Bert's Joke of the Month
In the afternoon, I went over to the local Bass Pro Shop to get a 9mm handgun for home/personal protection.
When I was ready to pay for the pistol and some ammo, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me."
Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed.
When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card reader!!!

While Innovative Services provides many services throughout multiple areas of the state, with the common goal to provide a "possibility  for every person." In Rice Lake and Barron County, we provide employment services by working collaboratively  with job seekers that have their efforts to plan for, seek, obtain and maintain employment. We work together to specifically identify interest, skills and abilities so they can be matched to jobs that fit and meet the job seekers goals. While the job seeker is our focus, we also connect directly with businesses to learn about their hiring needs, provide training assistance as necessary, and offer other employer incentives to facilitate a successful long-term hire.
