MINOCQUA - Plenty of fun things can happen at a beerfest in the Northwoods.

But you probably wouldn't plan on going there to find your future spouse.

Well that's what happened to Paul Field and Liz Brodek at the Lac Du Flambaeu Brewfest.

They met last year while Field was working at the event. The two of them still can't believe how they met.

"It's crazy, completely unexpected," Brodek said.

"It happened early in the beer fest which i think is important," Field said.

This year the couple celebrates their anniversary at the festival. The band even honored the couple.

Looking back, Field says he didn't notice Brodek at first.

"The second she said she wanted something hoppier, i started paying attention to who I was talking to," Field said. "At a beer fest you are just pouring a lot beers and once I actually took a look and saw her it was love at first sight."

The couple is planning to get married next August.

Its long arms jut into the water, sending electrical pulses into the lake.

Under a nearly-full moon on a warm July night, it motors across Sparkling Lake in Vilas County.

"We can actually sneak up on them in the evenings, when it's dark out," says Dr. Noah Lottig, who's driving the boat. "They're up there, they don't see us coming, and we can sneak up on them."

ONEIDA COUNTY - Invasive species specialists work hard to protect our lakes, but a few areas in Oneida County aren't doing as well as they'd like.

Aquatic experts have found invasive species in four new Oneida County lakes this summer. It's not a great sign, but it also isn't like years ago when someone might find acres of an invasive. However, it's still an issue.
