CRANDON, TOMAHAWK - The Crandon Wrestling Team has shown it's power throughout the Northern Lakes Conference this season.
The Cardinals are undefeated in conference duel meets. They also feature three wrestlers who are state ranked. They proved to be too much for Three Lakes on Thursday night, winning the match 63-15.
In the 195-lb. match, Crandon's Isiah Doame earned a pin. Carter Shampo - who is state-ranked - collected a technical fall victory at 132 pounds.
Emerson Hegeman collected the loan pinfall victory for Three Lakes. Hegeman is ranked #2 among the state's top Division 3 Heavyweight wrestlers.
Meanwhile in Tomahawk, the Hatchet boys and girls hockey teams had home games on Thursday. The girls game was a make-up from Tuesday night - a result of the weather which hit a greater portion of the Northwoods.
The Hatchet girls faced Marshfield, who proved to be too much. Marshfield won 9-2. Paige Johnson scored two goals and added three assists for the Tigers.
EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River's annual Paul Bunyan Fest brings out thousands of people. This year was no exception. Organizers say about 3,000 people filled the streets of downtown Eagle River on Wednesday.
The 37th annual Paul Bunyan Fest featured chainsaw carving demonstrations, more than 80 arts and craft booths, and music.
RHINELANDER - You probably wouldn't consider a dark, smelly alley an ideal place to sit and relax. Maggie Steffen agrees, which is why she's planning to transform an alley on Brown Street in Rhinelander.
Steffen plans to tackle the project in three phases. Phase one is lighting the alley, which sits between The Brick restaurant and Bath and Body Creations. Downtown Rhinelander, Inc. agreed to pay about $2,800 for five LED lights if the city would pay for the electricity.
RHINELANDER - DNR Furbearer Research Scientist Dr. Nathan Roberts calls bobcats "a conservation success story." Their population numbers are up across the United States.
The DNR doubled the harvest quota this year at 750 bobcats because of that healthy population size.
"While the population's grown, we've also increased our understanding of bobcats considerably. Working together with hunters and trappers across the state we've increased our understanding of bobcats and our ability to monitor bobcats," said Roberts.
