First Steps Daycare Opens HouseSubmitted: 01/06/2013
Story By Ryan Abney


RHINELANDER - A new daycare will soon debut in Rhinelander.
Saturday, the new business previewed with an Open House.

Families brought their kids in to get acquainted with First Steps Day Care.
Parents toured the building while kids took toys for a test drive.
Co-owner Trisha Pugh is thinking small as a child care difference-maker.

"We would like to see families that promote us because they're so proud of the way that their children are brought here to feel part of the family. We want to stay small, if we were to expand it would be to make smaller centers.

We just think they're cozy, friendly and made right for families.

Quality is Pugh's mission. She also wants families to know First Steps Daycare is more than a place to park their kids.

"I absolutely love being with children. But I like having families feel safe, and they have someone that they can talk to about raising children. And bounce ideas off about raising children. And I like educating people about childcare."

First Steps Childcare opens its doors January 14th.

RHINELANDER -
Supporters of a second softball field at Pioneer Park in Rhinelander will need to wait for any decision on if those plans can move forward.

The Parks, Buildings and Grounds Committee decided Monday night to hold a public hearing in front of the full city council before deciding on whether it wants to accept the park plans.

The Rhinelander softball program hopes to build a second softball field at Pioneer Park just south of its existing field. The program would use about $50,000 from donations and fundraisers to build the new field.  Softball coach D.J. DeMeyer tells Newswatch 12 the second field would allow the city to host upwards of 70 games a year, including RHS softball games, tournaments, and city recreation leagues.

But the new field would require cutting down nearly 10 trees and take up space routinely used by the fair and farmers' market.  City Administrator Kristina Aschenbrenner says she's heard from plenty of people worried about space issues.
