Student videos show off national forest
RHINELANDER - The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest turns 80 this year.

But forest leaders want to make sure its publicity looks fresh and new.

"We were looking for ways to let people know about the National Forest, and make people aware that its right here, and for you to use as public lands, and so we wanted to do that in a creative way to hit a demographic that didn't know about the National Forest," says Suzanne Flory with the National Forest.

Students studying graphic design at Nicolet College showed off their promotional video projects for the first time Monday.

Seven videos from five students took hundreds of hours to make.

"I think what struck a chord with me with this particular project is I'm a user of the Chequamegon National Forest. This is my 15th year as a resident here in Rhinelander," says Jeff Koser, a student in the program.

The videos will be used on the National Forest's website and YouTube to promote recreation in the forest.

You can get your first look at the videos at the Forest Service open house.

That's the evening of April 25 at the Forest Office in Rhinelander.

BARRON - Update:

Authorities say a Wisconsin teenager who has been missing since her parents were found dead in their home isn't a runaway and that they think she's in danger.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said during a media briefing Tuesday that he can't reveal why authorities believe 13-year-old Jayme Closs is in danger because it could compromise the investigation. But he repeated his plea for the public's help in finding her.

Deputies responding to a 911 call found the bodies of 56-year-old James Closs and 46-year-old Denise Closs at around 1 a.m. Monday in their home in the western Wisconsin town of Barron. No cause of death has been released but authorities said gunshots had been fired.
