The Northwoods of Wisconsin: An Outdoorsman’s Paradise

By Jake Porter & Vaughn Lowery

There is no better place in the United States to experience as many snow and cold-weather activities in one day as there is in the Northwoods region of Wisconsin. The two larger towns, Cable and Hayward, which are located in the far north of the state, act as home bases for tourists to Wisconsin. Hayward is a small, quaint town in Sawyer County, Wisconsin. It is characterized by its gently rolling hills, while Cable is just 15 minutes away. Aside from being known for it emphasis on outdoor activities, Cable is also renowned for being the starting point of the American Birkebeiner cross-country skiing race. There are also nationally renowned restaurants within a short 30 minute drive. Both locations offer an opportunity to escape from the stress of congested metropolitan cities and relax in the welcoming environment that both towns offer.

Traveling from the west coast, the north of Wisconsin is a dramatic change of pace from the bustling vibes of the many developed metropolitan cities. It is also the top destination for most snow-related adventure spots. The food and travel businesses in the area, the top two largest economies in the northern Wisconsin, are thriving and are welcoming to new small-businesses. With a well-developed and diverse school system in the surrounding communities, both towns are extremely capable of hosting both tourists and accommodating people intending to move to the region.

With their proximity to the great woods of the Chequamegan National Forest and the sparkling waters of Lake Owen and Namakagon, the recreational activities are abundant. Activities range from cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, ice fishing, and winter fat biking. Cable is an epicenter for skiers, offering wonderfully groomed trails traversing the relatively flat landscape. At the start of the Birkebeiner trail in Cable, there is a newly built rest area and event center which offers a wide range of amenities including a source of heat in the wintertime. Snowmobiling is a crucial activity for the adventure-seeking traveler. It is also a staple for most of the locals in the area. In addition, ice fishing is a classic wintertime sport and can be done on most frozen lakes in the area. Fat Bike riding and snowshoeing can be done by most any able-bodied traveler. Bikes and snowshoes can be picked up at Howl Adventure Center, while snowmobiles can be rented from Hayward Power Sports.

As for the less adventurous travelers, downtown Hayward, which was named one of five Hallmark-worthy small towns in Wisconsin, is easy to explore. The downtown includes small boutiques and coffee/pastry shops which line the beautiful, quiet streets. Meet the artists at local art shops such as Art Beat and Nordic Northwoods, who specialize in fun, artsy gifts and souvenirs. Hayward Mercantile is a delightful place as well, filled with Wisconsin-made goods, while Ronnings, just a few doors down provides everything from moccasins to sweatshirts. Just 10 minutes away, Glassy Ladies Art Studio provides a fun environment to get your creative juices flowing while you learn glass fusing, bead making, metal-smithing, and how to work with stained glass.

After a long day in the snow, there is nothing better than a hot meal at lunch or at the end of the day. Lucky for you, there are countless, award winning, restaurants within close proximity. Tamarack Farms Winery is not only the number one winery in the area, but also provides small sandwiches and artisan pizza. The Old Southern Smokehouse, a creation of the award winning BBQ chef Dave Anderson, is the epitemy of a BBQ experience. Their menu consists of quality meats, fresh produce, and award winning sauces. The Landing, situated on the Chippewa Flowage is an amazing place known for its nationally renowned fish fry and its liquor bar. The owners, Chris and Elsie Lee are extraordinary people and are extremely hospitable. Located in Cable, The Brick House Cafe is a quaint place featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-in, and Dives with Guy Fieri. Serving sandwiches and fresh salads, they are known for their locally sourced meats and vegetables. It even occupies one of the oldest buildings in Cable, dating back to the 1800s!

Finally, The Rookery exhibits casual gourmet dining at its finest. The Rookery’s ever-changing menu features fresh fish specials and their famous bison steak. Here you will find some of the best vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options you’ll find anywhere in the northern Wisconsin communities. And what’s Wisconsin without cheese? Most of the restaurants and dives nestled in the towns serve a wide range of cheeses and fried cheese curds which are almost like a staple in the state. With all of these amazing options for food in the area, your taste buds are in for a real treat!

Not only is there a multitude of thrilling activities interspersed amongst the trails, forest, and lakes surrounding the area, there are also countless establishments in which to shop and also create art. Both communities are extremely sustainable, and are excitedly welcoming tourists and thrill-seekers alike. The spirit of the towns are quite endearing. The eager traveler definitely has a chance to fully experience what the area has to offer in a 5 day to a week span. Can you imagine visiting a region for the first time and immediately feeling at home and being welcomed by the locals? Can you imagine having access to incredible activities and nationally recognized eateries? Then the sister towns of Cable and Hayward should be at the top of your list of future travels. They are communities that are welcoming and make you feel at home, no matter your background, ethnicity, or culture.

