Super Candidate Black Listing?

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A candidate for state superintendent of schools says he is not blacklisting five reporters in Wisconsin, despite a memo from a former staffer that said he would not grant interviews with those on the list.

Don Pridemore said Monday that the staff member who put together the December memo misunderstood a conversation about the reporters. Pridemore says his intention was to deal directly with those reporters and not allow staff members to speak on his behalf.
Pridemore says he did that because his comments to those reporters had been misconstrued in the past.

Pridemore is a Republican state representative seeking the nonpartisan school superintendent job. He is running against incumbent Tony Evers. Pridemore says the staff member who put together the memo resigned in January.

Should The State Sell?

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A legislative fiscal analysis says state administrators would have broader power to sell or lease state-owned property under Gov. Scott Walker's proposed budget.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau says the Department of Administration could sell the properties without the approval of the agency which has jurisdiction over them. A sale would be subject to approval from the Building Commission, which is headed by the governor.

Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says the governor wants to explore the possibility of selling unused land or state-owned power plants. Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca says Walker's proposal is too broad and is inappropriate for the budget. He says if the proposal is to explore the sale of power plants, then the language should be more specific.

Tourism Conference Coming

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The director and star of the 1980 comedy hit ``Airplane!'' are flying in to Wisconsin again. David Zucker and Robert Hays will be in Madison on Monday to unveil a new TV spot promoting the state as a tourism destination. Their appearance coincides with a statewide conference on tourism.

Zucker directed the commercial last summer on Plum Lake in Sayner. Hays, best known as the pilot from the film hit, plays a befuddled fisherman in the ad.

It's due to begin running in May in Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul, eastern Iowa and Milwaukee. Gov. Scott Walker and state lawmakers will take part in the three-day tourism conference.
