RHINELANDER - Some people can't wait for new cars to come on the market, but a group of people here in the Northwoods can't wait to drive their cars that changed the market a century ago.
Model T owners from all over the state are members of the Dairyland Tin Lizzies Model T Ford Club.
"We're just a group that own Model T's. We like to get out and drive them around. We have events such as what we have here now this weekend, at least one a month throughout the year," says Dairyland Tin Lizzies Model T Ford Club member Bob Bruso.
About 20 members spent this Labor Day weekend touring the Northwoods in their vintage cars.
People stopped to look at the old cars driving down the street.
"We've got a little local tour of the Northwoods here. We're going to start out here in Rhinelander. End up up in St. Germain, at the snowmobile museum, up to Sayner for lunch, back to Eagle River down to Clearwater Lake to the Petroleum Museum, the winery in Three Lakes, naturally. And then back to Rhinelander," Bruso added.
Ford created the Model T in 1908 and produced them until 1927.
People also called them "Tin Lizzies."
Ford made the Model T to give the common man an affordable car.
The model made up as much as 40 percent of the cars on the road.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
