Rhinelander City Council Looks to Save Paper
RHINELANDER - Last night, the Rhinelander city council moved a step closer to ripping paper out of its budget.

The financial committee agreed moving toward technology is the smarter choice.

Hundreds of pages of paper are used at every monthly city council meeting.

City administrator Blaine Oborn said using technology is faster, cheaper, and more effective.

Tech-savvy members were ready to move on from paper.

They're also prepared to help others get up-to-date on the technology that will replace it.

The full city council will finalize the switch next Monday.

EAGLE RIVER - The World Championship Derby started as a small oval racetrack on Dollar Lake.

The race began back in 1964 thanks to Chanticleer Inn's John and Betty Alward.

They wanted a way to keep business up during the slow winter season for themselves and fellow resort owners.

Their son Jake still runs the inn and remembers the excitement behind the "newness" of the sport.

"Every factory wanted their machine first! Money was not the object… it was getting the right machine the right equipment….The right this and that. People flew to Minneapolis to get and engine or a part!" says Alward.

The 55th World Championship Derby is this weekend.
