(AP) Recall elections have been ordered against four Republican Wisconsin state senators. The Government Accountability Board on Friday approved setting the recall elections for May 8 unless a primary is necessary. If so, that would be May 8 and the general election would be June 5. One of the targeted senators, Pam Galloway of Wausau, resigned earlier this month.
However, the recall election will proceed to fill her now vacant seat. The other three targeted incumbents are Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau, Terry Moulton of Chippewa Falls and Van Wanggaard of Racine. The Senate is currently evenly split 16-16 between Republicans and Democrats. The recalls will determine which party has control, but the Legislature is adjourned for the year.
(AP) Four former soldiers in the Wisconsin Army National Guard will be inducted into the Guard's Hall of Honor. The four are highly decorated soldiers who enlisted in or were drafted into the U.S. Army between 1965 and 1971. Their tours of duty included stints in Vietnam and Kuwait. The soldiers are retired Brig. Gen. Kerry Denson of Lake Mills; retired Brig. Gen. James Krueck of McFarland; retired Col. Timothy Pfrang of Sussex; and retired Col. David Schumacher of Onalaska. Their induction is ``for exceptional achievement and devotion to duty.'' They'll be honored May 5 in a public ceremony in Madison. The four will join 46 others previously inducted into the Hall of Honor. The soldiers were selected by a committee of current and past Guard soldiers.

Do you want to get in on city government, on the ground floor?
The La Crosse City Council has an opening. But you have to live in the 5th district, the university area, to be eligible. Eric Schmidt just resigned from that council seat this month. City clerk Teri Lehrke is accepting letters of application at her City Hall office until 5 p-m on April 23rd. The council will choose a successor to Schmidt at its May meetings, and the new member will serve until next April.
