UW-Marathon Announces Recruiting ClassSubmitted: 04/25/2013
Story By UW-Marathon Co. Athletics

WAUSAU - The UWMC Huskies announced their recruiting class for next year. Two players from the Great Northern Conference have committed to joining the men's basketball program: Jonathan Nyberg, a 6'5" forward from Tomahawk and Brandon Piotrowski, a 6'5" forward from Mosinee.

The Central Wisconsin -10 conference is providing three student–athletes for the Huskies. Rosholt's Max Yenter (6'1" shooting guard) and Josh Studinski (6'1" guard) have indicated their intent to attend UW-Marathon. Gresham's Brady Hoffman (6'2" forward) is the third CW-10 player to commit. . Additionally, Weyawega-Fremont's Bryce Behn (6'4" shooting guard) has signed. Wega-Fremont is a CW-8 conference school.


UW-Marathon is coming off an unfamiliar 2nd place finish in Western division of the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference (WCC) with an 8-2 conference and 11-9 overall record. The addition of this new group should help bring the Huskies back to prominence in WCC play.

"These guys are all good students with great basketball skills" remarked Huskies' head coach Bill Gibbs. The Huskies will return 8 members of the 2012-13 campaign, 4 with starting experience. "This group coming in will have plenty of opportunity to contribute. I look forward to the elevated level of competition we can create" remarked Gibbs.

MADISON - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he and GOP legislative leaders have agreed to completely remove a part of the proposed state budget that would severely roll back the state's open records laws.

Walker announced the decision in a joint statement Saturday with Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, and the co-chairs of the joint budget committee.

The statement says the records proposal "will be removed from the budget in its entirety." They say the plan "was never intended to inhibit transparent government in any way."

The restrictions, which Republicans slipped into the proposed budget late Thursday, would exempt nearly everything created by government officials from Wisconsin's open records law.

The statement says the Legislature will form a committee to study the issue and allow for public discussion.

MADISON/TOMAHAWK - It may come as a surprise, but fishermen, hunters, or hikers can't legally cross most railroad tracks in Wisconsin.

That's even if the rail line splits their own property. Walking across tracks is only allowed on the thousands of crossings specifically approved by the state.

Some legislative Republicans think that doesn't make sense. They added a proposal to the state budget on Thursday to allow people to cross tracks on foot. Making a crossing would no longer be considered trespassing, and railroad companies would have no power to prevent it.

"Those stories need to go out to the rest of us," Meredith said.

Brush stroke by brush stroke, Meredith went to work this spring, painting the uniforms and faces of Northwoods World War II veterans and bringing their stories back to life.

"They weren't gods and heroes," Meredith said. "They're ordinary people who overcame their fear and the courage and dignity to basically save the world."
