Local anglers win PMTT
EAGLE RIVER - We live in one of the best places in the country for fishing. This weekend hundreds of musky fishermen tried their luck in Eagle River.

94 teams took part in the Pro Musky Tournament Trail. They fished on 10 lakes on the Eagle River chain and had lots of success. A total of 59 muskies were caught and released over the 2 days and the biggest one was 47 and a quarter inch! Of course, when I was out there today I didn't see any, but the tournament director told me why this is such a great place for Musky.

Also, the big winners today were local! Jared Adamovich and Jeremy Barber of Eagle River were the only team to boat 4 muskies and took first place.

RHINELANDER - One Rhinelander woman may see a 10-year-old bucket list wish come true.

 On Monday the Rhinelander Parks Committee supported having a dog park at Shepard Park in Rhinelander. 

For 10 years Tina Werres has been advocating to get support for a dog park in Rhinelander.

The decision is now left to the Rhinelander City Council when they vote on June 12th.

The same council denied the park in the past.

"I was very happy, I will be even happier when I hear the 'yes' at the council because we've come this far before with Pioneer park," said Werres. 

This is the second time Shepard Park has been proposed.

MADISON - The Legislature's budget committee has decided to put off votes on the University of Wisconsin System budget because Senate Republicans can't agree on what to do about tuition rates.

Gov. Scott Walker's budget calls for cutting tuition by 5 percent and giving the system $35 million to offset the lost revenue. It also would give the system $42.5 million in additional state aid. Campuses that do better on new performance standards would get bigger chunks of the funding.
