RHINELANDER - Artists found out who won the Northern National Art Competition Tuesday night.
Artists from across the country submitted artwork to the art competition held at Nicolet College in Rhinelander this year.
Organizers expect about 200 people at the reception.
Some of the artists that submitted work will be at Nicolet.
The artists competed for $8,500 in prize money.
The entries come from all over the country, but there is art from the Northwoods on display.
Artists from Rhinelander, Antigo and Lake Tomahawk have work in the show.
"This year 35 different states are represented here. We had 266 entries and the judge has a really difficult job because that was 512 images and she has to select only 80 or 90 to fit in our space," says the Art Gallery Director, Katy Ralph.
This is the 27th year the Nicolet Art Gallery has hosted the competition.
The judge has to go through all the art twice to decide on the winners.
"She decides on which ones work together and which ones she thinks will be the most interesting pieces on our walls after that she comes here and then she spent three hours here yesterday looking at all the art to decide on the awards," says Ralph.
If you didn't make it to the reception, you can still see the art.
RHINELANDER - Looking back on his 28 years as airport director, Joe Brauer says he has a lot to be proud of.
"When we got the disabled passenger lift, the non-motorized one, we were very, very proud of that," said Brauer, who's worked as the airport director for 28 years. He's also been in the airline business for 20 years.
Now, the longtime Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport director will be passing things off to a familiar face.
MADISON - The Wisconsin Senate has unanimously approved an $80 million juvenile justice overhaul plan that would close the troubled Lincoln Hills prison by 2021 and replace it with smaller regional facilities.
The Senate voted without any debate Tuesday to pass the plan, which largely mirrors what the Assembly unanimously approved last month.
