UPCOMING TODAY:

RURAL SCHOOLS-WISCONSIN

MARSHFIELD, Wis. — Three rural Wisconsin school districts have seen enrollment climb in recent years, a trend that's contrary to a majority of the state's shrinking districts. The growth has led to growing revenue, but problems with space and state funding means the schools have to figure out how to deal with the space. UPCOMING: 310 words by 9:30 a.m.

BEER COMMISSION

MADISON, Wis. — State brewers are behind legislation that would create a Wisconsin Beer Commission to market and promote their product. UPCOMING: 200 words by 10:30 a.m.

HEALTH OVERHAUL-WISCONSIN

MARSHFIELD, Wis. — Deadlines to sign up under Barack Obama's health care law are expected to soon cause a rush of applications for Wisconsinites who have BadgerCare Plus or Health Insurance Risk-Sharing Plan, or HIRSP. That's because they face an earlier application deadline — March 15 — to avoid a coverage gap. UPCOMING: 310 words by 11 a.m.
