New United Way Program Getting Response


Fond du Lac Area United Way Director Tina Potter says they are having success with a new initiative that appeals to those who give to the United Way. Those who give $104 during the campaign or $2 a week will be entered into a drawing. Top prizes are $2,000, $1,000 and three $500 prizes. The drawing will happen on January 17th. So how many are taking advantage of this new way of giving? She says almost $25,000 in new giving has occurred since they implemented the new program, which she says they are very thankful for. The money for the drawing was donated by Mike Shannon of Holiday Automotive who is the United Way’s Honorary Campaign Chair.


Don’t Trespass & Hunt


As you ramp up your hunting this long Thanksgiving weekend be sure that you have permission to be on the land that you hunt.  Sergeant Jeff Bonack of the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department reminds you to be sure it’s OK to be where you are at even if you’ve been there before.  He says sometimes land ownership changes so you don’t want to be caught trespassing.   He says an initial trespassing ticket will cost you $263.50. Bonack adds that even if you are trailing a deer you shot onto someone’s land it’s a good idea let the land owner know what you are doing.
