Rennes Health & Rehab Center to host grand opening
RHINELANDER - Rennes Health & Rehab Center moved from Phelps to Rhinelander this winter.

The 72-bed facility opened its doors March 1.

"We just knew that Rhinelander is really the hub of the medical field here in northern Wisconsin," said administrator Kelsy Bontz. "So we just felt that moving here and having access to hospitals and doctors in this area is really a great thing for our residents."

Bontz says they've hired about 25 people for the new building.

Rennes works with both Aspirus and Ministry.

You can check out the new facility at the grand opening June 22 from 1:00 to 3:00.

PHILLIPS - In Missouri, the ruffed grouse population could vanish in the next few years. The bird is losing its habitat, and a state conservationist calls the situation "perilous."

That trend convinced biologists to try something creative with help from Wisconsin.

Over the last month, the Missouri Department of Conservation has scouted, set up, and collected grouse from specially-designed traps in Price, Lincoln, and two other Northwoods counties. This weekend, the Missouri team caught and moved its 100th and final grouse to Missouri.

It's an effort that's needed for that state, which hasn't had a grouse hunt since 2011 because of dwindling populations of the native bird. This is the first year of a three-year project to move 300 healthy grouse from the Northwoods to land in Missouri just west of St. Louis.
