RHINELANDER - You can find everything from edible berries to garnishes right in your own backyard.

"Master Gardeners of the North" wants to teach you how.

Tonight's class will be on foraging for edibles in the Northwoods.

Even though edibles can be easy to find, volunteer Tom Jerow says you should leave enough behind for wildlife and next year's crop.

" You should really link up with a mentor, someone who knows what they're doing. Someone who can identify the food that you're looking for," says Jerow.

You can find nuts, grapes, and sumac pretty easily this time of year.

The Master Gardeners meet tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the Oneida County Senior Center.

NORTHWOODS - Between the 16-hour days, temperature extremes, and smoke blocking out the sun for days, Jim Grant will likely never forget this summer.

"This definitely is at the top if not the highest amount of fires I've ever seen and the busiest I've seen," said U.S. Forest Service Fire Management Officer Jim Grant. 

Grant has been fighting wildfires for 34 years. During the fire season he splits his time between the Northwoods and wherever he's needed. This summer, that meant Montana. 

"I want to help the people and I care about the communities," said Grant.

MERRILL - The Merrill Fire Department has a new high-tech fire extinguisher training device.

It allows users to put out a fire without using an actual fire.

Firefighter Bryson Cruise says this is much easier and safer because the old device could only be taught with a real fire outside.

"The screen is reactive to the laser inside the extinguisher and it simulates the fire with both light and sound," explained Cruise.

The device was a gift from three of Merrill's largest businesses, Church Mutual Insurance Company, Weinbrenner Shoe Company and Park City Credit Union.

RHINELANDER - Between 2004 and 2013, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest (CNNF) sold and cut just above half of what it could under its own management plan.

That frustrated loggers, politicians, and companies which need timber in northern Wisconsin.

But this year, the CNNF will sell its greatest amount of timber since at least the mid-1990s. It's the fifth increase in a row for the CNNF, which is now finally nearing its maximum yield.
