ONALASKA - It was a rough day for the Rhinelander Rebels at the state AA legion tournament on Monday. The Rebels fell to Holmen 5-1.
Rebel pitcher Troy White lasted just three innings, allowing four runs. Kyle Comer hit a home run in the fourth inning, to provide Rhinelander's lone run.
The loss was Rhinelander's first in the state legion tournament. The Rebels will now face Menash in an elimination game at noon on Tuesday. If the Rebels win, they would advance to the championship game scheduled for 5pm. Rhinelander would need to win the next three games to win their second state championship in three years.
MINOCQUA - These plants may look pretty but they're taking over our rivers and lakes. Michele Sadauskas is Oneida County's Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator. She is working to map and control the yellow iris, the plant you see here. She and two other conservation workers spent the day weeding Stacks Bay.
"They invade our wetlands. They're a really robust, aggressive plant. What they do is they crowd out our native species and make actually the wetland a lot less diverse," says Michele Sadauskas, Oneida County AIS Coordinator.
Removing yellow iris is a slow process. It takes three hours of work just to properly map and control 20 feet of shoreline.
