Apply to be Alice in Dairyland!

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is seeking a communications professional eager to help Wisconsin residents make meaningful connections with Wisconsin agriculture as the 73rd Alice in Dairyland! Individuals interested in applying may submit applications through Monday, Feb. 3, 2020. Application materials and information are available on DATCP’s website.

In the words of Wisconsin’s 72nd Alice in Dairyland, “Applying to serve as Alice in Dairyland is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Being Wisconsin’s agricultural ambassador has allowed me to share the story of our state’s $104.8 billion agriculture industry with many diverse audiences across the state. It’s also broadened my own view of agriculture and deepened my appreciation for the industry.”

In this highly visible, fast-paced position, Alice in Dairyland cultivates relationships with television, radio, and print media outlets; writes and delivers speeches at events large and small; and leverages social media to promote Wisconsin agriculture.

With Hospitalizations on the Rise, DHS Wants to avoid a More Deadly Flu Season

Residents encouraged to get flu shots and take other precautions to avoid serious illness

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) today announced our state has seen 459 hospitalizations for influenza this season, more than three times as many than at this time last year. Admissions to intensive care units for respiratory illnesses are also on the rise. And already, 11 Wisconsinites have died due to complications from influenza.

“These hospitalizations and deaths are a sober reminder that flu is not only dangerous; it can be deadly,” said State Health Officer Jeanne Ayers. “That’s why we urge all Wisconsinites to get flu shots, not only to protect themselves, but also everyone around them from serious illness. If you have yet to get your flu shot, it is not too late.”

Wisconsin Fun Fact

At 1,951 feet above sea level, Timm's Hill is the highest point in Wisconsin located in north-central Wisconsin in Timms Hill County Park in the Town of Hill in Price County. At this scenic park you can climb the observation tower for a 30-mile view of the vast Northwoods. To the south you'll look down on placid Bass Lake 160 feet below. Amenities at the park include a boat landing, fishing pier, picnic tables, grills, swimming beach, play equipment, reservable shelter w/ electric, pressure water from mid-April to mid-October, vaulted toilets, and nearby trails for mountain biking, hiking, hunting, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and skijoring. The trails are multi-use and non-motorized, including 9 miles of looping trails near Timm's Hill County Park which connect to the National Ice Age Trail and Rib Lake Trails. Timm's Hill can also be accessed in the winter via a snowmobile/winter ATV & UTV trail and cross-country ski/snowshoe trail. The park is located on Rustic Road 62. (via TravelWisconsin)
