The author of a new report on Governor Jim Doyle's re-election fundraising efforts says voters should be worried about the increase in tribal gaming money pouring into the governor's campaign war chest. The report by the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign shows the top donors to the Doyle campaign are all from the Dennis Troha family, who are also the biggest financial backers of a proposed tribal casino in Kenosha. Over the last three years, Troha family members from both Wisconsin and Illinois have given more than $200,000 to the Governor's campaign.
Fire that heavily damaged a house at 620 Spring Street in Somerset Sunday is being investigated by the State Fire Marshal's Office and police. Somerset Fire Chief Travis Belisle said the call came in at about 9 p.m. "It was a fully involved house fire," he said. Belisle said the fire is considered suspicious and that's why the state fire marshal was called in. Additional details could not be released until the investigation is completed, he said. "I think we'll wait and see what comes of the state fire marshal's investigation and go from there," he said.
More than 2,100 Wisconsin residents have signed up to become disaster volunteers for the Red Cross since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita pounded the Gulf Coast last year.

It surpasses the state's goal of adding at least a thousand new disaster volunteers after last year's hurricanes. Marianne Muzzi coordinates Red Cross volunteers for seven counties in south-central Wisconsin.
