Here Come Ticket Scams
(AP) The Wisconsin Better Business Bureau is warning Packer fans to be wary of scammers selling playoff tickets. The bureau says sports fans can be easily scammed when buying tickets outside the stadium, on the street or through online auctions, classified ads and bulletin boards.
Wisconsin BBB President Randall Hoth says fans can get burned by purchasing counterfeit tickets or paying in advance for tickets that never arrive. The BBB recommends checking with its database that includes reputable, secondary market ticket firms. It also recommends looking for the BBB logo on broker's websites and to click on it to ensure it's real.
If using an online auction site, they recommend looking for sellers with a recent and long history of satisfied customers.

Mike Huebsch thinks so. The state secretary of administration believes the heated battles of the last two years cooled down quickly, once Scott Walker won that special recall race.
Speaking on WIZM's La Crosse Talk, Huebsch said the next state budget should not have many surprises in it. Governor Walker is putting together that budget now, to be brought to the legislature in February. Huebsch expects training for new jobs to be a high priority for state government.
