RHINELANDER - We often bring you stories of efforts to fight aquatic invasive species in the Northwoods during the summer. It's tempting to think that invasives don't pose a problem during the winter.
But conservation workers want you to rethink that idea. Species like Eurasian watermilfoil don't simply wither underwater in the winter.
"Eurasian watermilfoil is considered a perennial. However, I consider it an evergreen. A lot of people do," said Oneida County AIS Coordinator Stephanie Boismenue. "The reason being is it's winter-hardy. It's capable to live and grow underneath the ice."
SCHOFIELD - Choirs sang, bells rang, and teenagers like Claire Tomczik shed a few tears.
"It got me a little emotional," Tomczik said.
She and about 140 fellow D.C. Everest High School students went to a Pearl Harbor remembrance ceremony in the school auditorium Wednesday morning -- 75 years to the day after the attacks happened -- by choice.
MADISON - Every student and employee in the University of Wisconsin System would have to undergo online training on sexual violence and harassment issues under a plan that regents are expected to approve Thursday.
The regents' sexual harassment policy hasn't been updated since 1987. System President Ray Cross asked a task force in 2014 to come up with recommendations for revisions.
MADISON - A Republican congressman who derided Wisconsin's capital city as a communist haven is not backing down from his comments even as those in the city that prides itself as being "77 square miles surrounded by reality" take offense.
LA CROSSE - The death of a woman initially thought to be the result of a freak accident on a La Crosse County road has now been blamed on her husband.
Forty-six-year-old Barbara Kendhammer, of West Salem, was found critically injured after authorities responded to a car crash Sept. 16. Her husband, Todd Kendhammer, told authorities a pipe fell from a truck as he was driving, broke through the windshield and hit his wife, who died the following day.
