Court ruling on protests at state Capitol will stand
Story By Associated Press

MADISON -

U.S. District Judge William Conley on Monday said that portions of the Capitol access policy were unconstitutional.

He ruled that no group with fewer than 20 people can be required to get a permit.

Under the policy, permits were required for most activities in the Capitol involving four or more people.

Mike Huebsch, Walker's Department of Administration secretary, said Wednesday the judge's order won't be appealed.

The judge's order did not invalidate the permitting process itself.

Huebsch says it remains in full effect for the Capitol and grounds.

MADISON - The chairman of the Wisconsin Elections Commission is urging the U.S. Supreme Court to rule quickly in a challenge to how the state's political boundaries were drawn following redistricting in 2011.

Commission Chairman Mark Thomsen said Tuesday that the state wants a fast decision following next week's oral arguments so maps for upcoming elections next year will be in place as soon as possible. The court is being asked by Democratic voters to overturn Republican-drawn legislative district maps. The Democrats argue the maps are unconstitutional and give Republicans an unfair advantage.

They take old, worn out furniture and make it new again using chalk paint.

The pair decided to open the studio when both of their houses started to get jam-packed with finished chalk paint projects.

Since 2012, the retirees opened up the Rusty Truck, a business that turns aged, rusted pieces into rustic furniture and art.

Owner Mike Gang says after he retired from being a firefighter, he wasn't going to let his hidden talent go to waste.

"I love seeing things and seeing what they could be. [Taking] old things and turning them into something that's useful and practical," said Mike.

Mike's wife Ruth Ann says she is more than happy to bring old memories to life with their creations.
