Minocqua home show looks to draw people of all ages, interests
MINOCQUA - As it starts to feel more like spring, people may begin to think about doing some home improvement. They can stop by the Minocqua Home, Lifestyle and Recreation Show this Saturday for some ideas and tips.


More than 50 vendors from all over Wisconsin will be on hand to demonstrate their goods and answer questions.

However, the event isn't just a home show. Organizers want the show to cater to all members of the community.

"Some individuals may want some information on recreational activities that they can do in the area," said Minocqua Area Chamber of Commerce Community & Events Coordinator Anne Pertile. "People that are visiting the area want to know a little bit more about that. The residents in this area or beyond may want to look at home improvements. There are individuals that are looking at health and wellness."

There will be a blood drive, healthcare presentations, and a visit from the Spirit helicopter. Members of the Lakeland Union High School band and choir will be performing, too.

"We haven't forgotten the little ones as well," Pertile added. "The Northland Head Start program will be there [and] will have activities for little kids to do. And so it's just a plethora of activities for everyone of all ages."

The show runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at Lakeland Union High School.

MERRILL - Pete Borchardt claims corruption in the Sheriff's Office cost him the Republican primary for Lincoln County Sheriff.

Borchardt, a Merrill police officer, lost to Sheriff's Lt. Ken Schneider by more than 400 votes in the August race. There's no Democrat on the general election ballot, so it appeared Schneider would coast into office.

But Borchardt's now running a write-in campaign. He thinks he would have won in August, if not for corruption.

"Corruption is not too strong of a word to use," Borchardt said Wednesday. "There are some things that have gone on at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that should not go on in an organization."
