EAGLE RIVER - We all love watching little girls figure skate.
But the Eagle River Figure Skating Club President says it's not as easy as it looks.
Most of the girls at the club have been skating for more than four years.
But it takes a lot of time and money to get them to the next level.
"It's work. You fall, you get back up again and you do it over and over again," said Tina Yakel, Figure Skating Club president It takes lots of practice and lots of work and lots of commitment. It's not just pretty, fun stuff like it looks like."
The club president also thinks skating teaches the girls how to have a good work ethic.
"It creates a self-worth, it creates that more of a commitment, that you have to be there to do something," said Yakel. That if you really want to do it, you really have to work for it. and I think it instills that in them when they're young."
Girls at the Eagle River Figure Skating club host skating clinics.
Coaches and skaters from around the world have flown in to teach them.
Some of them have coached and competed in the Olympics.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
