    The 2017 projected timber sales on Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest will be the highest since 1993, when the two forests together sold a total of 124.6 million board feet (MMBF). 
    And, for the fifth year in a row, the amount of timber sold from the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest has increased and will top 120 MMBF, according to U.S. Forest Service officials.
    Timber sales on the forest have only topped 100 million board feet seven times in the past 20 years and only two times since 2001.

    A request for a $150,000 short-term “bridge loan” from the Oneida-Vilas Transit Commission was rejected by the Vilas County Finance Committee last Wednesday, which may cause the public transportation system to shut down, at least temporarily.
    Formed in 2015 by joint resolutions between the two counties, public ridership on the Northern Transit Connections white and green minibuses has continued to increase, with 36,293 one-way trips through August of this year. 
    There are buses located in Eagle River, Minocqua and Rhinelander. It is anticipated rides will reach close to 60,000 by the end of December.

    Dan Meyer of Eagle River has been tapped by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker as the next Department of Natural Resources (DNR) secretary.

    “We’ve already had reports of flu cases and hospitalizations due to the flu, so we want to encourage people to get their flu shots as soon as possible,” said State Health Officer Karen Mc­Keown.
    From Sept. 1 through Sept. 22, there have been 19 confirmed cases of influenza in Wisconsin and eight hospitalizations, compared to five confirmed cases and two hospitalizations during the same period in 2016.
