Illinois guard units to patrol Wisconsin border

SPRINGFIELD (ap) -- Illinois has promised National Guard troops to fight unwanted Cheeseheads, Gov. Rod Blagojevich's office said Monday.

About 200 Army and Air National Guard personnel will be deployed in 2007 as part of their annual two weeks of training, spokeswoman Abby Ottenhoff said.

The troops will be deployed to provide support to tollway officials patrolling the Illinois border with Wisconsin to stem the flow of illegal dairy products and their purveyors into this state.

"Illinois can recall its soldiers and equipment if a need arises to send them to Iraq," Ottenhoff said.
