Merrill Bridges Virtual Academy Earns High Marks
Published on 12/18/2018 under News A unique charter school within the Merrill School District continues to excel and is earning high marks. In addition to the traditional classroom, the Merrill School District offers Bridges Virtual Academy (BVA). It's one of 39 virtual charter schools in the state, 24 of which serve students in grades K-12. In the school report cards released by the state last month, not only did BVA earn an 'exceeds expectations' grade; it also had the highest score in the state among virtual charter schools. John Hagemeister is the director at Bridges. He says they were pleased with the rating. He went on to say "Our school has demonstrated it's effectiveness and is being modeled by other districts around the state because we have established an innovative way to blend a variety of instructional strategies to personalize student learning from home." The Merrill Area Public School District established Bridges Virtual Academy in 2012. It has 715 students and 37 teaching and administrative staff working together to provide quality educational opportunities. Merrill Superintendent John Sample says, "The entire BVA program continues to evolve. They remain focused on achievement while meeting the needs of families throughout the state." He noted that "receiving top honors two years in a row doesn't happen by mistake."

Rhinelander Man Reaches Plea from November Vehicle Chase
Published on 12/18/2018 under News A Rhinelander man, accused of fleeing deputies during a traffic stop last month, has reached a plea deal. Josh Meirhofer was back in Oneida County Court yesterday afternoon. The 29 year old was arrested in early November in the Town of Pelican. Deputies initially attempted a traffic stop when Meirhofer led them on a brief pursuit. According to court records, at yesterday's hearing, Meirhofer pleaded guilty to two reduced charges of resisting by failure to stop a vehicle and obstructing an officer. As part of the agreement with the plea, Meirhofer will avoid further jail time by receiving a withheld sentence. He was ordered to 18 months of probation. Should he violate probation, he'll be credited with 45 days of time served.

DNR Accepting Applications for County Deer Advisory Council Vacancies
Published on 12/18/2018 under News While deer hunting opportunities are winding down for the current season, there are additional ways for interested citizens to participate in local deer management. The DNR is again encouraging individuals to explore vacant County Deer Advisory Council seats. These councils were created across the state in 2014. They provide county specific deer population objectives and herd management decisions. Each council includes a set number of seats, some set aside with specific areas of expertise such as forestry, tourism, or local government. The vacant seats vary by county and are posted on the DNR website. The Councils typically meet twice per year, in the late winter or early spring to establish harvest goals and season structures for the following hunting season. The DNR is accepting those applications through January 15.
