Story By Hayley Tenpas

WAUSAU - A local hospital's dedication to healthy hearts earns it a top notch award.

Aspirus Wausau Hospital was placed in Becker's Hospital Review list of "100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs."

Becker's Review chooses hospitals based on care and contributions to the heart field.


Cardiologists at Apisrus say active heart research programs combined with dedication to different aspects of heart disease are some of the keys to their success.

"I'm proud of, not only on the quality of the care we provide our patients but also in the fact that patients are satisfied with doctors, with nurses, with techs, with the facility. So it's a recognition to the whole team," said cardiologist Dr. German Larrain

Aspirus is one of four Wisconsin hopsitals recognized by Becker's for heart care.

MADISON - he Wisconsin Supreme Court has canceled oral arguments it planned to hold next month on three cases related to the secret investigation into Gov. Scott Walker's 2012 recall campaign.

The court had scheduled arguments for April 17 and April 20. But in an order released Friday, the court said ``it is neither legally nor practically possible to hold oral argument.''

The arguments were expected to be awkward, given that much information remains shielded from public view, including the names of unnamed petitioners trying to halt the investigation.

The court said Friday it was "strongly adverse" to closing the courtroom to the public, but it would be impossible to protect the secrecy of the case by holding arguments.

Instead, the court will decide the case based on written filings by attorneys.
