Baby’s death sparks water safety fight.  (Star-Tribune, 12/26/2018)
People in the Village of Plover, Wis., saw their favorite trout stream dry up, leaving thousands of dead fish for the raccoons. Nearby, recreational lakes ringed with summer homes have periodically shriveled into wetlands over the past 15 years, depressing property values and pitting lakeshore owners against the state government in a lawsuit over the meaning of public trust. 
And Celina Stewart, a young mother in the tiny town of Nekoosa, lost an infant daughter to a fatal brain malformation that has been associated with high levels of nitrate, a fertilizer byproduct found in the community’s drinking water. Her tragedy led to a community well testing program this year, which found that 40 percent of the homes had nitrate concentrations that, like hers, were far above the legal limit.
Among Wysocki Farms other donations through the years:
  • Scott Walker ($31,126.86)
  • Committee to Elect a Republican Senate ($6,400)

Apparently, we have a case here of "it's not what you say, it's what you do".
