MANITOWISH WATERS - Wisconsin can be known for its beer brewing history.
But to one Northwoods organization, it's the combination of beer and wine that puts it on the map.
The Discovery Center in Manitowish Waters will host "Wine in the Woods" and "Beer by the Bog" Saturday.
People can sip spirits and listen to live music.
The event helps the center raise money for summer programs.
Organizers like Sarah Johnson hope they can help connect others to the Northwoods.
"This beautiful area that we all love and really kind of touches them in a different way and allows them to appreciate the area in a different way," Johnson said. "Then it can maybe help them support the area in a different way."
Wine and beer will be auctioned off.
The selection includes everything from local spirits to exotic European wines.
There will also be pizza from local restaurants.
"It's a wonderful casual evening, it's a great event, it's a great place to get out to enjoy and hopefully people get to know a bit more about the Discovery Center when they are here," Johnson said.
RHINELANDER - For better or worse, drivers in Rhinelander will get an extra week to use the Davenport Street bridge. The city's contractor for its downtown reconstruction project delayed closing the bridge for repairs to May 8th.
Crews first planned to close the bridge in mid-April, then pushed that back to May 1 due to weather. Now, weather has further delaying the month-long repairs to the concrete decking.
This is part of a larger project to finish up the downtown reconstruction, which began in March 2016. The city reconstructed 21 blocks, replacing underground utilities and modernizing the downtown area.
ANTIGO - Pushups, wall sits, and sit ups may sound like a tough workout for most of us. But dozens of kids from the Boys and Girls Club of Langlade County did that and more as part of a national fitness competition Friday afternoon.
Boys and Girls Clubs from around the country are teaming up to help kids become more active with the Nestlé's National Fitness Competition.
MINOCQUA - Police officers often meet people on their worst days: after a death, crime, or other bad situations. The Minocqua Police Department hopes some unpaid additions to their staff can help victims, families, and officers cope with those situations a little better.
The department is looking to add a team of clergy members to form a chaplain program. The chaplains would be on call and show up to scenes when needed. Chief David Jaeger had been considering the idea for a while when he heard about police in Oneida County using the same program.
