MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin wildlife officials say a pipeline construction project could kill members of several threatened and endangered species. Wisconsin Gas LLC wants to construct a new 74-mile natural gas lateral that would run from an existing pipeline in Eau Claire or Clark County to Tomah. The Department of Natural Resources says the project could result in incidental taking of the threatened prairie leafhopper; the endangered phlox moth; the threatened frosted elfin, a type of butterfly; and the threatened wood turtle. The agency is taking public comments on the authorization through September 9th.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin apple growers say they expect their crop this autumn to be good or a little above average. A Wisconsin State Journal report says growers were concerned after last year's unusually heavy harvest. But this year's crop is shaping up to be more in line with previous harvests.

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (AP) - A Chippewa Falls man whose daughter nearly died after eating a marijuana-laced chocolate bar faces three criminal charges. A Chippewa Herald report says 38-year-old Jason Hetke is charged with felony second-degree reckless endangerment.

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - Liquor licenses in Oshkosh have been in high demand for the last 40 years, so city officials are a little surprised that no one is applying for three licenses that have been available for a while. An Oshkosh Northwestern Media report says the city's Common Council plans to wait and see whether the business community develops any proposals for the licenses.
