GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers are cutting the ribbon on the team's $146 million renovation and expansion project.

The team celebrates the completion of the south end with 7,000 additional seats, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday.

Other improvements include the ShopKo gate, new video boards, sound system, suites, viewing platforms and 30 new concession stands.

Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and other local leaders will speak at the ceremony.

New season ticket holders have been invited to the event.

Those with seats in the new section will be able to try them out while Packer highlights roll on the video boards.

The renovation project began in 2011.

TOMAHAWK - Two best friends turned into business partners about a year ago.

Bill Eastwood and Blake McMahon own Outboards Bar and Grill in Tomahawk.

The duo's combined restaurant and business experience helped them hit the ground running.

Fish quality comes first at Outboards.

"Friday night is the night that pretty much everyone goes out to eat. So if you don't have a good fish fry, people around here start talking!" say Eastwood.

For people with food intolerance, eating a fish fry platter can be nearly impossible.

So, Outboards offers alternatives like gluten-free beer-battered fish.

"We kind of put a twist on things and do it our own way. You can get fries, but you can get quinoa or a fresh vegetable," says McMahon.

When summertime comes, Outboards' patio overlooks the ski show and music on the river.

Outboards serves fish starting at 11 a.m.

RHINELANDER - Just like many small community courthouses, Oneida County doesn't have any way of keeping guns out of the building.

In response, on Tuesday, the Oneida County Board approved a mandatory active shooter training session for all employees.

"You have to keep your eyes open," said Oneida County Human Resource Director Lisa Charbarneau.

Charbarneau has learned not everyone who walks into the Oneida County Courthouse has good intentions.

"We do deal with not so pleasant things, whether that be social services, removing children from homes, we have inmates in and out for issues in the court," said Charbarneau.

The courthouse has an open door policy with multiple entrances open to the public.
