LAC DU FLAMBEAU - People could walk into the Lake of the Torches Casino and Conference Center in Lac du Flambeau on Wednesday and potentially walk out with a job.

The LDF Business Development Corporation held its second community job fair from 1 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Simpson Electric, Peter Christensen Dental Clinic, and the Country Market made up some of the booths.

At 23 openings, there were about half the job possibilities through the LDFBDC this year compared to last, but Business Development HR director Turquoise Santiesteban thinks that's a positive sign.

NORTHWOODS - Jeff Schweizer doesn't need electricity to camp, but he knows it's a great convenience.

"If it's raining out you got the TV, you got the microwave," said Schweizer.

He and his group of friends used their generators Tuesday night because Franklin Lake Campground in Forest Co. doesn't have direct electrical access.

"Generators make a lot of noise," said Schweizer. "It's nice to have it quiet. When you have electricity you don't have those generators. It's just really enjoyable to be at a campground with electricity."

"Yeah, I'm still in my pajama top this morning," said Tomahawk Public Works Director John Cole with a laugh at about 10 a.m.

The call to Cole came at about 3 a.m. Outside, he found what he called a mini tornado.
