  • Bayfield's Dead Crows Two dead crows in Northwestern Wisconsin have tested positive for West Nile Virus.  The Bayfield County Health Department says one was found in Red Cliff, the other in Barnes. These are the first two confirmed birds that have tested positive for West Nile virus in Bayfield County since tracking of the mosquito-transmitted virus began on May first.  While over 80-percent of people who contract the virus don't get seriously ill, it can still be deadly in some cases. A health officer for the county said people should be more attentive to safety measures to prevent mosquito bites.

  • Rusk County Hospital Closer To New Ownership A Rusk County hospital is one step closer to having a new owner. The Rusk County Board of Supervisors has approved a Letter of Intent to sell the Rusk County Memorial Hospital in Ladysmith, and the Clinic at Riverside to Marshfield Clinic Health System. In exchange, Marshfield Clinic Health System will build a new health care campus in Rusk County within the next five years. Health officials say the Letter of Intent is an important step in finalizing a partnership between Marshfield Clinic, Rusk County and health officials. The board says it followed months of negotiations and in-depth study regarding opportunities to grow and sustain critical access hospital and health care services locally.

But while both of Wisconsin's U.S. Senators and all eight of the state's U.S. Representatives spoke out against the violence, some were more pointed than others, and some were more critical of President Donald Trump's response.
