(AP) Former Democratic Vice President Walter Mondale and former Republican Gov. Arne Carlson are offering themselves as the public face of a fight against a Minnesota constitutional amendment requiring voters to present photo IDs at the polls. The pair was introduced today as two of four co-chairs of the Our Vote Our Future coalition's campaign against the ballot measure. Voters will decide in November whether to make government-issued photo identification essential to election participation. The advisory committee is decidedly heavy with former Democratic officeholders.

First it was the city of La Crosse. Then the county. Then Onalaska. Now, Holmen is closing in on new sign regulations. Including updated rules for electronic signs
Village adminstrator Scott Heinig. He says the sign rules--like so many others in the village--are simply out of date. While other local governments are tackling issues surrounding electronic billboards, that won't be an issue in Holmen; the village doesn't permit any billboards at all.
Adrian Wydeven can remember when there were only a few wolves wandering around in Wisconsin. A few dozen at the most. The most recent count, says the DNR biologist, is a far cry from that; nearly nine hundred wolves. Or somewhere around that
Wydeven believes a hunt this fall could get the state closer to the goal of 350 wolves this fall.
