100TH BIRTHDAY—Family members of Barbara Johnston along with many friends and members of the Harmony United Methodist Church celebrated her 100th birthday Sunday, March 1 at the Church Hall. Hors d’oeuvres, cake and ice cream were served to the guests. Ralph said his mother was still running four miles a day at age 95. Pictured standing from left are sons, Ken, Don and Ralph Johnston. The centenarian is pictured seated in the front. The spry 100 year old said she is looking forward to her next birthday. A daughter, Maryann Danielson of Florida was unable to attend the celebration.

Although he pointed out he is not an appellate court attorney, Spangenberg agreed to take on the case as part of his regular duties for the city, without addition...

Prisoner Board Cost Oconto County $304,000 In 2014

Despite discovery that soils on the project site will require extra fill and deep pile foundations, construction plans for the new Oconto County Law Enforcement Center (including a new 100-bed jail) are proceeding almost exactly on schedule. The more costly foundations will delay completion of the 94,000 square foot building by about a month and add $250,000 to $500,000 to the $30 million project.

Stewart, who purchased 9.5 acres on the opposite side of the alley from his property, asked the city to vacate the alley so his two properties could be joined together. When he purchased...
