Another wolf hunting zone will closeSubmitted: 10/20/2014
MADISON - You can still hunt for wolves in Wisconsin, but in fewer places.

Zone 5 will be shut down as of 6:30 Monday evening. That's in the west-central part of the state.

Two other wolf hunting zones in Northern Wisconsin closed for the season Sunday.

The Department of Natural Resources closed Zones 1 and 4.

As of 6:30 p.m. Sunday, hunters and trappers weren't allowed to go after wolves in the two areas. That's because hunters have already gotten the allowed numbers of wolves.

The DNR closed Zone 2 last week as well.

As of this evening, only 2 of the state's 6 wolf hunting zones will remain open. The wolf hunting season began Wednesday. The statewide kill limit is 150 animals.

The DNR's website shows that hunters have already killed 85 wolves across all zones. Only 65 more animals can be killed.

Packers set to demolish Lambeau area propertiesSubmitted: 10/18/2014

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers will soon begin demolishing a former Kmart store and other buildings the team owns on property west of Lambeau Field.

Building permits at the Village of Ashwaubenon show that next week work crews will begin tearing down the former Pomp's Tire store, a Hardee's restaurant and several buildings left on the former Big Lots property. The Kmart building and a chiropractor's office will be razed in November after asbestos is removed.

Packers' spokesman Aaron Popkey says it makes sense to knock them down now, so the Packers don't have to heat the buildings through the winter. Some of the land will be used for parking. Popkey says the franchise is still exploring various concepts for the rest of the property.

Investigators find western Wis. cabin full of potSubmitted: 10/18/2014

VERNON COUNTY - Drug investigators arrested a 45-year-old man after finding a rural western Wisconsin cabin filled with dried marijuana plants.

Vernon County Sheriff's Lt. Scott Bjerkos says the bust in rural La Farge Friday morning was one of their largest. The dried plants that filled a cargo van were estimated to be worth $100,000.

Sheriff John Spears says investigators suspect the plants were grown about 20 miles away in the town of Franklin.

Investigators say a 45-year-old man fled from an outbuilding of the cabin when authorities arrived with a search warrant. Spears say they found him in the woods about a quarter-mile away, along with knives, marijuana and a pipe he hid under leaves.

He could face federal and state charges.
