EAGLE RIVER - Even with the snow falling down Monday, some people can't take a snow day.
Taxi drivers in the Northwoods can help people who can't drive make it to doctor's appointments, grocery stores and even lend a hand when their car breaks down.
Eagle River Taxi Service driver Kurt Schels says the snow is just another part of his job.
"Us not driving in the snow is not an option. When people call us one way or the other we are going. It might take us longer because of the road conditions but we are going to pick them up somehow. We will not leave somebody stranded."
Schels says a common call he gets is taking people to a rental car shop after they slipped into a ditch while driving.
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.
