RHINELANDER - More than 29 thousand pounds of food will be distributed tonight at Grace Foursquare Church in Rhinelander.
Ruby's Pantry organizers want to make traffic runs smoothly.
The Oneida County Sheriff's department and the Highway department will help Ruby's Pantry to make sure Highway 17 is clear.
Last time Ruby's Pantry came to Rhinelander, traffic was backed up past Menards.
"The DOT put up a big sign out there by Menards saying Slow Traffic Ahead and things like that. We reconfigured how you can get into the parking lot so things are working much smoother tonight," said John Roe, of Ruby's Pantry.
Shuttle buses will be going to the Church from Menards to avoid too many cars from going through the parking lot.
With this new traffic management plan, Ruby's Pantry organizers expect a successful turnout.
"We packed our truck in Waupaca with 29,333 pounds of food and we are expecting 400 families to come through our lines today," said Roe.
Ruby's Pantry doesn't care if people have used another pantry or aren't considered low income.
The Boulder Junction Town Board voted two to one Tuesday night to move forward with a town plaza plan. The plan will now go to a design phase.
The board estimated the cost of the design phase to be between $30,000 to $50,000, but it was dropped to about $25,000 at the meeting.
Town Chairman Dennis Reuss and Town Supervisor Dennis Duke voted in favor, with Town Supervisor Denny McGann voting against the plan.
A little more than $1 million may not seem like a lot of money to a city like Madison or Milwaukee. But for a town of fewer than one thousand people, it's a lot. The Boulder Junction Town Board could vote Tuesday whether or not to move onto the next phase of a $1.26 million town plaza project.
Dennis Duke has a vision of what Boulder Junction could look like in a few years.
"This one has a much more artistic flair, this has a more engineering flair if you will," said Duke while looking at potential design plans.
THREE LAKES - The DNR hopes it won't find more Northwoods deer with chronic wasting disease.
Last year, a deer on a game farm near Three Lakes tested positive for the deadly disease. Although it hopes that incident is isolated, the DNR wants more data on the health of the Northwoods deer herd.
The agency is urging hunters near Three Lakes to give their deer heads to the DNR for CWD testing.
