Merrill's First Bridal Expo
MERRILL - This is the first year Merrill organized the bridal expo at the Smith Center.

One of the main events was the fashion show.

"It's nice to see all the different fashions right now just to get some ideas because I'm not really sure what I'm going to go with yet." said bride-to-be, Mary Kelnholfer.

Brides who haven't had time to taste test cakes at a local bakery got that chance with a couple of the venders.

"We've had a lot of people come by and talk about ideas for their wedding, flavor ideas, color ideas and different ways that we can really customize all the different deserts to fit their receptions." Sweet Life Bakery Boutique Owner, Katie Anderson said.

The venders ranged from honeymoon planning to jewelry and hair care products.

"We have catering companies. We have floral, Rosie's floral," Merrill Park and Recreation Department Administrative Assistant, Dawn Smith said.

"So we have a wide variety of venders here."

If you're stumped about what to add for entertainment at your wedding, there's something you can do which is old school, but has a new twist.

"It's like the old drug store photo booth. You used to put a quarter in and it was film. Now it's all digital," said Owner of Brian West Show, Brian West.

"It's a lot of fun scrapbook memories. And it's a great take away for couples and their guest."

Another attraction that drew in the crowd was the cake dive.

"Ten brides will be chosen. They have to keep one hand behind their back and they will take their other hand and actually have to dig into the cake," Smith said.

"We have ten rings buried inside the cake with the prizes in. "

There was even a man cave for the brave men who joined their fiancÚs.

"It was fun. I won a lot of prizes and relaxed," said fiancÚ, Jason Goldwski.

"Watched her enjoy herself. That was the main reason I came."

RHINELANDER - Our nervous system controls the whole show when it comes to our bodies, especially how they feel.

Chiropractic care is one method people use to keep that system moving.

Hometown Chiropractic is new to Rhinelander, but it's no stranger to the Northwoods; its main location is in Tomahawk.

People might think traumas like slipping on ice or car accidents are the only reasons to see a chiropractor.

Dr. Grace Zuiker Nash says you don't need to be injured to come in.

"We want to get those misalignments checked. Sometimes they don't show up as a major pain symptom.

They show up as something smaller and less obvious," says Dr. Grace.

Dr. Grace says she sees babies as soon as one day old.

That's because nervous system issues should be treated sooner rather than later.

"We as adults know that they don't feel good. We want the best for our kids and we don't want to see them go through that," says Dr. Grace.

Hometown Chiropractic always accepts new patients.

The school has hired four coaches and scheduled signup and equipment handout for later this month. Practice is to begin August 28th.

The school is named for Vince Lombardi, who coached the Packers from 1959-67 and won five NFL championships and the first two Super Bowls.

EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River Mayor Jeff Hyslop knows some of the streets, water lines, and sewers in his city have been on "life support" for years, as he puts it.

A multi-million-dollar construction project will help fix some of the areas in the worst trouble.

Eagle River replaced pipes, roads, and sidewalks on part of Division Street over the last two years.

"After decades, it was work that needed to be done," Hyslop said. "This project is going to continue on and finish Division Street all the way to Silver Lake Road."

EAGLE RIVER - A 40,000 square-foot addition designed to last 100 years opens up in less than two weeks.  A number of Vilas County offices are set to move into the courthouse expansion in Eagle River on August 24th and 25th.

Construction on the building started in August 2016.  The $11 million project stayed on budget and had just one week's worth of delays.  That was due to getting a proper air handling unit shipped and installed.

"There was a lot of common sense and practicality that went into the design, but we've also designed for the future," county clerk Dave Alleman said.  "We all certainly hope that there needs to be no more additions like this for Vilas County government."
