2 Out Of 3 School Referendums Pass

Written by
School referendums were a hot ticket in some voting areas of Western Wisconsin yesterday.

Onalaska voters approved giving the school district $4.2 million over the next 3 years. The owner of a $100 thousand property will pay $45 more for school property taxes in 2011-12, $36 more the second year and $38 more the third year.

Melrose-Mindoro voters said yes to a referendum there that will give the school district $425 thousand a year for 3 years.

Not the same in Independence though as, by a two to one margin, voters did not approve a $1.2 million referendum. It would would’ve replaced a referendum approved in April 2007.

La Crosse Sees Large Rallies Against Walker Union Bill

Written by

If Wisconsin's new Republican leaders seem determined to pass a bill of union restrictions quickly...union leaders are just as determined to stop it.

The chant 'Kill the bill' went up repeatedly at La Crosse's Riverside Park last night, during a labor rally that drew hundreds of spectators. County Board member Tara Johnson says Governor Walker's budget plan is 'malicious' and would cut pay for 300-thousand state workers.

Earlier in the day, a smaller group of picketers booed and yelled at Governor Scott Walker as he left a local steel girder plant in Muddy Flats.

Refused Grant Would Have Sped Internet in La Crosse

Written by
A big federal grant to expand broadband internet in Wisconsin would have made connections a little swifter in the La Crosse library system. The libraries in the city and county are all connected to the internet with copper. A $23 million federal grant that has been refused by Wisconsin would have helped hook up schools, libraries and other buildings in the state with fiber optics. Apparently disagreements about who would own the fiber infrastructure derailed the grant.

The courtroom was nearly full on Monday, when a La Crosse County deputy appeared for the first time on a vehicular homicide charge.

Some, including past and present members of local law enforcement, were there in support of Deputy Trisha Stratman. Many others in court were friends and relatives of accident victim Brandon Jennings, the 16-year-old who died last summer when Stratman's squad car slammed into his car at a high rate of speed.

Judge David Rice of Monroe County set no unusual conditions for the deputy's five thousand dollar signature bond. District attorney Tim Gruenke was in his office during the brief hearing, having excused himself from the case to avoid conflict of interest.

Light Voter Turnout No Surprise Today

Written by

Teri Lehrke is shooting high. But the La Crosse city clerk still doubts citywide turnout in today's primary voting will be much about the seven to ten percent range.   Higher, she says, in those city council districts that have primaries.   Districts 7, 10, 12, 13 and 15 all have primaries today. The rest of the city of La Crosse has only the state supreme court on the ballot.

In Onalaska, a three year, multi-million dollar school funding referendum is expected to push voter turnout a little higher.

Union Rally in La Crosse

Written by
They're rallying in the capitol and they're rallying in La Crosse as well. Union reps are flooding the capitol in Madison this week, trying to blunt plans by governor Walker to cancel many collective bargaining rights of most public workers in the state. Tonight in La Crosse, union reps gather in Riverside Park at seven to rally against the proposed changes that would roll back decades-worth of gains made by unions in negotiations. The proposed changes from governor Walker would affect all public workers except police and fire fighters.

Do Not Attempt This Driving Stunt After Drinking

Written by
Among the many drunk drivers collared by La Crosse police this week-end, there was Troy Bjorge, working on his third drunk driving arrest. Police found him stuck in a snow bank on the southside in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The 27 year-old explained it this way to the officer: He was trying to impress his girlfriend by driving his truck onto the snowbank and then backing off. Said he'd done it before but this time, apparently, just went a little too far. And, police say, probably drinking a little too much to be driving in the first place.
