Build Complete; 'Snowmy Kromer' Returns to Minocqua
Published on 02/21/2019 under News He was a few days late, but a larger than life snowman has returned to the Northwoods. That, of course, is 'Snowmy Kromer,' the 30 foot tall snowman located in Minocqua. Over the past three days, a number of volunteers have pitched in at the Minocqua Chamber to complete the annual project. The build comes a week later than originally planned due to the snow. The excavation teams that typically assist were busy last week with their own snow removal jobs around the community. So the build started Monday instead, and by yesterday they were putting the final touches the snowman including the traffic cone nose and, of course, his custom made Stormy Kromer cap. The snowman will stick around as weather allows. In recent years he has become a tourist attraction with thousands of selfies taken. The Minocqua Chamber is encouraging people to share their Snowmy Kromer photos on social media with the hashtag #minocquaarea.

Price County Ambulances Latest to be Outfitted with CPR Equipment
Published on 02/21/2019 under News Price County first responders will be freed up to offer additional care during the transport of cardiac patients thanks to a new purchase. The Central Price County Ambulance Service, based out Phillips, announced that they have recently outfitted their two ambulances with LUCAS CPR equipment. This technology sits over a patient in transport and provides chest compressions, enabling first responders to more effectively perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR. Nurse practitioner Rick Anderson of Marshfield Clinic Health System Phillips and Park Falls centers says "CPR is difficult and tiring for even the best trained and experienced professionals. This device eases the burden on responders and enhances patient outcomes." Flambeau Hospital Chief Administrative Officer Jim Braun was "thrilled" with the latest addition. He said, "No matter where you live, if you are on an ambulance coming to Flambeau Hospital, you will have access to this latest life-saving technology." The purchase was made possible with a $30,000, two year investment from Flambeau Hospital and Marshfield Clinic. This type of equipment is growing in popularity. Several other ambulance services here in the Northwoods have been outfitted with the LUCAS equipment in recent years.

State Corrections Secretary Nominee Discusses Lincoln Hills
Published on 02/21/2019 under News During his confirmation hearings in Madison, the potential State Corrections Secretary maintained the goal of closing the Lincoln Hills youth correctional facility, but at a realistic pace. Gov. Tony Evers Corrections Secretary-nominee Kevin Carr testified before senators yesterday. In addition to criminal justice reform and the state's adult prisons, Carr also addressed the youth corrections facility in Irma. Last year, the state legislature passed Act 185, which would see the youth inmates moved out of Lincoln Hills and Copper lake by 2021. The inmates would be moved to smaller county run detention centers which don't currently exist. According to an AP report, Carr called the closing the facility "complex," and said they are committed to closing the facility "as soon as possible." He added, "we must also be realistic about the time it takes to design and build these specialty facilities." Several plans to extend the deadline are being considered, while other lawmakers are adamant the state stick to the schedule.
