New Oneida County Sheriff Hartman will step down from community boards
RHINELANDER - Taking the job as the top cop in Oneida County will be plenty of work for new Sheriff Grady Hartman.

That's why Hartman will step down from two other community boards.

Hartman was elected to both the Rhinelander School Board and the Crescent Town Board.

Now, Hartman will resign from both to focus on his Sheriff responsibilities.

He had been on the school board for just under a year.

Hartman was sworn in as Oneida County's new Sheriff last Friday.

MINOCQUA - Owners of wooden boats describe them as labors of love.

"If you're going to own a boat like this, you have to have a commitment," said boat owner Marc Toigo. "It's not optional."

It's the kind of commitment Gordon Moore had when he helped start the Minocqua Antique Wooden & Classic Boat Show 26 years ago. Moore passed away in August, making this weekend's show the first without him.

"We're going to laugh a lot, because he'd want us to," said show organizer Al Hanley. "(Moore) had a great sense of humor, he was a truly unique individual."
