But now, John and Linda Lyche are able to wear their Riverfest uniforms in public, as the new commodore and first mate for this year's summer festival in La Crosse. Linda Lyche says the couple's three children now live outside the area, so they were told about the honor early, and make plans to travel to La Crosse with the grandchildren for Riverfest. John Lyche has been president of Dura Tech and the former Ridgeview Industries in La Crosse. Linda is a retired school psychologist. Riverfest runs from July 3rd through the 6th.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The state Assembly is set to vote on a Republican bill that would ensure repeat drunken drivers spend time behind bars.
The bill would require judges to impose three-year prison sentence on seven-, eight- and nine-time offenders and a minimum four-year prison sentence for 10-time offenders and beyond.
Judges also would be required to impose a mandatory 30-day jail sentence on anyone who causes an injury while driving drunk and commercial drivers with a blood-alcohol content of 0.04 percent to 0.08 percent who cause an injury.
The bill comes after a state appeals court ruled last month current law leaves a judge free to decide whether to impose prison time.
The Assembly is scheduled to vote on the proposal Tuesday afternoon.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) Gov. Scott Walker says the IRS's screening of conservative political groups seeking tax-exempt status is ``more than just a political scandal.''
Walker commented Tuesday on the issue after he and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal sent a letter urging President Barack Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the case.
Walker says the extra scrutiny of conservative groups by the IRS is ``a real threat to our freedoms.'' He says the issue is much bigger than a temporary political story out of Washington and everyone should be concerned about the IRS targeted certain groups.
In their letter, Jindal and Walker call the allegations ``Big Brother come to life.''
Both Walker and Jindal are potential Republican candidates for president in 2016.
