Center Supervisor Greg Renfro says the $2,000 grant will enable them to purchase equipment for the "SportFit" program...
"....the program is set up so student athletes can come into our facility. We design a program for whatever their sport is...lets say baseball...we design a program that is designed to help that individual perform optimally as a baseball player..."
Monday is the deadline to pick a plan on the federal health exchange, if you want your coverage to start January 1st. Most insurance companies are extending the deadline to pay for that coverage…until January 10th.

Myra Kubesh is a certified application assistant at Langlade Hospital. She says many people have questions about whether they qualify for a subsidy...and what kinds of coverage different plans offer.
