THREE LAKES - Raising money for an entire classroom to take a trip out of state might seem like a daunting task, but that's what one local junior high school is trying to do.

Students at Three Lakes Junior High School are raising money for eighth graders to go to Washington D.C.

It will take $40,000 for all 37 students to go.

The class is just $1000 short of its goal.

"The three lakes community and the sugar camp community support this program," said eighth grade teacher, Donna Welhoefer.

"They support the school to an incredible extent and if we didn't have community members, staff members here at school like we do, we would have never been able to achieve this goal."

One of the students says he's gotten to know his community better and is grateful for all the support.

"It's great to see all the community decide to chip in, come out here and have some fun," said eighth grade student, Tommy Stuckart.

"I couldn't ask for more from the whole community to help us out."

They're also collecting aluminum cans to raise money.

That will go until March 21st.

ELCHO - If you pass through Elcho, you can't miss the hundreds of Christmas lights as you drive down Highway 45.

The Elcho Christmas staple is all thanks to a couple who spends weeks setting up the display, after they spend most of their time saving lives.

Carl Bloechl and Lissa Iwanoski are both EMTs. Carl is also a R.N. in Antigo.

For four years now, the couple sets up decorations at an office building off of Highway 45 in Elcho.

It takes a couple of weeks and they use their time in between shifts to get the job done.

"We just hope we don't get called. Sometimes we do get called and we just drop it all and leave it out here and go," said Bloechl.

The cold winter weather usually slows down the set up, but this year's warmer weather allowed the couple to enjoy the visitors earlier.

"It makes me feel good inside that they enjoy it too, because it is work," said Iwanowski.

The display will be on until the beginning of next year.

The lights stay on from around 4:00 p.m. through 11:00 p.m.
