Firm Plans Exploratory Mining in Oneida County
Published on 02/14/2020 under News A Canadian-based mining operation plans to conduct metallic mineral exploration in Oneida County in the coming weeks. The DNR says they received a metallic mineral exploration license application and a notice of intent to drill from Badger Minerals, LLC last month. The DNR says they granted that exploration license Tuesday. The three planned drilling sites are located on private parcels owned by Badger Minerals and Heartwood Forestland Group in the Town of Schoepke, southeast of Rhinelander. The site is actually adjacent to a previous site explored by Noranda in the 1970's. The exploration activities are planned for February and March and will include up to 10 boreholes totaling a maximum of 4,000 linear feet, including rock core samples for analysis. Badger Minerals is a subsidiary of Can-America Minerals in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

WEDC Issues $250k Grant for Park Falls Hotel Renovation
Published on 02/14/2020 under News The state is investing in a Park Falls hotel project with a quarter of a million dollar grant to help finance a renovation and expansion. Yesterday, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation announced $250,000 in funding for what will become the Cobblestone Hotel and Suites. The site is located on the city's south side. A study commissioned by the Park Falls Area Community Development Corporation (PFACDC) concluded a deficit of quality lodging options, while a significant portion of their economy is connected to tourism. They also referenced the manufacturing industry and the need for quality lodging to host current and potential clients. Park Falls Mayor Michael Bablick says "We will continue to try and advance the project. The city has been aggressively moving forward since April 2019 to spur new investment and improve the business climate." With additional lodging, plans for bike races, ATV and snowmobiling activities, seaplane festivals, and further promotion of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest are all in development. The $3.6 million project is projected to create 14 jobs and is expected to be completed at the end of the year.

Wausau Police Waive Parking Tickets Issued During Monday Snow Emergency
Published on 02/14/2020 under News More than 100 parking tickets issued last weekend in Wausau during a snow storm will forgiven. Ahead of that snowstorm, a number of communities including Wausau declared snow emergencies to accommodate plowing operations.

Yesterday Police Chief Ben Bliven announced on Facebook that tickets issued early Monday morning would be canceled. He noted that the tickets were correctly issued based on the snow emergency in place, but that the emergency should have been better timed to accommodate the plows. The waiver only applies to those tickets issued Monday morning. Bliven says those that have already paid will receive a refund in the next two weeks. Those who haven't paid can disregard the ticket.

Rhinelander Mock Trial Team Earns Trip to State; Scheduling Conflict
Published on 02/14/2020 under News Over the years, the Rhinelander High School Mock Trial team has been a mainstay at the state competition. The squad qualified this year, but won't be attending due to a scheduling conflict. The mock trial program provides high school students with an opportunity to act as attorneys and witnesses in a fictional court case. This year, students are dealing with a fictional civil case involving an accidental drowning at a country club. At last weekend's regional competition the Rhinelander squad punched a ticket to Madison. Unfortunately, the school announced that the team had to give up their spot as several team members will attend a school-sponsored educational trip to Europe the same weekend. Wausau West will fill that spot, joining DC Everest who also qualified through last weekend's competition. The Hodags have arguably been the most successful mock trial program in Wisconsin, with 17 state titles.

Published on 02/11/2020 under Sports Back in December, the Antigo Red Robins got the better of the Tomahawk Hatchets on the hardwood, as Antigo escaped with a 63-47 win over the Hatchets.
