Summer Camp introduces the community to 4-H activitiesSubmitted: 02/26/2015
LANGLADE COUNTY - With these frigid temperatures, it seems like summer is far away. But one local group is already planning for the summer months.



Leaders of Langlade County 4-H try to find unique ways to introduce the public to the various activities it offers. This summer, community members will get to participate in a day of 4-H camp.

"We go swimming. We go boating. Play sports, arts and crafts. Lunch is provided for the kids," says 4-H Youth Development Educator Krista Otto. "And so it's just a really great opportunity to get outdoors and do some activities."

The community day of camp will be open to all Langlade County kids, as well as kids from surrounding counties. The camp also gives highschoolers the opportunity to be leaders.

"Last year we had 19 camp counselors," says Otto. "And last year they had a great time working with the kids and running the programs."

Community day camp will be held July 6 at Camp Susan north of Antigo. It costs $10. You can call (715) 627-6236 for more information.

NORTHERN WISCONSIN - Deer councils in Northern Wisconsin want to see more deer. Harsh winters have decreased local deer population and harvest levels. Leaders in the Northwoods hope local changes with deer population management goals will help.

A 2012 state deer report set up local deer advisory councils. They now recommend whether to increase, maintain, or decrease deer population.

The Natural Resources Board voted and approved council plans for deer populations throughout the entire state. For northern Wisconsin counties, that means plans to increase the population.

"The biggest tool we have to manage deer populations is to increase or decrease the number of antlerless deer that are taken by hunters," said Antigo's DNR Area Wildlife Supervisor Chuck McCullough. "If we want the population to grow, we take fewer antlerless deer by hunting."

TOMAHAWK - Sometimes it feels like you've had a rough day. But as the old saying goes, "someone out there is having a tougher day than you." We caught up with a Tomahawk woman who lost her house in a fire and is battling cancer. Some Tomahawk kids told us how she's able to keep a smile on her face and bring cheer to others.

"She's a very strong woman. She's very cheerful. Despite all of her hardships she still can smile. She still has a loving heart," said 18-year-old Umran Abdul Majeed.

Judy Schroeder always has a warm smile on her face. Even after she lost everything last Wednesday night in a house fire.

"We had inspectors in the building that we were in and they determined that it wasn't safe for us to be in it anymore," explained Museum President Pauleyn Nystrom. "So we had to find a new location. It turned out that it is quite a bit bigger actually."
