MADISON - The case is closed and no charges will be filed ... at least not against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
The investigation began in 2010. It dug into allegations of illegal campaign activity by Walker's former aides and associates.
Some of Walker's close aides have been convicted of charges ranging from finance fraud to embezzlement.
"As many of you know and have reported in the past, we were the ones who originally raised concerns to the district attorney about Operation Freedom and concerns about how funds were concerned and the use of funds at that time. We're glad the process is done and I think the process speaks for itself," says Walker.
Through the investigation, Governor Walker maintained his innocence and he now says he's glad it's over.
Five people were charged and convicted during the investigation including Walker's former deputy chief of staff.
THREE LAKES - One teenager decided to spend a day giving back to the Three Lakes community 18-year-old Maxwell Blanchard lives in L.A but always makes it back to Three Lakes during the summer.
Blanchard learned how to water ski and wakeboard in Three Lakes at five years old.
On Sunday he spent the day giving free water skiing and wakeboarding lessons.
"[To] get someone new out there to ski or at least get them attempting. It's always fun when you get the kids who are a little nervous out there and a little shaky, then they get out there and they love it," said Blanchard.
Blanchard said every year the water sports community chooses a day to give back and participate in "International Pass the Handle Day."
Kylee Swendson decided to help Blanchard this year with the lessons.
"It's great for everybody to get a chance to learn especially people who don't get the opportunity every day," said Swendson.
