Northwood Golf Course updates golf fees, renames bar and grill
RHINELANDER - Northwood Golf Course will go through big changes to climb out of a more than a million dollars in debt. 

One of the most noticeable ones is discounts to people living in Oneida County. Monday night, the City Council learned about updates to rates and fees. 


"The rates are reduced during the week and it also separates out a resident [and] non-resident rate giving an even bigger break to the residents of Oneida County," said Golf Course Superintendent Joe Anderson. 

Anderson says it was obvious the golf course wasn't doing well. Last month, the City Council approved a contract with Green Golf Partners to manage the city-owned golf course. 

"It was obvious that the city could not continue down the same road that they were going with the golf course. It was in financial duress," said Anderson. 

Green Golf Partners is also planning on changing the name of the bar and grill to "The Whipsaw" in hopes of giving it a fresh and catchy name. 
 
Interim City Administrator Keith Kost says prices for seasonal passes will stay the same.

But bikers will have to wait another year for the connection.

The city now expects the path to be finished next August or September.

The project got pushed back because the Wisconsin Department of Transportation can't fund its part of the project this year.

Tomahawk is still ready for the addition.

PELICAN - A group of neighbors in the Town of Pelican found a cluster of caterpillars near their homes on Lake Julia Road.

Last year, the plants hosting the more than 20 monarch caterpillars were mowed over.

This year, the group has a plan to protect the at-risk insects from meeting the same fate.

More than 20 monarch caterpillars have moved into some foliage on Lake Julia Road in Pelican.

"I just thought, 'Oh wonderful, I'll have to protect these,'" said butterfly enthusiast Mary Dork.

Last year, Dork was pleased to find a field of milkweed near her house covered in monarch caterpillars.

"You can always tell where the caterpillars are because of the leaves being eaten," said Dork.

The DNR says monarchs have been at risk of being endangered since 2014.

PRENTICE - Right now, anyone can walk into the Prentice School District building at just about any time.

There's no buzzer system and the front door mostly stays unlocked.

That will all change starting this summer.

Prentice was one of the first districts in Wisconsin to get a state grant for school security. It will install a secure entrance, cameras throughout the school, and a new communication system.
