Rhonda Huber's family knows what it's like to face significant medical expenses. Two years ago, Huber of Ellsworth received her second kidney transplant. Last month, the 51-year-old wife of Jim and mother of Cody, 17, died in a motorcycle accident southeast of the village. Her husband and son are starting to rebound from the shock of that sudden loss, her father-in-law, Eldon Huber of Ellsworth, said Friday. The former has returned to work at Danny Hager Sanitation and the latter is working at Plummer Concrete. But they need the public's help to deal with expenses.
ELMWOOD -- The welcome mat is out at Elmwood's new assisted living facility, and not only to residents. Welcome Home Assisted Living, a project by Dawn Schoeder and her former sister-in-law, Mel, is reaching out to the community. The 26-unit facility which opened this month is holding a grand opening celebration this Friday with an open house from 1 to 7 p.m. and a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m.
Since the days of Henry Ford, automobiles have been manufactured on an assembly line. With assembly line-like precision, members of the Beldenville Old Car Club make their annual car show happen.
Fire late Wednesday consumed a barn in the Town of Ellsworth. The Ellsworth Fire Department was called at 11:38 p.m. to the Rae Ann Andrea property, W5329 CTH N, Beldenville. The barn was a total loss. The cause of the blaze was unavailable Thursday morning. The roof was down before police officers arrived and they were on the scene prior to the department's arrival, when the structure was fully engulfed. There were no injuries.
A new "Community Garden" has been developed on a triangular piece of village property between the Hwy. 10-63 west hill and Old West Main Street at Ellsworth's west entrance. The project began with several members of the St.
PLUM CITY --- Life's been good to Max and Vivian Kopp. The Kopps, ages 91 and 89, respectively, are almost inseparable as residents of the Plum City Care Center. Even with dilated pupils from the eye exams the couple had there last week, they watched out for each other. When a visitor entered their room, Mrs. Kopp had already returned from her exam, but her husband hadn't come back from his.
For a different job, the construction worker happened to be in the right place at the right time. Shane Cole had been hired to finish the dance floor and restore some top beams at Furlong's Grill and Saloon in Ellsworth's west business district, he said Thursday.
Take a pinch of the old and the new, stir in the fresh and the seasoned, add some goods for both mind and body. Mix in a family's worth of interests and skills. The result is a recipe for The Roadside, a new business opened late last month by Dean and Nancy Bystrom, and their son Chris, in the building most recently housing Creative Baskets and Gifts along Hwy. 10-63 west of Ellsworth. Like any valued recipe, their venture isn't comprised of all equal parts.
Don't expect a lot of changes at Danny Dunn's now that the East Ellsworth tavern has switched management. The new owner is already a familiar face behind the bar. And Kristia Melstrom doesn't plan to make the establishment much different. "I'll probably update the interior eventually," Melstrom said Wednesday. Otherwise, she's retaining the name, the offerings to customers and the Green Bay Packers theme, she said. The premises with the green-and-gold exterior will still host drink specials on Packer football game days later this year.
The word's getting around about the stunts Rico Roman features in his company's productions. They're so entertaining that, not only has Roman's Arse Marks produced a new DVD containing a sampling, but he and his crew have been invited to take their show on the road. Late this month, they'll leave for the "Warped Tour" to promote the approximately 50-minute production, complete with bonus section, then hope to appear on a TV show called "The Pro Idiot Tour." The former is a concert tour that's been played for "years and years" around the U.S., Roman said Tuesday.
