Mole Lake Donates to Animal ShelterSubmitted: 02/14/2013
Story By Melissa Constanzer

CRANDON - One year in the human world compares to seven years in a dog's world. While we have no idea of knowing how animals value money, if at all... 10,000 dollars for animals can go a long way.

Mole Lake gave ten-thousand-dollars to the Forest County Animal Shelter. The shelter needs the money and already has plans to put it to good use.

"Not only do we have to pay for their food and shelter but we also have to pay for their vet bills, to get them spayed an neutered, to get them vaccinated, things like that. So it's desperately needed," says Marin Herbert, Shelter Operations Manager.

The shelter has many cats and dogs up for adoption. Fees are small and used just to cover some of the expenses of the shelter.

"It's a hundred and thirty dollars for a dog and sixty dollars for a cat. We're having a February special for cats. So now their adoption fee is down to thirty dollars and that just helps us to bring some money back into the shelter," say Marin Herbert.

ANTIGO - When the lieutenant governor and state lawmakers visit Sartori Foods, the company puts them to work.  Tuesday afternoon Rebecca Kleefisch, Rep. Mary Czaja (R-Irma), and Rep. Gary Tauchen (R-Bonduel) put on hair nets and rubber boots to rub Asiago cheese and learned a thing or two about what keeps the family-owned business churning.

"This is really a lot of fun and we got our hands dirty today," Kleefisch laughed.

Czaja chose Sartori as the first stop of a day-tour of Antigo-area businesses. 

"I think [Sartori] is kind of one of the stars of the 35th Assembly District," Czaja said.  The Irma Republican's main goal of Tuesday's tours: turn workforce data into names and faces.

RHINELANDER - When high school senior Valarie Puza got her invitation to Rhinelander's scholarship award ceremony, she knew she had gotten some money to help pay for college.

She had no idea she would be going home with more than $30,000 in scholarship money.

$227,425 was awarded to 84 seniors at the annual ceremony.

Puza won seven scholarships, including the Gaffney Trust Future Teacher's scholarship worth $25,000.

"At first it didn't really hit me," said Puza. "But then I just thought about it, and I thought wow, that's a couple years of college paid for. And it's a good opportunity that I got any money, let alone the amount that I did."

The company owned the land until the state bought the flowage and 114 miles of shoreline surrounding it in 1990.
