Wisconsin raised a few eyebrows by doing away with the minimum age for mentored hunting last week.

Some people were worried at the prospect of little kids out in the woods, adult mentors or not.  But Chief Conservation Warden of the WI DNR, Todd Schaller, says statistics show young hunters have a better safety record than older, more experienced ones.


Citizens of Superior will get to decide if they want to ask the legislature and the Governor if existing exposition district legislation can be applied to a smaller market city in the state.


Essentially, Superior wants to use the same kind of public-private partnership that was approved for Milwaukee.  It's never been done in a smaller city in Wisconsin before, but it could mean a convention center-style venue in the downtown and all the other things that go along with it: new places to eat, to stay and more reasons for businesses and people to come to town.
