Bull Falls Brewery Expands Company
WAUSAU - You'll soon be able to drink some new brews.

It's thanks to a merger announced Wednesday.

Bull Falls Brewery in Wausau has partnered with Mid-Wisconsin Beverage.

Their beer will be sold all across the Northwoods including Rhinelander and Minocqua.

An expansion on their current building is in the near future as well.

Co-owner Michael Zamzow at first was skeptical about the partnership.

"We feel now that we are going to be able to get to kinda grow up together because this is new for us and new for them," said Zamzow.

"We as a brewery here will be able to pour into that company information that they need about beer so that they can do a good job promoting the products and the quality stays good."

Bull Fall produces 16 different styles of beer.

Mid-Wisconsin is the local Pepsi distributor.

RHINELANDER - Local veterinarian, Dr. Alison French, actually sees a decrease in vet visits in the winter months due to less outdoor exercise and fewer injuries. But less time outside with pets is not necessarily a good thing.

French recommends you give your pets plenty of water and take walks outside even in the coldest temperatures.

Just like humans, animals dehydrate faster in the cold. Make sure you refill your pet's water bowls.

"Make sure they have fresh water. So if they're outside all the time make sure they have a heated water dish," said French.

RHINELANDER - Rhinelander middle school students could experience a new class schedule this fall.

School administrators have worked for a year and half to change the 20-year-old master schedule.

James Williams Middle School Principal Richard Gretzinger says the main focus of a new schedule is to give students a 30 minute free or "enrichment" period.

"Sometimes students get caught up in getting to go to one class to the other to the other. If we can break up that day for those students and give them some movement, brain breaks and activities… Studies have shown that they will be effective through the day," said Gretzinger.

RHINELANDER - Rhinelander's police chief hoped to fill two jobs in his department last summer.  A field of eight finalists led to zero job offers, but this week Lloyd Gauthier's force might finally get back to full strength.

The Rhinelander Police and Fire Commission approved hiring Tyler and Logan Pontbriand on Monday.  Their hires would bring the total force in Rhinelander to 17, including the chief and captain positions.

The Pontbriand twins are deputies with the Vilas County Sheriff's Office.  Logan started as a corrections officer in May 2015 while Tyler was hired as a deputy in January 2016.

Gauthier says they had six qualified applicants after reopening the application process in November, but the Pontbriands - who both live in Rhinelander - had qualities you simply can't teach.
