Antigo-based drones, jetliners share

Jumbo jetliners recently shared their runways with the latest—and smallest—in flying technology at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, Jamaica.

And an Antigo-based company played a key role.

Cameron Berg and Alan Horzewski of Unmanned Systems Inc., located at the Langlade County Airport, recently traveled to Kingston on a mission using the drone—technically known as UAS, or unmanned aerial system—and its LiDAR laser surveying system.

Only a handful of people have been able to fly a commercial drone at an international airport, Berg, pilot and director of media for Unmanned Systems Inc., explained. It was a rare opportunity.

The focus on the store will be to take donations of appliances, cabinets, countertops, building materials, flooring, furniture, lawn and gardening, tools, windows, lighting, kitchen and bathroom items and recycle them for new projects, generally at a fraction of the cost.

We are looking for donations from anyone, board member Tara Guelzow said. We have a list of items that will be posted at the store and on our Facebook page, but the easiest thing to do is call us at 715-627-7307 and ask.

space
There are hundreds and hundreds of vehicles lined up at the Langlade County Fairgrounds today and Saturday for the annual spring Loan Rally, an event involving local dealers and sponsored by the CoVantage Credit Union.

With CoVantage representatives buzzing the grounds and manning offices in the multi-purpose building, the rally has attracted displays from Parsons of Antigo, Quinlan’s Equipment, Brickner’s of Antigo and Langlade Ford.

The dealership staff members agree early today that the weather was far better this year than in the past.

A number of the veterans of the vehicle and financial industries remember being quite chilly and even wet at the spring show, but 2018 is proving to be far kinder. The high reading at noon today in Antigo was 64, and it will rise during the afternoon hours.

Parsons, Brickner’s and Langlade Ford brought an assortment of automobiles, trucks and SUVs, Brickners also had campers and Quinlan’s had lawn equipment and a variety of GMC vehicles on the lot.

The big show continues today until 7 p.m., and will fire up again on Saturday at 9 a.m., shutting down at 2 p.m.
