Jessica Leighty/Lakeland Times

The Minocqua town crew had to set up two pumps within the Morgan Oaks Apartment Homes complex after a severe thunderstorm caused flooding throughout the complex’s parking lot.

This has been an issue in the past and the complex’s co-owner Pat Abraham brought the issue up at a town board meeting the previous day.
On Wednesday, more than 40,000 residents lost power when high winds and mass rains hit the area. According to Wisconsin Public Service (WPS), Minocqua and Rhinelander received the largest number of power outages. (subscriber access)

Congress: Demand White House transcript
If Donald Trump disclosed highly classified state secrets to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister, he may be vulnerable to impeachment - not because he broke the law, which evidently he did not, but because he committed an act that would be considered criminal and perhaps treasonous if perpetrated willfully by any other government official.

Improved health bill
The House repealed Obamacare!

OK, they didn't really - but they passed a bill that repeals some bad parts of it, like the individual mandate tax, medicine cabinet tax, flexible spending account tax and health savings account withdrawal tax. Good.

It's time to come together to improve health care for residents in Wisconsin
The Founding Fathers purposely made it difficult for elected officials to enact sweeping legislation. Our Constitution's separation of powers demands coordination and consensus to pass especially meaningful and impactful laws. For that reason, most of the significant pieces of legislation passed in the last 60 years, after lengthy debate, ultimately achieved bipartisan majorities on final passage.

Fish like a GIRL
Last week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. TJ Dunn from Rhinelander. Many know him as a veterinarian, but he is also a scientist with a great deal of knowledge about a compound known as Triclosan. This antibacterial pesticide has been given a great deal of press in recent years for its detrimental effects, both to us and to the environment. Our discussion centered around environmental factors - more specifically, fish in our inland lakes. (subscriber access)

The lake where you live
Plants which grow on land have one main way of reproducing. They produce flowers that get pollinated, then grow some form of fruit containing seeds. The seeds are dispersed in many ways, some simply scattering on the ground, some taking to the air on bits of fluff, some distributed with the help of birds and animals. (subscriber access)

Self-pity can be politically fatal
In polls of American historians conducted over the past 17 years by C-SPAN, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt have consistently ranked - along with George Washington - among the three best U.S. presidents. Yet President Lincoln was vilified in life, referred to in print as "the Illinois ape," "the Ourang-Outang at the White House," a baboon, a gorilla, a murderer and a traitor.

Security is ruining the Internet
Another major cyberattack has me thinking about European ruins. Those medieval fortresses and castles had walls 10 feet thick made of solid stone; they were guarded by mean, heavily armored men. The barbarians got in anyway.
