STATEWIDE - A new poll says Wisconsin Republicans prefer to see Congressman Paul Ryan run for the White House.

In a hypothetical nine-way primary, voters preferred the former vice-presidential candidate at a 27 percent rate.

Governor Walker was next in the poll by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling.

The Governor came in at 14 percent.

Head-to-head, Ryan also performed better, favored at a 47-38 margin.

Hillary Clinton was by far tops among Wisconsin Democrats at 50 percent.

Former Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold was next at 20 percent.

Clinton led every Republican she was paired with in the poll, except Ryan.

The two tied at 46 percent in a hypothetical match-up.

RHINELANDER - The Oneida County Sheriff says that being in jail is a constant battle with boredom. Inmates can watch TV, play cards, and message their families but that's about it. Now, thanks to a new program, inmates can work towards getting a high school education.

The Oneida County jail recently paired up with Nicolet Technical College to create a GED certification program for some of its inmates. The program is designed to set inmates up for success once they are released from jail.

A teacher from Nicolet College comes to the jail four times a week for about an hour to teach nine state inmates. Although the program is open to county and state inmates, there are only state inmates involved at this time.
