Everyone likes their steak cut a little different, and you just can’t get that with a precut showcase steak.” Prime Choice grinds its own ground chuck and fresh-ground sirloin. “All of our ground beef is made fresh on the premises, not bought from another processor. We feel that our fresh-ground products makes for great grilling, especially our famous bacon burger, which has bacon blended in for a unique flavor,” noted Behrens. “We also have several additional products available, including restaurantquality stuffed chicken breasts, our very own cranberry bacon burger, custom-seasoned pulled pork and our newest bratwurst, the bacon and cheddar brat,” said Behrens.

Recently, the Small Business Institute/Small Business Administration/UW System conducted anonymous independent surveys of pizza customers of the 11 major pizza restaurants in the Eagle River area. The survey considered quality of food, cleanliness, service and atmosphere. Alexander’s Family Pizza was rated #1! “Out of 11 restaurants mentioned — Alexander’s was ranked number 1,” an independent was second, and a national chain was third, “both far behind in customer choice.” Alexander’s was found to “offer a quality product at a reasonable price. According to the survey, quality has proven to be of more importance to the customer. Alexander’s has excellent pizza. It uses the highest quality ingredients.” Alexander’s Family Pizza wishes to thank all the many people who participated in the surveys. We truly appreciate the fact that our long-term goal of wanting to be known for quality pizza has been realized.

A tent will feature Young at Art, where children are welcome to display and sell their handmade arts and crafts. A silent auction will offer donated items from Artarama exhibitors at reduced prices, with all proceeds going toward scholarships and artist-in-residence programs.

Lake Forest Golf Club in Eagle River has a rich tradition of providing challenging holes and friendly service. In addition

to the golf course and lakefront clubhouse, Lake Forest offers a health and fitness center that is open to the public.

Visit Lake Forest ‘fore’ golf tradition Lake Forest Golf Club has a rich tradition of providing challenging holes, friendly service and knowledgeable golf professionals to vacationers and local residents. The beautiful North Woods scenery of the historical course makes Lake Forest Golf Club a wonderful place to enhance your summer fun. “You can come by land or by sea,” golf pro Rick “Pepper” Freund said, referring to the course’s location on the Chain of Lakes. The course can be accessed by boat on the channel between Voyageur and Eagle lakes. Guests are welcome to stop by for a game of golf or enjoy food and drinks at the clubhouse. The romantic history of golf at Lake Forest dates back more than 95 years. In 1917, a small group of wealthy “regulars” selected a wooded and hilly farm site with frontage on two lakes and established what was called Eagle Waters Golf Club. They carved a nine-hole golf course from the wooded hills and built a clubhouse. Eagle Waters Golf Club was private and catered to the elite group of cottage owners in the Everett Colony between Catfish and Cranberry lakes. Through the years, the golf

club has entertained the rich and famous. On some days, as many as 100 caddies served the club and its members. While the rest of the country struggled through the Great Depression, the driveways of local estates sported Fleetwoods, Rolls Royces and Cords. Bets of $1,000 per hole were not unusual. Many famous golfers played the course — Walter Hogan, Ollie Meyers and José Hurado, the South American golf champion. In the 1950s, President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his brother, Milton, also were frequent visitors. When Jim Mason purchased Eagle Waters Golf Club in 1963, he built the first four units of Lake Forest Resort. Today, Lake Forest Resort offers golf, tennis, a fitness center and nature trails to guests and the public. The nine-hole golf course winds through the hilly greens and provides tee times from 7 a.m. daily until 6 p.m. This fully irrigated, par36 golf course is 3,000 yards long. Amenities at the golf course include a clubhouse, a fully equipped pro shop, practice green, gas carts and push carts, rental

clubs, and yearly and corporate memberships. Freund offers individual lessons. There also are weekly specials on merchandise at the pro shop. Seniors can receive discounted greens fees seven days a week. Other specials include Sweetheart days Saturdays and Sundays, when couples can play for $24 after 2 p.m. Lake Forest also offers individual 10-play passes. The pass costs $140 for 10 nine-hole rounds and the 11th game is free. The clubhouse serves a full menu of sandwiches, brats and burgers, starting at 11 a.m. Deck and dance parties are held every Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m., featuring live entertainment, weather permitting. The bartenders also can make your favorite drinks, including their famous Bloody Marys. Food and beverage must be ordered at the bar, but guests are welcome to sit at the tables outside or in the clubhouse. If golfers would like more information about golfing at Lake Forest, Freund can be reached at (715) 479-4211. In addition to the golf course, Lake Forest Recreation Area has a health and fitness center which is open to the public. Memberships

