RHINELANDER - During the season of giving, the Rhinelander District Library gives back to its users.
"Well, we did this last year, were giving out fine forgiveness for people bringing in non-perishable food items for the Food Pantry. We'll write off their overdue fines," said Ed Hughes, Library Director
The offer is available to anyone, no matter how large the overdue fine may be.
"This way, they can restart for the new year as kind of a Christmas present," said Hughes.
MANITOWISH WATERS - People wanting to get into the holiday spirit didn't need to look further than Manitowish Waters.
Saturday was the 8th annual Festival of Trees.
The event raised money for the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library.
"We are offering businesses to come in and decorate a tree and it's a festive way to recognize local area businesses plus raise money for the library," said Koller Memorial Library director Janelle Kohl.
MINOCQUA - Cross Country skiing seems like itís just you and nature, but thereís actually a lot of manpower and big machinery involved.
The trails at Minocqua Winter Park open Friday. Employees got ready for the skiers starting Sunday.
ďThatís our roller. Thatís the first thing we do when we get a lot of snow we roll it and it knocks the air out of the snow and packs it down," said Eric Twito, one of the people who grooms the ski trails.
Preparing the snow makes the trails better for skiers.
