Election results, avian flu, and renaming Wisconsin landmarks
Election results from April 5 are in. Rhinelander, Tomahawk and Merrill will soon have new mayors. Kris Hanus, Steve Taskay and Steve Haas each won their respective mayoral elections. School referendums in Tomahawk, Elcho, Wausau and Goodman passed, while voters denied Merrill’s referendum. And at least four women will join the previously all-male Oneida County Board. Then, local wildlife rehabilitation groups change their protocol over avian flu concerns. Finally, federal officials are looking for suggestions from the public on new names for 30 geographic features in Wisconsin with names derogatory to American Indians.
