Clark's Renewal to have Conditions
EAGLE RIVER - After a 5-hour School Board Meeting on Monday night - Ryan Clark will return as the Northland Pines boys basketball coach.

Clark's contract was renewed for one year. That is the standard length for all Pines coaches.

Around 70 people came to the meeting. The majority supported Clark.

District Admisitrator Mike Richie told Newswatch 12 the possible change had nothing to do with wins and losses.


Newswatch 12 obtained a letter sent to Richie back in December. Alligations in the letter claimed "too many practices both morning and night" and "the screaming and yelling" at players.

Richie adds the board has direct adminisitration to add stipulations and expectations. That's to address potential concerns. Richie says it's been done in the past.

ONEIDA COUNTY - Oneida County loggers saw a spike in sales this past year.

Local loggers say that record came as a surprise.

Enterprise Forest Products owner Dennis Schoeneck has been logging for more than 40 years.

"I've been through a lot of ups and downs," said Schoeneck.

One of those downs happened to be last year.
"It rained. It rained so much. [There was] so much rain we couldn't get a break," said Schoeneck.

But to Dennis's surprise, Oneida County broke a two-year-old timber sales record in 2017.

"We're just trying to do the best we can," said Schoeneck.

Oneida County Forestry Director John Bilogan says the record was half a million dollars more than their average annual sales.

"We brought in $1,925,000 worth of timber revenue," said Bilogan.
