The mining company that says it doesn't want to do business in Wisconsin any more may not be gone for good.
Assemblyman Steve Doyle of Onalaska predicts that the Gogebic Mining company can be wooed back to Wisconsin, if an appealing mining bill can be passed.
Gogebic blamed the state Senate's failure to pass mining regulations for its decision to stop a 700-job project in northern Wisconsin. Democrat Doyle thinks the lesson to be learned from the mining fight is that the two parties must be more willing to work together.
Dane County Judge David Flanagan, on Tuesday, temporarily blocked enforcement of Wisconsin's controversial new voter identification law, just weeks before the state's April 3rd presidential primary, prompting supporters of the law to vow they were likely to appeal.

Hosting an NCAA sports championship on any level gives a college or university a time to shine as it does for the city hosting the event. So when UW-L was asked to host the D-3 wrestling championships again this year, the vote was a unanimous yes. And for UW-L Eagle Wrestling Coach, Dave Malecek, it gives his team a moment in the spotlight as well.
The event which starts this morning at 10:30 at the La Crosse Center, is expected to bring in over a half a million dollars to the local economy.
Governor Scott Walker announced in La Crosse today that Authenticom in La Crosse will create up to 50 jobs as a result of the company's expansion. The company is eligible for up $230 thousand in tax credits through the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
