Divine Savior gets new pastor

Wolf B. Parsons, a 2018 graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, will be ordained and installed as the new pastor at Divine Savior Lutheran Church in Shawano at 3 p.m. Sunday during a special worship service.

Parsons, prior to preparing for the preaching ministry, which involved five years of academic studies and one year of vicaring, had graduated from Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. He then taught high school math in Dupree, South Dakota, for two years before returning to school as a full-time student at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota, for two years of pre-ministerial training.

Two people are facing multiple felony charges after allegedly coming to Shawano County to sell a variety of drugs, including meth, cocaine and synthetic marijuana.

ThedaCare will abide by city’s decision, spokesman says

ThedaCare will apparently go along with whatever the city decides when it comes to distributing proceeds from the sale of the former Shawano Medical Center property, according to a ThedaCare spokesman involved in negotiations with the city.

The Shawano Plan Commission on Thursday rejected a previously negotiated deal with ThedaCare on the split of proceeds from the sale of property, opting instead to divvy up the money based solely on the percentage of property owned by the city and owned by ThedaCare.

Tadych Investment Partners, LLC, of Green Bay, is proposing eight two-story luxury apartment buildings consisting of eight units each, for a total of 64 luxury apartment homes on the former hospital property adjacent to Smalley Park.

Tadych would pay $500,000 for the roughly 6.7-acre property.

The city owns 43 percent of the property, while ThedaCare owns 57 percent.

Neighbors opposed to Tadych plan


Leader photo by Tim Ryan Neighbor Jerry Strickland voices his opposition Thursday before the Shawano Plan Commission at City Hall to a housing development project at the former Shawano Medical Center property.

Opposition to the revamped housing project development at the former Shawano Medical Center property was still on display Thursday at a public hearing before the Shawano Plan Commission, but in noticeably fewer numbers than previously seen.

Tadych Investment Partners, LLC, of Green Bay, had originally proposed a four-story, 39-unit luxury apartment building and 25 single-family condominiums on the property.

They later determined the plan was not economically viable.

Tadych subsequently scrapped its original plan and is now proposing eight two-story luxury apartment buildings consisting of eight units each, for a total of 64 luxury apartment homes.

Each unit would be a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment and feature sophisticated finishes, a balcony or terrace with a view of the Wolf River and have its own private entry and private two-stall garage.

Panel supports Reinhart relocation

The Shawano Plan Commission Thursday approved a proposal from Reinhart Foodservice to relocate its existing distribution center to a new site on the southern edge of Shawano.

The plan would require the city to annex about 69 acres south of County Road B in the town of Waukechon, stretching from the county road to state Highway 29.

It would also require the expansion of Shawano’s Tax Incremental Finance District 7, which was created to accommodate the Belmark Inc. project.

A development agreement has yet to be crafted, but one option being discussed would provide Reinhart with about $3.8 million in property tax rebates over the next 10 to 12 years, according to City Administrator Brian Knapp.

The proposal goes to the Shawano Common Council on July 11.
