    Experts say North Woods has growing herd

    A deer herd that is  rebounding, the likelihood of  snow opening weekend and the possibility of rutting deer should leave hunters optimistic when they take to northern forests for the start of the nine-day gun season this Saturday, Nov. 18.

    A permanent injunction to prevent the commercial pumping and transport of water from the Carlin Club property in Presque Isle to a bottling facility in Marenisco, Mich., was approved in Vilas County Circuit Court last Thursday.
    The ruling prevents Carlin Club Properties LLC from erecting any new structure, driveway or other facility for pumping and transporting water, but does not prevent Carlin Club LLC interests from seeking a zoning permit, conditional-use permit, change in zoning classification or other relief from Vilas County officials.

    Voters in the Three Lakes School District approved a referendum 750-294 last Tuesday, allowing the school board to exceed the state-mandated revenue limit through property taxes by just over $3 million each of the next five years to help fund school district operations.
    The school district was seeking $3,092,787 in additional revenue above the current limit for each of the next five years. This total includes the previous referendum amount of $2.34 million and will add $747,664 for each of the next five years starting with the 2018-’19 school year. 
    The vote totals by precinct in the school district were: Three Lakes/Hiles, 431-174; Sugar Camp, 269-96; Monico, 41-17; and Piehl, 9-7.

    State Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst) and State Reps. Adam Jarchow (R-Balsam Lake), Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) and Romaine Quinn (R-Rice Lake) circulated a bill last week that would prohibit law enforcement from enforcing any federal or state laws related to managing the state’s wolf population.
    Jarchow said LRB 3737/1 also prohibits the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) from using any funds for the purpose of managing wolves in Wisconsin.
    “If Congress refuses to act — we will. It is clear that Congress will not be solving Wisconsin’s wolf issue anytime soon, therefore we must take matters into our own hands,” said

  • Hunters reminded of rule changes heading into Saturday’s opener
    Tuesday, November 14, 2017 12:04 PM
    Wisconsin’s nine-day gun deer season opens Saturday, Nov. 18, and state wildlife officials are enthusiastic about the prospects for 2017.
    Kevin Wallenfang, big game ecologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), said he is like any other hunter when the weather turns cold, excited for the season.
    “Deer numbers in Vilas are consistent with what we expected after three back-to- back mild winters,” Wallenfang said. “There has been an increase in deer sightings, car collisions, agricultural and ornamental plant damage complaints, including more deer on airport runways.”
    Preliminary data shows that

  • Depth, leadership will be key factor for Phelps girls
    Tuesday, November 14, 2017 12:01 PM
    Athletic programs in most small Wisconsin school districts routinely experience hardships with numbers.
    When the Wisconsin In­ter­scholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) made the change from playing four 8-minute quarters to two 16-minute halves, it put an added stress on depth with players going for longer stretches of time without op­portunities for substitution.
    The change though has spurred many positives for schools like Phelps and programs like coach Lynn Kolling’s.
    It may be the tight-knit feel players have for one another, both on and off the athletic surface. It might be that they often feel like they have nothing to lose and

    Warm The Children is a non­profit program that provides new winter clothing to eligible children. It also provides benefits for the adults who give back to the community by assisting the families as volunteer shoppers.

    Volunteer shoppers also contribute monetary donations to help reach the annual goal and often buy extra items such as diapers, formula, extra gloves and
