RHINELANER - New owners cut the ribbon after remodeling the Culver's in Rhinelander. Jen and Josh Clark took over ownership of the Culver's in Rhinelander last January.
New wood framing along the back of the building adds a Northwoods touch to their Culver's, as well as landscaping and other staining work.
They held a ribbon cutting ceremony today unveiling the upgrades to the building as well as celebrating their new ownership of the restaurant.
"That ribbon is the sign of all the hardwork finally coming together and working out and being exactly what we wanted it to be." Says Jen Clark. "So it's nice."
"We put a lot of work in to this and we couldn't have done it without everybody involved with us and our partners in town." Josh Clark says, "We are just excited to get more and more involved with the community."
The owners want to celebrate with you too. They're offering special deals all weekend long, including a car show on Saturday.

PHILLIPS - The Price County Sheriff's Office wants to find out what it needs to do to get a K-9 officer. Sheriff Brian Schmidt believes a new dog would improve the office's ability to find drugs.
The county doesn't have its own K-9 officer. However, they do turn to other departments for help.
"What we would utilize is surrounding counties, and it is at their discretion," Schmidt said. "Like Rhinelander, we utilize their dog on occasion, maybe once or twice a year. But again, it is their dog, so they have their needs come first. So if we have our own equipment, our needs are met with our equipment."
VILAS COUNTY - Many snowmobile trails in Eagle River still need more grooming after all three trail groomers went out of service. The trails didn't get groomed for four days last week because all three of the Sno-Eagles Snowmobile Club's trail groomers need repairs.
The club hasn't had all of their groomers working for a couple of weeks. Sno-Eagles President Ken Storms said the trails took a big hit last week when all three went down. The club says it has made a concerted effort to catch up with trail grooming, and get the trails smoothed out.
