WAUSAU - It can be easy to feel like you don't have much of a say in politics.
But several Democratic state lawmakers wanted to hear what their constituents think of the state's checkbook.
Northwoods residents voiced their opinion at a budget listening session in Wausau.
One of the main issues was Governor Walker's Education funding.
Representative Mandy Wright is a former teacher.
She's worried school in her district, Wausau, won't get a fair shake.
"All of the schools actually that were failing have high levels of poverty and high level of needs for their students and families," Wright said.
"So as we see job loses, as we see our economy not recovering the way we'd like to, we're very concerned about seeing voucher expansion which pulls money away from our public schools and funds an entirely separate school system."
Representative Wright says there will be another listening session Tuesday at Northcentral Technical College starting at 6:30 p.m.
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.
