Local student videographers shoot commercial for Super Bowl Doritos contest
MINOCQUA - People love watching commercials during the Super Bowl.

One Northwoods video club wants to use their skills to make one of those commercials.

You'll see this behind the scenes at most video shoots.

But for Charlotte Fohner's video students, this is their chance to shoot a Super Bowl commercial.

That's because Doritos will use the best homemade commercial.

"I went to the Doritos website and I read their rules. Kind of went through it," Fohner said.

"Then I emailed Paul, who is helping me direct the video club, and said hey what do you think about this for a project for video club."

Fohner formed a video club in September.

She wanted to help kids who have the same passion for videography.

"During the summer we often have high school age people to come and help us at our work place. One of them is high school senior named Paul Hein who was interested in learning more video," said Fohner.

"When I found out his friends wanted to learn more, I was like well here's an opportunity for me to give some of my knowledge to people who want to learn more and create a group."

So they used the Super Bowl Doritos Commercial contest as a teaching lesson.

"We've done stuff before, but this is kind of the first video we've done using the members of the club," Video Club, co-leader, Paul Hein said.

"As a club planning it out a lot in advanced and stuff like that. So I feel like this was a pretty good experience for all of us."

The goal is to have the commercial played during the Super Bowl.

They would also like to win one million dollar prize.

But for now, they're just focused on perfecting their skills.

"I think none of us we're expecting to win or are expecting to win. The chances of that are one in a very large number," Hein said.

"So I don't think any of us expected to win. We just wanted to have a good time and kinda get more experience."

EAGLE RIVER - Americans eat more than 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving Day. That much thawing, handling, and cooking of turkeys means people can make mistakes.

The Vilas County Public Health Department wants to help people avoid exposing themselves to dangerous bacteria. It says frozen turkeys should always be thawed in the refrigerator or under running water.

"You don't want to set them out on your countertop for any amount of time to thaw them because that's when they're going to be in the 'danger zone.' The 'danger zone' is between 40 and 140 [degrees Fahrenheit], and that's when pathogens can grow," said Vilas County Registered Sanitarian Amy Springer.

TOMAHAWK - The rain didn't stop a big crowd from going to an event that's become tradition.
The Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce hosted its 52nd Venison Feed.

 It kicks off the gun deer hunting season which starts tomorrow. 
 
You'll find grill master Gregg Albert at the same spot this year as he has for decades.

"From what we know it's one of the last in the country that even exist.

If I had to say one word it would be tradition," said Albert. 

The Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce's 52nd Venison Feed brought out some old timers and some newbies to kick off the start of the deer hunting season. 

Albert's grilled for about 33 years. 

I found Rhinelander's Steve Norman's on his sixth free venison burger. 

"Sweet it's good. I'm on my last one," said Norman.

He's not a hunter.

"I just fish like heck," said Norman. 

However, Norman still gets a lot out of the celebration.
