Crandon woman opens her own dog grooming business
CRANDON - Alyssa Samz spends her days washing, blow drying, and trimming the fur on dogs, and she couldn't be happier.

"It's fun. I love to be able to do something I enjoy every day," said Samz.

Samz spent the last year working for a groomer in Argonne, but now she's decided to branch out on her own.


"If you want to make a living you got to go out and get it yourself," Samz said.

The 21-year-old opened her own dog grooming business in Crandon this week.

With the help of her family, Samz converted an old apartment into Ivy's Downtown Dog Grooming, named after her own dog.

"She's a yellow lab and she's like my baby," said Samz. "Someday she will be a shop dog and be here roaming around."

But until Ivy joins her, Samz has no shortage of dogs to keep her busy.

"It was a leap of faith," said Samz. "I'm glad I went for it."

The shop is located at 100 B Washington St. and is currently open by appointment only. You can call (715)889-0111 to set up an appointment.

TOWN OF PELICAN - Twisted metal and side-curtain air bags gave a pretty good sense of how bad a crash was Wednesday afternoon, but the Town of Pelican's deputy fire chief already knew he needed to work quickly.

"Time is of the essence," Norm Peterson said.

Peterson's department got the 911 page of a two-car crash on Highway 8 and River Bend Road, about two miles east of Rhinelander, around 12:30 p.m.  The cars both ended up in the ditch on the north side of Highway 8, out of traffic.  Police reduced traffic to one lane while medics treated the injured, but cars were able to still get through in both directions.
