RHINELANDER - A new daycare will soon debut in Rhinelander. Saturday, the new business previewed with an Open House.
Families brought their kids in to get acquainted with First Steps Day Care. Parents toured the building while kids took toys for a test drive. Co-owner Trisha Pugh is thinking small as a child care difference-maker.
"We would like to see families that promote us because they're so proud of the way that their children are brought here to feel part of the family. We want to stay small, if we were to expand it would be to make smaller centers.
We just think they're cozy, friendly and made right for families.
Quality is Pugh's mission. She also wants families to know First Steps Daycare is more than a place to park their kids.
"I absolutely love being with children. But I like having families feel safe, and they have someone that they can talk to about raising children. And bounce ideas off about raising children. And I like educating people about childcare."
First Steps Childcare opens its doors January 14th. For more information, visit www.wjfw.com
CRANDON - Terri Burl wanted to ask more questions than make comments during Congressman Sean Duffy's town hall in Crandon on Thursday.
"Everybody's in the state of the unknown right now," Burl said.
Burl, a Republican, was thinking of her 26-year-old son in Oshkosh as she asked Duffy (R-Wausau) about health care concerns. She worries about tax penalties for her uninsured son and the GOP's lack of solid ideas to replace the Affordable Care Act.
