Head Start showcases new offices
space
Antigo Head Start Center hosted an open house Thursday evening to showcase its new facility located at 524 Edison Street.

The event featured tours of the facility guided by Head Start staff, along with snacks, beverages, and door prizes.

Center Director Karen Kieper said that the move to the new building not only provides families with a more conveniently accessible downtown location, but also features a definite upgrade in available space and amenities, for children and staff alike.

The Center was previously located on the far north end of Clermont Street.

Antigo Head Start is a state of Wisconsin licensed child care center that serves up to 72 children between the ages of three and five. The organization has been providing quality child development programming in the Antigo area for more than 35 years.

Head Start is a federally funded school readiness program for low income children and families. The Antigo Head Start Center is operated by Family and Child Learning Centers of Northeast Wisconsin, Inc., a single purpose non-profit agency that administers programs in nine northeastern Wisconsin counties.

Bell ringers needed to keep donations flowing
space
With two weeks to go until Christmas, the soft sounds of Salvation Army bells need to be replaced by gongs if the organization is able to meet its goals for the 2019 season.

Volunteer organizer Cavan Kelly said bell-ringers--key to the program's success--are desperately needed at locations throughout the community between now and Christmas Eve, just 12 days away.

“With less than 2 weeks to go we have raised $59,000, which is half of last year's goal,” Kelly said. ‘This year's goal is $120,000 so we have some work to do.”

There are a number of reasons for the shortfall, including the late Thanksgiving, which tripped up the scheduling for many bell ringers who traditionally made signing up for a shift a post-turkey feasting tradition.

Kelly said the empty sites are a real problem. A forlorn red kettle at a store entrance, without a attendant, brings in little if any donations. In comparison, one or two bell ringers usually bring in $50 to $100 per hour.

That adds up, he stressed. Today, for example, only 10 of 25 two-hour shifts are filled. Those 25 unfilled shifts mean 50 hours of potential donations--up to $5,000 worth--ar

UW-Extension staff celebrates move to offices at Health Service Center
space
The University of Wisconsin Langlade County Extension Office officially moved into new office space on Tuesday.

The seven staff members, along with area extension director Art Luersch and a handful of friends and supporters, celebrated the move during the lunch hour. The new office is located in the Langlade County Health Services Center at 1225 Langlade Road.

Folks seeking the new office should note that it cannot be accessed through the main doors and parking lot on Langlade Road. To locate the office, take Flight Road east, and access the parking lot to the north behind the building, then follow the sidewalk on the south side of the building and enter door #7.

The UW-Extension was previously housed in the County Resource Center on Clermont Street. The move opens up possible space for new county administrative offices there.

Luersch, who serves as the extension director for Langlade, Lincoln, Price, and Taylor counties, says the recent bout of winter weather has thrown some kinks into the moving process, but the new space is now shaping up nicely.

“The process has been difficult with the weather, and getting settled, but thanks to all th

Fierce blast of Arctic air sweeps into Antigo
space
The door slammed shut on the northwoods rather balmy conditions overnight.

Early December brought comfortable temperatureswith highs in the 30s over the weekend and plentiful snow, but cold air invaded from the Arctic overnight and sent the thermometer plunging.

That cold air has hampered road crews cleaning up the mess from Monday's three or so inches of snowfall, with slick streets and highways expected to remain the norm until warmer weather returns.

According to the National Weather Service, a wind chill advisory will be in effect from 9 p.m. tonight through noon Wednesday. Wind chills of 20 to 30 degrees below zero can be expected, and that can cause frostbite on exposed skin within 20 to 30 minutes.

“Those planning outdoor activities should dress in multiple layers, wear a hat and cover all exposed skin,” the weather service urged.

Snow may develop late Wednesday night and continue into Thursday, with two to four inches expected. More snow is also possible late Friday night into Saturday.

At least the sun is shining today.
