RHINELANDER - The Trig's Plaza in Rhinelander will get a brand new look and a few new businesses by fall. Right now crews are working inside near the back of the store.

By April they hope to start updating the outside, and working on some new businesses.

"The Riverwalk Center Mall is going to see the addition of a Tula's Cafe, it's going to see the addition of a conference center, and it's going to see the addition of a Tone Zone, and hopefully we're going to see a GNC down in there," said Steve Heise, Trig's Rhinelander Store Manager.

The remodel inside is focused on green updates. The new floor will be a polished concrete that can be cleaned without chemicals. They expect LED lights in the freezers, and newer refrigerators will cut energy use by at least 20 percent.

The Tula's cafe mentioned is already a hit in Minocqua... they think it will be just as popular here.

"The Rhinelander store, being surrounded by the business community, is really a destination center. Our deli sees a lot of people come in for lunch, this is just going to be another option for them," said Heise.

Everything you normally shop for at Trigs is still available, just shifted around a little bit. The entire remodel inside should be done by June.

Along with the new fitness facility, and café customers can expect to see some new products on the remodeled shelves.

MERRILL - Firefighters put in a lot of work to help people in a variety of different crises.

"I think it's a great opportunity for the Merrill Fire Department to partner with WPS. Anytime we can get realistic training it's very very valuable to us," says the captain in charge of training Mike Drury.

Gov. Walker warns Potawatomi it could lose gamesSubmitted: 08/29/2014

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker's administration has warned the Forest County Potawatomi tribe that it could lose about 2,000 slot machines if it succeeds in withholding its $25 million annual payment to the state.

The Potawatomi say they're withholding the money because the state may end up owing the tribe money if Walker approves the Menominee tribe's proposed Kenosha casino. The Potawatomi fear a Kenosha casino would significantly cut into their Milwaukee casino profits.
