EAGLE RIVER - A Northwoods potato seed farm recently shared a big announcement.
Felix Zeloski Farms operates 1900 acres in Eagle River.
Zeloski Farms in Eagle River will now run under new ownership.
"It's been a real opportunity for all of us who are employed to do something that's important to the industry and we love it. We enjoy working every day here," said Ron Krueger.
The change took place July 17.
Zeloski Farms was sold to Eagle River Seed Farm LLC.
It's jointly owned and operated by RPE Inc. and CSS Farms.
The new title doesn't mean too many changes.
Krueger and his team of workers will continue to operate all of Zeloski Farms.
"I guess this is the culmination of that, Wysocki Family Farms and CSS Farms decided to come together and purchase this operation and keep it running exactly the way it has been running and allow us to keep doing our jobs," said Krueger.
Leaders at the farm say they won't have any cutbacks.
"It's a win-win for everyone. Now we have a future that we can look at and say, we're going to be here for a long time," said Krueger.
Zeloski Farms sells most of its potato seed to fresh potato growers, chip growers and processors.
ANTIGO - Messages of support have been pouring in throughout the state since the prom shooting tragedy in Antigo.
Two Antigo women are continuing to support the community by collecting donations not only for the family of the shooting victim, but for the family of the shooter as well.
You can find a box at the Thirsty Soul in Antigo where people are placing words of encouragement, cash, and gift cards for the Wagner and Cooper families.
Lisa Sennholz is a mother of two Antigo High School students. Her son was at prom the night of the shooting. After that night, Lisa knew that something had to be done.
"My first instinct was to do something, to actually reach out and help in some way," said Sennholz. "And I said, I just feel like we need to ask the community to rally around these families and give support."
Lisa and Diane Kondrath, the owner of the Thirsty Soul, originally just hoped to collect cards of encouragement for both the Cooper family and the Wagner family. Soon, they began to collect gift cards and other monetary donations.
"I am overwhelmed with how many people have come in, and cared for both families equally," said Kondrath.
