Northland Pines' Sergent signs with UW-Superior
EAGLE RIVER - Northland Pines' Amanda Sergent will go on to play collegiate hockey this fall.

Wednesday afternoon she made the plans official by signing with UW-Superior.


The senior forward won all-state awards this year and was a standout for the Eagles.

She told Newswatch 12 she's a little nervous about the big move, but she's looking forward to the challenge.

"I'm super excited but also very nervous at the same time because I know that it's going to be a higher level of playing and I don't really know what to expect," Sargent said. "I'm used to playing all the, time and I know I'm going to be starting from the bottom when I get there, so I'll have to work my way back up."

Sergent is ready for that challenge thanks to the advice she got from her coaches at Northland Pines.

"Coaches telling me to work my hardest and always pushing me to my limit because they know my limit. They made sure I do what I can do," said Sergent.

She chose UW-Superior for many different reasons, one of them being the feel of the campus.

"The campus is super small and it's what I'm used to," she said. "I'm not used to something that's super big. It was a really nice campus, and they have really nice facilities and I'm just super excited to go there."

Sergent is currently playing for a travel hockey team here in the Northwoods and will be getting a summer workout plan from her new coaches soon.

Sergent plans to study biology starting this fall in hopes of becoming a physician's assistant.

WAUSAU - You'd never guess it seeing the rows of stocked shelves and fresh paint, but Kevin Korpela's Downtown Grocery store in Wausau once stood as four fire-damaged walls with no roof.

"We had a home to go to, it just wasn't ready yet," Korpela said.

Tuesday morning, Korpela and his wife, Megan Curtes Korpela, showed Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch around their new digs in its old location nearly two years after fire destroyed the grocery on North Third Street.  A teenager tossed a lit cigarette in a dumpster behind the building in September 2015, severely damaging the building, which also housed Evolve Fitness and Sweets on Third.

THREE LAKES - Wisconsin grows nearly two thirds of the nation's cranberries. This year alone, the USDA predicts that the state will produce 5.6 million barrels. James Lake Farms in Three Lakes will produce 25 thousand of those barrels. They're getting ready for the harvest season now. 

President of James Lake Farms Inc. John Stauner loves going to work because his office is 124 acres of cranberry marsh.

He can walk through the windy fields. Or take in the stellar view of the water. 

The marsh sits next to Thunder Lake in Oneida County. When harvest season comes around, that water is used to flood the fields.
