TOWN OF BRADLEY - An elderly woman caused a two-car crash north of Tomahawk on Tuesday morning.
It happened at the intersection of Highway 8 and County Y around 11 a.m. in the Town of Bradley. An 81-year-old woman turning from Highway 8 onto County Y took the turn too wide and crashed into an SUV sitting at a stop sign.
The elderly woman and a 77-year-old man driving the other car were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Tomahawk Fire Chief John Peeters says fast drivers on Highway 8 made cleanup efforts stressful.
"It makes it very unsafe," Peeters said of passing cars. "You know, we've got people walking around here concentrating on what they're doing and don't realize there are cars coming through."
The 81-year-old woman received a citation from the Wisconsin State Patrol. It took crews about an hour to clear the scene.
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.
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.
