Minnesota drivers are slightly more likely to hit a deer on state roadways this year compared to last year, and Wisconsin drivers face about the same odds of a deer collision. That's the report from State Farm Insurance, which complies an annual list of the states where drivers are most likely to hit a deer, moose or elk. Minnesota again placed seventh out of the 50 states, with Wisconsin sixth, South Dakota fifth and North Dakota 11th.

The members of the National Academy of Sciences, including 30 Nobel laureates, said U.S policy must stand with the global climate accord struck in Paris in December and supported by the Obama administration.
Have you noticed how warm it's been lately? Your trees probably have. The slow onset of fall color this season may be in part due to the unusually warm September across much of the Northland. With most days in the 70s and nights in the 50s, Duluth temperatures have averaged more than four degrees above normal so far in September, and that may be tricking some trees into thinking it's still summer.
