DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 10 AM

The National Weather Service issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for all of West Michigan until 10 AM.  Fog may linger in some locations until midday.  Light winds, ample moisture near the ground are encouraging the formation of dense fog.  Because temperatures are near freezing, a light coating of ice may form on some road surfaces making them slick.  Please keep it safe this morning as you head back to work and school.

VERONA, Wis. (AP) - There's a good chance that many of the trendy vegetables foodies latch on to in the next decade will come from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
    
Plant breeders at other public universities focus on improving field corn, soybeans and other crops used in food manufacturing.
    
Those in Madison are working on producing better-tasting vegetables.
    
Horticulture professor Julie Dawson is leading a project in which breeders work with local farmers and chefs to determine what makes vegetables taste great.
    
Participating chefs taste and evaluate boxes of produce every week for qualities like sweetness and texture.
    
One is Dan Bonanno, who estimates he's tasted 80 different tomatoes since mid-July and says he never knew there were so many varieties.
