EAGLE RIVER - What happens when you put tv people in a canoe? They get very competitive!
The Callie Rohr Memorial Race had a media division in addition to the pros.
Newswatch 12 was proud to have 8 teams on the water and we joined other local tv and radio stations in the paddle for a cure.
It was a 3 mile race to the finish- some of us paddled faster than others! Our own Lex Gray won the race last year, so everyone hoping Newswatch 12 could defend our title. And I'm proud to say... we did! Check out the winning team.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
