Bridge Takes Longer Then Hoped

Written by

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) State officials hope to reopen a sagging Green Bay bridge by early next year.

Mark Gottlieb is the secretary of the state Department of Transportation. He said Tuesday the agency will be putting out bids that call for work to be completed by Jan. 17. He says there will be incentives for finishing earlier and penalties for missing the deadline.

The Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge has been closed since Sept. 25 when it was found to be sagging about 2 feet. The bridge has sunk another three-quarters of an inch since then.

Officials say they hope for work to begin Nov. 4. They say the effort will involve drilling down and sinking structural shafts into underlying bedrock.

They say four piers that have shown signs of corrosion will be reinforced.

Less Money Coming For Heating Assistance

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin is expected to get less federal money this year to help pay for the heating bills of low income residents.

The Wisconsin Department of Administration says the average heating benefit this season is expected to be $227. That compares with $337 last season.

The heating assistance is available now through May 15. Eligibility is based on household income, household size and the home's heating cost. A family of four must earn less than $47,485 to qualify. An individual can earn no more than $24,692.

The state estimates that about 215,000 people will qualify.

Applications can be made through county social service offices, tribal governments, and private nonprofit agencies.

Walker Mum On Investigation

Written by

MILWAUKEE (AP) Gov. Scott Walker isn't saying much about a new secret criminal investigation, but he is questioning the timing of when news broke about the probe.

Walker would not say Monday during a stop at Beechwood Sales and Service in New Berlin whether he, his attorneys or any staff members have been contacted. His spokesman referred questions to Walker's campaign, which did not respond to requests for comment from The Associated Press.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel first reported on the new investigation Monday. On Tuesday, the Journal Sentinel reported that Walker deflected questions about the probe, saying he didn't want to get ``pulled into'' because of the investigation's secrecy rules.

Walker says he expects stories like that to start coming out now that he has a Democratic opponent.

One of La Crosse's earliest Riverfest Commodores has died...

Lee Snapp was known as a past president of the La Crosse Convention Bureau, and for work at the Heileman brewery and in local radio. Snapp was chosen as Commodore for the 1988 Riverfest. Fellow Commodore Art Fahey says 'the Snapper' set a good example for the future royalty of Riverfest in promoting the festival.

Fahey calls Snapp a 'larger than life' guy.
