Three Local Districts Go to Referendum Election Submitted: 02/18/2013
Story By Lex Gray


RHINELANDER, THREE LAKES, NORTHLAND PINES - Tuesday, three local school districts will ask whether you'll support them by raising your property taxes.

Rhinelander, Three Lakes and Northland Pines school districts are headed for a referendum election.

Rhinelander is asking for $4 million per year through 2016.

Without that money, some electives, activities, and charter schools will be cut.

Three Lakes is asking for $2.34 million per year through 2018.

If that referendum doesn't pass, Northland Pines or Rhinelander will likely absorb the district, meaning taxes will probably go up no matter what.

Northland Pines wants $2.7 million per year through 2016 to maintain technology and other district programs.

The distict hasn't outlined what cuts they would have to make.

Polls are open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

EAGLE RIVER - After four decades in the business, you might think Leo and Mary Kay Horant would be leaning toward retirement. But Leo would tell you his greenhouse is his vacation spot.

"This is my happy place," Horant said Tuesday morning.  "I'll work 12 hours a day."

Never was that more apparent than eight months ago.  Fire ripped through the Eagle River couple's home and garden center on Highway 70 August 17, 2015.  The Horants' "Gardener's Gate" greenhouse near Pick 'n Save became something of a lifeboat.
