Kids capitalize on Hodag Country FestSubmitted: 07/12/2013

RHINELANDER - Hodag Country Fest sounds good but after camping for days, you may not smell good.

But Rhinelander High Schoolers can get you smelling fresh again.

They open the school's showering facilities to campers at Hodag Fest.

They also offer an all-you-can-eat hot breakfast.

"The best thing is the showers are not timed. They're clean, and spacious, and we have air conditioning if you want to get in from the heat outside. Breakfast is fresh and delicious," Rhinelander High School teacher Allie Johnson says.

This is the high school's seventh year of hosting the Hodag Breakfast and Shower.

The money raised benefits two organizations at the high school.

"We have two student groups that are really involved in this. The Student Council and the FCCLA. And they will be using that money for scholarships for leadership camps and activities, and for different activities around the school to promote the Hodags and school spirit," says Johnson.

They raised about 3,000 dollars last year.

You can shower or get breakfast Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 12pm.

Showers and breakfast cost 5 dollars each.

NORTHERN WISCONSIN - Deer councils in Northern Wisconsin want to see more deer. Harsh winters have decreased local deer population and harvest levels. Leaders in the Northwoods hope local changes with deer population management goals will help.

A 2012 state deer report set up local deer advisory councils. They now recommend whether to increase, maintain, or decrease deer population.

The Natural Resources Board voted and approved council plans for deer populations throughout the entire state. For northern Wisconsin counties, that means plans to increase the population.

"The biggest tool we have to manage deer populations is to increase or decrease the number of antlerless deer that are taken by hunters," said Antigo's DNR Area Wildlife Supervisor Chuck McCullough. "If we want the population to grow, we take fewer antlerless deer by hunting."

We caught up with a Tomahawk woman who lost her house in a fire and is battling cancer. Some Tomahawk kids told us how she's able to keep a smile on her face and bring cheer to others.

"She's a very strong woman. She's very cheerful. Despite all of her hardships she still can smile. She still has a loving heart," said 18-year-old Umran Abdul Majeed.
