BIRON, WIS. - A nearly $200 million paper mill project in Wood County will get state support while helping to create more than two dozen jobs.
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) announced $1.7 million in tax credits Wednesday for ND Paper in Biron, which is just north of Wisconsin Rapids.
ND Paper plans to convert a machine from making white paper into corrugated material for boxes. The company will also build a recycled pulp, water treatment, and fiber recovery plants. The total cost of the project is $189 million.
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."
MADISON - Wisconsin-based convenience store chain Kwik Trip has removed some vegetable trays from its stores after several reported illnesses in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Health officials say the Del Monte vegetable trays, which included broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip, have been linked to salmonella bacteria. So far, it has sickened three people in Wisconsin and one in Minnesota. Symptoms of salmonellosis are similar to the flu.
