Nicolet College honors costume designer with exhibit
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.

RHINELANDER - Police accuse an Eagle River woman and her ex-husband of threatening and locking up a nurse practitioner in a Minocqua office last week, according to police.

Wednesday in an Oneida County courtroom a judge decided there was enough evidence to move forward with the case against 39-year-old Jillian Buza. According to a criminal complaint the Buzas locked the practitioner in the Marshfield Clinic office because she was trying to wean Jillian off opioids.

Police said her ex-husband held a hatchet and meat tenderizer to the nurse practitioner's face.

MERRILL - As Linda DeBroux walks through Merrill High School, she can see the halls she helped create.

What started as plain, whitewashed walls now look like an art gallery. For each of the last 13 summers, DeBroux has guided a select group of her art students to create murals to fill the walls.

"When I walk down, I don't just see the painting, I see the student, right there, painting on that wall," she said Wednesday. "I think of all the struggles, the struggle points they had, and parts where they celebrated."

Murals by ten students this week will bring the total to 157 on school walls. Like it does every summer, it will take long days to accomplish the project.

RHINELANDER - Nicolet College offers incoming students a faster way to get through the hassle of the college application process.Wednesday's "Quick Start" day in Rhinelander gave students one-on-one attention with career coaches and college advisors.

Nicolet staff walked students through applications, assessments and financial aid to make sure they don't get overwhelmed.

Career coach Angeline von Neupert said "Quick Start" gives students and staff an opportunity to get to know each other.

"It's really neat to get to know the students individually and kind of walk them through the process. It's cool to come together as a team. We're usually scheduling them and then they come back and go back and forth," said von Neupert

Fall classes start in August. If students missed Quick Start day they can schedule a meeting with a Nicolet College advisor.
