Three Lakes School District gets another safety grant
THREE LAKES - A Northwoods school received another safety grant, but this time it's for more than securing the building.

The Three Lakes School District got more than $28,000. In part, that money will be used to train faculty on student mental health.

"When you talk about mental health it's critical because someone who is struggling, even if they have a headache for the day, they're not going to be an effective learner," said High School Principal Gene Welhoefer. "So addressing their mental health issues is very important."

The training will cover a wide range of topics.

"Some of the trauma informed situations students may be coming from, we're also addressing whole classroom management, and motivational interviewing, in order to better serve our students," said Welhoefer.

Welhoefer said the employee training will also focus on how to encourage students to speak with an adult when they know of another student in crisis.

RHINELANDER - It can cost you a good chunk of change to hire someone to do your taxes. For some, that could mean pulling money from tax returns to do so.

The AARP Foundation's Tax Aide program is coming to Rhinelander to help with tax preparation for free.

The program's tax preparers will meet with people at the Rhinelander Oneida Senior Center to help prepare and e-file tax returns (Federal, State, and Homestead Tax Credits) beginning February 4th. 

Over last few years the Rhinelander site averaged about 500 returns at about $100 dollars per return. That equates to about $50,000 per year for these filers.
