MINOCQUA - The Lakeland Union baseball team traveled south for most of its games.
Because of that, it has managed to avoid a lot of the cancellations that have hit the rest of the Northwoods.
The T-Birds have played seven games, which is more than most of the other area schools.
All of those games have been played over an hour and a half away from Minocqua.
They were all the way down in Mauston Thursday for a doubleheader with Northland Pines.
Coping with that travel has been a fact of life for teams in the Northwoods.
"You know, it has not been terrible," head coach Mike Wilhelm said. "I've been pretty good about reminding them how to manage time and things like that, so we've been OK with that. It's one of those things that we just have to deal with and we can't control Wisconsin weather in the Northwoods."
The T-Birds are scheduled to take on Tomahawk next Thursday.
The recent warmup means that game has a much higher chance of going ahead as planned.
RHINELANDER - A man died near the entrance of Nicolet College in Rhinelander on Thursday afternoon.
Neither the campus nor the public were in danger, according to the Oneida Co. Sheriff's Office. Due to the circumstances of the man's death, Newswatch 12 is not releasing more information, but there appears to be nothing suspicious about the death.
Police got a report at 3:55 p.m. about a man lying face down near the entry drive to Nicolet College. Emergency responders took him to St. Mary's Hospital, but he died.
The Oneida Co. Sheriff's Office, Rhinelander Fire Department, Pelican First Responders, and Oneida Co. Medical Examiner's Office were involved in the response.
ARBOR VITAE - Do you know where your food comes from? Kindergarteners at Arbor Vitae-Woodruff elementary do. They have been growing their own fruits and vegetables all year. On Thursday, their work culminated in a final celebration as part of the first-ever Wisconsin School Garden Day.
Each kindergartner was partnered with a fifth grader to help them with planting and weeding.
Organizer Adriane Morabito said it is important for young people to know where their food comes from.
"It teaches them important skills like empathy, compassionate, and kindness," said Morabito. "It also helps them eat healthy."
