SAN JOSE - In the NHL last week, Plover native Joe Pavelski has done his part for the San Jose Sharks.
In a Sharks victory over Minnesota, Pavelski scored two points. After getting an assist just seconds earlier, #8 Pavelski lights the lamp.
Then on Saturday, Pavelski scored a power play goal. Pavelski has scored a goal in the last two games and 3 of the last 4. He has 15 goals and 14 assists for 29 points so far this season. He's third on the team in goals.
San Jose is currently in 5th place among the top 8 teams in the Western Conference. The playoffs begin in next week.
RHINELANDER - Usually when we think of people fighting world hunger, collecting food donations and other community service events come to mind. But a group of kids from Rhinelander are fighting world hunger a different way.
On Sunday, 14 people, including kids in grades five through 12 and some of their parents, set out on a weeklong 250 mile bike ride to raise money. They're all part of Rhinelander's Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Pastor Tammy Barthels says this is a great way for kids to learn about world hunger.
