Janae Antosch leads Mosinee volleyball's title defense
MARATHON - Six seniors on Mosinee's volleyball team graduated at the end of last season, including three all-conference players.

That leaves even more responsibility for Mosinee's all-conference setter, Janae Antosch.

As Janae tries to lead Mosinee to another conference title, she'll have some help from her sister and coach, Aubree.


"It's really interesting because I can talk to her as my sister while she's coaching me, which can help me understand the game better," Janae said.

Aubree also played volleyball at Mosinee before continuing her career at St. Norbert College.

And ever since middle school, Janae has been paying attention to her sister's lessons.

"She's been to all my games and now I get to go to hers, which is really awesome," Aubree said.

Janae serves as her team's primary setter, although she also gets to wear several different hats during the season.

"Just the way we set up defense, it gives me lots of opportunities for digs," Janae said.

Monday night, Janae focused on setting her teammates up, leading them to a two-set victory over Edgar.

"She reminds me a lot of myself because she's very determined at what she does and she's always working to be the best player she can be," Aubree said.

The task will get harder during the year, but Janae looks forward to taking on the challenge with her teammates.

"Including everyone and having fun all the time, that's what got us to where we were," Janae said.

Mosinee will play a tournament at UW-Oshkosh to open its season August 21.

RHINELANDER - Staff working in the YMCA's Children's Learning Center in Rhinelander enjoy what they do.

Many of the staff members have been there for 20 to 30 years. Some are looking to retire soon, which creates opportunities for new workers

They have full time and part time positions open. Those willing to get the proper certification to work there can get some help from the YMCA.

"We can help by tuition reimbursement," said YMCA Child Care Director Diane Zarembka. "There's a couple other programs out there, the T.E.A.C.H. program, that can help with getting people to take credit classes or getting certificates."

MATTOON - Wade Reimer thinks it's pretty simple.

There's a vacant school in the village of Mattoon, southeast of Antigo.

He wants to buy it and turn it into a Christian community center, and, someday, a school.

Reimer says the community is behind him.

But the Unified School District of Antigo is not.

In 2016, people in Mattoon fought as the district closed the school, saying rural elementary schools like Mattoon were too expensive to run. A year later, many of the same people tried unsuccessfully to open their own school district.

VILAS COUNTY - UPDATE 7/18/2019

An earlier version of this report conflated the two criminal complaints filed against contractor Gerald Stodola.

The first complaint filed February 14, concerns Stodola and a homeowner who alleges Stodola failed to inform the homeowner of a delay in construction. The first complaint also alleges theft by contractor.

The second complaint also filed February 14, concerns Stodola and the St. Germain Chamber of Commerce, whose leaders also allege theft by contractor. They believe Stodola used money meant for a new chamber building for other purposes.

The defense argued in both cases that the plaintiffs, both represented by the Asst. District Attorney, did not show probable cause in their complaints.

Judge Neal Nielsen rejected the defenses motion to dismiss the first complaint, saying the fact that Stodola did not finish the job he was hired to do was evidence enough to show probable cause.

Nielsen rejected the defenses motion to dismiss the second complaint because Stodla himself mentioned using funds for the St. Germain project for something else. Nielsen believed that showed probable cause.

Preliminary hearings for both cases are set for September 18, 2019.
