Rodgers ruled out to start at QB for Packers
Story By Associated Press

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers will play another game without star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers ruled out an injured Rodgers on Friday for the road matchup with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Rodgers has been sidelined since he suffered a broken collarbone early in Green Bay's loss to the Chicago Bears on Nov. 4. Rodgers practiced on a limited basis this week and even took some reps with the first-string offense in team drills Wednesday and Thursday.

But coach Mike McCarthy said after practice Friday that the decision to hold Rodgers out for a sixth straight game was made in the best interest of the team's franchise quarterback. McCarthy said Rodgers had a good week of preparation but did very little in practice Friday.

The decision to declare him out for the game came as a disappointment to Rodgers, McCarthy added.

Matt Flynn will make his third straight start in place of Rodgers as the Packers (6-6-1) try to stay in contention for the NFC North title with three games left.

PELICAN - A group of neighbors in the Town of Pelican found a cluster of caterpillars near their homes on Lake Julia Road.

Last year, the plants hosting the more than 20 monarch caterpillars were mowed over.

This year, the group has a plan to protect the at-risk insects from meeting the same fate.

More than 20 monarch caterpillars have moved into some foliage on Lake Julia Road in Pelican.

"I just thought, 'Oh wonderful, I'll have to protect these,'" said butterfly enthusiast Mary Dork.

Last year, Dork was pleased to find a field of milkweed near her house covered in monarch caterpillars.

"You can always tell where the caterpillars are because of the leaves being eaten," said Dork.

The DNR says monarchs have been at risk of being endangered since 2014.
