Dairyland Walkers take a trip to RhinelanderSubmitted: 05/28/2017
RHINELANDER - Each county in the state of Wisconsin offers something unique. There are different scenic views, museums, and even interesting creatures like the Hodag.

That's why a group of people, also known as the Dairyland Walkers, travel around the state.

On Saturday, about 50 members of the Madison-based group visited Rhinelander. Oneida County is the 68th county they've walked.


"The nice things about the walks are basically set up to showcase the best an area has to offer. We look for unique buildings, historic areas, beautiful parks, and we've got them all here," said Dairyland Walkers Trailmaster Don Suloff.

People can participate in either the 5K or 10K walk. When organizers are planning walks, they make sure to include scenic areas and interesting sights.

"A lot of us are from the Madison-area. It's fun to get up to the northern part of the state. We've got a beautiful day," said Mary Liebig from Madison.

The club has about 200 members.

MADISON - Wisconsin Democrats say they are increasingly optimistic about their chances of knocking of Republican Gov. Scott Walker next year, even though a top tier candidate has yet to emerge and they're still recovering from a devastating 2016 election.

Democrats are gathering this weekend for the Wisconsin state party convention. They say liberals are energized in opposition both to President Donald Trump and Republicans closely tied to him like Walker.

Walker's approval rating has been below 50 percent since early 2014.

But their recent track record hasn't been good. Democrats are still trying to recover from Trump becoming the first Republican presidential candidate to carry Wisconsin since 1984. And Walker has been challenged plenty but has won three elections since 2010.

ANTIGO - When police showed up to a car crash near Antigo this week, the driver seemed discombobulated and out of sorts.  Sunday night, Pao Vang, 33, told officers he had just flown in from vacation with someone else, even though he was the only one in the car.  But it's what officers did find in that car soon after that has Vang in trouble.

Police towed the car from an intersection near the Langlade County Airport (where Vang said he just came from) to a nearby gas station.  There, officers noticed bags full of what appeared to be marijuana sticking out of duffel bags in plain sight.  They got a search warrant and found 133 pounds of high-grade marijuana.
