RHINELANDER - It's been a long road for Rhinelander senior Brianna Jorgensen. She is recovering from a torn ACL. But a bright spot for her Wednesday. She signed to play college hoops. She has decided to play college basketball for Upper Iowa University.
Jorgenson averaged 12.5 points and just over 4 rebounds per game last year for the Hodags.
Upper Iowa is a division two program. Brianna also considered D-1 club Cleveland State, UW-Stevens Point and several other D-3 teams.
But getting her tuition payed for - plus studying to get into sports medicine were among the defining factors.
In November 2006, nearly 60 percent of Wisconsin voters supported an amendment banning gay marriage.
Before Wisconsin lawmakers could consider a bill to allow gay marriage, voters would have to pass an amendment undoing the 2006 amendment language. But before that the Legislature would have to pass the amendment in two consecutive sessions.
ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - A week with little to no rain pushed fire risks dangerously high across northern Wisconsin. A fire in Bayfield spanning 9-thousand acres destroyed 17 homes. Fire crews want everyone to be smart about burning this time of year.
A small burn got out of control on Loop Heights Road in Pine Lake today. Fire Chief, Brian Gehrig, says the weather conditions make it easy for fires to get out of control.
