Wolf Hunt Petitions
MADISON, Wis. (AP) A group of humane societies has appealed a Dane County judge's ruling that wolf hunters can use dogs. The humane societies filed a lawsuit last year alleging the state Department of Natural Resources failed to impose any real restrictions on wolf hunters using dogs when the agency set up the framework for the wolf season. The societies argued the lack of regulations would create deadly wolf-dog brawls in the woods.
Judge Peter Anderson issued a double-sided decision this past January that hunters can't train dogs on wolves in Wisconsin but they can use them to track down wolves during the season.
The societies filed their notice of appeal on Friday.

Fluoride Returns In Holmen...At Least Until Referendum Next April
Voters of Holmen, consider yourself warned...
You have a full year to decide how you really feel about fluoridation, before the village puts another fluoride referendum on the ballot. The village board has authorized a new referendum for April of 2014 to settle the future of fluoridation, which was approved by voters five years ago, but shut down by the board after only a few days of operation. Board members have debated since January about whether to switch from a liquid fluoride formula to a powder that's considered safer, but the board voted on Thursday to go back to the old system in use before the suspension. It could take a couple of months before fluoride goes back into Holmen's tap water.
