The St. Croix County town of Forest’s board of supervisors last month unanimously authorized a news release stating “it is more likely . . . Complete story »

The Public Service Commission is in a huff. They are protesting very much. Last week two groups filed a motion with the commission demanding that commission chair Rebecca Valcq and commissioner Mike Huebsch recuse themselves from participating in a decision about whether to build a massive power line through the Driftless region of southwest Wisconsin.
