UP: Dave Mahoney. The Dane County sheriff drew national attention and became a hero to many when he boldly defied Gov. Scott Walker's efforts to lock the public out of the Capitol. Mahoney pulled his officers from the Capitol detail, saying he wouldn't let them be used as "palace guards."

DOWN: Wisconsin. Gov. Scott Walker unveils a budget plan that punishes just about everyone, except highways. Walker makes particularly brutal cuts to education and health care. And, in an effort to squelch protests, the governor locks the Capitol to the general public, defying a court order to keep it open.
