Hanson's Garden Village celebrates First Day of Spring
RHINELANDER - Getting a first look at spring's flowers, trees, and shrubs sounds like a dream come true for the gardeners out there.

Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander is celebrating the start of the season by giving its customers a sneak peek this weekend.

Gardeners can stop in to talk about new plant varieties and get a greenhouse tour.


Spring also means there will be different planting classes every week during April and May. 
  
It's still too early in the season to get your hands dirty in your garden though; you'll have to wait until frost advisories go away. 

"End of April to beginning of June is when we are the busiest," said Beth Hanson of Hanson's Garden Village. "Everyone is wanting to get all their plants out and planted before Memorial Day weekend. Everyone is getting their vegetables in the garden. If they started seed at home, that's the time to get the outside." 

Even though planting season hasn't started just yet, Hanson's is open during the week for customers. 

You'll need to RSVP for this weekend's spring preview. 

The open house starts at 11 a.m. Saturday.

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."

TOMAHAWK - To sisters Kathy and Julia, Thanksgiving Day is about more than just turkey, potatoes, and prep work. 

"[It's] kind of always been a special holiday for my parents, who are no longer with us," said Julia Pankow.
