RHINELANDER - Food pantries all over the country help to build hunger free communities.
One Northwoods food pantry is celebrating a huge milestone it reached earlier this month.
The Rhinelander Area Food Pantry has distributed more than five million pounds of food in its twelve years of operation.
That comes out to about five tons of food going out the doors each week.
"Five million pounds of food is unreal. It's…the community has been wonderful. This community has always supported us, not only with money and with donations, but with volunteers," said Treasurer Ginger Chrobak.
RHINELANDER - Those looking for jobs in manufacturing don't have to go to a big city to get a job. There are a lot of opportunities right here in the Northwoods.
Nicolet College held a manufacturing expo with both educators and employers Wednesday to show the community what opportunities are available in the field.
"It's just a really good opportunity to see what the education pathway looks like for manufacturing, but then also that end game at the very end to see what the sacrifice was worth when you look at employment opportunities," said Nicolet College Career Coach Angeline Kesler.
SUGAR CAMP - Equipped with a box full of tools and their trusty canoe, Aubrey Nycz and Tom Boisvert hit the water ready to search Wednesday morning.
"It's kind of like a little scavenger hunt," Nycz said.
The duo from the Oneida County Aquatic Invasive Species program hunted Paradise Lake northwest of Sugar Camp for items like Chinese mystery snails and Eurasian Watermilfoil, noting where they're located and how much of the species there is in the area.
MADISON - Republican legislators have introduced a pair of bills that would relax private property regulations and bar local governments from imposing special highway weight limits on propane shipments.
Representative Adam Jarchow and Senator Tom Tiffany's bills were sparked by a U.S. Supreme Court decision last month that upheld a St. Croix County ordinance.
MINNEAPOLIS - The partner of a Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman who had called 911 told investigators he was startled by a loud sound near their squad car seconds before his partner fired his weapon.
Officer Matthew Harrity's account was released Tuesday by state investigators.
