RHINELANDER - Northwoods students participated in a Financial version of March Madness.
Three high schools came together to compete In the Finance and Investment Challenge Bowl today at Nicolet College.
This was the 5th annual Rhinelander Northwoods Regional Tournament.
The goal of the competition was to increase financial literacy around the state.
"This is my first quiz bowl so it was really nerve racking going in.I didn't know what to expect, but then I got in there and it was pretty chill and relaxing, then it was just really fun [and the] the adrenaline was rushing," said Rhinelander High School senior Miranda Koth.
Rhinelander, Three Lakes and Bowler High School participated in today's event.
Six teams from those three schools entered the competition.
WAUSAU - For years, we didn't know what happened to Stephanie Low. She disappeared in 2010. It wasn't until 2014 that Kristopher Torgerson led police to her body in Forest County.
As of Tuesday, we still don't know exactly what happened to Low--at least according to scientists, we don't know how she died.
The forensic pathologist who did her autopsy testified in Marathon County Court Low's death was "homicide by unspecified means."
Several witnesses testified last week that Torgerson told them he stabbed and strangled Low, but the autopsy doesn't show that.
Dr. Michael Stier testified Low's body was "moderately decomposed." She was clothed and she had an ID and a key on her. Stier testified Low had a cut likely caused by a blade on the inside of her wrist.
MADISON - Former Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold launched a new nonprofit political advocacy group Wednesday focused on voters' rights, campaign finance reform, protecting the independence of the U.S. Supreme Court and abolishing the Electoral College.
Feingold told The Associated Press that the goal of his group, called LegitAction, is to connect local activists with the larger movement and not be distracted by more trivial, daily controversies surrounding President Donald Trump.
