WRJC Radio - Mauston, Juneau County, Wisconsin http://www.wrjc.com Wed, 30 Jul 2014 23:17:53 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Packers GM Inks Extension http://www.wrjc.com/sports/packers-gm-inks-extension/ http://www.wrjc.com/sports/packers-gm-inks-extension/#comments Wed, 30 Jul 2014 23:17:53 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=93400 More >]]> The general manager of the Green Bay Packers has signed a multi-year contract extension.  The Packers gave no details of Ted Thompson’s new deal today.  He had two years left on his current contract.  Team president Mark Murphy said Thompson’s work was the main reason the Packers have had so much success in recent years.  He’s into his tenth season as Green Bay’s G-M.  Thompson said he wouldn’t want to walk away from his current post, saying he’s responsible for the people he works with.  The 61-year-old G-M said he’s been asked a lot if he ever thought about walking away — and he hasn’t.  Asked how long he wants to remain as the G-M, Thompson said he’ll let things play themselves out — and a lot of people can be very productive later in life.

UW-Madison won’t delay fall fraternity recruitment http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/uw-madison-wont-delay-fall-fraternity-recruitment/ http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/uw-madison-wont-delay-fall-fraternity-recruitment/#comments Wed, 30 Jul 2014 16:05:58 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=93385 More >]]> MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The University of Wisconsin-Madison has decided not to move forward with a proposal to delay fall recruiting for its fraternities and sororities. The Wisconsin State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1zvgvVD ) a committee decided Tuesday that the proposed changes were unwarranted. They said such restrictions would single out Greek organizations if they weren’t also required of the other student organizations on campus. Complaints received by the school’s student life office stemmed from the overlap of the fall recruitment period with Jewish holidays. Female freshmen students said they were unable to make a long-term commitment to a sorority while they were busy with religious celebrations. The committee included representatives from the school’s Greek organizations, university housing and others. The group met during last school year to begin deciding whether or not to delay recruitment until October or spring semester. There are 58 fraternities and sororities at UW-Madison.

(AP) – The Wisconsin state chamber of commerce is wading into the ongoing debate in the governor’s race over outsourcing. Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce president Kurt Bauer issued a statement Wednesday saying the real issue in the debate is which candidate for governor supports reducing the costs of production in the state. The statement doesn’t name either candidate, but WMC has been a strong supporter of Republican Gov. Scott Walker. The governor and Democratic challenger Mary Burke have been arguing the past two weeks over outsourcing, giving state tax breaks to companies that send jobs overseas, and Burke’s role at Trek which manufacturers most of its bikes outside of the U.S. Bauer, in his statement, tries to shift the focus of the debate onto the cost of doing business in the state.
