RHINELANDER - Your mom may have told you not to make loud noises, but these guys are staying busy by doing just that.
But it wasn't all beat-boxing Saturday night.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison MadHatters are an A Cappella men group formed of 15 singers and a vocal percussionist, but they're not your traditional A Cappella group.
"I think what separates us from a lot of other groups is that first and for most we're trying to have fun," said Business Manager, Joe Meeker.
"We're trying to have a product that we're really happy with, but at the end of the day we're just doing this to amuse ourselves. We hope that people will like that and we hope that it shows on stage."
And by the reaction from the crowd, it seems like they made that happen.
"It's really good, they do such a good job. It's nice that their a cappella come up and make it funny and talented too." said audience member, Dorothy Johnson.
"My favorite part was when he broke it down for the beat boxing," audience member, Karlie Raeka said.
"It just intrigues me how it comes out of one person.
They're not only popular here in Rhinelander, but they're also well-known across the country.
"We actually just this winter flew out to Washington D.C. to perform at the white house for guest of the president and first lady." Meeker said.
This weekend tickets were sold out, but you have another chance to catch them on April 19th in Madison.
"Definitely buy your tickets early because they sell really fast." said audience member, Jennine Karaba.
ANTIGO - People around the country will see just how much a police officer killed in the line of duty meant to his family and community.
Karl's Transport in Antigo revealed its newest semi-trailer design Tuesday afternoon. The trailer features Everest Metro Detective Jason Weiland. Weiland, 40, was shot and killed in a shooting rampage around the Wausau area on March 22, 2017.
MARATHON COUNTY - Two important Wisconsin products won't benefit from a possible trade war. It will likely hurt them. Last month President Trump placed tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports. China came back and slapped tariffs on more than 100 U.S. products. The motives are political. But the effects trickle down to hurt local economies.
When it comes to growing ginseng, nobody does it quite like Marathon County.
"Wisconsin ginseng is sort of the cream of the crop when it comes to American ginseng," said Hsu's Ginseng Enterprises Director of Operations Mike Klemp-North.
Ninety percent of the U.S.'s ginseng crop is grown in Wisconsin. Ninety-five percent of that crop is grown in Marathon County.
EAGLE RIVER - Several Northwoods schools wanted to make it clear to their students Wednesday, there's always someone there to talk to. Anti-Bullying and suicide prevention speaker Bob Lenz spoke at Three Lakes and Northland Pines high schools Wednesday. Northland Pines Dean of Students Josh Tilley said he hopes students walk away from the talk knowing they can reach out to at least one person when they feel alone.
"Over the last few years, we've been bringing speakers in, national, local and state speakers so that we can really help our students understand that if they feel different they have the opportunity to be an individual, but if it's hurting them they can get help," said Tilley. Northland Pines staff members recently looked closely at their relationships with students by reviewing class rosters. They want to make sure all students have support.
