Weekend Storms Leave Portion of Rocky Run Road Washed Out
Published on 06/19/2018 under News As we saw, the weekend storms caused tremendous road damage in far northern Wisconsin and the UP. The heavy rains left a local road in Harshaw impassible as well. We heard from the Town of Cassian earlier Tuesday morning. They said that the segment of Rocky Run Road West over Rocky Run Creek has washed out completely overnight. The road was partially collapsed over the weekend. As a result, the road is closed to through traffic between Highway 51 and County Y until further notice.

McNaughton Inmates Graduate from Nicolet Program
Published on 06/19/2018 under News It was graduation day for a unique program here in the Northwoods. Five inmates at the McNaughton Correctional Center successfully completed Nicolet College's 13 credit Mechanical Maintenance program. The inmates at the minimum security facility represent the state's efforts to train inmates nearing release for in-demand careers in the community. That includes partnerships with nearby technical colleges such as Nicolet. The DoC said in the announcement that these certifications help the graduates find family-sustaining jobs in an effort to reduce recidivism. In the last budget, the state set aside money to further these programs by purchasing mobile labs which will provide instruction in welding and industrial maintenance. Nicolet College President Richard Nelson said. "They've demonstrated through hard work and dedication that they have earned this distinction, something they will be able to carry with them for the rest of their lives. The skill sets they now have will serve as a strong cornerstone as they move forward and build their lives. (They )can now proudly call themselves Nicolet College graduates." Earlier this year, Nicolet also partnered with the Oneida County Jail to help inmates there earn their GED.

Invasive Species Awareness Month Changes Name, Seeks Action
Published on 06/19/2018 under News After 15 years, Invasive Species Awareness Month is getting a new name and focus: Wisconsin Invasive Species Action Month. Tom Buechel, chair of the Wisconsin Invasive Species Council says many residents and visitors are already aware of the problems with invasive species and the name change will hopefully encourage action. Common invasives in Wisconsin include the Emerald Ash borer, garlic mustard, purple loosestrife and zebra mussels. Drew Feldkirchner leads the DNR's Natural Heritage Conservation Program. He says, "Once an invasive species gets established, it can be extremely difficult to control, so the most important action Wisconsinites can take is to avoid moving invasive species to un-infested sites in Wisconsin and to other states." A few of the simplest tips that citizens can undertake...To prevent accidentally spreading emerald ash borer, oak wilt and gypsy moth, campers and recreationists should obtain firewood locally, and buy only firewood certified as safe by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) or by USDA. Learn more on DNR's website, dnr.wi.gov, and search keyword "firewood." Anglers and boaters can help protect lakes and rivers by cleaning recreational equipment after every use and draining all water from gear before leaving a site. If possible, wash gear with hot water and dry it for five or more days between uses. For more information, visit dnr.wi.gov and search "aquatic invasive species." Gardeners and landscapers can prevent spreading invasive species by planting and promoting only native plants or non-native plants that don't expand beyond the garden or seed into other areas. . For more information visit the Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin (IPAW) website at www.ipaw.org. While Invasive Species Action Month is in June, of course you should take action all year long.
