ArtStart kicks off a new summer exhibit today in Rhinelander. It’s the first show to go up in the gallery after a series of renovations.
The work on display in the "Art of Hunting and Fishing" ranges from woodcuts and drawings of duck hunters, to a collection of antique decoys and a birchbark canoe. ArtStart Board President Ken Juon says he hopes the outdoorsy topic will appeal even to those who might not typically find themselves in a gallery.
A new assisted living center has opened in Rhinelander. The Rennes Health and Rehab Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony today.
A few dozen staff members, community leaders and patients gathered at the new nursing facility to celebrate its opening. But the Rennes Health and Rehab Center has actually been taking care of patients since March 1st. That’s when the group closed its location in Phelps and moved 33 patients to the new Rhinelander facility.
A fund drive is underway to repair and preserve the train at Pioneer Park in Rhinelander. The Logging Museum complex includes the historic train and boxcars as a reminder of the Northwoods Logging era.
Mayor Dick Johns and others are hoping citizens step forward to contribute to the restoration of the train and to build a roof over the top to help preserve the attraction.
Mayor Johns says the wooden cars and the train need immediate attention.
A committee of city leaders in Rhinelander has selected a company to outline an economic development initiative for downtown. The plan from Vierbicher Associates will also look into giving Brown Street a bit of a facelift, by conducting a streetscape study.
Rhinelander City Administrator Blaine Oborn says doing a streetscape…is kind of like landscaping, for a downtown sidewalk.
