RHINELANDER - You go to a play to see and hear a story.

But sometimes the costumes steal the show.

Now you can see some of those show-stealing costumes designed by a local costume designer.

Kay Anderson has been designing costumes for all Nicolet College community productions for the last 18 years.

She's worked on 36 shows and has spent a lot of time making costumes - as much as 30 hours for one outfit.

"I auditioned for a play and got into that cast and after that they found out I could sew. And so that's how it came to the costume designing," says costume designer Kay Anderson.

The most amazing thing is she's a volunteer and hasn't earned a cent for all that work.

But she's happy to do it.

"I think costumes make the character. A lot of times there's something that says something about the character to the audience. And so when you're designing a costume, you think about what that character is and what kind of costume they need to be wearing to be more of that character, to really represent that character to the audience," she explains.

Nicolet College has Anderson's costumes on display in its art gallery in the Learning Resources Center.

You can check them out until November 17th.

Leadership Oneida County is a nine month course offered to people who strive to be leaders. About 100 graduates of the course come from various backgrounds but have the same reason to take it.

"Go through this course to learn more about their community and learn more about their personal strengths as leaders, and to build their own professional network. The point of the course is to really connect leaders to their community," said Tim Brown, UW-Extension Community Resource Development.

Mining company pushes back permit timelineSubmitted: 08/27/2014

MILWAUKEE - Gogebic Taconite will take longer than originally planned to apply for a mining permit in northern Wisconsin.

The company says its application to develop an iron ore mine in Ashland and Iron counties will be pushed back until at least the fall of next year.

Gogebic had planned to submit an application in the spring of 2015 to develop a 1.5 billion dollar iron ore mine in the Lake Superior region.

A company spokesman says Gogebic won't finish all fieldwork this year and will be forced to conduct additional environmental work next year.

The approaching of fall is prompting Gogebic to wrap up some fieldwork already.

Potawatomi withhold payment to WisconsinSubmitted: 08/26/2014

MADISON - The Forest County Potawatomi say they have not made their annual revenue sharing payment to the state of Wisconsin for their casino in Milwaukee because they anticipate the state will owe them money if Gov. Scott Walker approves a casino in Kenosha.

The Potawatomi released a statement Tuesday after Walker's office sent out an update on the casino project that noted the tribe had missed its payment. The tribe says the money has been placed in a segregated account.

The Menominee Tribe wants to open an off-reservation casino in Kenosha to help pull its members out of poverty. A final decision on the project rests with Walker.
