Northwood Golf Club to open Wednesday
RHINELANDER - Temperatures were in the 70's today. That means spring is finally back in the Northwoods.

One sure sign, the opening of area golf courses. Northwood Golf Club in Rhinelander will welcome golfers tomorrow- that's two weeks later than most years.

Dust off the clubs because all 18 holes will be open. The long winter didn't help course preparations. But it's great to finally get the season started.

MINOCQUA -
Schools across the Northwoods and the state received millions of dollars in grant money to make their buildings safer this year. But a huge safety risk happens before your children even get to their schools.

Children have been hurt and killed in crashes at bus stops across the country, and drivers in the area say it's a problem here, too.

During one Lakeland Area bus's last stops of the day, a car zoomed by on Highway 47, completely disregarding the bus's stop sign. Apparently that violation isn't uncommon. 

"As bus drivers in the United States, children are at danger every day," said Lakeland Area Bus Terminal Manager Kim Hazelett.

Hazelett was horrified when she heard three children in Indiana were killed after being hit by a car at their bus stop.

"It kind of hit a sore sport with me," said Hazelett.

EAGLE RIVER - A special state committee made its recommendations about Wisconsin's juvenile corrections system after spending months studying the issue. One of its 25 members was Vilas County Sheriff Joe Fath.

Governor Scott Walker got the Juvenile Corrections Study Committee started back in July. He wanted to get some feedback on what types of facilities should be built to replace Lincoln Hills, which is set to close in 2021, and what types of programming they should have.

Sheriff Fath says 60 percent of kids held in Lincoln Hills come from the Milwaukee area. To provide more family support to those kids, the committee suggested placing one facility there.

RHINELANDER - Not many people like to drive in the winter. A vehicle break-down can add more to the headache. With snow already beginning to fall, auto shops are busy. People are bringing their vehicles in to have them checked and to be ready for the season. Some of the most common things people should have checked include the battery, windshield wipers, and windshield washer fluid. However, the most common issue that actually causes a car to have problems is actually with the heat itself.

"People start to have a no heat condition which could be related to a faulty thermostat; or also when you get a no heat condition, it could have been that the coolant is low and you never would have known that you didn't have heat during the warmer months so that would…could signify an internal engine problem or just an external leak," says James Maze, Owner of Maze Certified Auto Repair.
