RHINELANDER - We almost know who the new superintendent of the School District of Rhinelander will be.

The school board narrowed its candidates down to three.

The board started looking for a new superintendent at the end of last year.

Current superintendent Dr. Roger Erdahl will retire at the end of June.

The board narrowed the search to three candidates.

Jean Broadwater is the current superintendent of the Houston School District in Minnesota.

Kelli Jacobi is Rhinelander's Director of Curriculum and Instruction.

Tom Johansen is D. C. Everest's high school principal.

Board president Ron Counter said whoever is chosen needs to be financially responsible.

"The future of the Rhinelander School District, relies heavily on its budget and future budget initiatives. And so I'm hoping this candidate can come forward, create some trust within the community, be a face of the school district and have a strong financial background so that they can lead us into the future," said Counter.

Final interviews for the three candidates are scheduled for February 27th.

That meeting will be open to the public.

"We believe it was caused by a train," said the DNR's incident commander, Joe Danowski. "It spread about three-quarters of a mile along the north side of the tracks."

WISCONSIN - Wisconsin Public Service encourages any emergency responders to apply for its "Safety is Worth the Energy" grants. It will award 25 $2,000 grants this year.

All of WPS's service area can apply. Money is used for departments to provide special equipment or training which they otherwise wouldn't have.

"This is the second year we're offering the "Safety is Worth the Energy" grant for our local emergency responders in our service area," said WPS Community Relations Leader Leah Van Zile. "That would be fire departments, emergency rescue squads, police departments."
