COUNTY FATAL ACCIDENT
person is killed following a motorcycle versus car accident in
Waushara County. Sheriff Jeffrey Nett says Eugene R. Hempler of Rural Neshkoro
was operating a motorcycle when he pulled out of a driveway into the
path of a car. Hempler
was pronounced dead at the scene.
The car driver was not injured.
The accident happened Thursday evening around 6:45pm on State
Highway 21, just west of Shangrila Lane, in the Town of Dakota.
The accident remains under investigation.
This is the sixth traffic fatality in Waushara County this
READY FOR OBAMA-CARE 2015
appears that the cost of buying an Obama-care health package
will not increase more than it did this year in Wisconsin.
And in some instances, it will be cheaper. State
officials have not said what next year's individual private
plans will cost under the Affordable Care Act. The
Wisconsin Health News reported data that was posted briefly on a
state Web site. That showed a wide range of average
changes in premiums. The Dean Health Plan of Madison had
the highest increase in its Obama-care packages at just over
13-percent -- while Medica Health Plans said it would drop its
average rates by 17-percent. Next year's Obama-care
packages will go on sale November 15th, and the deadline for
their federal approval is December 5th. The goal of the
program was to create enough competition to keep rates in check.
John Trochlell of W-P-S Health Insurance in Madison says
the market will need a number of years to settle itself out.
This is the third year of the Obama-care packages. As
of three months ago, about 130-thousand Wisconsinites were
covered under the federal market. More buyers are expected
in 2015, when the federal penalties go up for not having

Here are the details:
Early voting begins today at municipal clerks' offices throughout
Wisconsin. Republicans trimmed it down this year, to prevent the
state's predominantly-Democratic big cities from voting during the
hours that clerks in smaller G-O-P areas don't have the resources to
run. Still, early absentee voting gives parties a chance to
rally their supporters, and get votes in the can for Republican
Governor Scott Walker and his Democratic challenger Mary Burke.
Democrats plan to take whatever advantage they can, as the
latest Marquette Law School poll had Burke and Walker tied at
47-percent. Both the State Democratic Party and Burke's camp
say they'll have volunteers encouraging residents to vote early.
They're also planning rallies throughout the state. Walker
said the new limits create voting uniform hours statewide. Clerks'
offices can hand out ballots from 8 a-m to 7 p-m on weekdays until
the Friday before Election Day. There's no more weekend voting --
which Milwaukee Election Commission director Neil Albrecht says is
disappointing. He said five-thousand people voted early on the
weekend before the 2012 presidential election. Albrecht says
voting laws should encourage participation. Milwaukee expects
around 30-thousand early voters, and Madison ten-thousand.
Wisconsin wolf hunters have already hit their quotas in the
Northwoods, just five days into a season that was scheduled to run
for four-and-a-half months. The statewide limit is 150, less
than in previous years after the total wolf population took a big
drop last winter. Eighty-one wolves, more than half the total,
have been shot-and-trapped since last Wednesday. Zones One,
Two, and Four are already closed after hunters reached those quotas.
The D-N-R will close Zone-Five at 6:30 tonight. That
covers part of west central Wisconsin roughly between Stanley and
Oxford. Zone-Three remains open in the northwest, along with
Zone-Six in about the southern three-fourths of the state. This is
the third year of the wolf season, which has drawn controversy
through its use of hunting dogs among other things. Environmentalists
continue to try and restore the grey wolf to its former federal
protected status. Supporters of the wolf hunt say it's needed
to reduce livestock deaths and crop damage.
An 80-year-old retired professor has started a bicycle ride across
Wisconsin to make folks more aware of a proposed crude oil pipeline.
Bruce Noble expects to ride across 16 counties where Enbridge
Energy plans to install a new pipeline from Superior to northeast
Illinois. He tells W-D-I-O T-V at Duluth-Superior he's afraid
of more oil spills like the ones Enbridge has had in the past.
He said it would be more difficult to clean up spills from the
new pipeline because of the tar-sands in the oil that would be
carried. Hagen has survived cancer and open-heart surgery.
He says he doesn't have a long time to live -- and he wants to
continue a fight against potential environmental problems for future
generations. Lorraine Little of Enbridge Energy says pipelines
are the safest method by far for transporting crude oil. Noble
agrees, but says it might not be enough. During his bike ride, Noble
says he'll encourage local county boards to approve resolutions
calling for more transparency from Enbridge on its construction
A Powerball ticket sold in Stanley won a million-dollars on Saturday
night -- and a Mega Millions ticket in Delavan won a million on
Friday night. Both players matched all five regular numbers,
but not the Powerball and Mega Ball to win the second prizes of
their respective games. Two Powerball players also won the
game's third prize on Saturday. One of them won ten-thousand
-- the other won 20-thousand by having the Power Play multiplier of
two. Nobody won the jackpot in either game during the weekend,
and both are above 100-million dollars for their next drawings.
Mega Millions has a jackpot of 200-million dollars for
tomorrow night -- the highest since March 18th -- with a cash option
of almost 123-million dollars. The Powerball jackpot is at
110-million for Wednesday night, with a cash option of 69-and-a-half
