That will be tonight on Friday Night Blitz at the end of Newswatch 12 at 10.
We'll bring you all this and more tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.
RHINELANDER - A well known sex offender in this area will get out of prison again. Albert Chagnon, 35, is set to be released into Oneida County on Tuesday.
Chagnon was convicted of child pornography possession in 2003.
He was released in 2014, but soon ended up under arrest again for using newspaper clippings of girls' pictures to make a booklet. That booklet had more than 270 photos in it, many from the Lakeland Times.
PHILLIPS - A good apple pie makes any Thanksgiving dinner better. So when people from the Aspirus Pleasant View Nursing Home decided they wanted to give back to the community, making apple pies seemed like a great way to do that. With the help of students from Phillips High School, they peeled, sliced, and sugared their way to a team effort.
You can check out thousands of books from the Rhinelander District Library, but you do need to return them. Now, the library hopes you stop by to take and keep one of the most important documents in our nation's history.
The library is giving out free pocket copies of the Constitution this week. Director Virginia Roberts started the program last year and ordered 100 more copies this year for Constitution Week, which started Sept. 17.
RHINELANDER - Government red tape could force at least a partial shutdown of a popular Northwoods transportation option as soon as next week.
The Oneida-Vilas Transit Commission, which operates 12 low-cost buses within and between Rhinelander, Minocqua, and Eagle River, is still waiting on a $300,000 payment from the federal government. The program, which operates as Northwoods Transit Connections, could start cutting back services as soon as Monday if it can't find a temporary fix.
