RHINELANDER - Technology should make your life easier. But with a new gadget coming out every day it can be hard to keep up.

That's why Nicolet College offers "Tech Talks" classes to the community. They're designed to help people who are uncomfortable with new technology. Whether it's figuring out a new toy or just wanting to learn how to use software, they can tell you how at "Tech Talks".

"A lot of parents receiving gifts from their children and not knowing how to use them. Especially after Christmas what we were running was, 'Now that I have it how do I use it'. Basically a lot of people that come to these don't know how to use what they have; the potential that's there," says Todd Mountjoy, the Nicolet College Library Director.

Classes are open to anyone in the community, and they're free. The last spring session is April 11th. You can bring any technology question.

NORTHERN WISCONSIN - Deer councils in Northern Wisconsin want to see more deer. Harsh winters have decreased local deer population and harvest levels. Leaders in the Northwoods hope local changes with deer population management goals will help.

A 2012 state deer report set up local deer advisory councils. They now recommend whether to increase, maintain, or decrease deer population.

The Natural Resources Board voted and approved council plans for deer populations throughout the entire state. For northern Wisconsin counties, that means plans to increase the population.

"The biggest tool we have to manage deer populations is to increase or decrease the number of antlerless deer that are taken by hunters," said Antigo's DNR Area Wildlife Supervisor Chuck McCullough. "If we want the population to grow, we take fewer antlerless deer by hunting."
