- Tonight on Newswatch 12:


We take our Long Summer Weekend to Langlade County:

We talk about the importance of lumber industry in Langlade County and throughout Wisconsin, and we talk to Northcentral Technical College and a local lumber company about how NTC is like a pipeline of talent for the industry.

We show you the Langlade County Fair's annual horsemanship showcase and introduce you to some of the competitors.

And when you go shopping for produce, you normally take a list and pull straight from the store shelf. But tonight we take you to a Deerbrook farm where you buy a season's worth of vegetables without knowing what you'll get.


We'll bring you the details on these stories and more on our long summer weekend in Langlade County tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.

LANGLADE - A legacy that started in 1947 lives on in the small community of Langlade. 

Bob and Joni's bar has gone through three generations of owners and a few name changes since it opened more than 70 years ago. 

However, one thing has remained the same. 

"If you're not laughing, smiling, having a good time, you're probably at the wrong bar," said Bob and Joni's manager Jeremy Walters.

35- year-old Jeremy Walters jumped at the chance to help at his family's bar.

"You're supposed to be 18, I'm pretty sure I was a little early on that," said Walters. 

Walters' grandfather opened the bar in 1947 as the Northern Lights. 

It was passed along to Walters' father. 

Now Walters' manages the same bar, now Bob and Joni's. 
 
When Walters' grandfather first opened the bar, it used to attract 20 people.

 After more than 70 years in business, a lot has changed.
