Rhinelander boys tennis holds conference match
RHINELANDER - The spring sports season will come to a close here in a few weeks. But for the Rhinelander boys tennis team, they're still finding success late in the season.

The Hodags hosted the Great Northern Conference meet this afternoon. Rhinelander tennis is usually known for its winning ways. That's partly because of their coach, Bob Heideman. He's been with the team for over 30 years.

"He's just so willing to work with players. He goes out of his way to help anyone he can. From the bottom to the top, he's always there working with people and making them an all-around good player," said senior, Logan Wild.

Wild is just one of Rhinelander's three seniors. He was a four-year varsity letterman for the Hodags and is going to miss the team a lot.
"The fact that it's going to be ending is bittersweet. It's nice to end it on our home court and finish out the season strong and hopefully come out with a conference victory," said Wild.

The Great Northern Conference title did in fact go to Rhinelander. Antigo came in second and Medford came in third.

MERRILL - The Merrill Fire Department has a new high-tech fire extinguisher training device.

It allows users to put out a fire without using an actual fire.

Firefighter Bryson Cruise says this is much easier and safer because the old device could only be taught with a real fire outside.

"The screen is reactive to the laser inside the extinguisher and it simulates the fire with both light and sound," explained Cruise.

The device was a gift from three of Merrill's largest businesses, Church Mutual Insurance Company, Weinbrenner Shoe Company and Park City Credit Union.

RHINELANDER - Between 2004 and 2013, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (CNNF) sold and cut just above half of what it could under its own management plan.

That frustrated loggers, politicians, and companies which need timber in northern Wisconsin.

But this year, the CNNF will sell its greatest amount of timber since at least the mid-1990s. It's the fifth increase in a row for the CNNF, which is now finally nearing its maximum yield.
