RHINELANDER - The School District of Rhinelander is working with the Oneida County Sheriff's Department to investigate thefts at the high school.
Cash has been stolen out of the lockers in the locker rooms.
The sheriff's department says it's been happening throughout the school year.
But it isn't a completely new problem.
"Thefts from the locker room at the high school have been an ongoing problem for years. When the high school remodeled, they bought different lockers," said Oneida County Sheriff's Department, Lieutenant, Lloyd Gauthier.
"The lockers that were there prior, they were susceptible to be broken into. The newer lockers are very safe as long as the students use a pad lock that's given to them."
The department is hoping to prevent more thefts.
Deputies are telling students not to take everything with them to class.
"Do they really need to take a large amount of cash, jewelry or cell phones; things of that nature maybe could be left in the main locker where it's secured," said Gauthier.
"Think about where they're going to be all throughout the day and what they really need instead of taking everything with them. Maybe forgetting to secure those things and then they may come up missing."
The department isn't saying what was stolen because they're still investigating.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
