MERRILL - A Wausau manufacturer will relocate its operations to Merrill. A big reason for the move is the city provided FreMarq Innovations a $100,000 loan. If FreMarq keeps at least 50 jobs for the next two years, it will not have to pay the loan back.
Merrill City Administrator Dave Johnson said it's a win-win for Fremarq and the city.
"The council did the right thing and they voted to approve this. And now we have this program going and it will be to the benefit of the city," said Johnson.
MINOCQUA - Instead of worrying about blizzards, soon you'll be watching out for thunderstorms. Severe weather season will soon be here.
Our Weatherwatch 12 Meteorologists went to MHLT Elementary in Minocqua Thursday to talk weather with the third grade class.
The students learned how forecasts are made and where the energy for thunderstorms comes from. They also heard about tornadoes, flooding, wind, and hurricanes. It's all part of a weather unit that's been taking place at the school.
MERRILL - President Trump issued the first veto of his presidency last Friday. He rejected a resolution that would have blocked funding for a border wall without congressional approval.
Wisconsin 7th district representative Sean Duffy said Republicans and Democrats agree on about 95% of immigration reform. The wall is where they differ, but Duffy said immigration reform cannot happen without border security.
"To say we're going to do [immigration reform] with an open border I think is insane, stupid, and will never work," said Duffy.
