Milwaukee schools gain 1,600 students MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee public schools have at least 1,600 more students than last year, despite a sharp increase in the number of students using schol arships to attend private schools. There are S8,4b cnuaren enrolled in the district, 461 more than projected, according to preliminary ngures irom uie annual inira-rn-day cojmt. That figure doesn't include Chapter 220 students. Deer thriving, making From B-1 attractive to deer, who tend to move along the edges of woodlots and fields and who are especially fond of roadside plantings. The roads create a lot of edge," said Bill Mytton, the state's chief deer ecologist "And there's nothing a deer likes better than a freshly fertilized piece of shrubbery or clover. It's new and it's freshly mowed." Deer are also pulled closer to traffic in the winter by their attraction to road salt. Exacerbating the problem, there are now an estimated 1.5 million deer in Wisconsin, more than at any other time in history. Deer in southern and central coun Police here expand their cultural horizon From B-1 There are fewer women in police work, and women officers wear skirts, relfecting a more traditional culture, Gleiss said. The country has a 100 literacy rate and immigration is closely regulated. There seem to be fewer repeat problems, Gross said, and punishment is swift and harsh, Elliott said. "Their holding cells are four cement walls, a cement floor and a wooden door with a hole in it. That would be a lawsuit right away" in the U.S., Elliott said. The officers seemed well paid and more upper-middle class, and that status is reflected in polls that make police officers among the most respected professionals in New Zealand, they said. Polls usually rank them with doctors in respect, behind only nurses and well above some professionals like politicians and lawyers. Police officers can't be sued, and assaulting an officer is a rare and serious crime. Those factors also may contribute to what the travelers felt was a lower stress level than U.S. officers face. The foreign officers' expectations of the visitors is based on what they see on television, and while the officers didn't feel defensive, they did feel they had to spend time with many officers to tell them that not all U. S. police are like the ones on the news from Los Angeles, or the ones depicted on the New Zea-landers' favorite show, Cops. Youth football clinic set this morning MENASHA - A free football clinic for youth in grades 4-6 will be held 8:30-10 a.m. today at the practice field behind Menasha High School.

BEAM CENTRAL s799 !! INSTALLED AROUND (i S22 Ml SB WE DELIVER FOX VALLEY BUILDERS SUPPLY 2155 W. NORDALE DRIVE APPLETON (414) 739-7477 ties have experienced few severe winters in recent years. Deer survival drops during prolonged periods of deep snow and freezing temperatures. "Certainly, in many of the agricultural areas, we would like to see fewer deer Mytton said, "and we are trying to manage for that goal" The task is not easy. Wildlife managers control the size of the herd by the number of hunting permits issued to shoot does. But in the southern two thirds of the state, the herd has grown so large there are not enough hunters to reverse the trend. Thousands of ant-lerless deer permits go unclaimed. "The number of deer has gotten to the point that the supply outstrips "It's embarrassing. You had to clarify perceptions," Gross said. Gleiss and Gross plan to visit officers in Italy and Greece next spring, while Elliott and his wife plan to use IPA contacts for a Canadian trip. All of them hope to be among an Appleton Police Department contingent that goes to Appleton's sister city, Kurgan, Russia, in September, 1996. diannaSchroeder 10-7-38 2-12-94 Always Together Never Apart, Maybe In Distance Never In Heart.

"The typical family doesn't want four or five deer in the freezer. They are happy with one or two." Other states, like Illinois, have resorted to professionals to control deer numbers, and a team of two or three hunters will kill thousands of deer. Such a plan would be wildly unpopular in Wisconsin where deer are considered a natural resource. But a proposal by the DNR several years ago to reduce the herd by lengthening the state's traditional nine-day gun deer hunt was greeted by massive public and political opposition. This is a state that is very strong in traditions," Mytton said. "It is ex tremely difficult to make changes here that would be simple in some other places." In any case, Mytton said, much of the land to the south is private and is hunted only by the family and friends of the owner. Access to good land for other hunters is limited. DNR officials say the problem is even worse than figures from the transportation study indicate. Car-deer crashes reported by the driver, not a police officer, were not included, and many such crashes go V Shirley Clemmons BCHIS We are pleased to announce that Shirley Clemmons has joined our staff, bringing with her more than fourteen year's experience helping people to hear better.

In 1993, there were 22,819 deer-" vehicle accidents reported, but DNR records showed 36,700 deer car- '. casses picked up from roads and: highways. Many other accidents are not counted because the driver swerved, avoiding the deer but crashing into othervehicles or the ditch. At night, when most of these crashes occur, the driver might first notice a glint of light in the ditch; a reflection from the deer's eyes. Since deer often cross a road in groups,. Woldseth said, drivers should slow,'? blow their horn and be prepared t6 stop. Compounding the safety problem is the sleek shape of many modem vehicles. Sheriffs deputies report more deer are crashing into wind- shields because the vehicles are low" er and smaller with sloping front ends. Despite this concern, Woldseth ' said drivers should avoid swerving? out of their traffic lanes. Z "One of the things we tell people is not to make a deer crash worse," he; said. "It is possible for someone to J swerve around a deer and crash, head-on into an oncoming vehicle. In.1 most cases, you are better off taking ' out the deer." Help is in SIGHT!
