Racing fans packed State Park Speedway in Rib Mountain Saturday. It was the first day of the racing season and a chance for fans to remember racing icon, Dick Trickle. People at the track observed a moment of silence for Trickle. He died Thursday in an apparent suicide at the age of 71. Race organizers said the event brought in more than 1,500 fans to watch the season's opening race and to remember Trickle's successful career."More >>

Ralph Fochs worked at the paper mill in Mosinee for 47
"I have nothing bad to say about the mill," said Fochs. "It
gave me a good living."
Fochs retired 6 years ago. Now his son and son-in-law work
at the mill.
Wausau Paper says it's found a buyer for that mill and the one in Rhinelander.
"I'm sure they
are worried," said Fochs. "But
they kind of joked about it, because they're both go getters. And if it did go
down, I would not worry about them finding something someplace, but it wouldn't
be as good as the mill."
Fochs says he hopes the sale means stability.
"I would just like to keep it going the way it is," said Fochs. "I
mean you're running 7 days a week, 24-hours a day. I just hope they're smart
enough, whoever buys it, to keep it going good."
It's a similar feeling in Rhinelander. Mayor Richard Johns, who
worked at the mill for 40 years, says the sale is a step in the right
"The city of Rhinelander
is willing to cooperate with anyone who purchases the mill," said Johns. "We
will be looking forward to working with them in the future and I'm sure things will work out down the line."
But the question on everyone's mind, what will the new buyer
do with the mills?
