MERRILL - Apple picker Kyle Gulke has worked at Helene's Hilltop Orchard in Merrill for three years.

"I wanted to help out. They definitely need help to pick all the trees," said Gulke.

Orchard owner Olivia Telschow has about 14 acres of trees. That's at least 8,000 trees.

Only two men are in charge of picking apples from those trees.

"I'm still short about 12 employees," said Telschow.

Telschow says battling this summer's heat was hard, but finding people willing to work in it was even more challenging.

She has openings throughout the orchard, but needs pickers the most.

MADISON, WIS. (AP) - Madison officials say Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents violated city policy by detaining at least six immigrants without letting police know ahead of time.

Madison Police Chief Mike Koval says the department has a working relationship with ICE, but the federal agency did not follow protocol. Koval says ICE has agreed to call the assistant police chief before making arrests in Madison. This time the agency called the Dane County Communications Center.

Koval says the arrests were made at separate workplaces and are not considered to be part of a raid. He says the community is in "hyper-warp distress mode."

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin says ICE told city officials the people arrested are believed to have committed serious crimes, but he does not know the specifics of the investigation.
