Taylor County
authorities say a hunter was killed and another injured after being hit by a
vehicle on Friday evening. The County Sheriff's Office says the two men - both
from Roscoe, Illinois – were standing near County Line Road, about nine miles
west of Gilman, when they were struck by a passing vehicle at a high rate of
speed. One of the hunters, a 53-year-old, was declared dead on the scene. The
other, a 52-year-old, was taken to the hospital with leg injuries. The driver of
the vehicle, a 42-year-old Sheldon resident, was also hospitalized. Authorities
say alcohol may have been a contributing
factor.

Funeral plans have
been revealed for a 50-year-old comic actor and writer who died while hunting in
Wisconsin. Family members of Jay Leggett announced his funeral will be held on
December 7 in Tomahawk. Leggett appeared on various t-v shows, including "In
Living Color" and "N-Y-P-D Blue". He also was a writer and producer in several
movies. He died while hunting at a family cabin in Tomahawk on November 23... the
first day of deer season.

The Wisconsin
Supreme Court has suspended the license of a Wausau lawyer who allegedly asked
his client to buy him pot. Ronald Moore, who pleaded no contest to several
ethics violations, was suspended from legal practice for three years and ordered
to pay over one-thousand dollars in court costs. According to court records, the
55-year-old attorney gave his unidentified client 400-dollars to purchase an
ounce of marijuana in February. He is also accused of tipping off the same
client about a potential police raid at his
house.

Some good news for
dairy farmers in the state. A new study from the U-S Department of Agriculture
shows butter consumption has reached a 40-year high in consumption and
production. Last year, over one-point-eight billion pounds of butter was
produced in the U-S... well over 2004's total of just over a billion. Experts say
the shift from margarine and substitute to real butter is mainly due to the
movement of more natural foods. Thanksgiving through New Year's Day is the
golden time of the year for butter, where an estimated 40-percent of all
consumption and sales take place.
