Wolf permits going fast in Upper MichiganSubmitted: 09/30/2013
Story By Associated Press

MARQUETTE - Plenty of people want a chance to hunt for wolves in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

More than 1-thousand licenses were sold over the weekend, leaving just 135 still available.

The hunt starts November 15th and runs through the end of the year.

The Michigan Natural Resources Commission is allowing 43 wolves to be killed in seven Upper Peninsula counties.

Opponents hoping to stop future hunts are gathering petition signatures for a statewide vote.

A wolf license costs 1-hundred-dollars for a Michigan resident and 5-hundred for a non-resident.

MADISON - A former high school basketball coach in central Wisconsin loses an appeal over his conviction for having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled 4-2 on Tuesday against Rory McKellips.

He's the former coach for girls' basketball at high schools in Athens and Mosinee.

He had been convicted in 2013 of using a computer to facilitate a sex crime.

That's because of cellphone contact he had with a player on the Athens High School team he coached.

The state Supreme Court said state prosecutors proved that McKellips used his cellphone as a computer to send messages to the victim.

He is serving a 10-year prison sentence.

TOMAH - The psychiatric unit at the troubled Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center should open next week, about nine months after it closed.

The VA was forced to close the unit in September because it didn't have enough health providers to staff it.  That meant 125 veterans had to be transferred to other facilities around the state.

Clinic administrators have spent the last few months recruiting staff and have hired a psychiatrist and two nurses.  That's enough to reopen the unit on a limited basis.
