Teacher Earns National Board Certification
RHINELANDER - Advanced teachers get recognized for their skills. Only 80 teachers in Wisconsin were recognized with their National Board Certification this year.

Among them is Michelle Flohr. Flohr teaches at Crescent Elementary in Rhinelander. She says third grade has its own challenges.

"With elementary students, you never know what you are going to get day to day. So, through the process, when you're planing lesson plans, a lot of times I would have to revamp everything that I had planned in the first place with the lesson to try to get everything that I wanted out of the kids," Michelle Flohr, a Crescent Elementary Third Grade Teacher.

The process can take anywhere from one to three years to complete. But it took Flohr just one year to receive her certification.

CONOVER -
June Dairy Month isn't just for the cows; it's for goats, too!

Hillbilly Hollow in Conover specializes in goat milk products, especially all types of cheese.

Kathy Martin makes around 35 flavors of soft goat cheese, along with other artisan cheese.

She says the calories are much less than regular cow milk cheese.

"I've had goat cheese that was absolutely horrible. Had it been my first try I would never try it again. BUT they're not all created equal. It's just like with cheddars or anything, sometimes you don't get one as good as another one. Just keep trying."

Hillbilly Hollow just opened a brand new store in Eagle River with all of its goat products.
