CRANDON - For the second straight weekend, Crandon Off Road Raceway is busy.
This weekend its the Super Truck Challenge.
Mud drag racing, Tug O-war and Burn out competitions are among the events going on tonight and tomorrow.
It's open to anyone with a good truck or jeep.
One other eye-catching event, an obstacle course for what's called Rockers.
Why rockers - well to get over these rocky hills, wooden steps, and other elements - you generally need to rock.
Sometimes you get stuck, eventually you find a way to overcome the obstacle.
"It takes skill, you gotta be on your toes," Ryan Pribbernow of Spencer explains. "You gotta know where to pick the right line. It's a challenge. You're not going to take any vehicle, you're not going to take anybody and be like drive to the top."
"It's a challenge, you have to be one with the vehicle and take the right line and take it to the top. Great time, I love it."
Racing continues Saturday. Registration begins at 9am on Saturday. Racing starts at 10am.
WOODRUFF - The frontline against Aquatic Invasive Species starts at boat landings across the Northwoods. But understanding what you're fighting starts in Northwoods Schools.
That's why Arbor-Vitae Woodruff Elementary School teachers are teaching their students about AIS.
More than 50 fourth grade students have been learning about invasive species, participating in field work, and going on field trips through The Great Lakes Expedition. It's all part of the school's curriculum to teach fourth grade students about Wisconsin's history and geography.
RHINELANDER - People at Rhinelander's City Hall know if you need to know a specific ordinance or resolution, you could always turn to Kathy Johnson. That's going to change this week. The city administrator's assistant retires at the end of the day Friday.
Johnson started working for the city five years ago. She and her husband moved here from Rockford, Illinois. Johnson served under four city administrators over that time, including Blaine Oborn, Phil Parkinson, Kristina Aschenbrenner, and Keith Kost.
