RHINELANDER - Even with snow on the ground, people in the Northwoods can start preparing for their perfect summer wedding. Lund and Taylor Bridal Gallerie hosts its annual Magic Moments Bridal Expo in Rhinelander this Saturday."Girls need to get their dresses ordered like now for summer and fall weddings," said Taylor.
Owner and operator of Rhinelander's Lund and Taylor Bridal Gallerie, Mary Taylor, says you can never start planning your wedding too early."Almost anything you need for your wedding we'll have it here," said Taylor.
The expo will have local vendors ready to fulfill any bride's needs, as well as a fashion show in the afternoon.


"In the fashion show you get to see a dress on. They look so much better on, than on a hanger," explained Taylor. The expo is free and open to anyone, even if you're still single."There are always those girls that are just trying to give their guy the hint," joked Taylor.Taylor is expecting 200 to 300 people to stop by to support local businesses."It brings people downtown and that's very important to us," said Taylor.
The admission to the Bridal Expo is free. A voluntary donation to the Rhinelander Food Pantry is encouraged.

EAGLE RIVER - Take salvaged metal and wood, hand it to one Eagle River artist, and watch his imagination come to life.

It's all thanks to a man dedicated to combining nature with what's manmade.

Ken Schels isn't your typical carpenter or welder. 

He welds, chops, and carves fantasy into reality for his clients at his KMS workshop. 

The Northwoods native can tell you where every piece of wood in his shop comes from.

He'll also tell you about all of the metal pieces he has collected over the years for his projects.
Gears, chains, axes, and bolts are just some of the pieces you can spot in his art. 

"One guys says, 'That's a Ford wrench, that's worth $30!' Well I'm like, you stand there and watch me weld it in," said Schels. 

Ken admits his work is out-of-the-box and a little strange at times, but he does it so people can have something to pass on through history.

THREE LAKES - Students in Three Lakes now have a new option for winter recess.

 This year the Three Lakes Park District donated an ice skating rink to the Three Lakes Elementary School.

The Three Lakes Fire Department and other members of the community joined in to put the rink together. 

The ice skating rink was originally at Burnside Park. Moving the rink to the school made it smaller and more accessible for students.

"It's a really good feeling because, it gives the kids something to do," said Three Lakes Fire Chief Dave Kirby. 

"You can only [go on the swings a certain amount of times] in the winter. 

[They get to] skate and do something they like, it's a good feeling."
