Ryan Appears for First Live Television Interview Since Presidential Election
Story By NBC

WASHINGTON, DC - Former Vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan sat down for his first live TV interview since the presidential election.

Congressman Ryan was on NBC's "Meet The Press" for an exclusive interview with David Gregory.

During the interview Ryan talked about a number of topics, but mainly the nation's economic status.
Ryan did take time out to briefly discuss a potential presidential run in 2016.

Ryan said it was premature to talk about a presidential run.

Ryan said, "I've got an important job to do. I represent Wisconsin. I'm chairman of the budget committee at the time we have a fiscal crisis. I think I can do my job representing the people I work for by focusing on that right now, than focusing on distant things."

ELCHO - An Elcho couple's Christmas tradition now serves as a tradition for many others in the Northwoods.

Carl and Lissa Bloechl spent only a week setting up thanks to the stretch of warm weather early in the season.

It's common for the couple to drop everything to take an emergency EMT call which adds time to decorating.
 
They say they can't stop the display though!

"We get people from Rhinelander or Antigo or people that we know, even from outlying areas! They'll say 'Do you have the lights up yet, we want to see them!" Then we have to scramble and beat the weather," says Carl Bloechl.

The couple spends about $300 adding new items to their display every year, such as the new nativity scene Carl built.

This is the fifth year the couple has decorated their apartment complex.

Walker said the new law, branded the Mining for America Act, "might as well be called the 'Keep Our Kids in Wisconsin' bill."
