WHITE LAKE - A local Langlade County business will soon move its headquarters from White Lake to Antigo.

Owners of Wolf River Valley Seeds bought the building on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Edison Street in Antigo earlier this month. The company is known for producing high quality forage seeds to help provide nutrition for dairy cows. They are also a leading producer of the highly nutritious triticale seed.

"Wolf River Valley Seeds in White Lake is the largest producer today in the United States of triticale for Syngenta," said Production Manager and Part-Owner Mark Resch. "Triticale is a cross between wheat and rye and a lot of people don't know what it is. In the fields around here, it would look a lot like wheat and it is a very high protein forage crop that dairy people are using."

Kenosha-area officials call for casino approvalSubmitted: 08/27/2014

MADISON - Leaders from southeastern Wisconsin and Democratic state lawmakers say Gov. Scott Walker should immediately approve the Menominee tribe's proposed casino in Kenosha because it would put people back to work.

They came together Wednesday to put pressure on Walker to approve the casino. The Bureau of Indian Affairs gave its OK for the casino a year ago but Walker has until Feb. 19 to sign off on it.

Walker said in a letter to lawmakers on Tuesday that he's moving cautiously because he's concerned about the effect on the state budget.

The Forest County Potawatomi has refused to make its annual casino revenue payment to the state as Walker negotiates with it.

Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he thinks Walker is moving as quickly as he can.
