randall cobb for a 9 yard td and a 7-0 lead. check out the snow angel by number 18! for the 2nd straight week, the packers "d" played well-holding an offensively- challenged offense to 13 points. julius peppers with 6 and a half sacks! rodgers threw for 209 yards. 118 of 'em were gained by jordy nelson on 8 catches..wide open after a receiver fell down..a 32 yard score! 14-7 green bay in the 4th quarter. yard drive! it took the pack 11 games to get somebody not named aaron rodgers to score a rushing td. once again, aaron ripkowski does the honor from 3 yards out. that capped off an 89 yard drive. packers 21, texans 13. tim van vooren on the blitz. "it is truly six of one and half dozen of the other now for the packers. they're at six wins and six losses after knocking off the houston texans on an unusual day that looked like it could go either way." "the long drives offensively in the fourth quarter is what really stands out as far as our performance there. defense, the point total, keeping them down to thirteen points. and that's
for." "it was just one of those games that was kind of a weird game but we stuck with it and guys stepped up. another big drive at the end of the game in the fourth quarter like we did last week in philly and that's what we talked about before we started. we wanted to do it again and finish that way." "our last two drives were back on the two and the ten or eleven so for us to put together two drives over 180 yards of offense was pretty special. we had a couple good drives last week to close the game out and did the same this week." "so now it's back to the nfc for the packers. nothing but conference games the rest of the way. the final three are division games. green bay has to keep winning, ge a settles. in green bay at lambeau field, tim van vooren, fox six sports."

which gets us to this story about big box stores. many are appealing their assessed values in an attempt to pay lower property taxes--a move costing local municipalities millions of dollars each year. it's an issue we'll be hearing more about in wisconsin. fox 6's brittany shannon looks into the dark store theory and how it could affect you. shopping the big box store. a place where you can find almost anything. and in the dozens of options. "theyre choosing this location because its desirable and its going to be beneficial to their company 22:54 " but mayor kathleen ehley says... big box stores are becoming bad business for local government. "it would make me very hesitant to support a big box coming in 26:41" in the past four years, stores like target, lowes and firestone have sued the city of wauwatosa. claiming
high by using a tax strategy called 'the dark store theory.' "its a store thats dark. its a store that has no lights on" pleasant prairie assessor, rocco vita, says stores want assessors, like himself, to value their businesses the same as a closed or dark store. "now all of a sudden just for property tax purposes we have to consider using sales of vacant or of value for good thriving locations" this target in the village was constructed in 2006 for 15 million dollars. the village assessed it around 12 million. but target claims its only worth 6.5. "if municipalities begin lowering values because of this dark store strategy there will be a shift in taxes 09" a shift to homeowners. pleasant prairie estimates homeowners would see an increase
property taxes. in wauwatosa...taxpaye rs would see a jump of nearly 400 dollars. "people do need to be aware of this" the city is currently facing 12 appeals from big box stores. like lowes—asses sed at 16 million dollars. but the company says...its only worth seven million. the nordstrom is assessed at 29.9 million. but the stores opinion of value is just 10.8. the fight has cost wauwatosa 275 thousand dollars past four years. "think of what we could do in our community with 275000 dollars" tax attorney, don millis, represents about 60 stores across the state including wauwatosas target and nordstrom. he says big box store properties are specificcally branded, making resale difficult. "the issue is what is it worth to the market 07 and we know when the lowes
its going to sell for a lot less than what walmart put into it and thats just life" this target on brown deer road closed earlier this year. its listed price is 2.5 million dollars. the dark store theory argues properties like this one should be comparable to similar sized operating stores. "what i object to is what assessors are saying is that the mere fact that a property is vacant makes it thats what the law and i dont think thats what appraisers would argue" "doesnt sound fair. intuitively it doesn't make any sense" for that reason, curt witynski with the league of wisconsin municipalities, is working closely with legislators, drafting a bill to close this tax loophole. "unless this legislation passes, there would be some noticeable effects over the next couple of years where this tax shift would happen" thats why local governments have also passed resolutions asking for help.
to provide clarity for our assessors because thats really whats being questioned." a loophole with the potential to cost homeowners big bucks when big boxes go dark. brittany shannon fox 6 news. day four of the election recount in wisconsin.. has hillary clinton picked up any more votes? how about president-elect donald trump? the latest totals .. and will we be done on time? and tragedy in california. the death toll from a dance party is
