Published on 08/22/2017 under News The Powerball jackpot continues to grow with no weekend winner, but several large sum winning tickets were sold right here in the Northwoods this past weekend. According to the lottery association, there were three Wisconsin tickets that matched four of five numbers along with the Powerball in Saturday's drawing. Two were sold locally. One ticket was purchased at Krist Food Mart in Minocqua. Whoever holds that ticket won $50,000. A second northwoods ticket, purchased at the Antigo BP North, also chose the Power Play option raising their winning total to $200,000. Neither winner had come forward as of yesterday afternoon. The winners have 180 days to claim their prize. As for that jackpot, it grows to $650 million for Wednesday. Lottery director Cindy Polzin put that in a Wisconsin perspective noting that's enough to buy every Wisconsinite 25 bags of cheese curds while still having $3 million left over.

Lincoln County Veteran's Office Benefits from 'Nolden Vet Bug' Donation
Published on 08/22/2017 under News Veterans in Lincoln County are benefiting from a unique fundraiser run by a couple in southeastern Wisconsin. As we briefly mentioned in last week's County Board recap, the supervisors accepted a donation from Maurice and Jackie Nolden. The couple raise money through the sale of their 'Nolden Vet Bugs.' As explained to the board by Lincoln County Service Officer Rick Wolf, the Prairie du Sac couple create these decorative statues out of watering devices reclaimed from old farms. The lawn decorations measure about a foot across (2' with the legs) and are painted to replicate bugs. The one Wolf had as a display was fashioned into a lady bug. The Nolden's sell their decorations with 100% of the proceeds going to Veteran Organizations across the state. Wolf explained that the pair had sold more than 4,000 bugs raising more than $100,000 overall. Last week's donation to the local Veteran's Service Office came in at $700.
