NORAD 'tracks' Santa's 
journey across globe
Dreaming of a white Christmas?
Go West

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Volunteers at the North American Aerospace Defense Command are pretending to monitor Santa Claus as he makes his storybook Christmas Eve flight. So far, NORAD says it used the heat signature from Rudolph's nose to "track" St. Nick over spots ranging from Australia to South America and on to the United States.

NEW YORK - If it's a white Christmas you're after, you'd better follow this familiar advice: Go West. Snow will be falling in the western U.S. on Thursday, with anywhere from 2 to 6 inches in the valleys up to a foot in higher elevations in northern California, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana, according to the National Weather Service.

 

 

No. 17 Wisconsin hopes program back on steady ground Rodgers plays Santa 
for Packers offensive line
MADISON - The Wisconsin Badgers have received a crash course in just how much of a business college sports can be. The hiring of new coach Paul Chryst has them hoping the program is back on solid footing - again. Now the No. 17 Badgers can return to focusing on football. The team is scheduled to arrive in Florida on Friday to begin preparation for the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day against No. 19 Auburn.

 

GREEN BAY - Newly picked to the Pro Bowl, Aaron Rodgers practiced on his sore left calf Wednesday before returning to a locker room full of Christmas gifts. Brand new 55-inch curved screen televisions sat in cardboard boxes, tokens of appreciation from the Packers' franchise quarterback to the offensive line and backup QBs.

 

 

Lawmaker wants change to Wisconsin judge terms Streaming release of 'Interview' 
test for industry
MADISON - Wisconsin lawmakers will likely weigh legislation next year that would require judges to leave the bench when they turn 75. Republican Rep. Dean Knudson, of Hudson, said he plans to introduce the measure in the upcoming session. If it passes the GOP-run Legislature, three Supreme Court justices and many lower court judges would be forced to retire, a news outlet reported. ATLANTA - Sony's "The Interview" has been a hacking target, a punchline and a political lightning rod. Now, with its release online at the same time it debuts in theaters, it has a new role: a test for a new kind of movie release. "The Interview" stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as journalists tasked by the CIA with killing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Its Christmas Day release was canceled by Sony after threats of violence by hackers linked to North Korea.
Country star Lee to reunite 
with Packers' pal Cobb
Wisconsin concrete 
plant fined after worker dies
GREEN BAY - Sunday's big NFC North showdown at Lambeau Field will reunite a pair of Tennessee football buddies, but one is putting on a solo performance. Country singer Jackie Lee will perform the national anthem before the Green Bay Packers-Detroit Lions game. After that, his former high school teammate Randall Cobb will take the field as a star receiver for the Packers as they try for the division championship.

 

PORTAGE - Federal authorities have fined a Wisconsin concrete plant $21,000 after a worker was crushed and killed by concrete in February. Wieser Concrete Products in Portage received citations for three serious violations following an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a news outlet reported. The probe began after Mike Kittle, 29, was killed by a falling concrete form on Feb. 28.

Bad Santa? 5 tips to tackle your holiday gift returns
As anyone who's received a drugstore cologne gift set well knows, even Santa Claus gets it wrong sometimes. Friends and relatives? Yes, them too. Hence the throng of customers who flock to shopping malls soon after the holidays to exchange or return less-than-ideal presents. Retailers generally try to accommodate their wishes, or provide store credit. But it's not always easy.

TODAY IN SPORTS
Packers, Steelers, Panthers choices to win their divisions
Mike McCarthy can't wait for Sunday. Can't blame him. The thought of clinching the NFC North at Lambeau Field certainly is an enticing one. McCarthy's Packers can do so with a victory over the Lions, whose recent history in Green Bay is, well, dismal. Detroit has not won there since 1991. And the Pack is 7-0 at Lambeau this season.

EVENT
