RHINELANDER - Some people used the rainy day Saturday to get some gardening tips.
And it was all for a good cause.
Saturday was the Community Garden Resource Fair in Rhinelander.
It raised money for the Ministry Hospice.
"They're given a diagnosis of 6 months or less to live. On our services they can utilize nurses, social workers, chaplains, volunteers, which I train, and they all help make those days, weeks, months, a little easier for the family as their loved one is going through the dying process," says Melissa Houg, Volunteer Outreach Coordinator for Ministry Hospice.
Four local businesses offered tips and tricks for gardening enthusiasts.
Houg says holding a gardening fundraiser has special significance for the hospice.
"With the gardens, everything's blooming and with hospice it really means hope. and when you look at a flower, you just think of happiness, and it brings a lot of light to life," she says.
The event usually brings in an extra thousand dollars for the hospice.
That helps cover the costs for people who cannot afford hospice care.
MERRILL - The Merrill Police Department need helping finding anyone involved in several acts of vandalism that happened earlier this week.
Brian Schwartz has lived in his home on River Street in Merrill for almost 10 years. His garage, his neighbor's garage, and the public service building down the street were vandalized. Schwartz reported the vandalism to police on Monday.
Schwartz says this is the first time anyone has vandalized his property.
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.
