Snowmobile Clubs Preparing Trails, Remind Riders to Stay Off
Published on 12/09/2019 under News While the early snow cover may have riders eager to hit the trails, local clubs are reminding snowmobilers to stay off at this time. We heard from a number of local clubs over the past several days. Each passed along similar messages that riders need to wait until the trails to officially open for the season. This is due to a number of reasons including ice safety, slushy areas, and a soft base, as well as the ongoing muzzle loader deer hunting season. The clubs and their members aren't just playing the waiting game, many spent the weekend out preparing the trails. This includes packing down the snow so the slush and water underneath can freeze, and removing debris and low hanging branches. Despite the wait, the trails are well-ahead of last season. Last year most trails were without snow through mid-December, and Oneida and Vilas County trails opened December 29.

Merrill's Bridges Virtual Academy Earns High Marks
Published on 12/09/2019 under News An online school in Merrill earned top marks in their recent rankings. In addition to the traditional classroom, the Merrill School District offers Bridges Virtual Academy (BVA). It's one of 40 virtual charter schools in the state, 18 of which serve students in grades K-12.  In the school report cards released by the state last month, not only did Bridges earn an 'exceeds expectations' grade; it also had the highest score in the state among virtual charter schools. This is the third consecutive year, the school earned the achievement.   John Hagemeister is the director at BVA. He says, "The deep relationships that we have developed with our students and their families have allowed for this success and allowed us to demonstrate that quality education can be very successful in the virtual setting." The Merrill School District established Bridges Virtual Academy in 2012.

Lincoln County Man Targeted with Scam Starting with Text Message
Published on 12/09/2019 under News A Lincoln County man was victimized with a twist on recent scams that also included a text message. According to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Report, the man, rather than a phone call, first received a text from the scammer. The text asked about a "financial transaction labeled as suspicious." The man responded to the scammer that he didn't make the purchase. The Sheriff's Office says after responding, the man immediately received a phone call telling him the incident was being investigated as fraud and requested his banking information. The man complied and shortly thereafter, nearly $500 was withdrawn from the man's account at an ATM located in New Jersey. Deputies continue to investigate.

Boy's Swimming Victorious Over Antigo
Published on 12/06/2019 under Sports The Hatchet swim team won convincingly last night as they went on the road to Antigo. Tomahawk was dominant from the jump, winning 99-40. The Hatchets handled Antigo with relative ease, despite swimming in a pool that is a bit unconventionally longer than most. The Hatchets placed first in every event, with the exception of the 400 meter freestyle, which was won by Brett Farmer, a senior who is a three-time backstroke/butterfly state qualifier. All three of the Tomahawk relay teams claimed the top spots, including the medley relay team, who came from behind to beat Antigo by .83 seconds. Tomahawks is back in the pool on Saturday afternoon at the Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School Invitational - a new meet made up of eight teams from Divisions One and Two from all across Wisconsin. The meet will begin at 12:30 PM.
