Several Local Schools Receive AODA Grants
Published on 09/16/2019 under News Several local school districts were selected to receive grants aimed at reducing or preventing the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs among students. Overall, the Department of Public Instruction awarded nearly $900,000 in grants to 68 school districts. Among the recipients are three local districts in Lac du Flambeau, Athens, and Phillips. State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor said in announcing the grants, "Many of our funded schools will take a comprehensive approach to addressing AODA issues by employing multiple strategies. There is recognition of the need to look at students' use of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco in the larger context, encompassing the mental health and well-being of the school community as a whole." AODA program grants support teaching of skills and information along with necessary resources to prevent alcohol and drug use. These grants use multiple strategies and link resources from home, community agencies, and the school. These grants are eligible to be renewed for next school year, as well.

DNR Encourages CWD Testing in Northwoods
Published on 09/16/2019 under News With the bow season opening this past weekend, the DNR is again encouraging hunters in the Northwoods to submit samples for testing of chronic wasting disease. With three positive tests along the Oneida/Lincoln County border in the past year, this region is one of the DNR's areas of focus. Hunters who harvest an adult deer in Lincoln, Langlade, Oneida, Vilas, Forest and Florence counties are strongly encouraged to submit samples for testing. The DNR says, "The health of the deer herd relies upon commitment from our hunters. Managing CWD begins with knowing where the disease already exists on the landscape, and having this knowledge is only possible with a robust sample size." There are two smaller regions surrounding the positive tests where the DNR will again make property specific CWD Surveillance Tags available. (Contact Jaqi Christopher in Rhinelander by phone (715-401-2871) or email at jacquelyn.christopher@wisconsin.gov to set up an appointment. Surveillance permits cannot be issued by customer service staff or online.) Acting DNR Director Tami Ryan said in the announcement, "We're grateful for hunters making that extra effort to have their deer sampled for CWD, and to support them, we continue to make access to sampling simpler, faster and easier each year." CWD testing is free, and results are usually returned in two to three weeks. There are a number of drop-off locations available including kiosks at DNR stations in Tomahawk, Prentice, Merrill and Rhinelander. The DNR has a full list on their website.
