Packers to play 3 games on Newswatch 12Submitted: 04/18/2013
Story By Green Bay Packers

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers' 93rd NFL regular-season schedule highlighted by four prime-time games (subject to flexible scheduling) and a Thanksgiving contest at Detroit was released this evening by the National Football League.

Three of those prime-time battles can be seen on Newswatch 12. On October 27, the Packers face the Vikings in the Twin Cities. Another Sunday night road test is at the New York Giants on November 17. And Green Bay will host Atlanta December 8. The Giants and Falcons games however are subject to flexible scheduling and could change.


Green Bay's schedule includes six games against 2012 playoff teams, with three of those contests (Atlanta, Minnesota, Washington) at Lambeau Field and three on the road (Cincinnati, Minnesota, San Francisco). The Packers will travel to play both of the teams that played in Super Bowl XLVII (Baltimore and San Francisco).

The Packers have two prime-time contests at home (vs. Chicago on Monday Night Football in Week 9 and against Atlanta on Sunday night in Week 14) and two on the road (Sunday night contests at Minnesota in Week 8 and at the N.Y. Giants in Week 11). Green Bay plays at Detroit on Thanksgiving for the fourth time in the past seven seasons (also 2007, 2009 and 2011).

Green Bay opens the regular season vs. the 49ers for the second straight year and at San Francisco for the first time in franchise history. It marks only the second time under Head Coach Mike McCarthy that the Packers will open their season away from Lambeau Field (also 2010 at Philadelphia).

The Packers' bye arrives in Week 4, the earliest their open date has come on the schedule since they had a Week 4 bye in 1999.

For the first time since entering the National Football League in 1921, Green Bay does not have back-to-back road games on its schedule.

The Packers' lone NFC North contest in the final month of the season comes in Week 17 at Chicago, the second time under McCarthy (also 2006) that Green Bay has closed out the regular season at Soldier Field.

Dates and times for Green Bay's preseason games have also been finalized.

NORTHWOODS - Most of Northern Wisconsin was too cloudy to make out the partial solar eclipse Thursday evening. A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and the earth. The last partial solar eclipse that could be seen in Northern Wisconsin was more than 10 years ago. Calculations for when and where solar eclipses occur are quite precise, according to local astronomer and planetarium owner Frank Kovac.

"The solar system is like a clock," explained Kovac. "We can predict eclipses many years out and it is very geometric, it's very mathematical."

International group considers Wisconsin one of four most improved states in energy efficiency Submitted: 10/23/2014

WISCONSIN - An international energy efficiency group ranked Wisconsin in the top four most improved states in the U.S. when it comes to energy efficiency.

American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) is an international non-profit. The group pushes for better energy efficiency around the world.

They ranked Wisconsin 23rd in the U.S. last year, but Wisconsin made their most improved list for 2014.

"A shift in efficiency administrators had caused a temporary drop in saving," ACEEE State Policy Research Analyst Annie Gilleo said. "We are seeing that Wisconsin is once again realizing consistent levels of electricity and natural gas savings."
