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.

ELCHO - If you pass through Elcho, you can't miss the hundreds of Christmas lights as you drive down Highway 45.

The Elcho Christmas staple is all thanks to a couple who spends weeks setting up the display, after they spend most of their time saving lives.

Carl Bloechl and Lissa Iwanoski are both EMTs. Carl is also a R.N. in Antigo.

For four years now, the couple sets up decorations at an office building off of Highway 45 in Elcho.

It takes a couple of weeks and they use their time in between shifts to get the job done.

"We just hope we don't get called. Sometimes we do get called and we just drop it all and leave it out here and go," said Bloechl.

The cold winter weather usually slows down the set up, but this year's warmer weather allowed the couple to enjoy the visitors earlier.

"It makes me feel good inside that they enjoy it too, because it is work," said Iwanowski.

The display will be on until the beginning of next year.

The lights stay on from around 4:00 p.m. through 11:00 p.m.
