DWD plans to make jobs website easier to use
MADISON - The state of Wisconsin is reworking its jobs site to make it easier for people to post resumes.

The Department of Workforce Development site has plenty of potential. State officials say it saw 6,500 more job listings last year than the year before.

Before, applicants had to put their resume data into a standard form. Now they can post their resume directly or link to an external site.

The department says it has been improving the site since its launch in 2008. Besides resume options, the latest improvements include letting users search jobs by keyword, create profiles of themselves that employers can search, and enabling social media.

RHINELANDER - Stocking your cabinet with vitamins and supplements can take a toll on your wallet, but doing so can keep you healthy.

There are five fundamental supplements you can take to get your health on track.

That includes a multivitamin, a probiotic, vitamin D, omega 3, and fruits and greens.

Our Northwoods climate can leave many people lacking Vitamin D in particular.

"Vitamin D: It is lacking up here. We are all bundled up. We also have a lack of sunshine and our skin isn't exposed to the sun and a lot of people are dealing with winter blues," says Dr. Kelley Embree at Hometown Chiropractic Center.

Hometown Chiropractic plans to host monthly health talks.

The next class on vitamins is January 24th at 6:00 p .m at the Tomahawk location.

ONEIDA COUNTY - Oneida County loggers saw a spike in sales this past year.

Local loggers say that record came as a surprise.

Enterprise Forest Products owner Dennis Schoeneck has been logging for more than 40 years.

"I've been through a lot of ups and downs," said Schoeneck.

One of those downs happened to be last year.
"It rained. It rained so much. [There was] so much rain we couldn't get a break," said Schoeneck.

But to Dennis's surprise, Oneida County broke a two-year-old timber sales record in 2017.

"We're just trying to do the best we can," said Schoeneck.

Oneida County Forestry Director John Bilogan says the record was half a million dollars more than their average annual sales.

"We brought in $1,925,000 worth of timber revenue," said Bilogan.
