Feel free to share this on your social media. The organization Rapid Search and Rescue Corp. group up in Wisconsin Rapids have made posts for all the counties throughout Wisconsin with listed missing persons. The posts have great information to make hunters aware that there are missing people in the areas that they may be hunting in, how to prevent getting lost themselves and what to do if they get lost while out hunting. GREAT tips!!! https://www.facebook.com/RapidsSAR/posts/3590746497653360 Thank you! Jackie Kort

People that say we need to defund police or get rid of them have never been stuck 3 miles from the launch with no way to get home. Huge thank you to the Brown County Sheriff's Department. Thank you for finding us and towing us home after our engine died on the bay today. Officer Johnson and i didnt catch his partners name, were our heros today. Thank you again
Rumor has it that hate groups will be out and about tonight targeting the suburbs because the law enforcement will be in common areas such as downtown and the mall. They are also finding those who have lights on their homes that support the healthcare workers and police. Is any of this true?.
