MOUNT PLEASANT - MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (AP) â€" A community in southeastern Wisconsin is planning ahead in case it becomes the site for a major Foxconn facility.
The Journal Times reports that Mount Pleasant officials are planning to create the position of project director to handle business related to the project.
The Mount Pleasant Village Board is scheduled to meet behind closed doors Monday to outline details of the position, which will include a job description and salary. Any motions from the discussion would be made in open session.
Village president Dave DeGroot says the community needs someone to handle the increased development interest in the area related to the prospect of the Taiwanese manufacturing and technology company coming to the area.
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.
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.
