MINOCQUA - Plenty of fun things can happen at a beerfest in the Northwoods.

But you probably wouldn't plan on going there to find your future spouse.

Well that's what happened to Paul Field and Liz Brodek at the Lac Du Flambaeu Brewfest.

They met last year while Field was working at the event. The two of them still can't believe how they met.

"It's crazy, completely unexpected," Brodek said.

"It happened early in the beer fest which i think is important," Field said.

This year the couple celebrates their anniversary at the festival. The band even honored the couple.

Looking back, Field says he didn't notice Brodek at first.

"The second she said she wanted something hoppier, i started paying attention to who I was talking to," Field said. "At a beer fest you are just pouring a lot beers and once I actually took a look and saw her it was love at first sight."

The couple is planning to get married next August.

PHILLIPS - Many parents worry about their children being distracted while driving.

Students at Phillips High School got to learn about how hard it is to drive while impaired or distracted.

The Phillips Police Department and school district hosted The Save A Life Tour for students Friday afternoon. It teaches kids the negative impacts of impaired driving.

Students took turns in two different chairs to feel what distracted driving feels like.

"One is simulating being impaired or intoxicated, and it shows what happens while the students are driving that," said Phillips Police Department Lieutenant Al Cummings. "The other one is regarding distracted driving, and actually students need to answer text messages while they're driving."
