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.

Mailboxes are the only structure that private owners are allowed to install within the right-of-way without a permit as a matter of convenience to the landowners. Neither the St. Croix County Highway Department nor U.S. Postal Service issue written permits for the placement of mailboxes within the public right-of-way.
