Milky Way Coffee Company opens new shop in Woodruff
WOODRUFF - A Northwoods coffee shop known for its food truck operation recently found a permanent location. The Milky Way Coffee Company had the grand opening of its new shop in Woodruff Sunday.

The new coffee house is inside the Lakeland Plaza which sits on the corner of Highway 51 and Townline Road. The two sisters who own the company converted what was once a bank into a coffee shop.


"When we had the opportunity to come and talk to the landlord here about leasing space we came in, looked at the teller stations, looked at the drive through window and said 'Yeah, we can make this work,'" said owner Barb Guerra.

The owners say they plan to stay open seven days a week in summer and six days a week in winter.
They added that they have dog treats for any customers that bring their four-legged friend through the drive-through.

ONEIDA COUNTY - UPDATE:

Traffic was backed up for a long way in both directions on a busy Northwoods highway Friday around 9:30 am.

Medics, police, and firefighters all rushed to a head-on crash west of Rhinelander.

Ambulances raced by while cars came to a standstill on Highway 8.The crash blocked traffic, but many people sitting in theirs cars couldn't see why traffic wasn't moving.

"Oh, I've been sitting here for about an hour," said Connie Anderson.

Anderson was on her way to Southern Wisconsin when she realized she wasn't going to make it there anytime soon.

First responders from Woodboro, Nokomis, Crescent, and Newbold all were called to the crash about three miles east of Highway 51.

The State Patrol reports a black Chevy lost control, crossed the center line, and hit a gold Buick.

"Possibly could have been due to the roadway being a little covered in snow and slushy," said Deputy Michael Baran.

Firefighters cut their way through driver and passenger doors to reach victims.

"The jaws of life were used in the vehicles in order to safely extract the individuals from the vehicles," said Baran.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office said five people were hurt. Deputy Baran said one person was severely injured.

"The roadway played a little factor in it. People not adjusting to the winter driving right now," said Baran.

Drivers needed to adjust to a detour over to Highway K. At 2:30 p.m., that detour was still in place.

"People just need to remember to drive slowly when It's adverse weather conditions," said Baran.

State Patrol said the driver of the black Chevy was hurt the worst and taken to Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

Four other people were taken to Ascension Sacred Heart and St. Mary's Hospital.

RHINELANDER - Many people plan to fill their bellies this Thanksgiving with plenty of turkey.

However, local firefighters warn using turkey fryers can be one of the most dangerous cooking tools.

Rhinelander firefighter Luke Drummond said Thanksgiving keeps his team working around the clock.

"Thanksgiving is actually the busiest day of the year for structure fires," said Drummond. "Turkey fryers are a big thing. Obviously, oil and water don't mix. So, if you have that water in with your hot oil, there's going to be a reaction. And it's a pretty violent explosive reaction."

Drummond said you should never leave a fryer unattended.

Turkey fryer explosions can be massive and can expand at least two times its size every minute.
