RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander District Library reopened its original Carnegie entrance Tuesday after it was closed in 1984.
The funds to reopen the entrance were provided by a private donors and the Rhinelander Masonic Lodge and the "Re-store the Door campaign.
The library originally opened 114 years ago. The library's cornerstone holds a time capsule from the Rhinelander Masonic Lodge and the Rhinelander Womans Club.
Some people say they are happy to go back to the original entrance.
"The idea of having a main entrance that looks like a library, a lot of libraries never closed their entrances, we did and now we're going back to this one," said Virginia Robertson, the Director of the Rhinelander District Library.
Robertson is also excited to have a door that can weather the elements.
"We've had a little leakage underneath the doors and we'd like to seal them up and have a door that works, all year round," said Robertson.
The library wants to keep the Carnegie entrance open for a long time.
There are also plans to add on to the former Stevens St. entrance.
MINNEAPOLIS - The white Minneapolis police officer who pressed his knee into George Floyd's neck as he begged for air was arrested Friday and charged with murder, as authorities imposed overnight curfews to try to stem violent protests over police killings of African Americans that have spread from Minneapolis to cities across the country.
Protesters smashed windows at CNN headquarters in Atlanta, torched a police car and struck officers with bottles. Large demonstrations in New York, Houston, Washington, D.C., and other cities ranged from people peacefully blocking roads to clashing with police.
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump announced Friday that the United States will cut ties with the World Health Organization.
"China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately $450 million a year," Trump said during a press conference from the White House Rose Garden.
"The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?" he added. "It didn't go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States."
Trump has repeatedly criticized the WHO's response to the coronavirus, which has hit the U.S. worse than any other country, amid scrutiny of his own administration's response to the pandemic. He has claimed WHO is "China-centric" and blames the agency for advising against China travel bans early in the outbreak.
