WISCONSIN - Fewer than five weeks remain before sign-ups begin for the new online health insurance marketplaces in Wisconsin.
But Governor Scott Walker's administration has yet to release details on what plans and rates people can choose from.
The online sign-ups will start October 1.
The Affordable Care Act requires the healthcare exchanges to take effect in January.
States like Ohio and Florida have already made rate information publically available.
On Monday, Governor Walker said more details would be released within a week.
"Politically, I still have questions about Obamacare. In the end, it's the law, and we're going to make sure that people have as much access to information as they need," he said.
Governor Walker has consistently opposed the Affordable Care Act and its implementation.
But one of Wisconsin's U.S. Senators continues to strongly support the legislation.
"I think it's really high time that people of all political stripes put politics aside and instead focus on the progress we need to make together to make this work," said Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
The state-by-state marketplaces are designed to transform the way individuals and small businesses buy private health insurance.
MINOCQUA - Police officers often meet people on their worst days: after a death, crime, or other bad situations. The Minocqua Police Department hopes some unpaid additions to their staff can help victims, families, and officers cope with those situations a little better.
The department is looking to add a team of clergy members to form a chaplain program. The chaplains would be on call and show up to scenes when needed. Chief David Jaeger had been considering the idea for a while when he heard about police in Oneida County using the same program.
RHINELANDER - For better or worse, drivers in Rhinelander will get an extra week to use the Davenport Street bridge. The city's contractor for its downtown reconstruction project delayed closing the bridge for repairs to May 8th.
Crews first planned to close the bridge in mid-April, then pushed that back to May 1 due to weather. Now, weather has further delaying the month-long repairs to the concrete decking.
This is part of a larger project to finish up the downtown reconstruction, which began in March 2016. The city reconstructed 21 blocks, replacing underground utilities and modernizing the downtown area.
ANTIGO - Pushups, wall sits, and sit ups may sound like a tough workout for most of us. But dozens of kids from the Boys and Girls Club of Langlade County did that and more as part of a national fitness competition Friday afternoon.
Boys and Girls Clubs from around the country are teaming up to help kids become more active with the Nestlé's National Fitness Competition.
