Local museum hopes to inspire young artists
RHINELANDER - A local art museum hopes to inspire children to create and appreciate art.

That's why it opened its doors early today for some young artists.

ArtStart in Rhinelander hosted an artist trading card workshop for 4th through 6th graders.

The kids created as many as 20 cards each.

"I made little reindeer kind of like this one. And I basically made, I stuck to the Christmas theme because it's close to the holidays," says 10-year-old Aurora Barthels.

The children traded the cards with each other once they were finished.

It allowed them to start their own art collections.

ArtStart volunteers wanted to host the workshop to get kids and their families interested in art.

"We're in the Northwoods. We don't have access to a lot of museums, art galleries and things like that. So I just really feel it's important to make children and really anyone be well-rounded and appreciative of any of the arts," says ArtStart board member Lenore Mangles.

Old School Arts and Learning Center co-sponsored the event.

MADISON - Republican legislators are circulating a bill aimed at ending the federal requirement to use reformulated gas in six southeastern Wisconsin counties.

The legislation asks President Donald Trump's administration to grant a reprieve from use of the specially formulated gas that reduces ozone pollution. The requirement was implemented in 1995 in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington, Racine and Kenosha counties. Supporters say the gas is no longer needed because of advancements in emission control equipment.

RHINELANDER - An Oneida County detective believes that if a toddler hadn't been left in the care of his stepmother, 28-year-old Ellen Tran, he might still be alive.

Twenty-month-old Avery Edwards died in April of blunt force trauma at a Rhinelander home, and Tran is charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the death. She said the child slipped in the shower, but evidence pointed to an intentional act.

On Wednesday, Ellen Tran's husband, Trung, was also charged in the death of his son. Prosecutors say he knew leaving the toddler with his wife was dangerous, and he deserves some of the blame.
