PLUM CITY - Many of the cards are the same, bit the deck has been completely reshuffled. The Plum City High School volleyball team lost quite a few letter winners from last season's regional championship squad which finished 25-14 overall, 6-3 in the Dunn-St. Croix Conference.
GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers’ running back DuJuan Harris will be put on the injured reserve list with a knee injury he aggravated in Friday night’s exhibition loss to Seattle. He’ll be out for the season, unless the Packers name him as their one IR player they’re allowed to bring back in the middle of the campaign. Head Coach Mike McCarthy said it’s too early to tell what Harris’ designation will be yet.
Wisconsin pheasant hunters will have more targets this fall. The state DNR says it will release 75,000 birds about a week before the pheasant season opens on October 19th. That’s almost a-third more than last year’s release of 54,000. The pheasants will be spread across 92 public properties statewide, including 22 new sites in eastern, southern, and northwest parts of the state.
Levi Wolf and Autumn Schlecht were named Pierce County Herald's first Athletes of the Week for the 2013 prep sports season. Wolf, a junior, was a one-man wrecking machine for Elmwood/Plum City's football team as they won an exciting ballgame at Frederic last week 20-13. As the Wolves starting quarterback, Wolf threw for 147 yards and rushed for 165 for a total of 312 yards of total offense alone.
MILWAUKEE - Workers at a brand new state office building in Milwaukee returned to their jobs early this afternoon, after a construction worker broke a natural gas line nearby. Governor Scott Walker had just dedicated the new Children-and-Families Department facility, when a backhoe severed a gas line close to a far corner of the building’s parking lot.
HASTINGS - Plans are underway for a new addition to the Veteran's Park baseball field. The Hastings Parks and Recreation Commission recently voiced its support for a new press box to be built behind the bleachers. Currently there is only an announcer's table present at the field, and that table is falling apart, according to the project summary presented to the PRC. Power is only available to the table by running an extension cord to it, which is a safety hazard.The press box will also provide better opportunities for Hastings to host regional and state level tournaments at the field.
MADISON - A 22-year-old man is facing the first possible felony charge stemming from a series of arrests over the refusal by anti-Walker singers to get State Capitol gathering permits.
