MADISON - With Wisconsin bitterly divided, Republican Governor Scott Walker is promising a more moderate agenda in the second half of his term.
Walker says he plans to focus on the budget and job creation in the upcoming session. And he's predicting less political turbulence than his first two years as Governor.
In an interview published Sunday, Walker says none of the legislation he supports this session should prompt massive protests. He hopes to avoid those that rocked the Capitol soon after he became Governor in 2011.
Walker says his budget priorities will be job creation, workforce development, tax cuts, education reform and transportation infrastructure.
MANITOWISH WATERS - People wanting to get into the holiday spirit didn't need to look further than Manitowish Waters.
Saturday was the 8th annual Festival of Trees.
The event raised money for the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library.
"We are offering businesses to come in and decorate a tree and it's a festive way to recognize local area businesses plus raise money for the library," said Koller Memorial Library director Janelle Kohl.
MINOCQUA - Cross Country skiing seems like itís just you and nature, but thereís actually a lot of manpower and big machinery involved.
The trails at Minocqua Winter Park open Friday. Employees got ready for the skiers starting Sunday.
ďThatís our roller. Thatís the first thing we do when we get a lot of snow we roll it and it knocks the air out of the snow and packs it down," said Eric Twito, one of the people who grooms the ski trails.
Preparing the snow makes the trails better for skiers.
