ADRC of Central Wisconsin Continues to Benefit Lincoln County Residents
Published on 04/21/2017 under News More than six years in, the local Aging and Disability Resource Center continues to benefit the residents in participating counties. This week the Lincoln County Board heard a presentation from Central Wisconsin ADRC executive director Linda Weitz. The Central Wisconsin group includes Lincoln, Langlade, Marathon and Wood Counties. Weitz explained that their services continue to be a model in the state as well as being cost effective with no increase in the Lincoln County contribution in six years. She says they provide a variety of services allowing older and disabled adults to maintain their physical, financial and psychological health and independence. Weitz then turned to the 2016 data. She says they were contacted by nearly 10,000 individuals in their 4 county region including almost 1,000 in Lincoln County. She also highlighted their nutrition program, which served more than 220,000 meals including 37,000 in Lincoln County. She closed by providing an anecdote from a woman who told Weitz she was able to care for her husband with Alzheimers by utilizing the programs provided by the ADRC-CW. That woman is not alone in praising the group. Customer surveys reported improved nutrition and quality of life for more than 88 percent of respondents.

Sen. Tiffany, Rep Jacque Circulating Woodchuck Hunting Bill
Published on 04/21/2017 under News Republican lawmakers, including our local state senator, are bringing back a bill that would establish a Wisconsin woodchuck hunting season. Rep. Andre Jacque and Sen. Tom Tiffany began circulating the bill for co-sponsors yesterday. The measure would remove woodchucks from the state's protected species list and establish a hunting season for them from the beginning of July through the end of December with no bag limits. The legislators say the animal is abundant and they've heard complaints about woodchucks eating gardens and flowerbeds and causing damage by burrowing along sidewalks, driveways and building foundations. According to the AP report, Jacque introduced an almost identical bill in 2013. It generated a backlash from animal lovers and never got out of the Assembly's natural resources committee.
