No new referendum on fluoride in Holmen this April...
Village leaders have sent the idea of a referendum to committee, which means there's little chance it would get on the spring ballot. Retiring Holmen trustee Tony Horvath proposed a new referendum, claiming that the village did not follow legal procedure in going ahead with fluoridation after voters said 'yes' in 2008.

A beauty pageant winner recently got plenty of public attention just by sitting in the stands at a football game.
The reigning Miss Alabama from the Miss USA Pageant was singled out for compliments by sportscaster Brent Musberger while watching her boyfriend play in the N-C-A-A championship game.

Gorman, from Onalaska, represented Wisconsin at the Miss America finals in Las Vegas last week. She jokes that she hasn't been asked out for dates with college quarterbacks.
