One family celebrated Father's Day by shooting sporting clays in Harshaw
HARSHAW - Sporting clays isn't as easy as it looks.

"They're crossing in front of you, they start out lower and go higher, they go straight up," said Bernie Dart, President of Harshaw Sports Club.

But when you do it as a family, it's a lot more fun.

"We'll do anything from watching football games in the fall to this kind of thing, shooting," said Bernie's son-in-law, Curt Krouze.

No matter what they do, they just enjoy being together.

"Especially when you get to be an old guy like me, you enjoy having a daughter, son-in-law, his son, it's great," said Dart.

The club was open on Sunday for people to celebrate Father's Day and hopefully make it a tradition.

"It's really fun to spend time with your son," said Krouze.

"You get some bonding time out in the woods and the added satisfaction of watching things blow up," said Curt's son, Derek Krouze.

Bernie's daughter, Julie also joined in on the fun.

"She has a saying, 'it's just fun breaking stuff'," said Dart.

She started shooting about 10 years ago.

"I decided it'd be kind of fun to learn to shoot a gun, I never really knew how and he taught me," said his daughter, Julie Jrouze.

Julie's the only girl in the family, which created a special bond with her and her dad.

"Fathers and sons have a special relationship but it's kind of cool to be doing something that he likes to do," said Julie.

And add in plenty of family friends and a few rain drops and you have the perfect day.

"Even with bad weather, spending time with good people always makes it worth it," said Derek.

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.
