Packers sign first round pick
Story By NFL.com

GREEN BAY - NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Datone Jones has signed with the Green Bay Packers.

It's a four-year deal worth $7.716 million with the first three years guaranteed, Rapoport reported per a source who has seen the contract.

Jones was taken No. 26 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft to help fix Green Bay's sagging defensive line. He was one of our favorite picks in the draft because of his versatility. Jones can rush the passer and is an effective run stopper who can move inside and out on the defensive line depending on whether the Packers want to use a three-man front or a four-man front.

CONOVER -
June Dairy Month isn't just for the cows; it's for goats, too!

Hillbilly Hollow in Conover specializes in goat milk products, especially all types of cheese.

Kathy Martin makes around 35 flavors of soft goat cheese, along with other artisan cheese.

She says the calories are much less than regular cow milk cheese.

"I've had goat cheese that was absolutely horrible. Had it been my first try I would never try it again. BUT they're not all created equal. It's just like with cheddars or anything, sometimes you don't get one as good as another one. Just keep trying."

Hillbilly Hollow just opened a brand new store in Eagle River with all of its goat products.
