GOP And Mining Bill

Written by

(AP) Republican lawmakers plan to announce changes to the bill designed to make it easier to open a massive iron ore mine in northern Wisconsin.

Four Republicans working on the measure said they would announce the amendments at a Monday afternoon news conference. Senate and Assembly committees are scheduled to meet simultaneously on Wednesday to vote on advancing the bill.

Democrats have offered their own proposal that differs from the Republican version in several ways, including extending the time allowed for the Department of Natural Resources to make a decision on issuing a permit for a new mine.

Republicans are trying to pass the measure quickly to help Gogebic Taconite open the mine near Lake Superior. But opponents say there aren't enough environmental protections.

Food Donation Record Attempt

Written by

 

(AP) A 16-year-old Fond du Lac student is leading an effort to break a world record for the most food donations in 24 hours.

Food for Freedom project members want to break the current record of nearly 559,000 pounds of food held by the North Carolina School of Science & Mathematics. The food collection event is set for Saturday, May 25 to Sunday, May 26 Memorial Day weekend at Fond du Lac High School.

Junior Daniel Loomans says there are a number of ways residents, businesses, group and schools can get involved, including hosting their own food drives. Food pantries in Brown, Fond du Lac, Outagamie, Sheboygan and Winnebago counties will benefit.

Nearly 1,200 volunteers will be needed to cover the 24-hour collection effort.

Vikings Want Super Bowl

Written by

 

(AP) The mayor of Minneapolis says a new Minnesota Vikings stadium puts the city in a position to host another Super Bowl.

Mayor R.T. Rybak says Minneapolis put on a great show for the Super Bowl in 1992, and with a new, first-class stadium, it would be even better the second time around.

Convention Center officials say the Super Bowl is now an event that can last two weeks and pumps hundreds of millions of dollars into a local economy. An announcement on which city will get the Super Bowl in 2018 won't be made until the spring of next year.
