Hundreds of cars, people expected for Second Saturday in June Car ShowSubmitted: 05/28/2015
RHINELANDER - Hundreds of unique cars will line the streets of downtown Rhinelander soon for the Second Saturday in June car show.

The show's organizers say the event has grown every year. This year, they've added more trophy classes, allowing contestants to compete in more unique categories.

Organizers expect a lot of people to come and look at the cars.

"Everyone can appreciate a good-looking car or two," says Tarcie Goes, one of the event organizers. "When you bring a community event which is also family-[friendly], [people get] to see all the unique vehicles from the 1900s to now, and how people make them their own. It's just amazing."

The large crowd could help boost the local economy.

"We also get thousands of spectators in the area and the entire downtown is encouraged to bring out specials with food or things in their store, so it's pretty exciting," says Goes.

Organizers think the event can help promote the community too.

"The whole goal here is to bring families together, people from the community [together], bring other communities to Rhinelander so they can get a good feel of the downtown and what we have to offer," says Goes. "It's just a great event for everyone."

The event kicks off on Saturday, June 13. You can pre-register your car online until June 6.

RHINELANDER - Students at Rhinelander High School hoped they would be driving home in a new car Wednesday afternoon. The prize was part of the school's year-end celebration. The car was the top prize connected to the school's Positive Behavior Initiatives and Supports initiative.

This is the third year that the school district has been involved with the initiative. Throughout the year students who display good behaviors such as being on time and assisting others in the classroom can receive special green cards.

These cards are collected and are put into drawings where students can win prizes such as free pizzas from Dominos. The drawings are a weekly event but the green cards are also held over the year for an end of the year grand prize drawing.

Brittany Haakenson, an art teacher at Rhinelander High School, has been very involved with the initiative and the planning for Wednesday's assembly. She was excited for the work the initiative has been able to accomplish and for the grand prize; a new car. "It's totally random and whoever gets that special key, there is going to be six keys that won't open the car, but there will be that one winner," said Haakenson.

"In Wausau, I would say yes, the market was already full," said Again and Again Owner Jody Malsack. "You were competing against people that were friends of yours and you knew, and you don't want to step on too many toes. So here (Merrill) it's kind of unique to this area, and I like it that way."
