ELLSWORTH - No could remember the last time Somerset's High School football team was dominated so completely. That's because it had been a long while. No. 4 ranked Ellsworth handed No. 2 Somerset its worst Middle Border Conference defeat since a 26-0 blanking by Amery back in 2006 which also happens to be the last season the Panthers beat the Spartans.
MADISON - Governor Scott Walker has vowed to step up oversight of taxpayer-supported programs, saving the state money and sending a clear message.
