UP: Golden eagles. A population of about 100 golden eagles - previously thought rare in Wisconsin - is discovered to regularly spend its winters in the western part of the state, along the borders of Minnesota and Iowa. This area has long been a known habitat for bald eagles; scientists say it's highly unlikely that the golden eagles are just bald eagles with comb-overs.
DOWN: The Wisconsin Professional Police Association. Sheriff's deputies in Columbia County find two WPPA officers intoxicated at the scene of an accident. The WPPA's finance director, Jean Steinhauer, had crashed her car into a shed and called James Palmer, the association's executive director, for help. Palmer allegedly blew a 0.146% in a breathalyzer and Steinhauer a 0.15%. Both were later charged with first-offense operating while under the influence. Palmer issues a public apology, saying, "I deeply regret my actions."
