New Marathon County Life Report revealed


A new Marathon County Life Report calls for a community-wide effort to get children off to a good start, early in life.

The report is coordinated by the United Way of Marathon County.

"We want to do three things. Identify those things we do well. Identify what needs work and set up long-term goals for improvement, " said Joanne Kelly of the United Way.

This two-year report shows schools, health care  facilities and natural resources are assets for the county.

Areas identified as concerns requiring attention are a challenged economy and substance abuse.
