RHINELANDER - Whether you make great cookies or great works of art, Oneida County Fair organizers want to see what you can do.
The county fair doesn't start until August 1st. But organizers need your project submissions before July 1st.
You just need to decide what you'd like to show off and then figure out which category or exhibition book your project falls under.
Oneida County U.W. 4-H Youth Development Agent Lynn Feldman says there's an exhibition book for just about any project and age.
"Maybe there's a special picture that you took this year that you would like to have other people see and you would like to have critiqued by a judge. Then you take this exhibition book and look through the cultural arts category, look for the photography area, and then it will show you the different types of photography exhibits that can be brought in."
The exhibition books and entry forms can be found at the Rhinelander Chamber, the Rhinelander Senior Center, or at the UW-Extension Office located at the Rhinelander Airport.
RHINELANDER - The initial emergency call -- someone screaming for help on a lake near Rhinelander Thursday afternoon -- sounded bad, but it appears it was a false alarm.
Search and rescue crews called in Newbold's air boat to search Lake Thompson around 1:45 p.m.
Pelican Deputy Fire Chief Norman Peterson said first responders first searched the west bay shoreline on foot. They then used the air boat to sweep the entire lake, but didn't find anyone, any tracks, or any places someone might have gone through the ice.
IRMA - Until Thursday, we never got an inside look at Lincoln Hills School and Youth Prison. We have heard from Lincoln Hills line staff and the Department of Corrections, but never were able to see the facility.
Thursday the DOC held a guided media tour of the school and living units. Newswatch12's Rose McBride has been following the stories that come out of Lincoln Hills for months now, and she went on that media tour.
