NEVA - You normally write out a list of items so you can pick them up at the grocery store.

Now, Neva residents can drop things off.

The Neva Grocery and Gas station opened a Village Post Office.

That means you can drop off flat rate boxes at the grocery store.

Neva is just North of Antigo.

This is the 16th village post office to open in the state of Wisconsin.

The owner of the grocery store says she's gotten a lot of questions.

People want to know if they will take over the post office.

She wants to make it clear they're not doing that.

"No we are not taking over the post office. We are adding to the post office," said Neva Grocery and Gas Station owner, Pamela Becerra.

"We are just providing a service that the post office already provides, but at extended hours."

The new postal center officially opened last week.

The owner says they opened the village post office so they can serve the local community.

"My feeling is that all of the smaller village post offices, like mine are looking at the same thing," Becerra said.

"We are part of our community and we want to provide for our community. They in term are providing for us. So it's a win win situation anyway you look at it."

The grocery store is open seven days a week.

The store is open Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to noon.

RHINELANDER - A lot of people turn to antibiotics to get better but a Veterans Affairs clinic nurse wants elderly patients to avoid getting sick completely.

Coughing into your arm and not your hands in addition to keeping your hands clean stops the spread of droplets. 

These precautions are especially important for older adults. 

"[They're] at a higher risk for contracting community acquired pneumonia," said Nurse Christina Paris who works at the Veterans Affairs Clinic office in Rhinelander. 

"If you do have a cold or flu and you're not as active those fluids and secretions can kind of buildup in your lungs and can trigger old bacterial infections as your immune system is weakened."
