How far up did Wisconsin's open records scandal go? All the way to the top. There is now evidence Governor Scott Walker was among those pushing to shield lawmakers from...
Instead of attending parties or watching football games, members of Congress spent their New Year's holiday trying to dodge a financial disaster.
Both the Senate and House voted yesterday to avoid that dreaded "fiscal cliff," even though the apparent deadline had passed. Congressman Ron Kind of La Crosse says, let's not do that again, calling last-minute late-night votes a "lousy way" to run a country.

The list of candidates in a special recall election in La Crosse now includes Audrey Kader, and...well, that's it.
The filing deadline for the January 29th recall race in the 11th Council district is 5 p.m. today. But by late this morning, no challengers to Kader had filed papers in the city clerk's office. Local tea party members are backing the recall drive against the city council president, claiming that Kader wants to keep the public from speaking out at council meetings. Potential candidates were not able to start collecting signatures until late last week.
Six years ago, a lot of people in La Crosse County wanted to be a judge.
In 2007, three new circuit judges were elected, all after hotly contested campaigns. But this year, it looks like those judges will all be guaranteed new terms. With one day left to file papers, no one has stepped forward to run against Todd Bjerke, Scott Horne, Elliott Levine...or Ramona Gonzalez, who's going for her fourth term. Two other area judges...Todd Ziegler in Monroe County, and John Damon in Trempealeau County...also are unopposed. A state Supreme Court primary is in the works, with two challengers facing Justice Pat Roggensack.

The main show happens tonight at 12 o'clock, but there's also the early Skyrockers performance at 6 p-m.
