Andy Merry will return to a familiar seat when the Unified School District of Antigo board of education holds its reorganizational meeting on Tuesday.

The reorganizational business will take place at the opening of the regular April session. It will begin at 7 p.m. in the media tech room at the high school.

Also re-elected to new three-term terms were Mike Boldig, who currently serves as board president, and Jeanne Long.

Reorganizational matters will also include election of officers. In addition to Boldig, the current slate includes Scott Jensema, vice-president; Jessica Meade, clerk; and Patrick McKenna, treasurer.

Antigo's Jim Martinsen earns honors at Wausau visual arts exhibition
space
Antigo photographer Jim Martinsen earned first place at the Wausau Visual Arts “Cattails and Flowers” show currently hanging in the “Reaching New Heights Gallery” inside Marshfield Clinic, 3501 Cranberry Blvd, Weston.

His first place photograph, “Just Before the Snow,” is an image of a teasel viewed through a rain-spattered window.

Katy Ralph, administrator of the Nicolet College Art Gallery judged the show.

“The composition is great,” Ralph said. “It is mysterious and slightly quirky. It is both soft and prickly. I love how it feels both still and in motion. Everything works together wonderfully.”

Each entry was judged on emotional appeal, mastery of technique, innovative use of materials, composition and overall presentation. The show will remain hanging until June 2.

Martinsen is an Antigo Visual Arts gallery administrator.

With each new machine, the brand gained popularity and the business grew to the 65,000 square foot shop that develops trash compactors, apartment compactors, self-contained compactors, front compactors and vertical balers.

“Utilizing cutting-edge technology and the skills of its employees, we’ve been able to stay on top of the market,” Angela Jacobson for Ace Equipment, said. “Continuous improvement and new designs have been attracting more customers as well as the reliable service that we have and continue to offer with each machine sold.”

The northwoods, with a host of old barns, ramshackle homesteads and dilapidated sheds tucked along back roads, may become a picker’s paradise.

Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and Antique Archeology will film episodes of their hit series “American Pickers” throughout Wisconsin in May, and Antigo is on the list.

“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique picking on History. The show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia. Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way.

According to the show’s producers, “Pickers” is looking for leads and would love to explore what the area has to offer. They are on the hunt for interesting characters with unique items.
