RHINELANDER - As a kid you may have loved going to the library, curling up and getting lost in a good book.
Today, librarians from across the state got a chance to learn about some of the best children's books from 2012.
The 26th annual Children's Book fest was held at the First Congregational Church of Christ in Rhinelander.
Their goal is to look at the best books in the bunch and bring them to a library near you.
Merri Lindgren from the Cooporative Children's Book center in Madison gave a presentation on the books.
"I think what a lot of people don't realize is we have to make decisions about books without even being able to see them, so new books are published and often we have to be able to rely on reviews, so what other people thought about them and that is very helpful but there is nothing like having a book in your hands and being able to examine it," said Lindgren.
The books were all published within the last year.
They range in topic from picture books for little ones, to young adult novels.
WISCONSIN - The DNR set new rules for tagging deer hit by a car. The new rules remove local law enforcement from the process.
You no longer have to call police to get a tag issued for a deer carcass, if you want to take it home after an accident.
"The new policy for the DNR shows that you just have to dial a number in order to get a tag issued for a deer on the side of the road instead of having to call a dispatcher to get a deputy on scene," said Oneida County Sheriff's Department Dispatch Brandi Gray.
This has to be done before taking the deer from the scene. The person who hit the deer has the right to take it, but if they don't want the deer, anyone can have it.
ONEIDA COUNTY - Invasive species specialists work hard to protect our lakes, but a few areas in Oneida County aren't doing as well as they'd like.
Aquatic experts have found invasive species in four new Oneida County lakes this summer. It's not a great sign, but it also isn't like years ago when someone might find acres of an invasive. However, it's still an issue.
