Gun Advocates Eager for Change They Can Believe In

Written by
Don't think that gun toting advocates in Wisconsin have stopped smiling yet. Onalaska's Hubert Hoffman is vice president of Wisconsin Carry Inc. And he's more than a bit optimistic about the possibility of a new state law allowing concealed carry with Republicans sweeping to power in Madison after Tuesday's voting. Although he recognizes the process might have to be put on hold due to Republican campaign promises about balancing budgets, cutting government spending and stopping the high speed rail line.   But, after that, Hoffman expects concealed carry to become law relatively quickly. Probably within a year.

Alternate Side Parking Experiment, Year Two

Written by
Last year should be considered a test year for suspending alternate side parking rules in an area around UW La Crosse.

This year: Another test year. City public works director Dale Hexom says that's because last winter only had a few snow emergencies and ended abruptly.   And that, he says, wasn't enough to determine if lifting regular alternate side parking rules was a process they wanted to keep permanently.

 

In the exempt area, cars only have to adhere to alternate side parking rules during events like snow emergencies, leaf pick-up and street sweeping.

Special Committee to Negotiate Bliss Repairs Likely

Written by
 A meeting of the minds over a washed out La Crosse road is closer to happening now.   A city council committee has approved a special group to have a sit down with surrounding towns over fixing Bliss Road that runs up to Grandad Bluff. City council member Bob Seaquist would be on the committee. He would like to repair Bliss completely.   Very tricky and expensive, he agrees.  And that expense is why the city wants to get together with town governments; city council members are hoping to share the costs of the repairs.

Recount? Maybe. Minnesotans Wait on Canvassers

Written by
Automatic recount time again in Minnesota. At least it looks that way right now in the very close governor's race. Final tally in the race won't be known until the state's canvassing board meets later this month. And if the final count is within a half of a percent of total votes, it's auto recount time.  Secretary of state Mark Ritchie says that recount can be waived by the candidate who lags in the vote totals.  Taxpayers foot the bill for the automatic vote recount.   Currently and unofficially, just about nine thousand votes separate democrat Mark Dayton and Republican Tom Emmer.

Kind Calls for Compromise

Written by
A divided congress now. Different agendas among democrats and Republicans. Neither probably willing to give much ground after yesterday's elections. What's the next move?  La Crosse democratic congressman Ron Kind says it's time to come together and make compromise although he hasn't said where those compromises might be.  Kind seemed to be the exception in holding on to his seat Tuesday admidst a wave of Republican challengers coming into office, flipping control of the US House to GOP control.

Pondering Another Go After Losing Election 2nd Time

Written by
The second time didn't do it for Cheryl Hancock. The Holmen democrat was turned away again in her bid to unseat Mike Huebsch in the 94th assembly race. Could third time be the charm? Hancock says it's too early to make the call about another run. But she knows it may take that many times to gain support from people in the district.  Hancock recalls a conversation with former assembly state rep, Virgil Roberts who reminded her it took Huebsch three times to beat him.  Hancock says people were more receptive to her during campaiging door-to-door this time around than when she lost to to Huebsch in the last election.

Wisconsin Hmong To Elect Clan President For First Time

Written by
Many people living in Wisconsin will get to vote in two elections this week.

Besides today's balloting for state and national offices, an election for president of Hmong clans in Wisconsin is happening on Saturday. Houa Vang of Sheboygan, an organizer of the first-ever vote, says a clan council president can help settle domestic disputes in Hmong families instead of calling in local government.  Until now, the president of the Hmong group in Wisconsin had been chosen by a well-known Hmong leader. Voting in the La Crosse area will be done at the Hmong Cultural Center on Ward Avenue.

Charges Could Be Filed This Month in Holmen Crash

Written by
The decision is getting 'closer,' we're told...

The Wisconsin Attorney General's office may announce in a week or two whether charges will be filed because of a fatal car crash in Holmen this summer. A La Crosse County deputy and a high school student collided on Highway 35 late at night, while the deputy was heading to a police call in a squad car. The student, 16-year-old Brandon Jennings, was killed. Deputy Trisha Stratman was placed on leave for several weeks after the crash, before returning to office duty.
