Tough Winter For Owls

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Scientists say the long winter hasn't been easy on owls in Wisconsin, including three rare species that have migrated from the boreal forest north of the U.S. border.

The state Department of Natural Resources says every few years the small rodent population crashes and the owls move south in search of food. So, Wisconsin has become a temporary home for three species not normally seen here the northern hawk owl, the great gray owl and the boreal owl. The DNR says they've been spotted in Door, Ashland and Douglas counties and as far south as Racine and Kenosha counties.

DNR research scientist Ryan Brady says the long winter and unfamiliar landscape of highways and other risk factors have taken a toll on the rare visitors.

That's A Ton Of Cheese Dude

Written by

CASHTON, Wis. (AP) An Illinois man accused of stealing 21 tons of Wisconsin cheese has been arrested in New Jersey. New Jersey authorities say the 34-year-old man from Plainfield, Ill., was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

Police Lt. Stephen Jones said Wednesday the man was driving a refrigerated truck carrying 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese. Jones says the cheese company, K&K Cheese in Cashton, Wis., valued the cargo at $200,000. New Jersey state patrol Detective Oliver Sissman says the suspect used false paperwork to obtain the cheese.

Company spokesman Kevin Everhart says K&K can't guarantee the cheese hasn't been tampered with so it didn't ask for the product back. Jones says if the cheese passes inspections by health authorities it will be donated to charity. The man was apparently going to sell the cheese on the East Coast black market.

Is Winona jumping the gun on trying to keep the frac sand industry in line?

Just two weeks after a sand mining moratorium expired in Winona, the city planning commission is talking about doing its own monitoring of air quality at mining sites. Assistant city planner Carlos Espinosa says a special study group may have to decide whether monitoring should be done by the state, instead of the city.  The Winona City Council may have the final decision on that proposal.  Espinosa tells us that Chippewa Falls already has a monitoring system in place, which has shown little air pollution because of sand mining.
