MERRILL - Apple picker Kyle Gulke has worked at Helene's Hilltop Orchard in Merrill for three years.

"I wanted to help out. They definitely need help to pick all the trees," said Gulke.

Orchard owner Olivia Telschow has about 14 acres of trees. That's at least 8,000 trees.

Only two men are in charge of picking apples from those trees.

"I'm still short about 12 employees," said Telschow.

Telschow says battling this summer's heat was hard, but finding people willing to work in it was even more challenging.

She has openings throughout the orchard, but needs pickers the most.

PRICE CO. - Price County's Tourism Department escaped being cut in last year's budget, but this year the County Board decided to get rid of it in a 10-2 vote.

Instead of having its own department, the county will give the Park Falls and Phillips chambers of commerce $15,000 each.

The two chambers will work together to use that money to promote tourism in the county.

The plan is to eliminate the county tourism department no later than the end of the year.

RHINELANDER - Buying a house takes a lot of planning, timing, and some luck. Something buyers can't control is a home's listing price. Statewide, that number has gone up because more people are looking to buy than sell.

Joe Verich and his wife planned to sell their lakefront home 1 1/2 years ago. However, closing the deal hasn't happened yet. 

"We were given pretty good notice when we listed our house. We were expecting that it could be as much as two years to move the home," said Verich.

Verich says he had to lower his price a dozen times. Lucky for him, when he originally bought his house, Verich got a good deal for it.