Osbourne Remodels a Couple’s Home Using Her Own Money, Expertise & Over-The-Top Personality

 
Sneak Peek Here: https://youtu.be/YWXAT1MhEbU

 

We all love Sharon Osbourne for her charming, cheeky and opinionated personality, but guess what?! She’s also an experienced house flipper! Sharon has flipped dozens of homes – big and small – and made millions selling to celebrities. Premiering Friday, October 6th at 10pm ET/PT, viewers will see an entirely new side of the television host and media personality on an original special, “Sharon Flipping Osbourne.”

 
On the one-hour special, Sharon makes a deal with a couple in Los Angeles who were looking to sell their home but had no idea who would be knocking on their door to help! She offers to put her own money into the mix to update the house, but this means she’s in charge: from hiring the contractors, decorating with décor from her own warehouse to working with her favorite realtor. In the end, if they get an offer that works, she splits the profits with the seller…it’s flippin’ awesome! 

 
“What most people don’t know about me is that I flip houses, and I’m damn good at it,” comments Osbourne, who also serves as an Executive Producer along with her son, Jack Osbourne. “Most people don’t know how to get their max price, but I do because I’m Sharon F$&:@ing Osbourne.”

Meanwhile, Kenya who focuses on growing her beauty empire, is over the moon after a whirlwind romance led to marrying the man of her dreams.

Marvel Announces Exclusive Agreement With Writer Ed Brisson

Marvel Announces Exclusive Agreement With Writer Ed BrissonEd Brisson joins the House of Ideas writing Old Man Logan, Iron Fist and more!                                                                                            

New York, NY—August 21, 2017—Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce that writer Ed Brisson will bring his powerhouse storytelling and creative flair to Marvel in an exclusive agreement. Brisson, who has made his mark with engaging work across the comic industry, is currently writing acclaimed Marvel books Iron Fist and Old Man Logan. He will continue to write exclusively for Marvel in this new agreement.

“I’ve been a huge Marvel fan since I was a kid. I grew up with stacks of Spider-Man, Punisher, Daredevil, Ghost Rider and X-Men littering my bedroom floor. The comics would be in tatters because I would read them repeatedly, often having to tape the covers back on,” said Brisson. “I remember being on vacation when Kraven’s Last Hunt was coming out and begging my mom to drive me a half hour to the closest town with a convenience store so that I wouldn’t miss out on the latest issue. It’s still surreal to me that I’m currently writing some of those characters that I grew up reading. I don’t know that I’ll ever get over that feeling. I hope that I don’t.”

“Right now, I’m happy to keep on doing what I’ve been doing,” he added. “I’ve been having a blast writing Iron Fist. He’s one of my favourite characters in the Marvel Universe and I think that Mike Perkins and I have been doing some pretty interesting stuff with him, adding things to his mythology that will hopefully be felt for years to come.”

“Ed has many strengths as a writer,” said senior editor Mark Paniccia. “Dialogue. Pacing. Mood. He’s an editor’s dream.”

This fall, Brisson will continue bringing his creative talent to the Marvel Universe with the Marvel Legacy stories of CABLE: NEWER MUTANTS and OLD MAN LOGAN: THE SCARLET SAMURAI.

“We’re taking Logan back to face off against one of his more classic foes: The Hand,” Brisson teased. “To my mind, The Hand’s never really been much of a serious threat for Logan in the past as he has a tendency to cut through them like butter. But, under the guidance of Gorgon and the mysterious Scarlet Samurai, there’s a plan to improve The Hand, to make them deadlier so that they’re no longer simply cannon fodder for the Marvel U. Speaking of Gorgon and Scarlet Samurai: Gorgon and Logan have gone head to head on several occasions and Gorgon is desperate the finally take Logan down. The Scarlet Samurai, however, is a new player in the game. What she wants with Logan is something that we’re going to slowly reveal over the arc.”

“Like any great writer—like Lemire before him—Ed effortlessly reminds the reader Logan’s someone who’s been through a lot of pain…that some decisions don’t come easy,” said Paniccia. “This is a character you need to sympathize with or it’s just another super hero book.”

Exclusively at Marvel, Brisson is prepared to bring his creativity to the heroic, well-known characters of the Marvel Universe.

“Everyone at Marvel has been great to work with,” said Brisson. “They seem to really understand who I am as a writer and have been playing to that, while also pushing me to grow as a writer. It’s been just over a year since I started writing for Marvel on a regular basis and I feel that I’ve learned more from my collaborators and editors in that short time than I have in the years leading up to it. It’s truly been an incredible experience.”
