State Celebrates Role of Forest Industry in Economy
Published on 10/23/2018 under News From the days of lumberjacks to modern mills, the forest industry has served as a lifeblood for many Wisconsin communities. In recognition of those who work in and care for Wisconsin's 17.1 million acres of forests, this week has been designated as Wisconsin Forest Products Week. Collin Buntrock, a Forest Products Team Leader with the DNR says, "From paper products such as food packaging, fine writing paper and tissue paper, to lumber used for homes and furniture, the products made by the 1,200-plus forest products companies in Wisconsin help make our life better." Buntrock's team of forest products specialists helps Wisconsin's forest industry build and maintain strong markets while ensuring that forests remain a vital part of the state's economy and culture for future generations. He noted that forest products contribute $24.1 billion annual to the state's economy. More than 60,000 people work directly in the industry, which is a leading employer in 10 counties. That includes Lincoln County, where more than 1,100 people work in the industry. We'll have a bit more on those local numbers later this week.

Defense Points Blame for Toddler's Death in Tran Trial
Published on 10/23/2018 under News RHINELANDER, Wis. (AP) — A defense attorney for a Wisconsin woman accused of killing her young stepson is attempting to pin blame for the child's death on the boy's father. Thirty-year-old Ellen Tran is on trial in Oneida County for first-degree reckless homicide. Twenty-month-old Avery Edwards died in April 2017 while he was in the care of Tran and her husband at the time, Trung Tran. WJFW-TV reports the toddler spent most of his time with his biological mother in Virginia, but occasionally stayed with his father and stepmother in Rhinelander. Defense attorney Jonas Bednarek attempted to show that Trung Tran was the person who likely caused his son's death. Trung Tran took the stand briefly Monday and refused to answer questions, citing his constitutional rights against self-incrimination. He's charged with two lesser felonies in his son's death.

In the first race of the day, battling 30 mile an hour winds and sleet the Tomahawk boys matched their 4th place finish from a year ago. They placed three runners in the top 20, led by sophomores Drew Bolder (13th-17:35), Noah Buckwalter (14th-17:36) and senior Evan Ploeckelman (19th-17:42). The final Hatchets to finish their season at Sectionals were sophomore Garron Albrent (38th-18:16), senior Shawn Dirkx (44th-18:21), freshman Arden Ziert (56th-18:44) and sophomore Trey Baalke (60th-18:49).
