Earlier this week, Wisconsin started vaccinating people who are 65 and older.

But Northwoods residents who have been vaccinated through a pharmacy program like Trig’s or Hometown Pharmacy are a lucky few.

When federal and state governments started enrolling pharmacies to administer the COVID-19 vaccine, Trig’s jumped on board.

Jeff Suppon, Trig’s director of pharmacy, estimates Trig’s has vaccinated about 1,000 residents in long-term care facilities over the past month.

A permanent injunction to prevent commercial pumping and transport of water from the Carlin Club property in Presque Isle to a bottling facility in Marenisco, Micigan was approved in Vilas County Court November 9. It  prevents Carlin Club Properties LLC from erecting any new structure, driveway, or other facility for pumping and transport of water, but does not prevent Carlin Club LLC interests from seeking a zoning permit, conditional use permit, change in zoning classification, or other relief from Vilas County officials.

Carlin lake property owners who filed a contempt of court motion alleging Carlin Club Properties violated a court order had smiles on their faces as they departed the Vilas County court hearing where Judge Leon Stenz agreed his order of March 17, 2017 was indeed violated.

A Northwoods health consortium has partnered with a grocery store chain in an effort to raise awareness about eating more fruits and vegetables.

Northwoods LEAN--or Linking Education, Activity and Nutrition-- has partnered with Trig's grocery stores to feature spots where displays will show people how they can incorporate more fruits and vegetable into their diets.
