Republicans risking conservative backlash over immigration



















NEW YORK - The push toward immigration votes in the House is intensifying the divide among Republicans on one of the party's most animating issues and fueling concerns that a voter backlash could cost the GOP control of the House in November.

for new Packers DC Mike Petttine

I'm a little more with the times," Pettine said.

Wisconsin woman discovers neighbor is family La Crosse yoga studio 
celebrates 30 years
EAU CLAIRE - "It's a small world." People use that expression all the time to signify coincidences large and small — they bump into someone from their hometown in a far-off place, learn their dentist was a childhood friend of their father or end up sitting next to a co-worker at a Green Bay Packers game. But few small-world tales can match the experience by Eau Claire residents Hillary Harris and Dawn Johnson, who were next-door neighbors when they discovered they are long-lost sisters. LA CROSSE - Yoga was about as novel a concept as pagers were back when Chris Saudek opened The Yoga Place, the first studio in La Crosse, three decades ago.
