More than 50 pumpkins lined Courtney Street
RHINELANDER - People usually show off their pumpkins in their window or on their porch.

But carvers in Rhinelander joined forces and displayed more than 50 pumpkins in front of Trig's.

This is the first pumpkin glow Downtown Rhinelander Incorporated has put together.

They started having kids decorate them back in 2006.

But this year they wanted to do something that would catch the eye.

"This year we decided to do the pumpkin glow instead of having kids just decorate pumpkins, bring them downtown and we'd have them judged for a contest," said DRI Organization Committee chairman, Joan Belongia.

"That's how it got started. I didn't know how much work it was going to be."

The pumpkin display was a success and brought plenty of people out to see the creations.

The pumpkins were only on display Saturday night.

Most have been picked up.

If you missed the display, you can see the rest of them at the Hext Theater on Brown Street in downtown Rhinelander.

RHINELANDER - You can find everything from edible berries to garnishes right in your own backyard.

"Master Gardeners of the North" wants to teach you how.

Tonight's class will be on foraging for edibles in the Northwoods.

Even though edibles can be easy to find, volunteer Tom Jerow says you should leave enough behind for wildlife and next year's crop.

" You should really link up with a mentor, someone who knows what they're doing. Someone who can identify the food that you're looking for," says Jerow.

You can find nuts, grapes, and sumac pretty easily this time of year.

The Master Gardeners meet tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the Oneida County Senior Center.

MERRILL - The Merrill Fire Department has a new high-tech fire extinguisher training device.

It allows users to put out a fire without using an actual fire.

Firefighter Bryson Cruise says this is much easier and safer because the old device could only be taught with a real fire outside.

"The screen is reactive to the laser inside the extinguisher and it simulates the fire with both light and sound," explained Cruise.

The device was a gift from three of Merrill's largest businesses, Church Mutual Insurance Company, Weinbrenner Shoe Company and Park City Credit Union.
