Rhinelander Area Food Pantry needs your help designing a new logo
RHINELANDER - Calling all artists!

Volunteers at the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry need your help.

They want a new logo.

"We're hoping there's a number of artists in the area who would like to take a
shot at that and be creative and come up with a new logo that we could then use.
It would be on the sign on the building, it would be on the letterhead, it would
be used all over the places that we have events or things like that," said Bill
Vancos of the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry.

They're looking for simple logos that can be printed in both color and black and
white.

The logos should also have the name, "Rhinelander Area Food Pantry" or "RAFP" on
them.

It should also include food items or a grocery shopping image in it.

The pantry gave out more than 469,000 pounds of food last year.

They want to distribute even more this year.

Volunteers hope a new logo will make people more aware of their purpose.

"Normally we're out with our hat in our hand asking for donations or something.
This is kind of a little bit on the side. It's just hopefully a more fun event
that again will just help us in the future as we identify ourselves as we're out
and about in the community," added Vancos.

People can submit their designs to the food pantry though April 30th.

There will be a $100 cash prize.

WAUSAU - You'd never guess it seeing the rows of stocked shelves and fresh paint, but Kevin Korpela's Downtown Grocery store in Wausau once stood as four fire-damaged walls with no roof.

"We had a home to go to, it just wasn't ready yet," Korpela said.

Tuesday morning, Korpela and his wife, Megan Curtes Korpela, showed Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch around their new digs in its old location nearly two years after fire destroyed the grocery on North Third Street.  A teenager tossed a lit cigarette in a dumpster behind the building in September 2015, severely damaging the building, which also housed Evolve Fitness and Sweets on Third.

THREE LAKES - Wisconsin grows nearly two thirds of the nation's cranberries. This year alone, the USDA predicts that the state will produce 5.6 million barrels. James Lake Farms in Three Lakes will produce 25 thousand of those barrels. They're getting ready for the harvest season now. 

President of James Lake Farms Inc. John Stauner loves going to work because his office is 124 acres of cranberry marsh.

He can walk through the windy fields. Or take in the stellar view of the water. 

The marsh sits next to Thunder Lake in Oneida County. When harvest season comes around, that water is used to flood the fields.
