RHINELANDER - Rhinelander offers community members a few different options for staying fit.

The city's newest option might be its most creative and affordable.

The Aspirus Community Fitness Center and Heck Pool are getting set for their second year of serving the public.

Both are located inside Rhinelander High School.

"I'd love to see it packed all the time. We don't want these facilities to be Rhinelander's best kept secret. It is used a lot, but we want it to be used even more," says the district's Community Education Coordinator, Mike Cheslock.

The facilities include free weights, machines, cardio equipment, and the pool.

They're used by Hodag sports teams and phy ed classes during the day.

But they're open to the public in the morning, evenings, and on Saturdays.

The school is trying hard to get even more people excited about what they offer.

"The entire month of September is a free membership for Rhinelander employees and their families. The first two weeks of October is a free trial membership for everyone in the community and their family," says Cheslock.

Monthly memberships start at $15 for the general public.

ST. GERMAIN - A brand new rental in St. Germain just opened for business last year. 

"I stumbled across the house and noticed it was vacant," said Roger Bauer.

Three years ago, with grass up to his knees, Roger knew he had a lot of work ahead of him. 

"[It was] a complete gut job, down to the bare studs," said Roger.

Starting work on a house that sat vacant for about 20 years didn't make for the most fun work.

"[It was] was miserable because it was 45 below the first night we started doing demo on the how," said Roger.

VILAS COUNTY - Police still need to arrest the person who killed a Phelps woman back in May.

Hikers found the body of 47-year-old Luann Beckman on a trail near Noseeum Lake.

Investigators then ruled it a homicide and sent all the evidence to the state crime lab in Madison.

The Vilas County Sheriff told Newswatch 12 they've interviewed dozens of people and have a list of suspects, but they need DNA evidence for an arrest.

"We're waiting for the science to point us in the right direction," said Vilas County Sheriff Joe Fath. "It would be wonderful to develop a DNA profile to lead us to somebody. Or be able to get a full profile to be able to compare to people in the area that we've gotten leads on."

Sheriff Fath told Newswatch investigators had to submit some evidence to the FBI crime lab. He said the state crime lab found a partial DNA profile and needs to send it to a place with more advanced technology.

"I mean we still get calls from the community, but it's not substantive," Fath said. "You know it's, I heard this, I heard that, I think this, I think you might want to talk to this guy, which we do. But we will continue to follow up on those leads."

He said investigators do think the suspect is local and someone Beckman knew.
