MADISON TREE CANOPY
MADISON, Wis. — A task force that has been at work for a year will soon have recommendations for preserving, diversifying and expanding Madison’s tree canopy. City Forester Marla Eddy says a healthy canopy can improve aesthetics, remove air pollutants, lower home heating and cooling costs and raise property values. The nine-member Urban Forestry Task Force should have final recommendations for city consideration early next year. SENT: 270 words.
MADISON, Wis. — It’s time for the annual rivalry game for Paul Bunyan’s Axe between Minnesota and Wisconsin. The rivalry has been pretty one-sided with the Badgers having won 14 straight in the series. But Wisconsin isn’t taking this week lightly, and coach Paul Chryst’s team is also looking to get star running back Jonathan Taylor across the 2,000-yard plateau for the season. Minnesota is 5-6, so an upset would not only end the losing streak but make the team bowl eligible. By Genaro C. Armas. SENT: 800 words.
