Today in 1996: Sixteen protesters are arrested in a winter blockade of the rural Wisconsin site, in the Chequamegon National Forest, of the U.S. Navy’s Extremely Low Frequency, or ELF transmitter, which communicated one-way with deeply submerged U.S. submarines.
Nearly 400 were arrested in 24 actions opposing ELF between 1991 and 1996.

Wintertime in Wisconsin can be a difficult time for everyone, as snow and ice can make it difficult to get around. One aspect of winter is often overlooked – accessibility for people with disabilities. Everyone can establish accessibility for neighbors with visual and mobile impairments by clearing ice and snow from sidewalks and curb cuts.
