DoT Planning Highway 51 Repairs Near Tomahawk this Summer
Published on 04/03/2020 under News Drivers could see some improvements to one of the roughest road segments in the area. The DoT is planning on reconstructing portions of Highway 51 near Tomahawk this summer. That segment of road has experienced road tenting from freezing water in the pavement which results in a washboard like surface. The project area will include the southbound lanes of 51 from County Road S to Hwy 8. The project will be completed with a goal of keeping traffic open during the busiest holiday weekends. Traffic may be re-routed to single lanes on the Northbound side at times. When that occurs the speed limit will be reduced. The current project start is listed as late April. We'll pass along any informational meetings or official start dates as we receive them.

Judge Extends Absentee Ballot Deadline to Friday
Published on 04/03/2020 under News While Wisconsin's election is still scheduled for next Tuesday, two deadlines have been extended. On Thursday, US District Judge William Conley extended the deadline to request an absentee ballot by another day. Lincoln County Clerk Chris Marlowe says that absentee requests can now be made through 5pm Friday (today). Conley's ruling also extended the deadline for clerks to accept absentee ballots. Marlowe says they will accept those ballots through Monday, April 13th at 4pm. Those delayed ballots must still be postmarked by election day. Traditionally, we learn the results of the election within a few hours of the polls closing. This extension will delay those results by a week, as well.

Local Clerk: Return Absentee Ballots Seperately
Published on 04/03/2020 under News Local clerks are reminding those voting by absentee to return the ballots separately rather than placing multiple ballots in the same envelope. The April general election (next Tuesday) and the special 7th district congressional election in May are two separate elections. Each of those ballots is being sent out separately. With the extension of absentee voting period, some voters may have those ballots at the same time. Each ballot must be returned to your clerk's office separately with the envelope the ballot came with. Please do not attempt to return the ballots in the same envelope to save on postage. This will invalidate the ballots.

Published on 03/13/2020 under Sports STEVENS POINT, Wis. The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association determined all remaining games of the State Girls Basketball Tournament, and the boys basketball sectional finals and the State Tournament will be canceled in response to the evolving concerns over the spread of COVID-19. The WIAA regrets the lost opportunity for teams and players that have worked to achieve their goals and the communities that have supported them throughout the year. "I want the student-athletes and their coaches to know that your school leaders, the WIAA Executive Staff, all our committees and the Board of Control have done everything imaginable to try to provide and preserve these opportunities for you," Executive Director Dave Anderson said. "However, we want and need to be responsible in helping the global and state efforts to stem the tide and spread of this virus." Earlier today, the WIAA was informed the Kohl Center would not be available for the State Boys Basketball Tournament scheduled for March 19-21. Many professional, collegiate and high school associations have postponed or canceled scheduled events as a result of the pandemic. Tickets for the WIAA Girls and Boys State Basketball tournaments will be refunded in full. Please allow staff time to make these refunds and contact the WIAA office only if you do not see a refund to your account within two weeks of the tournament. Any tickets purchased at school will be refunded by your school and not the Resch Center or the WIAA.
