WAUSAU - Some of us just shovel snow, but three sculptors are turning it into a work of
art.

Team USA Snow Sculptors are back for their 24th Snow Magic at the Woodson Art
Museum in Wausau.

This year's sculpture is based off the museum's exhibition of magic themed
artwork.

"They always choose a theme that relates to artwork on view, and in this case
it's not based on a particular specific artwork, but more illustrating the theme
of magic and the magic of snow sculpture and of artwork in general," says the
museum's marketing and communications manager Amy Beck.

The sculptors are working all weekend long to finish the project by Sunday. The
team has been together for almost 30 years.

"This is one of our regular stops each year, and they always treat us really
well," says snow sculptor Mike Martino. "We enjoy the people coming out and
talking to us. And this year we've got just wonderful conditions. This is great
temperatures, perfect snow. They packed a really good block for us so it's
really great."

They'll turn the snow into a rabbit emerging out of a hat to fit the museum's
magical theme.

Visitors can see the sculpturing process through Sunday.

Walker says 'right to work' not on agendaSubmitted: 09/02/2014

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker says making Wisconsin a ``right to work'' state is not a part of his agenda, but he refused to say if he would veto such a bill.

In ``right to work'' states, private-sector workers can't be required to join a union or pay dues as a condition of employment.

Walker has repeatedly been cool to the idea, saying it wasn't a priority and would be a distraction from his agenda, but he hasn't definitely ruled it out.

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker says he won't make another job-creation promise like he did four years ago.

Walker said Tuesday that his economic development plan to be unveiled in coming weeks will be a detailed proposal about how to grow jobs, but it won't include a specific promise of how many jobs would be created.

Walker promised during his first campaign for governor in 2010 that if elected he would make sure the state added 250,000 private-sector jobs over his first term. Based on the latest figures, only about 103,000 jobs have been added.
