On Senate passes bill requiring ultrasounds
according to the story, "[the vote] came about after Democrats used a procedural move to block a final vote after hours of debate on Tuesday. Only two senators, one Democrat and one Republican, were able to speak Wednesday before Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald cut off debate after about 30 minutes."***********democrats invoked the procedure to block the vote tuesday. that procedure has two parts. if you invoke it to delay the vote, then, as the story states, only two people can speak prior to the vote the following day.and they did -- one from each party.********there were "hours of debate" on tuesday**********i'm guessing democrats used the procedure knowing full well they could easily stir up the pot with the claim "republicans would not allow debate."
On Wis. journalism group stunned by budget provision
whether left, right or independent, free rent is indeed subsidizing this group. people who get rent assistance are subsidized, correct? what's the difference?**********as for those who say having an independent news organization on campus is OK because it gives students internship opportunities... why not give office space and all that comes with it to ALL companies who offer internships?
The Wisconsin center for investigateive journalism is an independent news organization. While it regularly works with wis public radio and tv and sources news stories to other news organizations around the state, it is NOT part of the UW. They were receiving free room and board from the UW. would it be OK if say WCLO news was gettng their rent paid by UW Rock County? It's the same thing. The state (you and I) should not be paying this organization's rent.

he's the new exec director for rock county humane society. yet he's still the mayor of milton and he's still the exec director of the oregon area chamber of congress. i would think the board would be concerned how well he can do the job while holding those other positions.

(This comment was removed by the site staff.)
Would've been nice to know that we start using these NEXT WEEK. I'm not alone either. 3/4 of my neighborhood transferred their current garbage to the new bins and put them on the curb today. Easy day today for the garbage men.
