WAUSAU - Section finals throughout the state decided Saturday night in volleyball.
In Division One, Merrill faced Wisconsin Valley foe Marshfield at Wausau East High School. After dropping the first game, Merrill won the next three to win the match, 3-1. The Bluejays are headed to the state tourney for the first time since Ronald Reagan's first term as president, 1982.
In division 2, Tomahawk faced Barron in Altoona. The Hatchets won the match in a sweep. They return to state for the 4th straight year. Last season, Tomahawk finished as the state runner-up in Division 2.
In D-4, Florence met Newman Catholic - the defending section champs in Marion. Newman Catholic won the match 3-zip.
EAGLE RIVER - The initiative will help to rebound what's thought of as a suffering walleye population by adding hundreds of thousands of the fish to Wisconsin lakes.
The project could improve fishing for the state's most popular game fish and tourism in the state. George Langely, a local fishing guide at Eagle Sports bait shop in Eagle River, says walleye fishing isn't what it used to be.
"The walleye population has pretty much suffered in the last twenty years and it's really nice to see Madison recognizing that and taking some steps to do something about it. It will take a while but it's a great start."
MINOCQUA - “This disease is called the great imitator for a good reason,” says Jeff Waite.
Lyme disease can be good at hiding.
“Lyme disease is a bacterial type infection spread by a spiral keet, which is also considered a parasite. And it can be carried in the spit glands and intestinal track of ticks in this area. Particularly the deer tick," said Dr. Kurt Landauer.
