RHINELANDER - We got one step closer Friday to seeing construction work begin on a century-old building.

The Rhinelander District Library invited six construction firms to come for interviews later this spring. One of those firms will be chosen to work on a multi-million dollar expansion.

Most of the firms come from Wisconsin and all are from the Great Lakes region.

Director Ed Hughes is pleased with the progress.

"I would like to be moving faster, and I'm sure the architects would like to be moving faster, but I think we're on pace," Hughes said.

The firms will come to Rhinelander for interviews April 29th through May 3rd. The board hopes to make a choice soon after.

NORTHWOODS - Michelle Reiche loves spending Saturday afternoon with her kids and dog Dexter.

"Kids were catching frogs down the ponds down here and he was going down by them and he [Dexter] must have drank some of the water," said Reiche.

But that fun afternoon changed when that water made Dexter very sick.

"I ran over to him right away and he was just shaking like this," Reiche said. "I knew something was wrong right away as soon as I went to him."

The family took the dog to Central Wisconsin Animal Emergency Care Center in Kronenwetter. The doctor said Dexter most likely was exposed to Blue-Green Algae.

"They didn't think he was going to live," Reiche said. "They basically told us he was more than likely not going to survive. "
