Online auction business moves to Merrill
Story By Matt Brooks

MERRILL - A one-of-a kind business opened in Merrill this month. Again and Again uses its website to operate as one part resale store and one part online auction. The owner moved the business from Wausau after three years in the city, partly due to competition.

"In Wausau, I would say yes, the market was already full," said Again and Again owner Jody Malsack. "You were competing against people that were friends of yours and [that] you knew, and you don't want to step on too many toes. So here [in Merrill] it's kind of unique to this area, and I like it that way."

This is the only local business in Merrill to have its own website for online auctions. Items for bid online can also be viewed in person. Malsack decided to move her business to Merrill for a special reason.

"I call Merrill home, and I decided to bring [the business] to our town to try to bring in some people," she said. "Merrill needs new business. There's a lot of businesses that have closed--resale shops and that sort of thing--and I wanted to bring that back."

Again and Again managed to sell half of its items during its first auction. Their next auction will start June 7. Malsack plans to hold two auctions every month.

RHINELANDER - Kids across the country look forward to getting their picture taken with Santa during the holiday season. Santa usually visits busy places like the mall, but these areas can be noisy and overwhelming for kids with autism. That's why Saint Nick made a special trip to Tom's Drawing Board in Rhinelander Sunday.

"This is a nice, quiet place where kids with autism or other sensory issues can come visit me," said Santa Claus.

The Autism Society of Central Wisconsin hosted a sensory-friendly meet and greet with Santa Claus. Families could register to visit during certain time slots so that there weren't too many people there at once.

"We made sure there's no flashing lights, loud music, people screaming or talking really loud," said Santa. 

Kids stayed entertained with sensory-friendly toys and activities while they waited to take their picture with the big man himself.
