Local Deer Harvest Totals

Written by
For some area counties, there wasn't much of a bump from last year's nine-day gun deer harvest totals in Wisconsin. Overall, the DNR says, state harvest is up 11 percent over last year's abysmal totals. But in La Crosse county, the total harvest number was actually down slightly from last season. In Vernon county, the total shrank by more than one percent. Jackson total, down by four percent. Nearly ten percent down in Monroe county. Trempealeau county deer harvest totals increased by four percent.

Rockslide Cleanup Done At Genoa

Written by
He can't guarantee that it won't happen again...

But Wisconsin D-O-T maintenance specialist Pete Strachan says the Thanksgiving rockslide near Genoa was much bigger than the normal slides in the area. Strachan says boulders the size of a pickup tumbled onto Highway 35.  The road was blocked for most of Thanksgiving morning, and some stones knocked out power lines in Vernon County.   

On Monday, highway workers finished the job of breaking up those rocks and hauling them away. Strachan gives credit to Vernon and Crawford Counties and to Xcel Energy for their quick response to the rockslide and power outage.

No Call Deadline Tonight

Written by

The next deadline to register for Wisconsin's no-call list to block calls from telemarketers is tonight at 11:59.

Those who sign up through the day will have their phone numbers put on the list starting January 1st. The next chance to sign up won't place numbers on the list until April 1st.

The list is open to home and cell numbers, but registration must be renewed every two years. Anyone who has forgotten when they signed up can sign up again to be safe. More than 2.2 million numbers are on the list. That is the most since the program began in 2003. Nearly half of the numbers registered in this year's fourth quarter were cell numbers.


Sign up by calling 1-866-966-2255 or over the Internet.

No Fees Here

Written by
In this day and age of school districts trying to find more and more extra monies......it would seem odd not to charge activity and athletic fees to bolster the school's coffers. If you look at some districts around the state.....they charge $300 for High School.....$200 for Middle School and some a $500 Family Cap.

But the question is..........who can afford that anymore. One reason the Lacrosse School District charges their students nothing to participate in plays or sports.

 

Matter of fact it's like that throughout the MVC. Logan A.D. Steve Hole says a great booster club.....team fundraisers and strong district budgets have been the keys to helping students "not have to sit on the sidelines" and watch.

The Gundersen Lutheran nursing family recently kicked off its fifth annual blanket drive titled, “Wrapping the Community in Warmth.” The nursing sponsored blanket drive, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Western Campus for Nursing and Gundersen Lutheran Partners, runs from now until Jan. 14, to help many local organizations during the winter season including the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, New Horizons, Birth Right, St. Clare Health Mission, Community Liaison, Gerard Hall, Houston County Women’s Resource Center and Northeast Iowa Community Action Corporation.

Part of Renewable Portfolio for Xcel Shelved

Written by
Renewable energy is all the rage for Xcel energy in Wisconsin. Or, it was, anyway. The energy company has pulled the plug on a renewable energy production project in north Wisconsin. Xcel had originally intended to build a biomass gasification plant in one of three units at the company's Bay Front Power Plant. But higher costs and uncertainty about future regulations were among the variables that led to the project getting shelved. Xcel will still burn biomass in a more conventional process at the plant's remaining two units.

Hearing Coming on Ethics

Written by

Yes, to a quasi-judicial hearing.   No, to a long one.   Essentially the decision from La Crosse's Ethics Board regarding alleged ethics missteps by mayor Matt Harter.   The board has agreed to allow a short, possibly one day hearing for new evidence to be presented by those who have filed an ethics complaint against the mayor.   Among other limits, the board has stipulated that any new evidence must directly pertain to issues outlined in a report by an outside law firm that was released in the summer.   That hearing should be held soon.

Minnesota Recount Done In Some Counties

Written by
For several Minnesota counties, the great recount of 2010 is finished.

Houston and Winona Counties are among those which recounted all their ballots in the governor's race on the first day of the statewide canvass. The Winona County Auditor, Sue Rivers, says that other than having to retrieve ballots from one machine, her staff's recount proceeded with almost nothing changing.  One contested vote went to Democrat Mark Dayton. 

Statewide, the Democrat's lead over rival Tom Emmer has gone up 24 votes after one day of recounts. But more than 300 ballots have been challenged so far.

United Way Close To Goal

Written by
The prizes included Badger Hockey Tickets, a one year membership to the YMCA, a new wardrobe to Macy's sponsored by Macy's, 14K White Gold Diamond Earrings and shopping spree sponsored by Quillins. All incentives to help the Great Rivers United Way make their goal of $ 2 million dollars.

So Dan Hanson.....are you close? 76% there.

 

He says those monies and hopefully more, will be split up among 28 different non profit organizations throughout the Coulee Region.

You have about a month to help the United Way hit the 100% mark.

Money Time For UW-L???

Written by
Wisconsin lawmakers will be asked to limit increases in U-W tuition and most student fees to four-percent a year. The proposal comes from the incoming chairman of the Assembly Colleges Committee, Whitewater Republican Steve Nass. Aide Mike Mikalsen said Nass realizes that the U-W is trying to get more students to graduate – and that why he proposed a fee cap that’s twice the inflation rate.

The four-percent figure is smaller than any of the annual tuition-and-fee increases since at least 2001. U-W officials say they need higher tuition revenues to make up for losses in the state’s support.

Mikalsen said if the U-W proposes its own ideas for budget cuts, it will be helpful.........but if they come to the table saying ‘We’re the economic engine for the state and you need to give us more money,’ then it’s going to be a difficult time in the next two years.
