EAGLE RIVER - A Northwoods potato seed farm recently shared a big announcement.
Felix Zeloski Farms operates 1900 acres in Eagle River.
Zeloski Farms in Eagle River will now run under new ownership.
"It's been a real opportunity for all of us who are employed to do something that's important to the industry and we love it. We enjoy working every day here," said Ron Krueger.
The change took place July 17.
Zeloski Farms was sold to Eagle River Seed Farm LLC.
It's jointly owned and operated by RPE Inc. and CSS Farms.
The new title doesn't mean too many changes.
Krueger and his team of workers will continue to operate all of Zeloski Farms.
"I guess this is the culmination of that, Wysocki Family Farms and CSS Farms decided to come together and purchase this operation and keep it running exactly the way it has been running and allow us to keep doing our jobs," said Krueger.
Leaders at the farm say they won't have any cutbacks.
"It's a win-win for everyone. Now we have a future that we can look at and say, we're going to be here for a long time," said Krueger.
Zeloski Farms sells most of its potato seed to fresh potato growers, chip growers and processors.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
