Deputies Look For Missing Man
A Monroe County man who was involved in an accident then fled the scene...is now missing. According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, 20 year Gene Cloud Jr. of Tomah, was last seen a week ago near Millston after his vehicle slid off the roadway and he ran into the woods. After the accident near Millston, Cloud ran into the woods after a deputy asked him for his driver's license. It was later found that he also had a warrant fo his arrest. Deputies tried to track the man with a bloodhound last weekend after some of his friends and family reported they had not heard from him. He was seen a short time later walking on a county highway, but his whereabouts since then are unknown. Deputies issued citations to Cloud for driving without a valid license and driving too fast for conditions.
GAB Posts Petitions Online
Since the Government Accountability Board decided to post recall petitions online Tuesday night, the GAB website has had over 54 thousand unique unique visitors to the site and over 1.2 million page hits....and it's growing. GAB Director, Kevin Kennedy, was asked if he thought the posting of petitions would be big.
In an online interview with Wisconsin Eye, Kennedy says it has not been a popular choice though with people concerned about privacy issues and they even fielded a call from the ACLU wanting more information about how they would post the petitions online.
Cullen Drops Out Of Governors Race
And then there was one.....for now. That's the latest count when looking at democratic challengers to the governor's post. Senator Tim Cullen of Janesville dropped out Wednesday.
He also said he cannot raise the $1 million to $2 million he believes is needed to deliver his message against other candidates with more resources and better name recognition. That leaves, for now, Kathleen Falk as the only declared candidate.
