Local Woman Wins National Baking ChallengeSubmitted: 03/23/2012

ANTIGO - Exciting news for an Antigo baking enthusiast we featured on Newswatch 12 Today in February.

Emily Bokern entered her recipe for The Ultimate Ice Cream Sandwich (pictured here) in the Martha White Muffin Mix Challenge and was selected as one of five finalists from around the country.

Earlier this week she found out she received the top spot.

"I've been entering contests for about eight years and I just do a few a year and I've never won. So, I just could not believe that I was a finalist and then to win was just outrageously fun", said Bokern.

She wins $5,000 and a Martha White gift basket worth $50.


Emily's recipe is below:

Crisco® No-Stick Cooking Spray
1 (7.4 oz) package Martha White® Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
1/2 cup Smucker's® Hot Fudge Topping
2 tablespoons chopped, salted peanuts

1. SPRAY Belgian waffle maker with no-stick cooking spray. Heat to medium temperature.

2. STIR together muffin mix, milk and egg in medium bowl until well blended. Spoon half the batter into the waffle maker. Cook 3 to 4 minutes according to manufacturer's directions. Repeat with remaining batter. Cool completely.

3. PLACE one waffle on a serving plate. Spread evenly with ice cream. Place remaining waffle on top of the ice cream to make a large ice cream sandwich. If ice cream gets too soft, return to freezer until ice cream hardens.

4. HEAT fudge sauce in microwave-safe bowl on high for 30 seconds in the microwave. Drizzle the hot fudge on top of the ice cream sandwich. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top of the hot fudge. Cut into four servings and enjoy immediately or freeze for later enjoyment.

Makes 4 servings

Northwoods composite panels could mean improvements for home foundations Submitted: 07/23/2014

EAGLE RIVER - A new type of foundation could give you a better way to build a home, and the idea for the improvement starts right here in the Northwoods.

Composite Panel Systems in Eagle River builds composite panels for home foundations. Composite means anything made of two or more materials, which includes fiberglass in this case. The company describes the EPITOME Quality Foundation Wall as a revolutionary composite building solution for residential foundations.

The company makes them off site, and then they put them together on location. Composite Panel Systems' Scott Weber says that means a shorter build time compared to concrete foundations.

Antigo Mayor vetoes ambulance purchase, wants to see city buy from local companySubmitted: 07/23/2014

ANTIGO - The Antigo City Council will vote again to decide from which company they'll buy the city's newest ambulance.

The city council voted earlier this month to buy the cheapest ambulance.

Antigo's mayor vetoed that because he thinks buying a local ambulance is a better decision.

The Antigo City Council voted earlier in July to buy an ambulance from a company based out of Ohio.

The ambulance from Ohio was $66 cheaper than the bid from a company in Antigo, but the local ambulance would come with an extra year's warranty.

Antigo's mayor felt it was worth it to spend a little extra, that's why he vetoed the council's decision.

Gardens need some help with large temperature swings in summerSubmitted: 07/23/2014

RHINELANDER - Northwoods heat the past few days forced plants to endure different weather, but you don't need to do extra gardening just because it's hot.

Experts at Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander say plants can manage the heat just fine. On hot, sunny days, many plants will wilt, but that doesn't mean they need more water.

"If the soil is moist on a hot day, I wouldn't water more. That's probably more harm. The plant can only take up so much moisture at a time, so I would just hold off on watering," says Sue Hanson, Hanson's Garden Village Co-Owner.
