They have found the missing link. Guido, one of the Klement's racing sausages featured at Milwaukee Brewers games, went missing. It was the wurst of times. But now Guido has been found. The Italian sausage costume turned up at a bar in Cedarburg. It is not clear if someone returned the costume, and police are investigating.

A word of caution to Americans who want to donate goods to foreign countries...

There's no guarantee the donations will reach their destination. Blame that on government red tape, corruption, or other factors. The president of Western Technical College, Lee Rasch, says a recent medical shipment from Wisconsin was delayed in getting to a clinic in Cameroon, because dockworkers wanted bribes before they would unload the crate from a ship. Rasch praises two nuns for going through Cameroon government channels to claim the shipment.  The nuns attended Western Tech in La Crosse to study computer science. Rasch is working with a La Crosse group to establish sister city ties to the community of Kumbo in Cameroon.

Minnesota Budget Fight Continues

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Five Democratic legislators are the targets of a new radio ad campaign by a Republican outside group seeking to pressure them on tax elements of Gov. Mark Dayton's budget.

The Minnesota Jobs Coalition headed by GOP operatives plans to run the ads in politically mixed districts, where voters elected a Democratic House member but preferred Republican nominee Mitt Romney over Democrat Barack Obama in the presidential race.

Ben Golnik says his group is spending only a few thousand dollars but the ads will run at least six times a day for a week in the targeted markets. The spots focus on Dayton's plan to expand the sales tax to more things and urge voters to sound off.

The ads mention Democratic Reps. Andrew Falk of Murdock, Paul Marquart of Dilworth, Joe Radinovich of Crosby, Mary Sawatzky of Willmar and John Ward of Baxter.

Wisconsin Pounded with Snow Again

Written by

MILWAUKEE (AP) Sheriff's officials in at least one county were advising motorists to stay home as a winter storm made travel dangerous and closed schools in eastern Wisconsin.

Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine Unified and Sheboygan school districts were among those canceling classes Wednesday.

The storm that paralyzed parts of the nation's midsection is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in counties near Lake Michigan and up to 6 inches in counties away from the lake.

Sheboygan County received 14 inches and sheriff's deputies issued a no travel advisory. Lt. Mark Rupnik says they have at least 10 calls for stuck vehicles they haven't been able to get to. He says people have been abandoning their vehicles.

The heavy snow also caused power outages in the Milwaukee area.

Here Come The Moths

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin will take its fight against the gypsy moth to much of the western portion of the state later this year, with aerial insecticide spraying in about one-third of the state's counties.

The spray may start in late spring or early summer depending on the weather, and will last about a month. The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection plans to start from the south and work northward.

The gypsy moth's appetite for trees and shrubs makes it harmful to the state's timber and paper industries.

Residents can learn about the spraying program at open house meetings from March 12-14 in Madison, Black River Falls and Superior.
