Journal launches its annual holiday recipe section, invitation issued|
Bright Futures run and walk held on Saturday
|On the last day of summer, and a warm and sunny one at that, the Antigo Daily Journal is launching its annual — and very popular — holiday recipes campaign.|
Recipies will be collected, checked and then published in the newspaper on Nov. 8.
After checking to determine the hottest kitchen appliance of the year, the Journal selected a six-quart NuWave Brio Digital Air Fryer as a participant prize. All of those sending recipes are eligible for a drawing for the fryer.
It is a unit that combines hot air with high-speed air circulation, and in the process perfectly cooks all of your favorite fried foods quickly and efficiently.
The editor of the section is asking those interested in participating to enter one, two or three favorite holiday recipes. The rules state that the recipes should be printed or typed on a sheet of paper that also includes name, complete address, phone number and the name of the recipe category.
The recipes will be received at the newspaper office, 612 Superior St., Antigo, WI 54409 until 5 p.m. on Oct. 10 or by e-mail at adj@dwave. net.

Daily Journal starts 113th year today
|The Antigo school district took a major step forward in getting unstuck from its focus on facilities Monday.|
The districts board of education hosted a consolidation discussion, an opportunity for the public to learn about and discuss the downsizing of district facilities. The event drew about three dozen interested parents and other residents who gathered to exchange ideas and viewpoints seated at the round tables at the high school.
We have more common ground than ground that separates us, Dr. Colleen Timm, district administrator, said during the discussion. Lets work together to help the school get unstuck.
Timm commended those who took the time to attend, tour the high school, and share their thoughts.
She stressed that the community must move forward from time and energy-consuming facilities issues, noting that the district has considered a wide range of options and hasnt been able to determine that just right solution.
Instead, the focus should be on education.
The buildings have to support that, they should not be a distraction, she said.
In March, following a series of failed elementary ref

The number at the top of the front page quietly changed to Vol. 113, No. 1 today.
That means the newspaper that services Langlade County and surrounding counties has been published 112 complete years, and is starting on its 113th.
The newspaper was started by two Antigo brothers, who had dabbled in the printing and newspaper business in Columbus, Wisconsin before the turn of the century. They returned home and bought a weekly publication, the Antigo Journal, which has become one of the communitys most durable single-family businesses.
The brothers, with the assistance of family members, started purchasing weekly newspapers printed here and on Sept. 18, 1905 launched the daily publication.
It was an aggressive act. Antigo was a fairly small community and printing six days a week was a big undertaking.
There have been few leadership changes in the newspaper.
Fred Berner and his brother, Henry, are both deceased. The business shifted to the sons of Henry Berner, Artemas and Henry, who have also passed. It was then operated by Marie Berner, the widow of Artemas until her death six years ago. Then Fred Berner, the son of Marie and Ar
