Feingold Flagged By NFL
In the ad, Feingold said his Republican opponent Ron Johnson and special interests are quote, “dancing in the end zone, because they think they’re going to take down the U-S Senator who has been named the number-one enemy of Washington lobbyists.” The ad shows football players dancing in the end zone. The only recognizable N-F-L footage shows Randy Moss “mooning” the Green Bay crowd in a 2005 playoff game.
League spokesman Greg Aiello said Feingold’s camp did not get a license to use the footage – and it contacted the campaign about removing it.
Monroe County Back At It
The debate over a new Monroe County Justice center is back. A new justice center proposal was supposed to provide some answers,but after reviewing the plan last week, county board supervisors still have a lot of questions.
County board supervisors are going back to the drawing board, in hopes of finding a new option for a justice center that Monroe county residents will approve of. In the new plans being proposed, the justice center would be added on to the current court house instead of abandoning the building like in the old plan.
Heim: Feingold Behind But Not Out
One month out from election day, Senator Russ Feingold has some ground to make up if he wants to keep his US senate seat. The Wisconsin democrat appears behind Republican challenger Ron Johnson in a few polls. UWL political analyst Joe Heim says the lead is not surprising considering the amount of money Johnson has dumped into campaign advertising. He says Johnson's polling lead now could diminish as Feingold's campaign puts more money into the race during the last few weeks.

Balance Sheet Healthy for State Health Program
No bells and whistles in this state health insurance program. Wisconsin's Badger Care Plus Basic program. $130 a month. A limited number of doctor visits. Generic drugs only. But is there a market for that kind of thing? Appears to be, says Rachel Currans-Sheehan with the state's Wisconsin health department, because the plan now covers about 35 hundred people. A new report says the three month old Plus Basic plan is in good shape; covering those 35 hundred on small premiums without tax dollars and still remaining financially sound.
