It promises to be a jam-packed fall weekend across the northwoods.

The Junior Woman's Club's annual craft and vendor sale is always a big draw, there are apples to enjoy and wagon rides to experience at Grandview Orchard, and, next week, the last of the Owl-Ween Tours at the raptor center.

There will also be dining opportunities galore, ranging from a spaghetti fund-raiser for the animal shelter to roast beef at SS. Mary & Hyacinth, ham and turkey in Polar, and sauerkraut and kielbasa in White Lake.

And on Thursday comes a chance to support a good causeâ€cancer awarenessâ€while enjoying an evening of shopping and entertainment.

Here's a look at events, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal advertising columns.

HARVEST FESTIVALS, DINNERS

Wednesday court sentences include multiple meth cases
space
A Rhinelander woman found with methamphetamine and a slew of drug paraphernalia in a vehicle parked behind a closed Antigo business in September of 2017, was sentenced to prison in Langlade County Court Wednesday.

Samantha K. Kronberger, 29, pled no contest to a charge of possession of meth as a repeat offender, while a drug paraphernalia charge was dismissed but read in as part of a plea deal with the state.

Kronberger was ordered to serve a three year prison term, consisting of one year initial confinement and two years of extended supervision. In addition, she was fined court costs, must undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, maintain absolute sobriety, full-time employment, and undergo any counseling deemed necessary.

According to online court records, an officer on patrol observed a vehicle behind the closed Antigo business at 2:44 a.m. on Sept. 17, 2017. Kronberger was behind the wheel, with a male in the passenger seat. She initially told authorities she was lost and trying to get to Rhinelander.

Permission was given to search the vehicle and a cigarette wrapper containing meth was allegedly found inside. A number of items consistent with intr

Vandalism, theft among local police reports
space
Antigo Police investigated a case of vandalism at a Lincoln Street residence early today.

According to reports, a resident reported at 3:09 a.m., someone had thrown a piece of metal through a window of the home, shattering it.

A male was observed running northbound on Lincoln Street. The only description given to police was that the man was “holding up his pants.”

In an unrelated incident, police checked a report of a shoplifter at the Antigo Wal-Mart store at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday. The suspect, later identified as a 32-year-old area man, had refused to stop and left northbound.

A description of his vehicle was given, but his identity was likely given away by the fact he left his 33-year-old female companion behind.

Charges piling up for Antigo man after Friday incident
space
An Antigo man involved in a scary incident at a city residence Friday, was ordered to a $3,000 cash bond in Langlade County Court Monday, bringing his total number of open cases to six.

Thomas J. Smitala, 54, 114 Fred St., is accused of using a baseball bat to break the tail lights on a vehicle parked at the home and entering without permission. Once inside, he asked a resident where a male was who lived at the property, saying he owed him money.

The resident was apparently unfamiliar with Smitala, who left once police were called. A description of him and the vehicle he drove was given. He was soon located and taken into custody.

Smitala now faces a potential long prison sentence, with a total of six new felony charges pending. He now faces additional counts of criminal damage to property, criminal trespass, and disorderly conduct.

Open cases also pending include charges of possession of methamphetamine and burglary, among many others.

Langlade County District Attorney Elizabeth Gebert noted in asking for the high bond, that a prior $2,000 cash bond in March had not stopped Smitala from “engaging in criminal conduct.”

He will re
