Trig's Riverwalk Updating and Adding New BusinessesSubmitted: 03/26/2013
Story By Kailey Burton


RHINELANDER - The Trig's Plaza in Rhinelander will get a brand new look and a few new businesses by fall. Right now crews are working inside near the back of the store.

By April they hope to start updating the outside, and working on some new businesses.

"The Riverwalk Center Mall is going to see the addition of a Tula's Cafe, it's going to see the addition of a conference center, and it's going to see the addition of a Tone Zone, and hopefully we're going to see a GNC down in there," said Steve Heise, Trig's Rhinelander Store Manager.

The remodel inside is focused on green updates. The new floor will be a polished concrete that can be cleaned without chemicals. They expect LED lights in the freezers, and newer refrigerators will cut energy use by at least 20 percent.

The Tula's cafe mentioned is already a hit in Minocqua... they think it will be just as popular here.

"The Rhinelander store, being surrounded by the business community, is really a destination center. Our deli sees a lot of people come in for lunch, this is just going to be another option for them," said Heise.

Everything you normally shop for at Trigs is still available, just shifted around a little bit. The entire remodel inside should be done by June.

Along with the new fitness facility, and café customers can expect to see some new products on the remodeled shelves.

WHITE LAKE - Students in White Lake spent the day outside of the classroom learning about invasive species today. It was the 16th annual Spring Lake Day at White Lake. It's part of the year-round Adopt-A-Lake program that teaches students about waterway and environmental preservation.

"Being on White Lake and being in the Northwoods, aquatic invasive species education is extremely important," said Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator John Preuss. "And a good way to reach out to people is through our students and through our youth."

Elementary students from White Lake School learned about the different aquatic invasive species such as purple loosestrife, and Eurasian watermilfoil. They also learned how to prevent them from spreading.

"Those plants spread by fragmentation and boat traffic," said Preuss. "And just educating people so they know the right steps to take and the laws to prevent this plant from moving around. We have 15,000 lakes in Wisconsin; just a small percentage have an invasive species."

Students also learned about the spread of a tree killing bug called emerald ash bore.

VILAS COUNTY - A warming climate could have significant impacts on Northwoods streams. Warming streams, in turn, could put pressure on trout populations in those waterways.

"If we think about streams, it is changing, and that's going to potentially change what can live here and the habitats that are available," said Dr. Noah Lottig, an assistant scientist at the UW-Madison Trout Lake Research Station in Boulder Junction. "We've seen that across a whole range of things and a wide variety of studies."

THREE LAKES - Eleven campgrounds in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest closed this year after the U.S. Forest Service reduced its funding and services.
