RHINELANDER - We got one step closer Friday to seeing construction work begin on a century-old building.

The Rhinelander District Library invited six construction firms to come for interviews later this spring. One of those firms will be chosen to work on a multi-million dollar expansion.

Most of the firms come from Wisconsin and all are from the Great Lakes region.

Director Ed Hughes is pleased with the progress.

"I would like to be moving faster, and I'm sure the architects would like to be moving faster, but I think we're on pace," Hughes said.

The firms will come to Rhinelander for interviews April 29th through May 3rd. The board hopes to make a choice soon after.

WAUSAU - Some veterans worry the community will forget war memories as time goes on.

The Montgomery, Plant, Dudley American Legion Post 10 in Wausau wants to remember one group of U.S. allies in the Vietnam War.

That's the Hmong community in Wausau.

"They hunted the Hmong like animals," said Xeng Xiong, a Hmong veteran living in Wausau.

That's how he described living in Laos once his country fell to communism in 1975.

"So they tried everything to kill Hmong men, Hmong soldiers," Xiong said.

Xiong is one of the many Hmong who escaped to the US after the Vietnam War. As a Hmong, he was targeted by the communist government for his involvement with the US.

"They hated the Hmong people because they labeled Hmong men as the number one enemy who supported United States," Xiong said.

BOULDER JUNCTION - The boat looks like something from a science fiction movie as it creeps across Northwoods lakes at night.

Its long arms jut into the water, sending electrical pulses into the lake.

Under a nearly-full moon on a warm July night, it motors across Sparkling Lake in Vilas County.

"We can actually sneak up on them in the evenings, when it's dark out," says Dr. Noah Lottig, who's driving the boat. "They're up there, they don't see us coming, and we can sneak up on them."
