WISCONSIN RAPIDS - Ever wanted to be up close and personal with the Packers? Today fans had that chance in Wisconsin Rapids. It was the team's final stop on their Tailgate Tour. Every visit is a fundraiser for an area charity.
This one was for Opportunity Development Centers. They help people with disabilities work and succeed.
Over 1,000 Packer fans were at Witter Field.
Packers President Mark Murphy was on hand. So were current players Randall Cobb, Alex Green, and Jarret Bush. Former Packer greats Santana Dotson, Frank Winters and Aaron Taylor were there too.
The team answered questions from fans and also signed autographs. The Packers were happy to meet fans and make a difference.
MERRILL - Pete Borchardt claims corruption in the Sheriff's Office cost him the Republican primary for Lincoln County Sheriff.
Borchardt, a Merrill police officer, lost to Sheriff's Lt. Ken Schneider by more than 400 votes in the August race. There's no Democrat on the general election ballot, so it appeared Schneider would coast into office.
But Borchardt's now running a write-in campaign. He thinks he would have won in August, if not for corruption.
"Corruption is not too strong of a word to use," Borchardt said Wednesday. "There are some things that have gone on at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that should not go on in an organization."
