Former Lakeland runners adjust to life at Marquette
MILWAUKEE - There's snow on the ground in Milwaukee, but it doesn't stop Carley Hintz or Stephanie Mauzer from running.

"You're kind of at the bottom and you have to earn your spot," Hintz said.

The two former Lakeland Union T-Birds are on the same team again at Marquette University, where everything is just a little bit bigger.

"I think it's a little different," Hintz said. "You get to see a lot of different cultures in Milwaukee as opposed to Minocqua, but I like it. I like the exposure."


Mauzer will be competing for the first time during the upcoming indoor season, which means an even busier schedule.

"When next semester comes, we have practice four days a week, and so it's a little bit harder with my schedule just because of labs and things like that," Mauzer said.

Hintz has already run in collegiate races, including last year's BIG EAST Outdoor Championships, which she describes as one of her best experiences so far.

"You could see the New York skyline from the track and just the energy of the team is great," Hintz said. "Everybody is always cheering for you."

For these two former teammates, the more things change, the more they're drawn to each other.

"It was awesome having Carley," Mauzer said. "She really influenced my interest in Marquette and I really started looking at it mainly because of her. She was like 'come to Marquette' and I was like 'OK.'"

Even though they're four hours away from Minocqua, Hintz and Mauzer are still thinking of the school made it all possible.

"I think Lakeland prepared me pretty well," Hintz said.

MERRILL - Merrill Paramedics are getting an upgrade to EMT's skill set with Rapid Sequential Intubation.

The procedure requires two paramedics to complete and begins with administering a sedative and paralytic medication.

From their paramedics are able to properly insert a breathing tube and begin ventilation.

Merrill paramedics predict RSI will do more than support critical conditioned patients with oxygen flow, it could save their life.

The difference with the Merrill Rapid Sequential Intubation system is we have the ability to actually sedate and paralyze the patient that is conscious so we can take over control of their breathing and their airway for them and provide them the oxygen and ventilation that they need to support life," Merrill Firefighter and Paramedic, Chris Clabots said.

PHELPS - The small town of Phelps celebrates the 4th of July in a big way every year. But due to the coronavirus, organizers like Amy Thomason had to get a bit creative this year.

"We felt it was really important to find a way to celebrate 4th of July even with all that's going on," said Thomason.

Rather than cancel its popular parade, the town decided to move it to the lake.

"A lot of our community organizations are decorating boats," said Thomason. "It's just a great way to celebrate the 4th of July and keep our social distance. We're all in our own boats."
