New toy store opens in Rhinelander
RHINELANDER - With today's technology, getting kids off the couch can challenge any parent.

But a new toy store in Rhinelander is hoping to change that.

Saturday was the grand opening for Imaginuity on Brown Street in downtown Rhinelander.

They have another store in Minocqua.

The manager hopes people have fun while shopping in the store.

"The number one thing we do here is we engage. Nobody walks in the store or by the store without getting a smile. You want hands-on, interaction," said Imaginuity manager, Jessica Hatch.

"Not everybody is shopping, but they're always going to come in here and have a good time."

They opened on Neighborhood Toy Store Day.

That day was set up to kick start the holiday shopping.

"Neighborhood Toy Store Day kind of celebrates how we contribute to the community and the community supports local businesses. We really play on that." Hatch said.

The store is open seven days a week.

Monday thru Saturday: 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M.

Sunday: 10:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.

It's located at 21 S. Brown St.

MERRILL - Merrill Fire Department wants to remind you to stay safe this Thanksgiving.

Deep-frying a turkey is a popular cooking style, but it's also the most dangerous way to prepare your bird.
 
You should never leave the fryer unattended because it only takes seconds to boil over.

Turkey fryer explosions can be massive.

Set up the fryer in an open-air space, away from kids and pets.

"Fire can expand at least two times the size every minute. Leaving for two or three minutes? You're looking at a pretty big fire," firefighter and paramedic Phillip Skoug.

For those deer hunters out there, never place your fryer near your canopy.

You should also never leave food cooking in your kitchen untended either.
