One Antigo woman needed more space to share her folk medicine knowledge.
To keep up with demand, Kelly Keyser-Millar recently moved her 'Mortar and Pestle' shop right next door from its old location in downtown Antigo.
Digestion problems are a common reason that people come into the shop.
She recommends digestive bitters to get your system moving naturally.
"You're taking it 20 to 30 minutes before you eat. Once your digestive system is ready to go, it helps move the process along. Often where people get digestive upset is just that you're really sluggish," says Kelly.
Having a new workspace means Kelly will be busy brewing more new, folk medicine in the coming weeks.
WAUSAU - More than 115,000 people in Wisconsin live with dementia.
That number will double in the next 20 years, according to the state Department of Health Services.
Northern Wisconsin will likely see some of the biggest effects, with a population aging faster than the rest of the state. Communities and businesses can see the change coming, and at least one business seems well prepared.
"One of the first signs of dementia is financial confusion," said Rhonda Lewis, the Executive Administrative Assistant at Wausau-based River Valley Bank.
RHINELANDER - Four part or fulltime city administrators made their way in and out of Rhinelander during the last three years. Unexpected firings and resignations left some people wondering if anyone will come and stay.
Rhinelander could get a new city administrator by Friday afternoon. Rhinelander City Council President George Kirby hopes to find someone who will stick around. Someone who's got the talents of an HR Person, somebody that can help us with our budget process and help us with economic development," said Kirby.
The council thought they found that in past candidates but administrator Kristina Aschenbrenner was fired after only one year in 2016. Then in April, Interim administrator Keith Kost resigned just two months before his contract ended. This hiring round, the council started with 39 applicants and is now down to just three.
Current East Peoria, Illinois City Administrator Jeff Eder plans on having a long term career with the city and is not fazed by the positions' past switch ups.
"In order for the city to really succeed you need to elect officials to provide that overriding vision so we all work towards that vision," said Eder.
