Nicolet College 'Three for Free' and 'Nicolet Promise' Programs Returning
Published on 12/02/2021 under News With the spring semester right around the corner, Nicolet College announced that they'll be bringing back two popular programs that make a college education more affordable. The school announced the return of both their Three for Free and Nicolet Promise programs. The Three for Free program was created amid the pandemic to cover the tuition costs of three credits for students affected by the pandemic such as those who lost employment. Three for Free will be available for the upcoming spring term which opens January 5. As for the Nicolet Promise, the program covers the entire cost of tuition for qualifying students once financial aide is removed. The Nicolet Promise launched in 2016. The next cycle will be available for the fall semester. Katie Ourada, Nicolet admissions manager says, "While we are hopeful we are beginning to turn the corner on the pandemic, we're finding that many students are still struggling to pay for college." She notes, "These programs have helped many students in the past and we are delighted to still have funds available to help more students moving forward."

City of Tomahawk Committee Meeting Recap
Published on 12/02/2021 under News From the pandemic to summer storms, we've seen numerous emergency situations over the past year. Tomahawk city officials are looking to reconvene their dormant disaster preparedness committee to review the city's response plan. The topic emerged out of Tuesday's health and safety committee. During the monthly fire department report, the committee members expanded the conversation to the city's preparedness in the event of an emergency. The unplanned conversation briefly touched on a number of topics such as types of emergencies that may affect the city to ways officials could communicate with residents in the case of an emergency. The city does actually have a disaster preparedness committee, though no one at the meeting could recall the last time the committee met. Four of the five seats on the committee are assigned for the mayor, the police chief, the fire chief and the city council president. The fifth seat is an appointed at-large member. While Lincoln County has an emergency response team and committee, the health and safety committee members participating in last night's discussion recommended the city's disaster preparedness team reconvene in the new year to review or update the response plan as necessary. That conversation will likely include the Lincoln County Emergency Management Director and touching base with the city of Merrill. _____ It was an otherwise typical night of committee meetings for the city with minimal action taken. The Health and Safety Committee briefly went over their year to date city celebrations budget. With the two largest events, Powwow Days and the Fall Ride, complete, that budget could have a small surplus. When that is the case, the public works department will use the funds for event related costs such as replacing city barricades. The Finance Committee met multiple times in November to prepare the budget. With that work largely complete, the committee met briefly to approve checks and hear updates on ongoing agenda items. With the council considering a Transportation Utility, the city will be holding some public informational meetings. Clerk Amanda Bartz said those would likely take place after the holidays. The only action item on the agenda was transferring funds between two of the city's TIF districts.

NATH Hosting Stuff-A-Truck at Frederick Place Thursday

The Northwoods Alliance for temporary housing, or NATH, is holding the event this afternoon outside of Frederick Place in Rhinelander. They're going to place the pickup truck outside of their shelter to both fill the truck and raise awareness of their needs.

In addition to providing supplies for current residents, they can also support residents as they transition out of the shelter. While general donations, including financial are welcome, today's event is focused on restocking household items and cleaning supplies.
