BOULDER JUNCTION - Hundreds of people celebrated in Boulder Junction Sunday as the town marked its 58th Annual Musky Jamboree as well as the Musky Day Fly-In Event.
"It's a huge day for us," said Boulder Junction Chamber of Commerce executive director Theresa Smith.
About 10,000 people filled the streets in Boulder Junction Sunday.
"We're about 1,000 people, just under. About half of them leave for the winter. We're a small town, but we can throw a big event," Smith said.
The 58th Annual Musky Jamboree kicked off with arts and craft, a car show, vendors galore and of course carvings of muskies.
"All the businesses, they come outside, the service organizations are here, the residents are here and everybody's just getting together, having a good time," said Smith. "The arts and crafts are a big draw, but it's just a big ol party."
A couple of blocks down the street at the Boulder Junction Airport, pilots flew in for a dedication for a man who put so much into the airport.
"A gentleman named Bob Payzer put this fly-in on 15 years ago," said EAA Chapter 75 President Steve Krueger. "It started just to develop activity at the airport and also contribute to festivities downtown."
Payzer passed away three and half years ago, but his contribution to the airport still lives strong.
"Bob was very instrumental in improving the airport with the grass cutting operation. He contributed financially to keep the airport going and he loved aviation and had a very good passion for aviation," Krueger said. "That's how this all started. So we're continuing that progress with Bob's vision."
With 81 pilots stopping by Sunday, some might say he's already accomplished a lot.
SHAWANO COUNTY - UPDATE 5:13 p.m.--Police say six people, including children, were taken to area hospitals after two sport utility vehicles carrying Boy Scouts crashed in Shawano County.
The accident happened Saturday morning on Highway 29 near Bonduel.
Police say one of the SUVs was towing a trailer with equipment. The driver of that vehicle went off the roadway then overcorrected and lost control. The second SUV hit the first, and both went off the road. The trailer flipped and the second SUV landed partially on top of the first.
Bonduel police Chief Todd Chaney tells the Green Bay Press Gazette that one of the injured, a troop leader, was airlifted to St. Vincent's Hospital in Green Bay with a head injury.
Chaney said he didn't think any of the injuries were life threatening.
MADISON - State attorneys have asked a federal judge to stay a ruling allowing people to vote without photo identification in November's election pending an appeal.
In Milwaukee this week, U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman issued a preliminary injunction allowing people who haven't been able to obtain IDs to vote in the Nov. 8 election if they sign an affidavit explaining why they couldn't get the identification.
