One Antigo woman needed more space to share her folk medicine knowledge.
To keep up with demand, Kelly Keyser-Millar recently moved her 'Mortar and Pestle' shop right next door from its old location in downtown Antigo.
Digestion problems are a common reason that people come into the shop.
She recommends digestive bitters to get your system moving naturally.
"You're taking it 20 to 30 minutes before you eat. Once your digestive system is ready to go, it helps move the process along. Often where people get digestive upset is just that you're really sluggish," says Kelly.
Having a new workspace means Kelly will be busy brewing more new, folk medicine in the coming weeks.
WAUSAU - More than 115,000 people in Wisconsin live with dementia.
That number will double in the next 20 years, according to the state Department of Health Services.
Northern Wisconsin will likely see some of the biggest effects, with a population aging faster than the rest of the state. Communities and businesses can see the change coming, and at least one business seems well prepared.
"One of the first signs of dementia is financial confusion," said Rhonda Lewis, the Executive Administrative Assistant at Wausau-based River Valley Bank.
RHINELANDER - A group of local veterans want to see some changes by Veterans Day.
The flagpole at the Forest Home Cemetery in Rhinelander is surrounded by a fence, trees, and a road which doesn't leave much room for the Honor Guard to preform ceremonies on Veterans Day or Memorial Day.
Quarter Master VFW Post 3143 Ralph Larson isn't happy with the placement or look of the 28-year-old flagpole.
"I'm very disappointed with the City of Rhinelander," said Larson. "It's back here in the corner and nobody can see it."
He believes that's why only a handful of people ever attend the veteran ceremonies.
"Its three to five [people]. I think the highest we ever had is ten," said Larson.
VFW Commander James Pederson says around 60 people attend Newbold's veteran ceremonies even though Rhinelander has a larger population.
