ANTIGO - Dogs, cats and sometimes a gerbil seem to be the norm for a family pet. But there's a man in Antigo that has a different kind of animal that he cares for.

His name is Jim Draeger and he loves deer.

"I had a shooting preserve at one time, but I got rid of it because I couldn't stand shooting the deer," said Draeger.

He's owned the BP gas station on Hwy 45 just north of Antigo for about 25 years. He wanted to mix his love of deer with his gas station.

ANTIGO - Father Bob Obol made his way from a war torn country in Africa to Antigo. 

Obol grew up during a war and a dictatorship in Uganda, Africa in the '70s and '80s.

"There is a day that I've never forgotten," said Obol.

Obol remembers army trucks coming into his town and kidnapping children.

"The focus was just on surviving day-to-day," said Obol.

His key for survival during those times were the people around him.

"During the war, what kept us going was the sense of community," said Obol.

The church is where Obol said he found peace.

"In the community I grew up in the priests was the star of the town and the village," said Obol. 

Obol got a chance to shine in the church as an ordained minister in Uganda in 2001. 

Then he got a surprising opportunity to come to America in 2003.

ROTHSCHILD - The Rothschild Police Department arrested five women for prostitution earlier this week. 

The arrests were part of an undercover operation by the department. 

The five women are between ages 20 and 29 and were all prostituting themselves online. 

"They advertise for the Rothschild area, meaning that they provided services in the Rothschild area. But they weren't necessarily from the area and are also working in other locations," said Rothschild Police Department Detective Brad Johnson. 

These five bring the total number of arrests for prostitution to eight in Rothschild this year. The women were from as close as Marshfield and Antigo to as far away as Milwaukee.

LANGLADE COUNTY - When you think of fishing in the Northwoods you probably think of muskies and walleye, but Langlade County boasts nearly 400 miles of trout streams. Making sure those trout streams stay healthy takes a lot of work.

"I don't have to wear a collared shirt and tie to this job," said avid trout fisherman Dallas Moe.

Normally Moe does wear a tie to work a Wausau West High School math teacher. But each summer, he helps the DNR study those trout streams.

"They had an ad in the paper for a trout unlimited brushing crew, I was looking for a summer job and said 'sign me up'," said Moe.
