MILWAUKEE - Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a finalist to defend his National League M-V-P award. Braun lead the NL with 41 home runs. He was also tops in total bases and runs while tying for the lead in extra-base hits.
Braun won an appeal of a 50-game suspension before the season. The suspension was for a positive test for a banned substance.
MINOCQUA - These plants may look pretty but they're taking over our rivers and lakes. Michele Sadauskas is Oneida County's Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator. She is working to map and control the yellow iris, the plant you see here. She and two other conservation workers spent the day weeding Stacks Bay.
"They invade our wetlands. They're a really robust, aggressive plant. What they do is they crowd out our native species and make actually the wetland a lot less diverse," says Michele Sadauskas, Oneida County AIS Coordinator.
Removing yellow iris is a slow process. It takes three hours of work just to properly map and control 20 feet of shoreline.
