Rhinelander organization highlights young adults for work in community
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander organization wanted to celebrate young adults making a difference in their community. 

Forward Rhinelander announced the first-ever "Top 40 Under 40" winners last week.


The group got more than 50 nominations. The winners included the owners of Culver's, an accountant, and marketing director. 

"The other 10 under 40 [winners], we've either worked with them [and] we know them really well so it's kind of cool to get that group of people together and we've already know them and done business with them," said Culver's owner Josh Clark. 

Forward Rhinelander also wanted to do this because it wanted to showcase Rhinelander as a great place to live with young people and available jobs. 

"We do a lot of share nights which is where we donate 10 percent of the sales from that back to different organizations. What's cool is after five years we're doing multiple with the same organizations," said Clark. 

This year's winners include:
Matthew Berth
Dwight Webb
Brandon Karaba
Tarsie Goes
Ben Meyer
Jen and Josh Clark
Brett Aylesworth
Mike Cheslock
Jessie Dick
Matthew Whalen

ANTIGO -
One Antigo woman needed more space to share her folk medicine knowledge.

To keep up with demand, Kelly Keyser-Millar recently moved her 'Mortar and Pestle' shop right next door from its old location in downtown Antigo.

Digestion problems are a common reason that people come into the shop.

She recommends digestive bitters to get your system moving naturally.

"You're taking it 20 to 30 minutes before you eat. Once your digestive system is ready to go, it helps move the process along. Often where people get digestive upset is just that you're really sluggish," says Kelly.

Having a new workspace means Kelly will be busy brewing more new, folk medicine in the coming weeks.

WAUSAU - More than 115,000 people in Wisconsin live with dementia.

That number will double in the next 20 years, according to the state Department of Health Services.

Northern Wisconsin will likely see some of the biggest effects, with a population aging faster than the rest of the state. Communities and businesses can see the change coming, and at least one business seems well prepared.

"One of the first signs of dementia is financial confusion," said Rhonda Lewis, the Executive Administrative Assistant at Wausau-based River Valley Bank.
