Story By Shardaa Gray


RHINELANDER - People met at Nicolet College Wednesday to discuss new opportunities for those looking to start or expand their business in the Northwoods.

The Northwoods Entrepreneurial Network has been here for over 7 years.

This is the first time they are connecting with local business owners and other people to determine what type of businesses will likely succeed in here .


Michelle Madl-Soehren is the president of the Northwoods Entrepreneurial Network.

She wants to hear the voice of the community so they can share it in the next meeting.

"Tonight is all about idea generation and information gathering and the plan then is to take all of the information, put it together and then put it back out to the community and say here it is." said Soehren.

"And we're here for you."

Dan Kuzlik is the outreach specialist at the University of Wisconsin Superior.

He believes there are great examples of business that were built here and
continually growing in the Rhinelander community.

"That's the kind of business we want to grow here. Good business that create a living wage for to raise a family with." Kuzlik said.

"Clean industry because we talk to people and they love the environment up here."

The next meeting will be in March.

The program is free and open to the public.

If you're interested in contacting Michelle, you can call her at 715-365-4492 or email her at mmadl@nicoletcollege.edu.

PIEHL - The home of Ashlee Martinson and Thomas and Jennifer Ayers remains an active crime scene. But sheriff's deputies think an 18-year-old broke into it last week.

Martinson is charged with killing the Ayers couple at the home last month.

Last Thursday, Oneida County Sheriff's Deputies arrested Dan Mohr for burglary and theft at the home. He said he was a friend of Martinson.

According to the criminal complaint, Oneida County dispatch received a complaint that a car was between the storage shed and garage at the victim's house in Piehl.

Mohr was in the driveway when police arrived. Mohr said he got in through an unlocked front door. He said he didn't take anything, but after police searched him, they found three pocket knives, seven small pieces of paper with sketches, a pair of latex gloves, and black cloth gloves. He said he found the sketches in Martinson's room.

GOODMAN - Without its veneer mill, the community of Goodman would likely decline and lose its school. The mill employs a large proportion of people in town. That reliance on the forest products industry makes education about sustainable forestry a must for students in Goodman.

"Well, I would describe it as loud, of course," said Goodman-Armstrong Creek sixth grader Mia Schaller after seeing a harvester fell tall trees, then take off their branches and cut them into even-length logs.

NORTHWOODS - Chippewa tribes in Wisconsin may be one step closer to being able to hunt deer at night again.

Last year, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered Federal Judge Barbara Crabb to reconsider a ban on night deer hunting. In 1991, she ruled against night hunting in ceded territory for safety reasons.

The state of Wisconsin asked the U.S. Supreme Court to look at that decision, but on Monday the court decided not to take up the case.

GOODMAN - Many Northwoods communities keep pushing for better broadband internet. Last year, a $90,000 grant from the state Public Service Commission helped the Lakeland area improve broadband. Now, the state pot of money for similar grants could grow.

The legislature's budget committee voted to approve a plan last week. It would make an extra $1.5 million available for grants over the next four years.

"(Broadband) has a huge importance," said Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst), who sits on the Joint Finance Committee. "We need to roll more out. If we could, I would have liked to have put more money toward broadband grants."
