Wausau Center Mall Demolition Nearly Complete
Published on 07/23/2021 under News After nearly 40 years anchoring the downtown community, little remains of the Wausau Center Mall. Earlier this week, crews took down the main entrance archway, one of the final pieces that was left standing. Future plans include the redevelopment of the property as an urban hub featuring housing, boutique retail, hospitality and gathering spaces. Chuck Ghidorzi from the Wausau Opportunity Zone (WOZ) said of the final demolition, "People will have a decent view of the redevelopment space and can really begin to visualize its potential." Crews were able to salvage some mall artifacts during the demolition process. That includes the Boy and Boot Sculpture which predates the mall by decades. It was actually donated to the city in 1925, and placed at the mall when it opened in 1983. The statue will be relocated to an undetermined location. The Marathon County Historical Society was also able to salvage some historical items and images. WOZ said in the announcement that community minded groups like Habitat for Humanity and St. Vincent de Paul will re-purpose fixtures and other items left in the building. Demolition began on May 21 of this year. -Photo provided by the Wausau Opportunity Zone

DNR Encourages Life Jacket Use Ahead of Anticipated Busy Weekend on Waterways
Published on 07/23/2021 under News With temperatures spiking this weekend, area waterways will be crowded this weekend. The DNR is once again encouraging boaters to wear a life jacket when hitting the water. So far this year, 16 people have died in boating incidents in Wisconsin. The DNR only tracks drownings involving a boating incidents. The leading cause in these incidents is drowning and many are preventable by wearing a safety vest. Lt. Darren Kuhn is a DNR boating law administrator. He says, "Wearing a life jacket is the easiest thing you can do to make sure that your next boating trip won't be your last." It's important to actually wear the life vest rather than keeping it stowed on your boat. Lt. Kuhn notes that most people who drown in boating accidents know how to swim, but become injured, knocked unconscious, exhausted, or weighed down by clothing. The DNR added that operator inexperience, inattention, recklessness and speeding are the leading causes of boating accidents.
