Green, Ruettgers to enshrined into Packers Hall of Fame
Story By Joe Dufek

GREEN BAY - Two former Packer players are receiving quite an honor.

They have been selected for induction into the Packers Hall of Fame.

Running Back Ahman Green, and Offensive tackle Ken Ruettgers.

Green finished as the Packers all-time rushing leader with 8,322 yards in 8 seasons. He also holds the franchise records for most yards from scrimmage, 1,000-yard seasons, 100-yard games, and rushing attempts.

Green was also a four-time Pro Bowl selection.



Ruettgers was a first round draft pick and played 12 seasons. He was the team's starting left tackle for more than a decade. He played in 156 games - among the longest for an offensive lineman in team history.

They will be inducted in July.

MERRILL - A decade ago, some of the highest rates of suicide in the state came from Lincoln County.

Those numbers have improved slightly since then. But death by suicide is still a major concern in the area.

A billboard in the center of Merrill serves as a reminder. It directs people to call the Hopeline, a free crisis prevention line.

"The mental health coalition has been doing a lot of work in suicide prevention efforts for several years," said Debbie Moellendorf, a co-facilitator for the new Healthy Minds for Lincoln County group.

Moellendorf's coalition is responsible for the billboard, and for trying to change attitudes about mental illness.

TOMAHAWK - FDA Chief Scott Gottlieb calls e-cigarettes use an epidemic among young teens and says he may even consider taking e-cigarettes off the market if sales to teens don't stop.

This has caused some disagreement with Tomahawk residents. Owner of the Northern Lights Vape Shop Tom Simic doesn't think that e-cigarettes themselves are the problem but irresponsible parenting is. He believes they are a good thing because they have helped people, including himself, quit actual cigarettes.

"I haven't had a cigarette since I started vaping, which was five years ago," said Simic. According to him, that's after over 20 years of smoking.
