Vacationers or seasonal residents may want to pick up an extra collar and write down your Northwoods contact information. As for the fireworks, it's a good idea to take a long walk in the late afternoon or evening to tire your pet out before the fireworks begin. Once fireworks start, your dog will be most comfortable at home in a safe and familiar environment. To make it more accommodating, they recommend closing windows and lowering blinds. Make sure your pup has plenty of water and toys to keep them occupied. If you know your animal will be distressed during the firework displays, the Humane Society recommends contacting your veterinarian. Some report that calming products such as 'thunder shirts' may also help.
