RHINELANDER - People hit the runway in Rhinelander today.
But it wasn't only to get a look at fun new fashions - the event benefitted Art Start.
People packed the Northwoods Banquet Center for 7th annual Deja Vu Fashion Show in Rhinelander.
And some of Newswatch 12's very own even strutted their stuff.
"We've got a runway show. We've got handmade items from people around the world, so a fair trade booth. We also have items for sale from the Northwoods artists. And all of the items on the catwalk are available for sale, and their being consigned to us by local Northwoods retailers," says ArtStart board member Judi Linder.
The luncheon and fashion show focused on accessories.
All the money went to ArtStart.
The center will soon open a new exhibition.
The current exhibition on the Art of Hunting and Fishing ends August 31st.
Hayley Tenpas and Adam Fox were some of the models in the show.
RHINELANDER - Looking back on his 28 years as airport director, Joe Brauer says he has a lot to be proud of.
"When we got the disabled passenger lift, the non-motorized one, we were very, very proud of that," said Brauer, who's worked as the airport director for 28 years. He's also been in the airline business for 20 years.
Now, the longtime Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport director will be passing things off to a familiar face.
MADISON - The Wisconsin Senate has unanimously approved an $80 million juvenile justice overhaul plan that would close the troubled Lincoln Hills prison by 2021 and replace it with smaller regional facilities.
The Senate voted without any debate Tuesday to pass the plan, which largely mirrors what the Assembly unanimously approved last month.
