Antigo will bid farewell to the Christmas season with the annual community tree burn on Monday night.

The event will cap a quiet weekend across the northwoods, with balmy weather keeping snowmobile trails and Kettlebowl ski hill closed and many settling in for their long winter naps.

But Sunday brings the big Green Bay Packers-Atlanta Falcons NFC Championship game. Airtime is 2:05 p.m. on FOX.

A look at activities, taken from the newspaper’s advertising columns, follows:

TREE BURN

Antigo will mark the unofficial end of the holiday season Monday, when a vast pyre of trees will go up in flames at the community Christmas tree burn in the parking lot south of the high school.

The bonfire will be lit at 5 p.m. at the huge pile of trees, which has been growing daily as city crews collect evergreens curbside from across the community. Optimists will provide free hot dogs and hot chocolate and there are large piles of snow around the stack of trees that will offer great sliding for families bringing sleds.

Everyone in the community is invited to bring a donation for the food pantry

Bail was set at $2,000 cash this week for an Antigo woman who arranged her own drug deal with a Langlade County sheriff’s deputy.

Meth was the drug of choice and a gram and a half of the substance was seized when Bridget C. O’Brien, 20, of 518 Ackley St. learned her intended buyer was not the friend she assumed, but rather a deputy by the same name.

Charges filed by District Attorney Elizabeth Constable include conspiracy to commit the delivery of methamphetamine and possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine. Both are felony counts, each carrying a maximum 12 1/2 year prison term if convicted.

Court documents detail the allegations which resulted in O’Brien’s Jan. 16 arrest.

According to a criminal complaint, O’Brien had the deputy’s contact information due to past work with the agency. She initially contacted the officer over a social media site and then requested he text her. He did and upon asked his identity, he gave his surname. O’Brien later explained the given name was also the name of a friend.

During their subsequent conversation, O’Brien questioned if he knew anyone looking, and on th
