RHINELANDER - The generosity of a local business brings a happy ending for a Rhinelander family.
The Lund family's Monday started off like it did for many of us- warming up the car.
That's until their truck was stolen, right from their own driveway.
A local business heard their story, and decided they wanted to help out.
Stories like this one sound like they're made for the movies.
" After like 20 minutes of running we noticed the vehicle driving off and it wasn't my wife or me driving," said Eric Lund.
The Lund family's truck was stolen. Right from their driveway in Rhinelander.
"It's kind of a scary thing, your vehicle leaving and not knowing who's in it," said Lund.
But like any good movie, this story has a happy ending.
When Sounds & Motion in Rhinelander heard the Lund's story, they knew they had to help out.
"I read the story about the family who had their vehicle stolen when it was being warmed up and I thought that a remote starter for that family would be a great way to just spread the word about what remote starters can do and some of the advantages they have," said Nate Scholten, owner of Sounds & Motion.
Sounds & Motion installed the Lund family's remote starter free of charge Wednesday afternoon.
" I'm very relieved and overwhelmed, you know? Nate from sounds and motion is a great person and it's an excellent business here, not only did he install a remote starter in the truck for us, but now, we feel safe at home. We don't have to worry about someone stealing our vehicle," said Lund.
It's a relief coming from a business that cares.
"I'm most proud of just the fact that I'm able to help. It's not just me it's all the guys here. They all contribute, significantly," said Scholten.
BEAVER DAM (AP) - Wisconsin Democratic voters are getting nervous over their large field of candidates running for governor.
The primary isn't until Aug. 14. No one has emerged as the clear front-runner ahead of next weekend's state convention. And no one is showing signs of dropping out.
Meanwhile, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is stockpiling resources and is in the middle of a $1.4 million TV ad campaign where he's run three ads unopposed touting his record.
Democrat Denise Hutchison, of Green Bay, says she hopes the field will narrow. She's optimistic that may happen after this weekend's state Democratic Party convention. But she also thinks whoever wins the primary will get the full support of Democratic voters.
MADISON (AP) - \Wisconsin dairy farmers have broken their streak of year-over-year production increases.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Wisconsin farmers produced about 2.5 billion pounds of milk last month, down 0.6 percent from 2017.
Bob Cropp is a professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He tells Wisconsin Public Radio that the slowdown in production is good for milk prices. Prices have been low for three straight years because of an abundance of milk on the market.
The USDA report says there were 5,000 fewer cows in the state compared to last year.
Darin Von Ruden is president of the Wisconsin Farmers Union. He says farms that remained open faced cold and snowy conditions this spring.
Cropp says some experts believe milk prices may reach $17 per 100 pounds by November.
