Story By Morgan Johnson

RHINELANDER - The idea of sprucing up your home after a harsh winter usually offers something to look forward to as the cold drags on.

In fact, home improvement has been the sole focus of an annual event in Rhinelander for the past 35 years. It was called the Hodag Home Show, but will be called the RACC Business Showcase for 2020.

The name is not the only thing changing for this year's event.

Rather than just focusing on home improvements, event and program coordinator Rachel Boehlen wants to include all types of businesses in the Northwoods.

"This year we really wanted to expand the horizons and broaden the scope of the businesses that are in attendance," Boehlen said.

New this year, there will be a DJ and activities for kids to enjoy.


Awards will also be given to booths with the best theme and best attention-getter.

Participating businesses in the event will even get a chance to network before the show.

Boehlen thinks the social is beneficial to the attending businesses.

"It's just a networking opportunity for the businesses who are in the showcase. There will be food, some beverages, and some good music and just a good time," said Boehlen.

Registration for businesses is open until Mar. 13.

Rhinelander High School will host the event on Saturday, Mar. 21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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.
