Packers to play 3 games on Newswatch 12Submitted: 04/18/2013
GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers' 93rd NFL regular-season schedule highlighted by four prime-time games (subject to flexible scheduling) and a Thanksgiving contest at Detroit was released this evening by the National Football League.

Three of those prime-time battles can be seen on Newswatch 12. On October 27, the Packers face the Vikings in the Twin Cities. Another Sunday night road test is at the New York Giants on November 17. And Green Bay will host Atlanta December 8. The Giants and Falcons games however are subject to flexible scheduling and could change.


Green Bay's schedule includes six games against 2012 playoff teams, with three of those contests (Atlanta, Minnesota, Washington) at Lambeau Field and three on the road (Cincinnati, Minnesota, San Francisco). The Packers will travel to play both of the teams that played in Super Bowl XLVII (Baltimore and San Francisco).

The Packers have two prime-time contests at home (vs. Chicago on Monday Night Football in Week 9 and against Atlanta on Sunday night in Week 14) and two on the road (Sunday night contests at Minnesota in Week 8 and at the N.Y. Giants in Week 11). Green Bay plays at Detroit on Thanksgiving for the fourth time in the past seven seasons (also 2007, 2009 and 2011).

Green Bay opens the regular season vs. the 49ers for the second straight year and at San Francisco for the first time in franchise history. It marks only the second time under Head Coach Mike McCarthy that the Packers will open their season away from Lambeau Field (also 2010 at Philadelphia).

The Packers' bye arrives in Week 4, the earliest their open date has come on the schedule since they had a Week 4 bye in 1999.

For the first time since entering the National Football League in 1921, Green Bay does not have back-to-back road games on its schedule.

The Packers' lone NFC North contest in the final month of the season comes in Week 17 at Chicago, the second time under McCarthy (also 2006) that Green Bay has closed out the regular season at Soldier Field.

Dates and times for Green Bay's preseason games have also been finalized.

MERRILL - Members of a Northwoods union chapter gathered unique inspiration for a fundraiser - The Beatles.

Merrill-area Local 6 members gathered Wednesday on the Wisconsin flowage to raise money for groups in need of assistance. The union leaders organized boat rides, raffles, barbecues, and contests. The inspiration for the fundraiser came, in part, from the 1965 Beatles single Help!

"I found out it was the anniversary of the 'Help!' release from The Beatles record, and I decided, let's help our community," said Local 6 Vice President Valerie Nelson. "Our membership is very passionate about certain organizations within our community. One being the Lincoln County Humane Society, the local food pantry, and the American Cancer Society."

Gardens need some help with large temperature swings in summerSubmitted: 07/23/2014

RHINELANDER - Northwoods heat the past few days forced plants to endure different weather, but you don't need to do extra gardening just because it's hot.

Experts at Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander say plants can manage the heat just fine. On hot, sunny days, many plants will wilt, but that doesn't mean they need more water.

"If the soil is moist on a hot day, I wouldn't water more. That's probably more harm. The plant can only take up so much moisture at a time, so I would just hold off on watering," says Sue Hanson, Hanson's Garden Village Co-Owner.

Antigo Mayor vetoes ambulance purchase, wants to see city buy from local companySubmitted: 07/23/2014

Play Video

ANTIGO - The Antigo City Council will vote again to decide from which company they'll buy the city's newest ambulance.

The city council voted earlier this month to buy the cheapest ambulance.

Antigo's mayor vetoed that because he thinks buying a local ambulance is a better decision.

The Antigo City Council voted earlier in July to buy an ambulance from a company based out of Ohio.

The ambulance from Ohio was $66 cheaper than the bid from a company in Antigo, but the local ambulance would come with an extra year's warranty.

Antigo's mayor felt it was worth it to spend a little extra, that's why he vetoed the council's decision.

Hoggie Doggies celebrates National Hot Dog DaySubmitted: 07/23/2014

WOODRUFF - Americans will eat about 7 billion hot dogs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Wednesday, millions of Americans celebrated National Hot Dog day. That was the case in the Northwoods.

Hoggie Doggies Snack Shack is a staple in Woodruff. Their All-American favorite is the Chicago Style Dog.

The owner Judy Rossi has been there for 12 years and says they go through a lot of dogs.

"Last season we went through almost 17,000 hot dogs. This year we're on track for about 18,000," says Rossi. "Statistically we go through about 8 tons of potatoes in a season, which is close to 16,000 pounds for our homemade french fries. Those are some big numbers for this little place."

Northwoods composite panels could mean improvements for home foundations Submitted: 07/23/2014

EAGLE RIVER - A new type of foundation could give you a better way to build a home, and the idea for the improvement starts right here in the Northwoods.

Composite Panel Systems in Eagle River builds composite panels for home foundations. Composite means anything made of two or more materials, which includes fiberglass in this case. The company describes the EPITOME Quality Foundation Wall as a revolutionary composite building solution for residential foundations.

The company makes them off site, and then they put them together on location. Composite Panel Systems' Scott Weber says that means a shorter build time compared to concrete foundations.

RHINELANDER - You could find EPA crews cleaning chemicals out of a building in Rhinelander Wednesday.

It's been a year and a half since the city decided something needed to be done about the deteriorating Lindey Cleaners.

You might not notice much change on the outside of Lindey Cleaners, but inside crews from the Environmental Protection Agency were hard at work.

The building on Stevens Street has been empty since 2009. EPA workers think 100 to 150 different chemicals were inside the building.
