RHINELANDER - The center, also known as ADRC of the Northwoods, helps people with housing, transportation and benefits.
The ADRC started in 2012. It helps people plan for the future.
Dianne Jacobson is the Oneida County Department on Aging Director.
"There's something about planning for later years that people are adverse to. But we now have professionals that are here to give you the options. It's always the people's options of what they need," said Jacobson.
But the service isn't just for seniors. The ADRC also helps people 18 and older with disabilities.
Workers say that group didn't have a lot of resources before ADRC.
"Whether you're 28 and have a disability, or whether you're 65, the ADRC is here to help you maintain your independence and give you the options for living the life you want," said Jacobson.
The Rhinelander office for the ADRC is located in the Oneida County senior center.
RHINELANDER - Usually when we think of people fighting world hunger, collecting food donations and other community service events come to mind. But a group of kids from Rhinelander are fighting world hunger a different way.
On Sunday, 14 people, including kids in grades five through 12 and some of their parents, set out on a weeklong 250 mile bike ride to raise money. They're all part of Rhinelander's Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Pastor Tammy Barthels says this is a great way for kids to learn about world hunger.
