PHILLIPS - The coronavirus took a toll on the Phillips community.

"It's been some very uncertain times here in the Phillips area, and as soon as these banners went up it was just a huge uplifting thing," said Stacie Prochnow of Phillips. "It's been great to be able to just show some respect for the veterans that are living in our area or have lived in our area and just to kind of boost our spirits in a very difficult time across the nation."

Stacie Prochnow partnered with the Chamber of Commerce to put up 18 banners of veterans past and present, all with a tie to the Phillips area.

They're also on the Chamber of Commerce website, where Prochnow wants to add pictures of the veterans' relatives under their banner. She's already taken her picture.

"We're standing underneath the banner that I had sponsored for my father-in-law," said Prochnow. "He was a World War II veteran in the United States Navy."

All 18 of the veterans sacrificed to put their country first, and to this day, they still inspire others in the face of hard times.

"It is just a wonderful opportunity for me to show my support for all the dedication that they have done over the years to support our country," said Prochnow.

The banners will be up until Veteran's Day.

You can learn about the honored veterans on the Phillips Area Chamber of Commerce website.

NORTHERN WI - The State of Wisconsin will start to take applications for money to help small businesses get back on their feet.

The 75 million dollar "We're All in Small Business Grant" intends to touch 30 thousand small businesses--distributing 2,500 dollars to each one.

The Oneida County Department of Economic Development says the money will be focused on all areas of Wisconsin including the Northwoods

"The great news is this is not a first come first serve program, it's done really by area and by need," director, Jeff Verdoon,said. "The aid will be divided up by region so we have a good chance for our businesses up here to be able to receive the money."

During the safer at home order, local businesses could apply for small businesses loans, but some had trouble getting approved--others couldn't qualify.

The Rhinelander chamber of commerce which will work closely with businesses applying, says this program is much different from other grants, executive director Lauren Sackett added.

"Some of those other grants require you to already have financial loans," Sackett said. "[The We're All in Grant] will also look at who has already received funding to try and determine essential businesses who may have been missed."

Unlike different programs that may have more restrictions and requirements, local businesses find this application process fairly easy.
