Super PAC formed to help Gov. Walker Submitted: 04/16/2015
Super PAC formed to help Gov. Walker
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Scott Walker's likely campaign for the White House is getting a boost from some former staffers, who have set up a political group able to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money.



Two former campaign managers for the Wisconsin governor said Thursday they have formed a super PAC to support Walker.

The move comes after three other Republicans have already officially announced their plans to run for president.

Walker has stuck by his timeline not to announce his decision until after he signs the state budget into law, likely in June.

Walker in January formed a committee that allows him to raise unlimited amounts. But unlike the super PAC, that group can only spend money to talk about issues and not specifically advocate for Walker.

NEWBOLD - Parts of the Northwoods have seen more than blank feet of snow this season. First responders want to make sure that snow doesn't create a public safety concern.

The fluorescent 'fire signs' outside many Northwoods homes help firefighters and other first responders find your home quickly when there's an emergency.

Newbold Fire Chief Mark Fetzer said it's important to keep them clear of snow.

"If we can't see them, neither can whoever is removing the snow from your driveway," said Fetzer. "They may plow it right over, then you won't have a sign there at all."
