UPDATE: ADOPTED!! Adoptable Pet of the Week - Meet Merlot

Merlot and her brothers are looking for their forever homes.


This little beauty is Merlot! She is the cutest girl with the sweetest personality! She is here at the shelter waiting for her forever home along with 4 of her brothers! We are told they are Anatolian Shepherd mix! They are 3 months old and ready for families that are ready for all of the work that comes with a new energetic puppy! They love to play with with their toys and wrestle then settle down for a nice long nap! There is a possibility that they are going to be fairly decent size dogs when they grow up so they will need families that have the room for a growing puppy! Their adoption fees are $210 each and that covers their spay or neuter, first shots for a year and their microchip! Stop in and meet them soon!

Meet Merlot and her brothers at the Lincoln County Humane Society at 310 N Memorial Dr, Merrill, 715-536-3459. Check out the adoptable pets here https://www.furrypets.com/2012/pets-detail1.php

Nikki "Nikilicious" Montgomery

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
