Volunteers at the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry need your help.
They want a new logo.
"We're hoping there's a number of artists in the area who would like to take a shot at that and be creative and come up with a new logo that we could then use. It would be on the sign on the building, it would be on the letterhead, it would be used all over the places that we have events or things like that," said Bill Vancos of the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry.
They're looking for simple logos that can be printed in both color and black and white.
The logos should also have the name, "Rhinelander Area Food Pantry" or "RAFP" on them.
It should also include food items or a grocery shopping image in it.
The pantry gave out more than 469,000 pounds of food last year.
They want to distribute even more this year.
Volunteers hope a new logo will make people more aware of their purpose.
"Normally we're out with our hat in our hand asking for donations or something. This is kind of a little bit on the side. It's just hopefully a more fun event that again will just help us in the future as we identify ourselves as we're out and about in the community," added Vancos.
People can submit their designs to the food pantry though April 30th.
RHINELANDER - Nineteen months ago, 10 police agencies surrounded the Tripoli home of Kenneth Welsh.
Police say Welsh caused a three-hour standoff, threatened to blow up his house, and threatened to kill his wife.
Later in court, he was convicted of two felonies and sentenced to three years in prison by Oneida County Judge Michael Bloom.
But now, those convictions and prison sentence have been erased. This month, while in prison, Welsh argued he didn't fully understand all the elements of one of the crimes to which he pleaded no contest, first-degree recklessly endangering safety. Welsh's motion put some of the blame on his defense attorney, Rod Streicher.
RHINELANDER - This holiday season, you might want to tell your child to hug family members at holiday gatherings.
The Girls Scouts of the USA hopes you won't. The organization is saying daughters don't owe anyone physical affection, and that the expectation of hugs and kisses could have bad aftereffects later in life.
"I think for some people, it is a new concept," said Melissa K., the domestic violence coordinator at Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual assault, which is based in Rhinelander.
In a post, the Girl Scouts of the USA told parents their daughters don't "owe anyone a hug. Not even at the holidays."
RHINELANDER - A number of Rhinelander police and firefighters will work a weekend morning shift in December and won't get paid for it. It's an extra task they're happy to help with.
The Rhinelander Police Department's Shop With a Cop program returns December 16. Police and firefighters take 20 third grade students from Crescent, Pelican, Zion, and Nativity schools shopping for Christmas presents at Walmart. The schools recommend students for the event.
