Honda Recalls Odysseys, Pilots
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Another recall is out for Honda Odyssey minivans and Pilot SUVs.

Honda says the driver's-side airbags in 748,000 of those vehicles may have been assembled without certain parts that secure the airbag's plastic cover. If those parts are missing, the airbag may not deploy properly.

The models involved are 2009 to 2013 Pilots, and 2011 to 2013 Odysseys.

Just last month, Honda recalled 800,000 of the same two model vehicles because the ignition key could be removed when the vehicle wasn't in park.

MERRILL -
It might be hard to imagine running a business with your mother or daughter-in-law, but for one pair, a shared hobby helped create their DIY studio.

Mother and daughter-in-law duo Diane and Alicia Kucirek opened The Painted Door in Merrill just one month ago.

They take old, worn out furniture and make it new again using chalk paint.

The pair decided to open the studio when both of their houses started to get jam-packed with finished chalk paint projects.

Diane says anyone can learn how to give new life to old furniture with some lessons.

"You just learn as you go. It's so easy to repair anything you don't like, fix it, or change direction with it," says Diane.

Alicia says the first month of business was insane, mainly because of the community's support.

Support comes from outside of Merrill, too.

"We've had people come from all over Wisconsin saying, 'Tell me about this chalk paint!'"says Alicia.

The Painted Door has workshops every Thursday.

MINOCQUA - The Minocqua Town Board approved spending nearly $8,000 on a study for the public fishing pier on Highway 51 in Minocqua.

The findings will help board members decide whether to replace the entire bridge or just repair parts of it.

Public Works Director Mark Pertile says the exact age of the pier is unknown but he guesses it's around 100 years old.

"When you look underneath you'll see some of the problem areas. Some of the things we check are the railings to make sure they are stable. But the wood [is starting to] rot," explained Pertile.

RHINELANDER - A large open lot on Rhinelander's east side could soon fill in with a chain restaurant.

Cory Moritz-Hoffmann and her husband hope to build a Pizza Ranch next to Kwik Trip on Eisenhower Parkway.  The pair of former Pine Lake firefighters got the idea about six years ago when they first went to a Pizza Ranch in Iowa.

They considered pursing a franchise then, but it was more than they could afford at the time.  About two years ago, the Hoffmanns contacted an investor and saw an opportunity to turn their dream into a reality.
