MINOCQUA -
You can help the Oneida County Dive Team by grabbing your goggles and swim cap Saturday (June 23) morning.

Swimmers will launch from Torpy Park for the Minocqua Island Swim Challenge.

The race is one mile long, but people can choose to swim just 400 meters, too.

The water temperature will be about 65 degrees during the race.

"A lot of people will wear wet suits and be very comfortable. I have seen plenty of people go without and have no trouble," says Laura Fuhrman.

Money raised from the race will go to Oneida County's dive team.

They are first responders to water rescue calls.

"We just got our dark vision gear last year through fundraisers like this. It helps us be more efficient and safe," says Assistant Dive Team Leader, Michael Fraley.

You still have time to register in person Friday night from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Torpy Park.

CHIPPEWA FALLS - A World War II veteran who spent more than a year as a prisoner of war is finally being awarded the Purple Heart.

The Leader-Telegram reports that 94-year-old Max Bergen will receive the medal Friday. The Wisconsin man says he's overwhelmed and stunned by the honor.

Bergen was serving on a bomb squadron when he was shot down over Germany in 1944. He was held prisoner at a camp in Austria for 14 months.

Bergen suffered shoulder and ankle wounds in the crash, but he had no paperwork about the injuries because he was immediately taken prisoner. Such documentation is needed for the medal that honors troops injured in combat.

RHINELANDER - Rhinelander's new mayor wants to turn his city into "the best city in America."  It's tough to quantify or gauge that ambitious goal, but Chris Frederickson thinks a curbside appeal project could be a great first step and it's all about using people's desire to compete.

Frederickson launched his Civic Pride Curbside Appeal Contest this week.  The mayor will find 10 homeowners along River Street -- one of the busier streets in town -- willing to have their lawns groomed, primped, and prettied for free.  Homeowners need to sign an easement agreement with the city to allow the work and contest to happen on their properties.

ANTIGO - Ten years ago, an Antigo woman started working as a cook and fill-in waitress at a Country Kitchen, but she didn't want to stop there. 

"I took on management and then a year ago, I decided, well, might as well just buy the place and there [are] always jumps and leaps, but everything has worked out perfectly. I wouldn't change anything," said Lisa Summ.
