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.

RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander Food Pantry could use more volunteers to help move to their new location.

The pantry will move into the old Golden Harvest building.

But before they move they need to make some changes to the building.

One of those changes is building a new wall.

"It will separate the distribution area from the storage area," says Rhinelander Food Pantry volunteer Bill Vancos. "The distribution area will end up being about twice the size of what our current area is right now at the current location, so that'll be great. And then we'll also have the storage all on one level."
