MADISON - Wisconsinites who get federal unemployment will see their benefits drop by nearly 11 percent because of automatic budget cuts.
The state Department of Workforce Development said about 30-thousand people will be affected starting the week of April 7th. The reductions will continue at least through September 30th-- the end of the federal fiscal year.
As an example-- the department said the maximum weekly payment of $363 will fall to $324.
Eligibility rules remain the same. The department says people who receive jobless benefits from the state will not be affected.
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.