are available at the fitness center, and combination memberships for fitness and unlimited golf also are available. The fitness center has an indoor pool, spa, sauna, complete fitness room, locker rooms and a beverage bar. Masseuse and other services are available. For more information on Lake Forest Health and Fitness Center, call 479-3251. Lake Forest is located three miles east of Eagle River off Highway 70. Turn left onto Rangeline Road and follow the signs.

The North Woods scenery of historic Lake Forest Golf Club makes the course a wonderful place to enhance summer fun in Eagle River.

Several canoe and kayak river trips, designed for the whole family, are offered by Rohr’s Wilderness Tours in Conover.

Paddlers also may stay at Rohr’s scenic campground or in the luxury vacation rental home.

Exciting river adventures at Rohr’s Wilderness Tours Rohr’s Wilderness Tours, located on the Wisconsin River in Conover, offers canoe, kayak and inflatable kayak raft trips on the scenic Headwaters of the Wisconsin River and other rivers in the area. The Headwaters is a unique section of the mighty Wisconsin River, which flows 434 miles through Wisconsin to the Mississippi River. Small and scenic, this section of the river is not threatening, but with many turns and obstacles to avoid, it is suited for all levels of canoes and kayakers. Rohr’s offers canoe rentals, shuttle service, complete outfitting, canoe instruction, equipment sales, camping at the small campground and lodging at the luxury cabin. Guests have access to trails for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Canoe and kayak trips are available every day, ranging from an hour to several days. The two- and three- to four-hour trips are the most popular with paddlers. Complete outfitting is available for those who may need gear for their overnight trips. Visitors may experience the excitement of half- and

full-day guided whitewater raft trips in fun and safe inflatable kayaks. The trip can become a fishing trip as well. The scenic and quiet campground has state park ambiance with facilities including a deluxe shower house, flush toilets and dump station. Acres of wild blueberries and raspberries grow during berry season, and guests on the property are welcome to pick them. North Woods berries can be the perfect addition to a breakfast. Rohr’s offers walk-in river sites, spacious wooded tent sites and large and beautiful water/electric sites with both 20- and 30-amp service complete with five pull-through electric sites. Seasonal campers are welcome and camping equipment is available for rent if needed. For the tourist who prefers the comforts of home, Rohr’s offers a luxury vacation rental house. The house has four bedrooms, two and two-and-one-half baths, two complete kitchens, dining rooms, and a living room with cathedral ceiling and two gas fireplaces. With a nice, rustic, knotty-pine interior, ceiling fans, hot-water heat and beautiful scenery, it’s a com-

fortable place to enjoy the North Woods. The Rohrs also sponsor the Callie Rohr Memorial Canoe & Kayak Race in memory of their daughter, who lost her life to brain cancer. The proceeds fund research in children’s brain cancer. Again this year, the Rohrs will host an open mic select Saturdays. The large pavilion complete with stage, professional sound system and lights creates a unique ambiance in the 40acre woods. Jeff Rohr himself is an accomplished singer/songwriter with three compact

discs to his credit. The music starts at 7 p.m., but all are welcome to come early and join the Rohrs in a pre-party cookout. Visitors may take something to throw on the grill over the party pit to experience food cooked a over an open fire. Coolers will not be allowed as beer and pop will be available on site. Rohr’s Wilderness Tours (RWT) is located at 5230 Razorback Road in Conover, WI 54519. Rohr’s Wilderness Tours may be reached at (715) 547-3639 or by e-mail at RWTCanoe@nnex.net.

