MADISON - A spokeswoman for Trek Bicycles says its full page newspaper advertisement complies with Wisconsin law and is constitutionally protected free speech.
The Wisconsin Republican Party on Tuesday filed a complaint with the state elections board saying the ad that ran Sunday in Madison and Milwaukee newspapers was an illegal campaign contribution to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.
Her father started Trek and she formerly worked for the company.
Trek spokeswoman Marina Marich says Gov. Scott Walker's television ad last week clearly attacked Trek and ``Trek is entitled to defend itself under the First Amendment by running its own advertisements containing the true facts.''
Walker's ad says Burke made millions while working for a company that shipped jobs overseas where woman and children earn as little as $2 an hour.
RHINELANDER - The initial emergency call -- someone screaming for help on a lake near Rhinelander Thursday afternoon -- sounded bad, but it appears it was a false alarm.
Search and rescue crews called in Newbold's air boat to search Lake Thompson around 1:45 p.m.
Pelican Deputy Fire Chief Norman Peterson said first responders first searched the west bay shoreline on foot. They then used the air boat to sweep the entire lake, but didn't find anyone, any tracks, or any places someone might have gone through the ice.
