Wolf hunt ends in Upper Michigan
Story By Associated Press

LANSING, MICHIGAN - In Wisconsin, wolf hunters and trappers reached their quotas rapidly in most areas of the state.

The Upper Peninsula's wolf hunt just ended.

There, it was a much different story.

Hunters killed 23 wolves in the U.P during the state's first wolf hunt in four decades.

The department had a quota of 43 for the hunt.

Officials say that unusually cold weather probably kept hunt numbers down.

The wolf hunting season opened on Nov. 15. Before the season, the DNR estimated that Michigan had 658 wolves.

PHILLIPS - Kids see plenty of pressure these days and that pressure can cause kids to turn to drugs.

However, the AM Vets POST 50 teamed up with Phillips Elementary fourth grade students to give kids a different type of stress relief.

Chloe Borchert was one of nearly 70 students who skipped school to fish on Solberg Lake Wednesday to enjoy the Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs program.

"I hope to catch a lot of blue gills and croppies," said Chloe.

AM Vets Commander Douglas Rasmussen says this is the 10th year the AM Vets teamed up with the school. Every year the AM Vets purchase 100 fishing rods to give out to the Price County fourth grade students.

CRANDON - The final person living at Crandon's only nursing home left last week.

Last month, AGI Healthcare announced it was closing, forcing 37 residents to find new homes and forcing 60 workers to find new jobs.

By state law, nursing homes can't close until all people have a new home.

Forest County's Economic Development office said it was unsuccessful in finding a buyer for the home.

The nursing home's owner told us in April it wasn't making enough money to stay afloat.

Many people living in Crandon moved to Nu Roc nursing home in Blackwell.
