RHINELANDER - A backhoe ripped down a part of the Oneida County Humane Society on Tuesday morning.

It's the beginning of a new, expanded shelter that will offer more resources for pets and their future families.

The shelter will add space for intake, dog quarantine, and new owner meet-and-greet.

"We've always had the need for the areas that we are going to be able to have when this is finished, but the funding was always an issue," said Humane Society Treasurer Sue Otis.

WAUPUN - The remains of an unidentified woman found in a frozen creek in Fond du Lac County nearly 10 years ago will be exhumed this week at a cemetery in Waupun.

Sheriff's officials say forensic anthropologists will examine the remains of "Jane Doe" using techniques that weren't available when her body was found. Through chemical isotope analysis, investigators may learn where the woman lived and her approximate age. DNA testing can determine eye, skin and hair color, as well as genetic ancestry and face shape.

ARBOR VITAE - You won't find Neal Anderson where he'd like to be this time of year: on a lake.  Instead, he mainly stuck in the shop taking out his frustrations on cedar boards with a saw.

"This is where you get the meaning of the term 'pier pressure,'" Anderson said.
