Seahawks fan serves Green and Gold supporters at Wausau bar
WAUSAU - Treu's Tic Toc in Wausau looks like your average Packer bar.

But one bartender stands out as a little dot of blue amidst the Green and Gold.

Jessica Rainville will be behind the counter at Treu's during the game Sunday and yes, she's a Seahawks fan.

She said that she loved watching quarterback Russell Wilson when he was at Wisconsin and started supporting the green and blue when he went to Seattle.

Even though nearly everyone she serves is a Packer fan, Rainville says things generally stay civil.

"Well, here it's not too bad because most of the customers know me," Rainville said. "They give me hackle, but it's not that bad."

Rainville is from Wausau originally but lived in Denison, Texas for a bit before moving back home.

RHINELANDER - The Pioneer Park historical complex will reopen Saturday, celebrating its 88th season.

The complex is home to seven museums outlining various aspects of Rhinelander's history.

Director Kerry Bloedorn said he's looking forward to teaching more of that history this upcoming season.

"It's quite a large complex. Lots of ground to cover, lots of great museums," said Bloedorn. "They all work together to make a great place for visitors and locals to check out."

The complex has made a few adjustments in response to COVID-19, like making hand sanitizer available, and putting up signs encouraging social distancing. 

"I'm following very closely and reading up regularly the guidelines that are set forth by the Oneida County Health Department, the WEDC, and the CDC," said Bloedorn.

Bloedorn is confident people will be comfortable distancing themselves due to the openness of the museum.

The complex opens for the season on Saturday, and is free for all.
