RHINELANDER - A lot of people in the Northwoods will put out decorations for Halloween. But one Rhinelander woman and her daughter have gone above and beyond. They've grown their display for the past 10 years to extend between their houses and covering more than 100 yards.
"We had four boys and we wanted a girl and she was born on Halloween, so my husband said, 'Look, we finally got our witch!'" said Linda Klaver.
PHILLIPS - A 47-year-old Price County man was sentenced to 25 years in prison for murdering his wife. The murder happened just two weeks after William Rambo was charged with domestic abuse.
He could get released on extended supervision after serving his prison sentence. A judge will decide that after he serves that time.
It started August 22, 2013 in Park Falls. William Rambo and his wife Dawn had been arguing at their home at 284 2nd Street North. According to the criminal complaint, Dawn made William leave the house to settle down. He said they got into an altercation when he got back.
MINNEAPOLIS - A Twin Cities advertising agency has created a TV and radio ad that it hopes will make a strong point about why Native Americans and others oppose the Washington Redskins' name and logo.
Opponents of the name believe it's a racial slur that mocks Native American culture. Red Circle agency owner Chad Germann is a member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwa. The ad his agency created features a diverse group of people individually speaking a slur about their ethnicity. The racial slurs are bleeped out of the ad, until the face of an American Indian appears and speaks the Redskins name.
