On the Job is a blog by Business Editor Nathan Vine that looks at local business news in Portage County. You can view the blog by going to www.wisinfo.biz/blogs/category/stevens-point/on-the-job.

The following are excerpts from the blog:

Bancroft State Bank now is offering customers the opportunity to take care of their postal needs in one stop.

Bank staff members at the main branch, at 5496 County Road W, on Friday held a ceremony with representatives from the U.S. Postal Service to mark the occasion. Customers can now buy stamps, pick up priority flat rate boxes or envelopes and leave them for delivery.

William Galbraith is manager of post office operations for 105 offices in the state including Bancroft, which is just across the street from the bank at 5506 County Road W.

Galbraith said because of reduced hours at post offices, communities are adding other locations for postal services, including libraries, convenience and grocery stores.

Bancroft State Bank has been locally owned since it opened in 1912. Today, there are branches in Bancroft, Hancock, Kellner, Plainfield and Saratoga.

Medical College of Wisconsin settles on Wausau campus

The location of a Medical College of Wisconsin campus planned for Wausau has been changed to Aspirus Wausau Hospital and Northcentral Technical College.

Last fall, the college announced it had selected Wausau over Stevens Point and Marshfield. AFter that decision, business and community leaders in Wausau asked the school to consider locating at the former Wausau Liberty Mutual Insurance headquarters, but college administrators decided against the idea.

Under the new plan, which has been approved by the college's trustees, Aspirus will house medical education classrooms and administrative offices and Northcentral will host anatomy and other spaces. The school has not yet determined when the Wausau campus will open.

The Medical College of Wisconsin is based in Milwaukee and educates and trains medical students in family, primary and emergency care.