VACATION WEEK

Fishing Guide’s Exhibit displayed at NorthernWaters Museum To see the stories that made the Land O’ Lakes area a great place to hunt, fish or just visit, experience the new Guide’s Exhibit at Land O’ Lakes NorthernWaters Museum. Land O’ Lakes NorthernWaters Museum is located just west of downtown Land O’ Lakes, on the south side of Highway B. The museum and all related activities are sponsored by the Land O’ Lakes Historical Society. The “Guide’s Exhibit” is a collection of vintage fishing boat motors, fishing and hunting equipment of the past and nostalgia of times well remembered. Featured are biographies and pictures celebrating many famous guides of years ago, as well as modern guides of the area who carry on the old traditions, contributing to the lore and lure of the North Woods. Stories about guides include tales of the “Big One That Got Away,” plus interesting stories about renowned clients. Old photos and newspaper articles make guides’ biographies come alive. Artifacts donated and loaned to the museum by guides and their clients give visitors a feel for the people who came up to the North Woods year after year, not only to fish for trophy specimens or hunt for game, but also to experience the beauty and serenity of the lakes and pines. Visitors may be a part of the exhibit by writing notes in the visitors guide or adding personal stories about guides they know or remember.

The 2012 Guide’s Exhibit is coordinated by Dr. Barbara Wilkinson, with Sandie Pauly as the exhibit designer. The exhibit will run for two years. Volunteer docents, chaired by Bonnie Clarke, guide visitors through the exhibit, answer questions, and direct history enthusiasts on how to donate or lend articles to the museum. Special events, such as a Shore Lunch party and children’s programs, will be announced. Vacationers and residents also may find fun for children at the museum, as oldtime games and play toys are available for young ones. A series of historical books for young children authored by Marilyn Annin of Land O’ Lakes are on display. Annin’s series of books is uniquely illustrated and based on exhibits featured in recent years at the museum. The books are in a fourbook portfolio which includes “Gillis the Glacier,” telling the ancient geologic history of the area; “The Tree,” featuring the logging era; “The Hill and the Chalet,” relating the story of the museum itself; and “My Summer Vacation,” showing the development of North Woods resorts. Persons wishing to donate, lend photos and artifacts, or share stories on guides or Land O’ Lakes history should contact Barb Wilkinson at (906) 5442183 or drwilks@msn.com. The exhibit will change during its two-year run as additional pictures, stories and artifacts are added. The Land O’ Lakes His-

Local Health Mart Pharmacies offer experienced and knowledgeable staff Serving the health needs of visitors to the North Woods since 1929 are the Health Care Pharmacies. With locations in Land O’ Lakes, St. Germain and on Wall Street in downtown Eagle River, they provide for healthcare needs of Vilas County residents and visitors alike. These pharmacies not only offer old-fashioned personal service, experienced and knowledgeable staff and value pricing, but also use state-of-the-art technology and expertise to serve you better. Health Care Pharmacies are locally owned. The managing pharmacist at each location is an owner in the business, personally investing in the business and providing the best customer care. Personal service is emphasized, with a friendly, knowledgeable staff of pharmacists who have more than 100 years’ combined experience. One customer noted, “They even manage to smile over the phone!” The Health Care Pharmacies are now part of Health Mart, the fourthlargest nationwide pharmacy chain. Health Mart is a network of privately owned pharmacies joined together to leverage the power and efficiencies of a chain. Being independent allows the three locations to be more responsive to customers’ needs and to support their communities. Health Care Pharmacies feature professional prescription service and will call customers’ doctors’ offices or pharmacies back home for approval to fill a lost or forgotten prescription. Travelers can cure small inconveniences such as swimmers’ itch, bug bites, rashes or sunburns at a local Health Care Pharmacy. A variety of anti-itch and sunburn treatments are available, such as the exclusive Bite and Itch lotion, along with an expanded

an experienced and knowledgeable staff to help with all your pharmaceutical needs.

and we provide service and advice to go with your prescription or over-thecounter items. You will leave the pharmacy with the knowledge to use your product correctly for the best treatment of your condition and fastest recovery,” a pharmacy representative said. Group purchasing has allowed the stores to earn discounts from the wholesaler which, in turn, has lowered prices for consumers. It has allowed the stores to “buy in” on quantities too large to handle if the stores were separate. All stores have been remerchandised for the new season and are full of new, fresh and exciting products for the summer. All three stores are community minded and take pride in civic and community involvement and support of local clubs, churches and civic groups.
