Local News Briefs Saturday 1/25/14


State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt says it will be interesting to see how a couple states do after they decriminalized marijuana. He says in particular Colorado where officials have been talking about the additional revenue that will be coming in and how some that money will go toward education. He finds that a bit ironic. The state lawmaker from Fond du Lac says he doesn’t dispute the fact that the nation may be moving closer to decriminalizing marijuana, but he doesn’t believe the majority of the residents in the 52nd State Assembly District and Wisconsin are ready for that.

Snowplow Reminder

With more snow forecast this weekend a state trooper is asking drivers to give snowplow operators room to operate. Trooper Scott Hlinak of the Fond du Lac post says you should increase your following distance and expect the unexpected. He says sometimes they need to back up or scrape more when they get to an intersection. He says snowplow operators can’t always see you when you are behind them.
