Obama and Romney Debate Foreign PolicySubmitted: 10/22/2012
Story By WJFW News Team


BOCA RATON, FL - For the last time before next month's general election, President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney faced off in a debate.

CBS's Bob Schieffer moderated Monday night. He led the candidates on a fairly specific focus: foreign policy.

China was brought up a handful of times, but it was the Middle East: namely Libya, Syria, and especially Iran and Israel, that were the big talking points.

Military spending was another focal point. Romney attacked the President for what he claims are major cuts in funding.

President Obama countered by saying our armed forces have never been stronger, even though their sheer size is shrinking.

The candidates finished with their pleas for your vote. The election is just two weeks from Tuesday.

Gun deer hunt brings business to the Northwoods, some worry new rules could affect tourismSubmitted: 10/22/2014

NORTHWOODS - Some Northwoods businesses worry that new deer hunt regulations could hurt tourism.

The gun deer hunt brings traffic to area businesses after the summer is over, but new rules could keep people from traveling up north.

"Several guests have called and some have cancelled because they say that there's not going to be any doe tags being issued in this area," says Hiawatha Lodge owner Scott Frickson.

You can't get an antlerless deer tag in Wisconsin north of Marathon County.
That could lead to less hunting tourism in the Northwoods.
