Rail Trail Ready for a Face Lift


Rail Trail Ready For Facelift  2/22/17

 

  The Price-Taylor County Pine Line Commission recently asked Russ Aszmann , the Taylor County Forestry and Recreation Director to apply for a grant with funding to be used for resurfacing the former railroad bed.       The grant has been approved, but local funding is also required.  The commission is hoping to raise $25,000 in addition to the $100,000 in grant funds which should be adequate to add a new surface to approximately 6 miles of the rail trail, or 1/3 of the distance to the Price County Line.  Individuals or civic organizations who wish to contribute to the surfacing project can contact the Forestry Department at the Taylor County Courthouse. 

  Commission members include:  Marv Kuenne, Patty Krug, Karla Klapatauskas, Chuck Zenner and Russ Aszmann.  If adequate funding is secured, work on the project will begin this spring.

(Information from: Wausau Daily Herald Media, http://www.wausaudailyherald.com)

 

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) — A north-central Wisconsin woman has pleaded no contest in a crash that killed a bicyclist in 2015.

  Fifty-five-year-old Lorie Ann Miller of Rib Lake was found guilty of homicide by negligent driving after entering her plea Monday. Miller was accused of hitting and killing a bicyclist while texting and driving near Marshfield.

  As part of the plea agreement, Miller likely will serve nine months in jail and nine years on probation. Sentencing is set for May 16.

  USA Today Network-Wisconsin reports Marathon County Assistant District Attorney Kyle Mayo said during the plea hearing that the family of the victim, 52-year-old Donna David of Marshfield, does not agree with the plea deal.

  David taught chemistry at Northcentral Technical College and was a researcher with the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation.
