ST. GERMAIN - The smells are wafting and people are packing St. Germain for the annual Pig in the Pines RibFest.
With eight years under their belt in St. Germain, the director of the chamber of commerce, Bill Neider, says these ribs have really taken off since the idea of a bbq style event was born, "We were looking for something new and different that had never been done in the Northwoods. So we asked some of the vendors if they'd be willing to come up here and give it a try."
There have been new vendors over the years and recipes are always changing, but when it comes to a delicious rack of ribs there's always the basics.
Kassi Russell is the owner of Pigtails BBQ and says, "You want to make sure it's tender. Plenty of seasoning and sauces. We have a variety of little seasonings that we put on there, it's a little secret but it makes it unique. The tenderness, we do our ribs a little bit differently. Just them falling off the bone makes them really good."
If you want to stop by the Pig in the Pines you can check out the live music Friday night or this weekend it's free admission between 11:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
MINOCQUA - “This disease is called the great imitator for a good reason,” says Jeff Waite.
Lyme disease can be good at hiding.
“Lyme disease is a bacterial type infection spread by a spiral keet, which is also considered a parasite. And it can be carried in the spit glands and intestinal track of ticks in this area. Particularly the deer tick," said Dr. Kurt Landauer.
