NORTHWOODS - The two incumbents running for statewide office held onto their seats Tuesday night.

Tony Evers claimed another term as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, while Pat Roggensack will be back for ten more years on the state Supreme Court.

Locally, Merrill attorney Rob Russell appeared to win a close race versus incumbent John Yackel for Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge.

Each of the three local general revenue school referenda were quite close.

As of late Tuesday night, Phillips denied a referendum by just seven votes, while Wabeno Area also voted down more money.

Elcho, meanwhile, approved $400,000 per year in additional spending.

EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River hosted its 36th annual Cranberry Fest during October's first weekend.

Organizers say the weather this year brought in many more visitors.

"People come to this whether there's good weather of bad weather," said Executive Director of the Eagle River Chamber Kim Emerson. "And with this year being great weather, we had above-average crowds and it was just spectacular. We're so happy about that."

By 3 p.m. Saturday, the World's Largest Cranberry Cheesecake had already been devoured. Sales of slices go towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin. 

Organizers said they also almost sold out of cranberries, but they said they would still have more to sell on Sunday.

TOWN OF NEWBOLD - Dreams of a world-class disc golf course and recreation area could soon become reality.  On September 26, people in the Town of Newbold voted to buy about 18 acres of land currently owned by Oneida County.

The land, about a half mile off Highway 47 along Ole Lake Road, was the site of an old landfill that the DNR closed in July 1988. The site has been empty ever since.

Buying the land would essentially double the space Newbold already owns for its planned recreation area.
