Casa Mexicana gets new food truck
RHINELANDER - Casa Mexicana started taking its food on the road around 3 years ago. A recent purchase will make that easier.

The restaurant in Rhinelander bought a new truck and picked it up last week. Alejandro Jacinto flew out to New Jersey to get it and make the long trip back. He's thankful for all the support the community gives.

"We wouldn't be doing what we're doing without the love and support of the community," said Jacinto. "The police officer patrolling out there keeping us safe, the firefighters, the town, just everyone that contributes to this local community is just helping us we just want to help them back by doing what we can."


Casa Mexicana will sell food at the Oneida County Fair and a new event called Project North in September. They hope to start catering at the Hodag Fest next year.

RHINELANDER - It might be difficult to stay fully informed about mental illnesses and diseases.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is trying to change that through public activity.

NAMI is an organization founded in 1979 that attempts to raise awareness about mental health. The Northern Lakes chapter in Rhinelander, which serves Forest, Oneida and Vilas counties, participated in a national Mental Illness Awareness Week from Oct. 6-12.

"So what we're trying to do with Mental Illness Awareness Week is just increase the knowledge that people have about these illnesses and the fact that they're organic illnesses like any other illness you can name," said NAMI Northern Lakes Executive Director Mick Fiocchi.
