Lincoln County Continues to Participate in Wisconsin Wins Youth Tobacco Prevention
Published on 04/24/2019 under News The Lincoln County Health Department will once again participate in a summer program designed to decrease youth access to tobacco. The Wisconsin Wins project includes periodic compliance checks for retailers that sell cigarettes and other tobacco and nicotine products as well as educational outreach for retailers. Public Health Nurse Judy Sargent says, "Last year 16% of Lincoln County retailers sold tobacco products to youth. We hope to decrease that number this year by promoting trainings to retailers and increasing education on the harmful effects of electronic vaping products." Although cigarette use has decreased among Lincoln County youth, there has been a spike in those who use electronic vaping products. According to the Lincoln County 2017 Youth Health Profile, 12% of high school students reported smoking cigarettes in the past 30 days, while 23% reported using an electronic vaping product. As for the education aspect, the Wisconsin Wins project provides free online training for retailers and employees at Last year nearly 7,000 employees took part in the training, and the Lincoln County Health Department encourages all retailers to take advantage.

Merrill Residents Submit Recall Petitions Targetting Four Aldermen
Published on 04/24/2019 under News A group of Merrill residents took another step in their effort to recall half of their City Council. Yesterday, the recall committee submitted their recall petitions to City Clerk Bill Heideman. The recall effort is the largely result of a 2019 budget process that ultimately led to a larger than anticipated 7.4% tax increase. Aldermen targeted by the recall include Paul Russell, John Van Lieshout, Dave Sukow, Tim Meehean, and Council president Rob Norton. The number of required signatures varied by district based on a percentage of previous vote totals. The committee secured at least 10 signatures more than necessary for each candidate. The next step is for the Clerk's office to verify the signatures. The city has 30 days to do so. The official date of the recall won't be set until after the signatures have been verified. While potential candidates can't file papers at this time, the recall committee indicated that there are citizens interested in challenging those seats should the recall continue.

Snow, Flooding Delay Opening of CNNF Trails and Campsites
Published on 04/24/2019 under News Persistent snow and high waters will delay the traditional opening of recreation trails and some campgrounds in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Tim Vetter, a CNNF Recreation, Wilderness and Lands Program Manager says, "We recognize that visitors will be disappointed, we are monitoring conditions and working to get trails and the remaining campgrounds open as soon as possible." Crews typically spend April clearing trails and preparing sites for a May 1 opening. That includes removing hazard trees, cleaning campsite pads, and preparing water systems. Access to these trails and campgrounds for preparations has been delayed due to lingering snow pack and high water in areas. Vetter says, "As the snow melts, crews are working hard to get into recreation sites and get them open for the year. Hazard tree assessments and removals have started for places that can be accessed." Officials will continue to update the progress and conditions on their website with plans to reassess dates next week.
