A Benefit for Jesse and Alex Matushak (Minocqua)
On November 3rd the Hazlehurst home of Jesse Matushak and his 6 year old son Alex was destroyed in a fire. Without insurance, this means the total loss of everything they owned. The community has already sprung to action, giving the family crucial assistance in this challenging time such as clothing and a temporary place to live, but in order to help put the pieces back together friends of the Matushak family have organized a benefit concert and spaghetti feed. "When things like this happen the local community really comes together," says Carrie Spencer, friend of the family and event organizer, "It really makes you appreciate living up north, where we look after one another." Island City Lanes in Minocqua will host the benefit, which begins at 4pm with a spaghetti dinner. A $10 suggested donation for adults and a $5 suggested donation for children is greatly appreciated. The event continues with fundraising baskets, for which drawings are at 8pm (need not be present to win), and live music by Cougar Bait and other local musicians starting at 9pm. The party will go all night, with drink specials throughout the event. Monetary donations are being collected at all US Banks and can be made to the Jesse Matushak Fund. "We want the event to be fun," says CJ Spencer, bassist of Cougar Bait, "We all want to help, Jesse is a great guy, but just because it's a serious situation doesn't mean it can't be a really fun night." For more updates, to donate, or to find out how else you can help, visit the official Facebook page of the event at: tinyurl.com/matushak Cougar bait is a local rock cover band from Rhinelander, Wisconsin.

Two Holiday Blood Drives Planned (Eagle River - Phelps)
Two blood drives are being held back-to-back this week, in Eagle River and Phelps. Donations of all blood types are needed. Donations from people with O-, A-, B-, and O+ blood are especially needed.
Blood donations are projected to decrease substantially in the last two weeks of December. These two blood drives will bolster the blood supply before the holidays, lessening the impact of the donation decline. At each blood drive, all donors can enter to win a homemade, fresh evergreen wreath.
On Wednesday December 18, a blood drive is being planned in Eagle River from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The drive is being hosted by the VFW, and will be held at their location at 418 Pine Street. For a donation appointment, call Elaine at 479-5339 or visit www.save3lives.org.
On Thursday December 19, a blood drive will be held in Phelps from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The drive will take place at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, at 4494 Town Hall Road in Phelps. For a donation appointment, call Lola at (920) 227-5561 or visit www.save3lives.org.
“I encourage you to pause the hustle and bustle of the season, and take a break to give blood,” said Jan Hadsell of the Community Blood Center. “Each donation can help a hospital patient, and after giving blood you may find that your perspective has changed for the better. Giving blood seems to encourage people to remember what they can be thankful for at this time of year.”
Advance donation appointments are highly recommended for both blood drives. Walk-in donors are welcome, but scheduling an appointment helps ensure a fast and convenient process.
Blood donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, and bring a photo ID. Donors are encouraged to eat a regular meal and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating.
