"Volunteer Fair" in Rhinelander Aims to Pair Potential Volunteers with Organizations
Published on 01/22/2019 under News The generosity of the Northwoods is no secret with people donating their dollars and time to organizations in every community. Typically those people have some connection to the non-profit they work with. But what about those who want to help, and aren't sure where? Coming up today, the Rhinelander community will seek to assist those individuals with the unique idea of a "Volunteer Fair." Set up like a typical job fair or college fair, around two dozen organizations in need of volunteer help will be set up at the Trig's Riverwalk this morning and afternoon. Their goal is to form a long-lasting partnership between potential volunteers and those in need of help. They'll be set up at the Trig's Riverwalk on Courtney Street from 10am to 2pm today.

Natural Resources Board Exploring Reduction of Bear Pemits, Length of Crossbow Season
Published on 01/22/2019 under News The length of the crossbow season and black bear harvest quotas are among the topics being discussed during the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board meetings the next two days. According to the meeting agenda, the board will explore reducing the black bear harvest quotas in three of the state's four zones. The goal would be to reduce the overall harvest by approximately 700 bear. The largest decrease would be in zone A, here in Northern Wisconsin. The goal would be to reduce the harvest from 1250 down to 900. To achieve that goal, they would reduce the permits by 540 tags. The crossbow/deer topic is listed as "informational." They're studying ways to "equalize buck harvest success rates." This would be accomplished by reducing the success of the crossbow season, to levels near to the gun and bow seasons. According to the study, the only option the board has within the rules is to reduce the length of the season. The background information has 7 options to do so, including: reducing time at the start or end of the seasons; in the lead to or immediately after the gun season; or intermittent weekday or weekend closures. Other topics on the agenda include the migratory bird season framework, setting the public hearing questions for the spring meetings, and a donation to cover the cost of planting 100,000 tree seedlings on DNR lands. While the meetings are held in Madison Tuesday and Wednesday, the DNR does stream them on their website.
