Planting dozens of ash trees in the town of Onalaska years ago may have been a 'mistake,' according to one of the men who helped make it happen.

John Haese is now helping the town treat those trees with chemicals, to keep the trees from being killed by the emerald ash borer. Haese says town leaders should have planted a wider variety of trees in the past...and he's urging them to do that now.  The ash borer has not been detected yet in the town of Onalaska. Haese is planning to use the chemical treatment on the ash trees for the second straight year.  He says the ash borer was not a threat in the U.S. until it was brought here from other countries about 10 years ago.

Big Fire Rages On

Written by

 

(AP) More than 80 fire departments are battling an eight-alarm fire at a factory in southeastern Wisconsin. The fire at the Echo Lake Foods processing plant in Burlington has been raging since 6 p.m. Wednesday. Burlington Mayor Bob Miller says the plant was evacuated and there are no injuries either to employees or firefighters.

At news conference early Thursday, Miller said police have evacuated 10 homes in the area and one apartment building. The mayor says the 70,000 square-foot plant has had a number of additions over the years, making the fire difficult to fight.

Hazardous materials handlers are keeping tabs on the plant's ammonia and liquid oxygen tanks. Miller says the area where the hazardous materials are stored has been secured. Echo Lakes Foods produces eggs and egg products, as well as other breakfast products.

Minnesota Department of Corrections spokesman John Schadl says one contract employee and a prison guard were taken to a local hospital Wednesday after an altercation and later released. Schadl says two additional employees suffered minor injuries and did not require hospital treatment.

Orchestra Plays On

Written by

 

(AP) Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra may be locked out, but that's not stopping them from celebrating the orchestra's Grammy nomination.

 

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and Minnesota Orchestra benefactor Judy Dayton will host a community celebration of the orchestra's Grammy nomination Friday night at the Minneapolis Convention Center Auditorium.

Music director Osmo Vanska will conduct musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra in a performance of Jean Sibelius' Symphonies Nos. 2 and 5. The orchestra's performance of those symphonies is nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Orchestral Performance.

Management locked out the musicians on Oct. 1 after the two sides failed to reach agreement on a new contract. The Minnesota Orchestra has canceled concerts through mid-February.

The Grammys will be presented Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.
