MADISON - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is signing the nearly three-month late state budget into law, a move that will allow him to transition into re-election mode.
Walker planned to sign the budget Thursday afternoon at an elementary school in Neenah.
On Wednesday, he made public nearly 100 items he was striking from the $76 billion, two-year spending plan.
Now Walker is expected to hit the road to tout the positives in the budget, including a $639 million increase in funding for K-12 schools, a tuition freeze at the University of Wisconsin and a small property tax cut.
But Walker's numerous Democratic opponents are also zeroing in on aspects of the plan they will use to attack him over the next year of the campaign.
A 16-year-old girl is missing from Sawyer County according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice. Angel Marie Simonson is reported as an endangered missing person. She is a white female, 5'7", and 220 lbs.
WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.
This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.
Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,
"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."
Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.
"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.
Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
