Stuffed Animals Provide Hugs of Comfort to Lakeland Area Emergency Services
Published on 06/14/2019 under News A stuffed animal can provide comfort to a scared child. Thanks to one group, emergency responders in the Northwoods will have an additional supply to hand out. Yesterday, the Lakeland Area Republican Women's Club or LARWC provided approximately 275 stuffed animals to ten Lakeland Area emergency service providers including fire, law enforcement and medical. The project is called 'Hugs of Comfort.' It was this year's service project from the 30 member group. LARWC president Norma Duerst says, "This is our clubs way of saying thank you to the police, fire and emergency medical services who provide invaluable service to our community. We are blessed to support the many dedicated professionals and volunteers who care for our residents and the many visitors to the area." Yesterday's presentation was held at Howard Young Medical Center. In the announcement, Rick Brodhead, Medical Director of Emergency Services said, "This donation will provide comfort to children served by these agencies and ease the fear they may have as they receive treatment." They said recipients include: municipal and county fire, police, sheriff and first responder agencies from Minocqua, Arbor Vitae, Hazelhurst, Manitowish Waters, Lac Du Flambeau, Oneida County, Vilas County; as well as Howard Young Medical Center and Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport.

Deer/Vehicle Accidents Typically Increase in June
Published on 06/14/2019 under News With new fawns and extended daylight, deer activity is picking up. That means drivers need to be extra vigilant. David Pabst, the Director of the Bureau of Transportation Safety says, "This time of year, we typically see an increase in vehicle speeds and traffic volumes along with more motorcycles and deer along roadways. It's a recipe for a crash, especially if motorists aren't being alert." Last year in Wisconsin, motorists reported 20,177 deer/vehicle crashes to law enforcement, resulting in more than 500 injuries. Here in Lincoln County the total was 303. Oneida County had 243 reported crashes involving deer. The DoT says that motorcyclists need to be extra alert. All 4 fatalities involving deer crashes involved motorcycles. The DoT did offer some additional tips regarding deer.•If you see one deer cross in front of you, watch for more. One long blast from your vehicle's horn may frighten the animal away.  •If a collision with a deer is unavoidable: ○Brake firmly. Stay in your lane.  ○Avoid sudden swerving which can result in a loss of vehicle control and a more serious crash. ○The one exception is if you are operating a motorcycle, in which case you should slow down, brake firmly and swerve if necessary to avoid hitting the deer. Try to stay within your lane to avoid hitting other objects.  •If you do hit a deer:  ○Get your vehicle safely off the road if possible and call law enforcement. Be prepared to describe your specific location.  ○It's generally safest to stay buckled-up inside your vehicle. Walking along a highway is always dangerous as you could be struck by another vehicle. ○Don't attempt to move an injured deer.

Small-Mouth Bass, Northern Zone Opens Saturday
Published on 06/14/2019 under News For our Northwoods anglers, one last fishing season opens for the summer this weekend. That would be for the small-mouth bass. The state is currently divided into a northern and southern zone for bass. In our immediate listening area, the boundary line is Highway 64. While anglers could practice catch-and-release on 'smallies' the past 6 weeks, the Northern zone season opens for harvest starting June 15. As always, anglers are reminded to check regulations including bag and size limits for each body of water. Reservoirs There wasn't much change on our area reservoir levels, all of which remain within a foot of being full. As of Thursday, the Eau Pleine and Spirit are each about 3 inches down; while Nokomis, the Rainbow, and Willow are each about 10 inches down.
