TOMAHAWK -
Not many entrepreneurs chose to start a new business during the current pandemic, but Up North Nutrition in Tomahawk did because of COVID-19.

Owner Katelyn Hammerbeck says with all three of those-- each combo is 200 calories and gives all the nutrients that you would get from one meal.


"The nutrients you are getting is actually the equivalency of 1500 calories worth of balanced grocery store food in 200 calories," Hammerbeck said.


 There are over 20 different flavors to choose from and options that suit every diet.

"Whether it's gluten free or vegan or dairy free we have options that meet every person's needs and accommodate allergies as well," Hammerbeck added.

Hours are currently limited to Thursdays, Fridays and the occasional Saturday but Up North Nutrition will expand those in the near future.

THREE LAKES - The Three Lakes School District will host its high school graduation ceremony in-person Thursday, the first event of its kind in the Northwoods.

"One thing we have done is probably over plan. But in this case, I don't think you can over plan," said District Administrator Teri Maney. "We're keeping it very much within guidelines suggested by the Oneida County Health Department."

Maney says the event was originally slated to take place at the athletic fields, but due to rain, they're ready to move it indoors.

"The big gym has a capacity of 1,350. We figure even with the number of folks attending we would be at under 20% capacity," said Maney.

MINOCQUA - Among all other fish you can catch, walleyes are especially popular in the Northwoods.

30 years ago, the Minocqua chain of lakes had a sustainable population of walleyes; people could fish freely.

But when the population started to fall in the mid-1990's, artificial management became the only option to help restore the numbers.

Oneida County Fisheries Management Biologist Zach Woiak remembers the time when the walleye's population was all due to their natural way of life.

"Historically the Minocqua chain has had a very good walleye fishery that was all based on natural reproduction, so there was no stocking needed," said Woiak.

A local group of stakeholders, including representatives from the DNR, Walleyes for Tomorrow, and the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission came together back in the early 2000's.

The group developed a plan while gathering public input

Woiak says the majority of anglers sided with the stakeholders.

"They were on board with it. We had a lot of public meetings and got a lot of public input. We made sure that all the stakeholders were on board. It's been pretty good," he said.
