Story By WJFW News Team
TOWN OF CASSIAN - We now know for certain Kaye and Mark Juel died in yesterday's house fire near Harshaw.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office confirmed they were inside the burned home on Partridge Lane in the Town of Cassian.
The two were involved members of the Oneida County community, and we spoke with both Kay and Mark on Newswatch 12 in the past.
Kaye was the Oneida County Jail administrator.
Mark was a Iraq war veteran who served two decades in the military.
Visitation for Mark and Kaye will be held Monday Feb. 18, from 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Carlson Funeral Home in Rhinelander.
The funeral will be at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Harshaw on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 11 a.m.
Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman says, "We are deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden loss of Kaye and her husband Mark. All of the employees in the Sheriff's Office value and honor all of those who have served us in the public safety community and our thoughts and prayers will remain with Kaye and Mark and their families and many friends."
We still don't know the cause of the fire.
A preliminary investigation found no signs of criminal activity, and foul play is not suspected at this time.
PRESQUE ISLE - The art of violin making dates back hundreds of years, and Brian Derber is carrying on the tradition. He wanted to go into furniture making, but fell into instrument design after taking a class in college. In 1999, he opened his own school. It's the only violin making school in Wisconsin.
"The program itself is modeled after a German school of violin making," said New World School of Violin Making Owner Brian Derber. "Students have to fulfill a certain requirement before they can apply to graduate. So the minimum time they are with me is three years."
Students start out by making the body of a violin in their first year. As they progress, they add the scroll and varnish, which can take months for students to finish. Nearing the end of their stay, they can even try to make a cello.
"In the time that I have with students in the school here, I can only give them so much, and then it's time for them to go someplace else and get more knowledge," said Derber.
VILAS COUNTY - Voters can still cast their absentee ballots in person this week for the upcoming April 7 election. Voters have until 5 p.m. on Friday, April 3 to go to their municipal clerk's office to vote.
