Nicolet College Creates New Chapter for Administrative Program
RHINELANDER - Manufacturing jobs get a lot of attention in the Northwoods and for a good reason, but an area college hopes to help office workers find jobs too.

Nicolet College created a chapter of the International Association of Administrative Professionals.

The chapter helps to provide growth in education, community building and leadership development in clerical fields.

The chapter in Wausau mentored the college.

They felt the need to share it with the rest of the Northwoods community.

"The closest chapter is in Wausau, which is quite a distance and we do have a big workforce in this area that Nicolet College serves," said Administrative Program Instructor, Helen Fries.

"Really there's not an opportunity for the people here to belong to a professional organization like this."

The organization helps Adminstrative workers first and foremost, but it's not limit to people who have that exact job title.

"This includes all those job titles. So it can be administrative assistant, an executive assistant, a secretary, a clerk, an office manager. All of those people have a stake in this organization.", Fries said.

The first meeting will be held at Nicolet College on Febraury 27th at the Tamarack Center.

"Clients have been showing us tattoos they want while donating," said Haven Ink Tattoos co- owner and artist Megan Hunt.
A simple prick of a needle goes a long way at Haven Ink Tattoos in Minocqua.
"There are a lot of myths that exist and it goes back to old stimulations as far as donating blood," said Haven Ink Tattoos co- owner and artist Dani Bauer.
"[You can] participate in a good cause and get a tattoo after so you get two memories in a day," said blood donor Tanner Lillie. 

People get a permanent mark while making one on someone's life.
Hunt and Bauer teamed up with Talitha Uhrmann from The Community Blood Center to bring a blood bank to the shop. Everyone who donated blood got 20 percent off a tattoo.
Every person that donated blood can save three lives including the one in seven people hospitalized that will need a blood transfusion.

NORTHWOODS - Most people come to the Northwoods to enjoy our lakes and all the activities they offer, including water skiing.

But that sport can be dangerous and a new law will change the requirements designed to keep skiers safe.

Late last month Governor Walker signed a bill into law that eliminates the requirement for water skiing spotters, as long as the boat being used has the right equipment.

Some skiers around the Northwoods say the new law is a good idea, but following the old rules may still be the safest thing to do.
