RHINELANDER - Most of us can refill our plates, cups and bowls anytime we want.
But an annual event in Rhinelander will raise money for those who don't always get their fill.
Nicolet art students are making ceramic bowls for the Empty Bowls event.
It happens Tuesday, April 30 at Nicolet College.
You pay $15 for soup and bread, and you get to take home a hand-crafted bowl.
The money goes to local food pantries.
Laura Wind-Norton's faculty association is co-sponsoring the event.
She says the meal reminds us to be grateful for what we have.
"In a country where we're used to over-indulging, [the idea is] to bring it back to that simplicity and make people realize the situation that some people do find themselves in on a daily basis," Wind-Norton said.
The event happens Tuesday, April 30 from 5 to 7 pm in the Learning Resources Center at Nicolet College.
Reservations can be made by Friday, April 26, by calling the Nicolet College Welcome Center at 715-365-4493.
CRANDON - Terri Burl wanted to ask more questions than make comments during Congressman Sean Duffy's town hall in Crandon on Thursday.
"Everybody's in the state of the unknown right now," Burl said.
Burl, a Republican, was thinking of her 26-year-old son in Oshkosh as she asked Duffy (R-Wausau) about health care concerns. She worries about tax penalties for her uninsured son and the GOP's lack of solid ideas to replace the Affordable Care Act.
MERRILL - The Merrill Police Department need helping finding anyone involved in several acts of vandalism that happened earlier this week.

Schwartz says this is the first time anyone has vandalized his property.
MADISON - The Senate judiciary committee is set to vote on four bills that would impose tougher drunken driving penalties.
