Did the recall election for governor last June put an end to the fighting in Madison?
Mike Huebsch thinks so. The state secretary of administration believes the heated battles of the last two years cooled down quickly, once Scott Walker won that special recall race.
Speaking on WIZM's La Crosse Talk, Huebsch said the next state budget should not have many surprises in it. Governor Walker is putting together that budget now, to be brought to the legislature in February. Huebsch expects training for new jobs to be a high priority for state government.
The State Patrol has now released the names of victims in a deadly weekend crash on the Mississippi River bridge at Prairie du Chien...
Lorraine Siegenthaler of McGregor, Iowa was killed on Sunday when her car crossed the center line on the bridge and hit a van head-on. The second driver, Roberta Lear of Prairie du Chien, is at Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse with life-threatening injuries. Three passengers in the Lear van had minor injuries. Investigators haven't figured out why Siegenthaler's car went into the other lane. They've ruled out alcohol as a factor.
