Despite previous setbacks, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is trying to open up another quiet northern woodland to motorized off-road vehicles.But this time the DNR plans to use a less-formal approach that allows an agency administrator to make the decision rather than running it through the department’s policy board.The DNR last month told an association of area property owners that an agency administrator would decide whether to approve a trail in the Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area.That’s a switch from a previously announced plan for the decision to be made with a public vote by the department’s policy board, which has been in the middle of controversy over new motorized trails for months.The Turtle Flambeau Flowage and Trude Lake Property Owners Association has opposed the all-terrain vehicle trail, saying it would mean noise, dust and damage to wildlife that is incompatible with the recreation area’s mission of preserving a wild and scenic … [Read more...] about Despite setbacks, Wisconsin tries another way to expand ATV use in park
That Milan is a fashion hub probably hasn’t escaped anyone who knows the definition of fashionable. Wherever one looks, one is met by pompous folk wearing clothes costing more than the BMW I had at my disposable. Our test car was equipped with the Luxury Line package which accentuates the 5-series’ (you guessed it) luxurious side. In the sea of black Mercs, a gray 5 Series manages to stick out. It’s undeniably a stylish car. Even if the 5 Series doesn’t have as much aplomb or expresses as much success as its sibling, it’s vital to take an extra look just to ensure oneself that it is, in fact, a 5 Series. “Fake it ‘til you make it” seems like the suitable expression in this context even though I never felt like I brought the car out of its comfort zone, not even in Milan’s most exclusive neighborhoods. In other words, the 5 Series is as elegant as the 7 Series. After having acted swank in a car that was not my own, it was … [Read more...] about Finding “7” in a BMW Series
Your smartphone might seem as essential at work as anywhere else.Your employer might disagree.While most workers own mobile phones and keep them within sight, some employers see them as productivity killers and a few are banning or otherwise regulating them, experts say.Three-quarters of employers polled in a recent Career Builder survey said two or more hours a day are lost in productivity because of distractions such as texting, the internet, social media and email, along with the more traditional time killers such as smoke breaks, visits from co-workers or office gossip. Fifty-five percent cited phones and texting for decreasing productivity, more than any other distraction.The employers' perceptions reflect a growing problem that signals trouble beyond individual businesses, said Michael Erwin, a CareerBuilder senior career adviser."We do have a smartphone problem in our country," Erwin said. "In the workforce, you're going to see employers taking more and more steps."The survey, … [Read more...] about Do smartphones hurt productivity?

Carrying out a car history check is vital, but it’s worth knowing what information you will receive and where to find out other important details about a car you want to buy. When you know which car you are interested in, you can tap its registration number into a variety of car history checkers. These vary in price from a couple of quid to more expensive ones at around £20. Generally, the more expensive the check, the more detailed the information on the car and its previous life. Even so, a low-cost check should tell you if the car has been stolen, written-off or has outstanding finance still to be paid off. If one or more of these items is flagged up by a search, it should ring alarm bells. If a car shows as being stolen, you should … [Read more...] about Some simple used car checks
