Wisconsin again is witnessing winter's annual sudden and severe arrival, dropping snow and temperatures to form early-season ice on ponds, lakes and rivers. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reminds winter enthusiasts that ice should never be considered safe and early season ice conditions vary from waterbody to waterbody.
No matter what you think of Donald Trump, there was one message that Americans sent loud and clear on Nov. 8 that should be welcome to the ears of those on the left and right alike: We've had enough of the cronyism and financial payoffs to political pals that have been so prevalent in national politics for the past couple decades.

During this Advent season and in the post-election climate in the United States, I write as President of the United Methodist Council of Bishops to call for a renewed commitment to the vision of the Beloved Community of Christ. Isaiah prophesied that a child would be born to re-establish the beloved community — a time of endless peace, a time of justice and righteousness, a time of reconciliation and unity.

Authorities said thieves apparently made off with a $10,000 piece of railroad equipment from a western Wisconsin train depot. According to the Pepin Police Department, a black-and-yellow track horse was stolen between Sept. 22 and Nov. 30 from the BNSF depot in Pepin.

The CBC is a long-standing program of the National Audubon Society, with more than 100 years of citizen science involvement. It is an early-winter bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the U.S., Canada and many countries in the Western Hemisphere go out over a 24-hour period on one calendar day to count birds.
"Protests are not the same," the Grand Forks Herald's editorial printed in the RE Dec. 3&4, is a first-class "whitewash" of a contemporary environmentally and culturally significant concern.
MADISON, Wis. — As part of the first study of its kind in Wisconsin, the Southwest Wisconsin chronic wasting disease, deer and predator research project will actively monitor coyote and bobcat populations in southwestern Wisconsin, and trappers and landowners are reminded of opportunities to play a key role in this study. GPS collars will be placed on predators in Grant, Iowa and Dane counties to provide a more definitive look at how predator abundance and distribution may impact deer populations.
Pheasant hunters can expect to see some roosters in the fields this December, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. "We've encountered some wet weather this season, but once the ground freezes, we can expect some really good hunting conditions," said Scott Roemhildt, DNR roadsides for wildlife coordinator.
