MILWAUKEE - A new report says publicly financed sports arenas don't provide an economic benefit to communities.
That conclusion would blunt the argument that's commonly used to justify construction of new stadiums at taxpayer expense.
The study is from Milwaukee's Legislative Reference Bureau. The report released Friday cites studies showing that publicly financed sports venues haven't paid off economically for the city, county or state governments that are paying for them.
The community is deciding whether it needs to replace the BMO Harris Bradley Center where the Bucks play in Milwaukee.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
