    Ralph Ansami|Mar 12, 2013

    MADISON, Wis. — State Sen. Robert Jauch questioned why Gov. Scott Walker chose to sign Wisconsin’s new mining bill on Monday so far from the counties that would be affected by a Gogebic Taconite mine. Walker signed the controversial mining bill Monday in Rhinelander and Milwaukee, “neither of which are located near the Penokee Mountain range,” Jauch pointed out. The Assembly overwhelmingly passed the bill last week, sending it to Walker for his signature. Jauch, D-Poplar, noted late last week that the Oneida County Board of Supervisors last ye...

    To the Editor: Over the past several months our Congress has been talking about government spending and deficit reduction. The only thing that appears to be on the table to accomplish this is entitlements that have been contributed to by those eligible to receive them.
