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.
RHINELANDER - It costs nearly $240,000 to run Rhinelander's homeless shelter every year.
Frederick Place got an extra boost this month to help cover those costs with two grants totaling $8,000.
"With our just shy of $240,000 annual operating budget, we typically only get $40,000 from the state and federal government. So we are raising that $200,000 every single year," said NATH Executive Director Tammy Modic.
IRMA - Until Thursday, we never got an inside look at Lincoln Hills School and Youth Prison. We have heard from Lincoln Hills line staff and the Department of Corrections, but never were able to see the facility.
Thursday the DOC held a guided media tour of the school and living units. Newswatch12's Rose McBride has been following the stories that come out of Lincoln Hills for months now, and she went on that media tour.
