RHINELANDER - Veterans served our country to protect our freedoms. Today we honor those who made the sacrifice. Earlier today people gathered at the Oneida County Courthouse to pay tribute to our veterans.
"Freedom means I can speak what I feel like as long as it's under control and freedom of religion, and freedom to be with other people, and other races without having a lot of problems," says Bonita Hale, a Veteran of the U.S. Navy.
Sixth through eighth graders from Nativity of our Lord school took part in the ceremony. They sang two songs, including the Star Spangled Banner.
RHINELANDER - Usually when we think of people fighting world hunger, collecting food donations and other community service events come to mind. But a group of kids from Rhinelander are fighting world hunger a different way.
On Sunday, 14 people, including kids in grades five through 12 and some of their parents, set out on a weeklong 250 mile bike ride to raise money. They're all part of Rhinelander's Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Pastor Tammy Barthels says this is a great way for kids to learn about world hunger.
