Culver's Under New Ownership
RHINELANDER - But don't worry, your butter burgers and custard will be as good as ever!

Josh and Jennifer Clark are the new owners of Culver's on Kemp Street in Rhinelander.

They're excited to get to know the community.

The Clarks may be new to the area, but Jennifer has a little history here.

She bought this business from her grandfather.

And her great-grandfather's family established the Rhinelander Pub and Cafe in 1911.

"To be a strong supporter of everyone that does live here and we're looking forward to putting our roots down here." said Jennifer. "So we hope to grow customer base and loyalty."

Jennifer's husband grew up in a small town as well.


Family is his top priority, but employees, customers and the community are all important too.

"It's really nice to know who your providing for. We have 30 employees here." Josh said. "You're providing a lot of livelihood as well so it's very gratifying."

The Clarks will show off the restaurant's new interior at a grand opening in May.

In the meantime, they are open for business.

RHINELANDER - You need to really get outside into nature to truly appreciate it.  That's what Oneida County hopes you experience walking through its new pollinator garden behind the courthouse, which is close to completion.

Workers from Hanson's Garden Village laid out the key part to getting you into that garden along Baird Avenue on Tuesday.  The gravel walkway allows water to drain into the soil, preventing runoff into the street.
