WASHINGTON, DC - Paul Ryan spoke publicly Tuesday night, for the first time since coming up short in the presidential election.
The former vice-presidential candidate delivered the keynote speech at the Jack Kemp Foundation award dinner in Washington.
Ryan was last year's winner of the Kemp leadership award.
The Wisconsin congressman thanked the foundation for supporting him and Mitt Romney during their presidential campaign.
"We gave this race our all and I'm grateful for this nomination. I got to say, it's thrilling when your team trusts you with ball and it's humbling. You advance the ball as far as you can only to come up a little short."
Florida Senator Marco Rubio is this year's winner of the Kemp leadership award.
VILAS COUNTY - More people today use maps on their phones when traveling, but some people still like those paper maps.
The Vilas County GIS just made 15 maps of the area. They give people the option to download and print them at home. A map of Boulder Junction even won an award at the 27th annual Wisconsin land Information Association conference in Middleton.
“There was a lot of interest in creating a portable, easy to use map atlas that responders, town crew, delivery entities, could take out in the field with them and find any address point any road name any water body,” says Rebecca Nordine, Vilas County GIS Specialist. “Something that they could bring out along out in the field with them.”
The atlases will give people an easier way of looking up addresses across Vilas County.
“We do offer up online mapping and that's great but if you get into an area where there's no cell phone or no internet service you'll need something a map or paper map to fall back on,” says Nordine.
Each atlas will be updated at the beginning of the year.
