Chinese Students Finish Stay at Pines
ST. GERMAIN - Ten Chinese students discovered everything from American manners to pizza in the Northland Pines School District.

They were here for three weeks.

Now the group is about to head back home after their immersion in the Northwoods.

The group visited grade schoolers at St. Germain Elementary Wednesday to teach the students about their home.

The Chinese students have experienced a little of of everything during their time here.

But the most fun often came after school hours.

"Many things, but the thing I love most is outside activities, like snow tubing and cross country skiing. That is super fun for me," says Eric Miao, one of the exchange students.

The group heads back home Friday.

Later this spring, two Northland Pines High Schoolers will travel to China for a week and a half as part of the same program.

RHINELANDER - Those looking for jobs in manufacturing don't have to go to a big city to get a job. There are a lot of opportunities right here in the Northwoods.

Nicolet College held a manufacturing expo with both educators and employers Wednesday to show the community what opportunities are available in the field.

"It's just a really good opportunity to see what the education pathway looks like for manufacturing, but then also that end game at the very end to see what the sacrifice was worth when you look at employment opportunities," said Nicolet College Career Coach Angeline Kesler.

SUGAR CAMP - Equipped with a box full of tools and their trusty canoe, Aubrey Nycz and Tom Boisvert hit the water ready to search Wednesday morning.

The duo from the Oneida County Aquatic Invasive Species program hunted Paradise Lake northwest of Sugar Camp for items like Chinese mystery snails and Eurasian Watermilfoil, noting where they're located and how much of the species there is in the area.

So it makes sense that one Northwoods museum would see the historical importance behind water. The Three Lakes Historical Museum has an exhibit up now that talks about how water has shaped Wisconsin from the ice age to today.
