Walker On Right To Work


(WRN) Governor Scott Walker says he's not interested in pushing right to work legislation. Walker makes it clear that right to work legislation will not be a legislative priority in a second term, if he defeats Democrat Mary Burke in November. It's not the first time Walker has rebuffed suggestions that Wisconsin might become a right to work state - the issue was raised during the recall campaign and again during the most recent legislative session. Walker stopped short however, of definitively stating he'd veto such a bill if it were to pass the legislature.


Governor Scott Walker will be in the area today. Walker is scheduled to be at Manowske Welding just before noon to take a tour of the facility.

Ripon Story Walk Makes Debut


This month the Ripon Library’s Story Walk will make its debut on the Northwestern Trail. The Friends of the Ripon Public Library are funding the effort. City Administrator Lori Rich says the Common Council recently gave their blessing to the effort, which will allow residents to walk the trail and read a story a page at a time as they follow the path. She says pages will be laminated and staked out one page at a time along the trail so people can read it as they walk the trail. She says the first story is about a puppy. She says the goal was to have the story walk ready in time for Ripon’s Septemberfest celebration this month.
