RHINELANDER - After producing just 22 victories in 10 seasons, Jim Moore will not return as Rhinelander's football coach this fall.
Moore has been "relieved of his duties" according to sources.
On Monday, Moore informed his assistant coaches about the decision.
During Monday night's school board meeting at Rhinelander High School, no action was taken on the matter.
All of the coaches are one one-year contracts which need to be renewed.
Rhinelander activities director Brian Paulson said Moore would remain with the school as a physical education teacher and continue as an assistant coach with the Hodag track and field team this school year.
Moore expressed interest in coaching for another school. However, he is also still weighing his options.
After producing the team's first playoff appearance in 25 years in 2012, Rhinelander finished with just one victory last season.
Moore led Wittenberg-Birnamwood to a state championship in 1997.
RHINELANDER - Looking back on his 28 years as airport director, Joe Brauer says he has a lot to be proud of.
"When we got the disabled passenger lift, the non-motorized one, we were very, very proud of that," said Brauer, who's worked as the airport director for 28 years. He's also been in the airline business for 20 years.
Now, the longtime Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport director will be passing things off to a familiar face.
MADISON - The Wisconsin Senate has unanimously approved an $80 million juvenile justice overhaul plan that would close the troubled Lincoln Hills prison by 2021 and replace it with smaller regional facilities.
The Senate voted without any debate Tuesday to pass the plan, which largely mirrors what the Assembly unanimously approved last month.
