Laska Auctions Moves On-Line
Story By Melissa Constanzer

RHINELANDER - You can shop for just about anything online these days. Now, that include a Northwoods auction house's inventory.

Laska Auctions and Real Estate has now made complete auctions available online. It was an important transition to the owners.

"You can reach hundreds of buyers. Where by doing a garage sale or yard sale you may reach a few dozen," says Pat Laska, Co-owner of Laska Auctions & Real Estate.

While the wider audience is focused within a forty-mile radius, people from much further away can be reached online. The company would ship the products to people who live further away. The owners said they weren't the only ones who wanted to expand online.

"We had a lot of feedback from live auctions that it was really appealing to people to spend as little time there as possible," says Andrew Laska, Co-owner of Laska Auctions & Real Estate.

Now customers can have the opportunity to take their time bidding on items. Online auctions can last for a week. For more information and to view live auctions now visit the link to their website.

MERRILL - Trinity Lutheran School in Merrill doesn't have room for any more kindergarten students next year.

Its class is already full, partly because some families can send their kids to Trinity for free.

For the third straight year, Trinity will participate in Wisconsin's private school choice program.

This year, the state pays tuition for about 30 of Trinity's 120 total students.

"Parents like the Christian base, obviously. That's the main reason people send [their kids] here," said School Administrator Kathy Yahr. "They're keeping them here more now because of the opportunities that we offer."

WISCONSIN - A central Wisconsin state representative believes smaller communities in Wisconsin should not be treated as a welcome center for sex offenders, particularly sexual violent ones.

Democrat State Representative Katrina Shankland voted for a motion in the state budget to keep sex offenders in their original counties where the crimes took place.

However, Governor Scott Walker vetoed that motion in September because it go rid of the rule that keeps offenders away from schools, churches and other places children might be.

Now, there are three new pending sexual violent offenders waiting to be placed in rural areas of Portage County even though the crimes were committed elsewhere.

Shankland is trying once again to keep these offenders in their original home counties with a budget amendment that has already passed the assembly.

However, Governor Scott Walker vetoed that motion in September to keep offenders away from schools, churches and other places children might be.

Now, there are three new pending sexual violent offenders waiting to be placed in rural areas of Portage County even though the crimes were committed elsewhere.
