Super Candidate Black Listing?

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A candidate for state superintendent of schools says he is not blacklisting five reporters in Wisconsin, despite a memo from a former staffer that said he would not grant interviews with those on the list.

Don Pridemore said Monday that the staff member who put together the December memo misunderstood a conversation about the reporters. Pridemore says his intention was to deal directly with those reporters and not allow staff members to speak on his behalf.
Pridemore says he did that because his comments to those reporters had been misconstrued in the past.

Pridemore is a Republican state representative seeking the nonpartisan school superintendent job. He is running against incumbent Tony Evers. Pridemore says the staff member who put together the memo resigned in January.

Should The State Sell?

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A legislative fiscal analysis says state administrators would have broader power to sell or lease state-owned property under Gov. Scott Walker's proposed budget.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau says the Department of Administration could sell the properties without the approval of the agency which has jurisdiction over them. A sale would be subject to approval from the Building Commission, which is headed by the governor.

Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says the governor wants to explore the possibility of selling unused land or state-owned power plants. Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca says Walker's proposal is too broad and is inappropriate for the budget. He says if the proposal is to explore the sale of power plants, then the language should be more specific.

Tourism Conference Coming

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The director and star of the 1980 comedy hit ``Airplane!'' are flying in to Wisconsin again. David Zucker and Robert Hays will be in Madison on Monday to unveil a new TV spot promoting the state as a tourism destination. Their appearance coincides with a statewide conference on tourism.

Zucker directed the commercial last summer on Plum Lake in Sayner. Hays, best known as the pilot from the film hit, plays a befuddled fisherman in the ad.

It's due to begin running in May in Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul, eastern Iowa and Milwaukee. Gov. Scott Walker and state lawmakers will take part in the three-day tourism conference.

A well-known La Crosse priest planned a lecture for tonight about electing a pope...halfway expecting that cardinals would not be finished with the election yet.

But you can still hear Monsignor Bernard McGarty tonight, and find out how he thinks the election of Pope Francis compares to others during the history of the Catholic Church. McGarty was surprised at how quickly cardinals reached a decision last week...two days, instead of the five days he expected.  And McGarty guesses that many cardinals who are now too old to vote on a pope may have talked a bit about the cardinal from Argentina before the conclave began. McGarty's talk starts at 7 o'clock tonight at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center.

Many communities with a large amount of boat traffic charge fees for letting boaters use public landings...

Now, the town of Campbell is starting to sell its own permits for four specific landings...Nelson Park, Fisherman's Road, and two on the spillway. Town administrator Chad Hawkins says the landing charges will be official, once signs are posted at the landing sites.  The yearly boat landing permits in Campbell are 10 dollars for a resident, 15 dollars for a non-resident, and 5 bucks for a trailer. Daily passes also will be available.
