ANTIGO - When you can't catch fish, it's easy to blame the lure. If you need something different, an Antigo company makes a lure that you might want to try. The Mepps assembly plant is located right off Highway 45.
LANGLADE COUNTY - Since March, Langlade County hasn't had a district attorney.
Its former district attorney, Ralph Uttke, went to work in Marathon County. The governor could have appointed someone for the job, but chose not to. Since then, a special prosecutor has been filling in.
But all district attorney positions statewide are up for election on November 8.
Now Portage County Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Constable plans to run for the position.
EAGLE RIVER - Butterflies and angel pins cover Julie Prochazka's baseball cap, serving as symbols of lives tragically lost -- many to suicide. It's her hat's latest addition that brings her to tears.
"He wasn't a bad man, he was a broken man," Prochazka said near Eagle River's Snipe Lake Thursday morning, thinking of her friend Scot Minard.
Prochazka learned of Minard's death Wednesday morning. Twenty-four hours prior, police shot and killed Minard after he shot at them during a traffic stop in Antigo, a high-speed chase, and an hour-long standoff in Lincoln County.
"He told me the next time I saw him I'd hear about him on the news," Prochazka said.
ANTIGO - The Raptor Education Group, Inc. (REGI) in Antigo got its start more than 25 years ago. It's a group that helps nurse injured birds back to life and returns them to the wild. But have you ever stopped to take a look at one of the people who makes it all happen?
REGI Executive Director Marge Gibson starts her day around 5:00a.m. every day to look after some of smallest and largest birds brought to REGI daily. The rehabilitation and education center opened, all from Gibson's love of birds.
