RHINELANDER - The School District of Rhinelander welcomed a new staff member earlier this week.

Kelly Huseby will be the district's new principal at Crescent Elementary School.

Teri Maney left that position earlier this year to fill the district's Director of Instruction opening.

Huseby worked with the Rhinelander School District before. From 1995 to 2000 she was the lead teacher involved in keeping students up to date with reading and math skills.

Huseby then took a job with the School District of Tomahawk as the director of instruction, associate middle school principal, and reading coordinator.

Huseby says she is happy to be back and is enthusiastic about her new leadership role. She starts next Monday.

EAGLE RIVER - Many of us already put out the scary decorations and pumpkins for some Halloween spirit.

If you're looking to take it up a notch, dress like a zombie and grab your running shoes this Saturday.

The 2016 Zombie 5K Fun Run starts at 5 p.m. at Three Eagle Trail in Eagle River.

Zombie Fun Run is still in great need of runners.

Registration is $30 for a t-shirt and a spot as either a runner or a zombie.

Run times don't matter for this race; it is just a race for the fun.

Runners will be given flags attached to a belt to wear throughout the race.

Zombies will then hide on the trail and run after the runners to steal their flags.

Runners with flags left at the end of the race are the winners.

"It's something different. Nothing you know that is normal," said Hallow Fest co-chair Susie Erikson.

You must be over 13-years-old to participate.

Feel free to come in full costume and make-up for the race.

Registration begins at 4 p.m. on Saturday after Hallow Fest.

You can register up until 15 minutes before the race starts on Saturday.

They came together to encourage voters to get out and vote early.
