Local Man Donates Land to Technical CollegeSubmitted: 08/18/2014
Story By Anthony Bruno


RHINELANDER - Nicolet College just got a very generous donation.

Dr. Lee Swank of Rhinelander donated five-acres of land to the Nicolet College Foundation. School leaders say the donation will have a big impact on students wanting to get a college education.

"We are going to be able to sell this property, and have a countless number of scholarships come out of it to help people who probably wouldn't otherwise be able to afford a college education," said Heather Schallock, executive director of the Nicolet College Foundation.

So far, the foundation has awarded more than $350,000 in scholarships for the 2014-2015 school year. All of those scholarships are made possible through donations to the foundation. Leaders say not all donations are in the form of money, and that any type donation is greatly appreciated.

"What we are looking for in the majority of our contributions and donations that we accept is a way to be able to take that gift and have an immediate impact on our students and their education," said Schallock.

The land Dr. Swank donated is located in Iron County, Michigan right on Smokey Lake. All the proceeds from the sale of the land will be given out as scholarships to people looking to attend Nicolet Area Technical College.

The college has the land up for sale. For more information, contact Heather Schallock at the Nicolet Foundation Office by calling 715-365-4518.

DNR reminds hunters to check boundaries Submitted: 10/30/2014

WISCONSIN - Wisconsin wildlife leaders want to remind deer hunters to learn the boundaries of new management units by reviewing county lines.

The DNR reduced the number of traditional management units this year from 134 to 72 units based on county boundaries in an effort to simplify the hunt.

The agency says hunters need to have a good idea where county lines are so they know where units begin and end.

The new units don't follow roads or rivers like they did in the past.

WAUSAU - Candidates for the 7th Congressional District debated over topics like mining, jobs, Ebola, healthcare, and other issues in Wausau Wednesday night.

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) and Kelly Westlund (D-Ashland) are running for the 7th Congressional District seat. The district covers part of 20 counties across northern Wisconsin.

The area lags behind the rest of the state economically. That was one of the reasons mining was a topic of focus. The Gogebic Taconite project would involve a four mile open pit mine in Iron and Ashland County. The project could mean more than 600 jobs with other secondary jobs connected to the mine.
