    That’s because our job growth has trailed the national average 22 straight quarters, every single quarter since Gov. Walker created the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC). 
    There is

    Dear Editor:
    It is refreshing to me to learn that legislation is being introduced to lift Wisconsin’s long-standing moratorium on metallic mineral mining. 
    We here in northern Wisconsin can potentially share in the economic gains that our neighbors in northern Minnesota and Michigan are looking forward to with current mining projects under development.
