    Bryan Hellios|Mar 2, 2019

    IRONWOOD — Aspirus Hospital in Ironwood is using remote technology to offer patients expanded access to physicians. David Sim, manager of marketing and public relations for Aspirus, said it’s not always easy for the hospital to find enough doctors to work in the area. “It’s hard for rural communities to compete with such high demand,” he said. “Everybody wants more providers.” Telehealth addresses this problem by allowing doctors to live anywhere in the world, but work where they are most needed. During a demonstration, a...

  • Aili's game-winner gives Bessemer first district title since 2004

    Jason Juno|Mar 2, 2019

    By JASON JUNO [email protected] EWEN - A big reason why Bessemer's drought of district tournaments dates back to 2004 is because of Ewen-Trout Creek. It was no different for this group of Bessemer seniors. "Freshman year we lost to Ewen. Sophomore year we lost to Ewen. Junior year we lost to Ewen," senior Cade Mazzon said. "This year, we had to beat them." Just because they came in with an under-.500 record didn't mean E-TC was any less formidable than normal. So Bessemer fought to lift that district trophy Friday night. First, Mazzon...

    Mar 2, 2019

    MELLEN, Wis. — Mercer fought back from a 20-point deficit to take the lead, but they couldn’t finish it as Mellen won the WIAA Division 5 regional semifinal 68-60 Friday night. Mellen led 42-22, but Mercer went on a 27-6 run to take a 49-48 lead. “We made it interesting,” Mercer coach Adam Miller said. “I told the boys, if you’re going to go down, you better go down swinging.” Mellen played four corners when it took that 20-point lead. Mercer forced them out of it. They had multiple opportunities to add to their one-point lead...
