    Hopper, Thiesfeldt, talked to Fond du Lac police
    FOND DU LAC - A parade with more than 50 entries will now be down two participants.

    Fond du Lac police say the tension in Madison has spawned threats, they and lawmakers are acting on...."We've taken them all seriously and we're happy to say that none of them have panned out yet here in Fond du Lac, so we're still vigilant," Deputy Chief Kevin Lemke said.

    State Senator Randy Hopper and State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt, both Republicans, have decided not to march in the city's St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday.

    Hopper was among the Republican lawmakers who received death threats, in connection to the battle over collective bargaining and fixing a budget deficit....Deputy Chief Kevin Lemke says officers advised Hopper not to attend.

    The parade will start at 3:00 p.m. at Rees and Main and move south down Main Street. It is meant to be a family affair, but this year will have a significant police presence.
