RHINELANDER - Rhinelander police need your help with a hit and run accident from this evening.
A minivan hit a motorcycle around 5:30 this evening.
The motorcyclist told our reporter the minivan hit him.
The accident happened right outside of the Paper Mill on Davenport and Pelican street.
The motorcyclist had a few scratches on his back, but was ok.
He refused to go to the hospital.
Rhinelander police says video from surveillance cameras at the mill will help find the driver of the minivan.
"The Paper Mill has some exterior video to monitor Davenport street traffic. So it will give us better picture and video of what exactly happened in the accident," said Rhinelander police sergeant, Kurt Helke.
"But at this time we are looking for that second vehicle. So we could talk to the driver. The quicker they would cooperate and identify themselves to police would prevent further additional charges."
Police don't know how the accident happened.
They think the video will help them get the license plate number.
"That's another thing we're going to have to look at the video image to see if we can enhance it to get the detail of the license plate," Helke said.
"Right now we have a pretty good idea of the make and model of the vehicle. And we'll gather further details as we progress."
Police say there will be additional charges if the crime doesn't come forward.
MINOCQUA - By the time most of us finish breakfast, we already start planning what to eat for lunch.
For some kids all around the world, that next meal sometimes never comes.
The Food for Kidz Minocqua committee will lend a helping hand to change that Saturday morning.
Lakeland Union High School's common area will transform into a full-blown assembly line.
Food for Kidz volunteers will pour and pack ingredients into plastic bags.
The goal is 175,000 packed meals.
Food for Kidz needs more volunteers by tomorrow to meet that goal.
"If you haven't experienced this, come out and try it and you'll go away with just a great feeling," said Food for Kidz co-chair John Breiten.
Kids and adults of all ages are welcome to walk in to volunteer.
The food packages will be shipped off to anywhere from Honduras to Mozambique.
Some special meals will be set aside and sent to local communities in the Northwoods.
"It's just a great, fun community event. I think the kids especially take something away that they are giving beyond themselves," said Food for Kidz sponsor and Lakeland Union High School Spanish teacher Karen Roerich.
Walk-in volunteers are welcome to attend either packing shift tomorrow morning.
The first shift is from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. The second shift is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
If you can't make it out to Lakeland Union High School Saturday, donations are always welcome.
