The summer Kids Club and Opti-Club program is based out of the River Falls High School. Kids Club Supervisor Katy Killian said the kids are very busy and rarely are at the high school, instead they are on field trips, at Glen Park Pool or at the public library. The 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Friday program, has numerous options from 5-day to half-day options. Shown, from left: Adam Robey, Lilly Johnson, Sienna Johnson, and Cade Myszewski, swimming at the local pool.

Gene Huppert is pictured with the second wolf killed in the Big River area this month. He reported while deer hunting the male brown brush wolf was flushed out during a drive, was fast and evasive and after hit, rolled down a small hill snarling all the way down. Well over 200 sheep have been lost by farmers in the area and the wolves are blamed for the killings. Earlier this month a female brush wolf was caught in a trap on the Karl Kodosky farm.
