WAUSAU - After months of scrutiny Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch made his retirement official.
In an email to the county clerk Hoenisch he gave his last day as this Saturday, March 23rd.
Recently Hoenisch has been criticized for spending just two hours in his office in 2013. He's also been under fire for his wife Kim Hoenisch's criminal activity. She was accused of stealing painkillers from parolees while working as a probation officer for the county. She was found guilty in January of burglary, possession of narcotics and possession of a drug without a prescription.
Hoenisch's retirement papers are on their way to Governor Walker. The Governor will pick a new sheriff.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
