RHINELANDER - Only a few more weeks till school is out for summer and seniors are busy finalizing their plans for college. A Hodag volleyball star is heading to Minnesota.
Taylor Wissbroecker made it official today. She'll be playing women's volleyball for the University of Minnesota at Duluth.
Wissbroecker signed her National Letter of Intent this morning at Rhinelander High School.
She was the 2012 Great Northern Conference player of the year and led the conference in both kills and blocks. Wissbroecker visited the campus in Duluth in March and made a verbal commitment and she's confident she made the right choice.
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander couple thought they were empty nesters. However, an experience volunteering made them open their doors back up to kids who need a temporary home. The Zoerb's adult children moved out years ago. But at any moment they could get a call from social services that make them bring out their parenting skills for another round. Rick and Danielle Zoerb work together as realtors putting people in homes that are the perfect fit. However, the husband and wife know their home can be a good fit for others too. "There's no reason for kids to have to fall through the cracks," said Dani. Rick met a child at a mentorship program a few years ago. It was a meeting that opened a new door for him and his wife. "There was no hesitation on our part when we felt the situation was deteriorating for this young boy," said Rick.
