- It's archery season for thousands of deer hunters. Turkey and waterfoul seasons are also underway. Fishing however is also holding strong. Here's this week's "Big Ol' Fish."
Tomahawk's Matthew Long was fishing at an area lake with his younger brother this summer. Using plastic worms for bait, he got a strike. Matthew reeled in this nice 19 1/2 inch smallouth bass. After the picture, the fish was released.
Kyle Austin of Eagle River was fishing for bluegills with a friend on the Eagle River chain. Using Crappie minnows for bait, he did catch an 8-inch blue gill. However, as he was hauling it in, this 23 1/2 inch smallmouth bass swallowed the blue gill. It weighed 6 1/2 pounds. It's the biggest one one he's ever caught. This one was also released to fight another day.
And take a look at this beauty caught by 5 year old Wyatt Citta of Hazelhurst. While fishing with his dad on Skunk Lake, he got this beautiful 14 inch crappie. It's the biggest one he's ever caught. Using a worm on a bobber, he reeled in the crappie all by himself. I'm told as much as he enjoyed catching the fish, eating it for supper was even better.
We'll tell you the judge's decision in the preliminary hearing for an Eagle River woman charged with locking a nurse practitioner in the Marshfield Clinic office. Her ex-husband is accused of threatening the practitioner with a hatchet and meat tenderizer.
We talk to a Price County woman who was one of 8 interns worldwide hired by Harley Davidson.
And we'll show you how Nicolet College is giving students a "Quick Start" with the college application process.
We'll bring you the details on these stories and more tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.
RHINELANDER - Nicolet College offers incoming students a faster way to get through the hassle of the college application process.Wednesday's "Quick Start" day in Rhinelander gave students one-on-one attention with career coaches and college advisors.
Nicolet staff walked students through applications, assessments and financial aid to make sure they don't get overwhelmed.
Career coach Angeline von Neupert said "Quick Start" gives students and staff an opportunity to get to know each other.
"It's really neat to get to know the students individually and kind of walk them through the process. It's cool to come together as a team. We're usually scheduling them and then they come back and go back and forth," said von Neupert
Fall classes start in August. If students missed Quick Start day they can schedule a meeting with a Nicolet College advisor.
MERRILL - As Linda DeBroux walks through Merrill High School, she can see the halls she helped create.
What started as plain, whitewashed walls now look like an art gallery. For each of the last 13 summers, DeBroux has guided a select group of her art students to create murals to fill the walls.
"When I walk down, I don't just see the painting, I see the student, right there, painting on that wall," she said Wednesday. "I think of all the struggles, the struggle points they had, and parts where they celebrated."
Murals by ten students this week will bring the total to 157 on school walls. Like it does every summer, it will take long days to accomplish the project.
