RHINELANDER - Rhinelander may be a small town, but its mock trial team can argue with the biggest and best.
The team competed in nationals last week.
They flew to Indianapolis for the competition.
Amber Sheth has also been in plays and went to conference for tennis this year, but this trip was a whole new level of performance.
"Nationals was one of the most amazing competitions I've ever participated in," she said. "Aside from being able to meet different people from all over the U.S., and the world, it was just really fun performing. I felt that as a team, we had our best performance at nationals."
Amber and her teammate Lydia O'Brien are the only juniors on the team.
Their five other teammates are seniors.
That means they're almost starting from scratch next year, but Lydia isn't worried.
"We saw how good we were on a national level, so that was really cool," she said. "I would love to go back to nationals next year. I think the team can do it, but we have to work hard. We need to be a team."
The team placed 24th out of 48 teams from across the country.
ST. GERMAIN - The last day of Pig in the Pines wrapped up Saturday. People were able to watch the rib eating contest in the afternoon.
Newswatch 12 got to help judge ribs from this year's four rib vendors. One of the big events happened on the main stage Saturday evening.
"We have entertainment all day long," said St. Germain Chamber President Bruce Weber. "We have the Wise Guys on our main stage. We have Laura Ernst on the aerial platform here. She also does juggling. On our major stage, we have One Ping Only, and we also have Molly Hatchet, our lead act tonight."
The Pig in the Pines volunteers had another big announcement to make. The event will be sticking around next year with some changes.
WISCONSIN - Anyone who loves hunting and fishing will need to apply for a license. The deadline for some hunting and fishing licenses is August 1st at 11:59pm.
Hunters, trappers and spearers can go on the DNR website to apply.
"This is the time of year where not a lot of people are thinking about hunting, but that August 1st date is that date for applying for a bobcat, fisher or otter tag, sharp tag grouse, or sturgeon spearing or fall turkey," said DNR Warden Supervisor David Walz.
People may not be thinking about hunting during the summer. DNR workers say the process is very easy for people to apply.
ONEIDA COUNTY - Invasive species specialists work hard to protect our environment, but a few lakes in Oneida County aren't doing as well as experts would like.
Aquatic experts have found invasive species in four new Oneida County lakes this summer. Those discoveries are not great signs for the health of the environment, but the numbers also aren't as bad as years ago, when specialists might have found acres of an invasive species in some lakes. The new discoveries, though, are still troubling.
