MANITOWISH WATERS - Wisconsin can be known for its beer brewing history.
But to one Northwoods organization, it's the combination of beer and wine that puts it on the map.
The Discovery Center in Manitowish Waters will host "Wine in the Woods" and "Beer by the Bog" Saturday.
People can sip spirits and listen to live music.
The event helps the center raise money for summer programs.
Organizers like Sarah Johnson hope they can help connect others to the Northwoods.
"This beautiful area that we all love and really kind of touches them in a different way and allows them to appreciate the area in a different way," Johnson said. "Then it can maybe help them support the area in a different way."
Wine and beer will be auctioned off.
The selection includes everything from local spirits to exotic European wines.
There will also be pizza from local restaurants.
"It's a wonderful casual evening, it's a great event, it's a great place to get out to enjoy and hopefully people get to know a bit more about the Discovery Center when they are here," Johnson said.
RHINELANDER - If you paid attention to the Rhinelander Library's Facebook page Monday night, you would've seen a strange sight. Dozens of furry friends had a sleepover party at the library.
Kids dropped off their favorite stuffed animals, and could then watch what the animals were getting up to over Facebook. Library staff had plenty of activities for the animals including story time, snack time, and play time.
RHINELANDER - A Minocqua man pleaded no contest Tuesday to a charge related to a child sexual assault case dating back nearly two years. Nathan Warbalow, 26, reached a plea deal with Oneida County prosecutors that will help him avoid a longer prison sentence and eliminated the need for a jury trial, set for this week.
Warbalow's victims, who were under the age of 13, told police he made a game of trying to pull his pants down in 2016. One victim told police Warbalow promised her a Popsicle if she touched his private parts.
RHINELANDER - Voting polls opened for the Wisconsin Supreme Court Primary Election Tuesday.
However, election officials had mixed feelings about the number of voters showing up.
Election Official Patty Fitzpatrick worked at the Oneida County Department of Aging voting location. She saw a low number of voters, but she doesn't think that's because of weather.
"A lot of people view the election for judges as kind of a snooze, which is unfortunate because it really is important, because it's the judges who are upholding the law and making the law," said Fitzpatrick.
