The dire propane shortage in the state is prompting
Governor Scott Walker to ask President Barack Obama for help. Governor Walker
sent a letter to the White House yesterday, urging the President to establish
and lead a supply chain working group to move available propane to areas where
it's needed. In a statement, Governor Walker says the federal government has
been cooperative with assisting so far and is proposing the working group as a
follow-up. In addition to the shortage, experts say demand, weather and
temporary pipeline closures is to blame for the short supply of propane across
the Midwest... including Wisconsin.

Walworth County fire officials say they're trying to
determine what caused a four alarm fire that destroyed a barn at an egg farm on
Friday. Firefighters responded to the blaze at S-and-R Egg Farm in La Grange,
just before 8:00 P-M. Investigators say firewalls helped protect the fire from
spreading to other buildings. While a damage estimate has not been release,
reports indicate an estimated 300-thousand chickens were housed in the barn.
Founded in 1958, the family-owned business produces and distributes about two
million eggs a year.
