RHINELANDER - The center, also known as ADRC of the Northwoods, helps people with housing, transportation and benefits.
The ADRC started in 2012. It helps people plan for the future.
Dianne Jacobson is the Oneida County Department on Aging Director.
"There's something about planning for later years that people are adverse to. But we now have professionals that are here to give you the options. It's always the people's options of what they need," said Jacobson.
But the service isn't just for seniors. The ADRC also helps people 18 and older with disabilities.
Workers say that group didn't have a lot of resources before ADRC.
"Whether you're 28 and have a disability, or whether you're 65, the ADRC is here to help you maintain your independence and give you the options for living the life you want," said Jacobson.
The Rhinelander office for the ADRC is located in the Oneida County senior center.
MERRILL - Pete Borchardt claims corruption in the Sheriff's Office cost him the Republican primary for Lincoln County Sheriff.
Borchardt, a Merrill police officer, lost to Sheriff's Lt. Ken Schneider by more than 400 votes in the August race. There's no Democrat on the general election ballot, so it appeared Schneider would coast into office.
But Borchardt's now running a write-in campaign. He thinks he would have won in August, if not for corruption.
"Corruption is not too strong of a word to use," Borchardt said Wednesday. "There are some things that have gone on at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that should not go on in an organization."
