West Nile Virus Hotline

Answer: 1-800-433-1610
Note: "The Wisconsin Division of Public Health has opened its West Nile virus hotline for reporting dead or dying crows, blue jays or ravens - a step the state hopes will help it combat a virus that can be deadly to humans. West Nile, which is transmitted most often by a mosquito bite, usually is fatal to birds, so the presence of dead birds often is a sign the virus is present in an area."

Works Progress Administration Projects in Sheboygan (WPA)

Answer: Schomer Lichtner, who died on May 9, 2006 at the age of 101, and his late wife, Ruth Grotenrath, both well-known Wisconsin artists, began their careers as muralists for WPA projects, primarily post offices. Schomer Lichtner's five-panel mural in the Sheboygan Post Office is considered to be one of his most notable works for the WPA. It was completed in 1939.

Roland Schomberg, former County Clerk, states that another project involved repairing books in the Register of Deeds office in the Court House. Another Court House project was the creation of a card file on elected officials (a card file telling who held what office for how long, etc.)
