Story By Associated Press

MADISON - The Wisconsin Conservation Congress is gearing up for another round of annual spring hearings next month.

It's a group of influential sportsmen who advise the DNR on policy. Every April it holds hearings in all 72 counties for people to vote on suggested changes to DNR regulations.

This year's hearings are scheduled for April 8.

People can weigh in on changing sturgeon spearing hours; allowing motor trolling statewide; allowing the use of rifles for deer hunting statewide; and overnight placement of stands and blinds on DNR-owned and managed land.

WISCONSIN - Severe weather can strike at any time in north central Wisconsin. Emergency Management services encourage people to have a NOAA Weather Radio to be prepared during a storm.

Weather radios cost about $30. They are a 24 hour source of any weather warnings and information.

Emergency Management says they're very useful, especially with unpredictable Wisconsin weather.

"A NOAA Weather Radio is an all hazards weather radio," said Oneida County Emergency Management Program Assistant Dawn Robinson. "We recommend all households should have them, for lots of different reasons. Of course they're going to alert you to weather related events. They can also be alerted for other events, such as a missing child."

Emergency Management also wants people to know the radios are very easy to program and use.
