Tomahawk School District Launches Community Survey for Administrator Search
Published on 10/21/2021 under News The Tomahawk School District's search for their next District Administrator is underway, and the community is able to provide input via an online survey. At their meeting last week, the Tomahawk School Board laid out the timeline for this process working with a search firm. While the position is already posted, the search firm will simultaneously work with focus groups to identify district-specific desires for potential candidates. They'll be meeting with board members, school administrators and staff, and school stake holders. That process also includes an online community survey which is now live on the district search website. The survey includes 11 yes/no questions; some 1-10 ratings; and some short answer opportunities. The survey will remain open through November 19. The district is currently operating with an interim superintendent following the abrupt retirement of Terry Reynolds at the start of the school year. The interim hire of Joe Innis was made for the entire school year. They hope to interview finalists in January and name the next District administrator in February. That individual would take over July 1.

A pair of local projects also made the list.North Central Health Care received approval for renovations and expansion of their mental health building. The facility currently serves clients from Marathon, Lincoln, and Langlade Counties. This will expand capacity to serve Forest, Oneida and Vilas Counties as well. We'll have more on this project on the Friday morning show. Up in Oneida County, another approved project would replace the Pinewood trestle bridge on the Bearskin Trail in Harshaw.  The 50-foot-long bridge is one of 16 trestles along the trail which runs from Nokomis to Minocqua. The bridge was deemed structurally unsafe. In addition to summer trail usage, the replacement bridge, once complete will be able to accommodate snow grooming equipment and snowmobile activity during the winter months. Gov. Evers said in announcing these projects, "I am glad this bipartisan commission moved forward on these important projects as we work to bolster our state infrastructure."

DNR: Watch For, Properly Dispose Gypsy Moth Egg Masses
Published on 10/21/2021 under News The DNR is asking the public for help this fall by looking for and disposing the egg masses from the invasive gypsy moth. The DNR says gypsy moth populations have increased in consecutive summers as the weather conditions have allowed more caterpillars to survive and become moths. Treating or removing masses in the fall prevents large numbers of eggs from hatching into hungry, leaf-eating caterpillars in the spring. The DNR described the eggs as tan-colored masses about the size of a nickel or quarter. They can be located on trees, buildings, firewood piles and birdhouses. Each mass will contain hundreds of eggs. The egg masses become more visible on trees as they lose their leaves. If you come across gypsy moth eggs, the DNR recommends spraying them with a horticultural oil, or you can gently scrape them into a container with soapy water. They recommend soaking the egg mass for several days in the soapy water before throwing them in the trash. The DNR has additional information on their website. -Photo provided by the DNR-
