Deer Feeding Ban On In Minnesota

Written by

Starting Monday, Dodge, Goodhue, Olmsted and Wabasha counties in Minnesota will be under a deer feeding ban as part of an effort to fight chronic wasting disease in the state. A wild deer killed near Pine Island last November tested positive for the disease.

Minnesota DNR big-game coordinator Lou Cornicelli says CWD testing has gone on now for a while.

 

The feeding ban is meant to reduce deer-to-deer transmission of the disease by reducing the amount of locations where they would concentrate.

Union Accuses Governor Of 'Attack' On State Workers

Written by
A 'brazen attack' on the middle class...

That's how La Crosse Democrat Jennifer Shilling describes Governor Walker's bill to reform negotiations with state employees. Republican Walker has cancelled the extensions on five contracts that expired two years ago. State Rep Shilling says the Walker bill will wreck decades of negotiations between the state and its workers. Former state labor negotiator Joe Wineke says state workers also may find it harder to settle grievances.  Wineke says a typical state employee making 50-thousand dollars a year would lose nearly three thousand dollars in income, through Walker's plan.

Loggers Bash Brings in $70K

Written by
The UW-L baseball program is breathing a bit easier today after it was announced that the Lacrosse Loggers winter BBQ raised just over $70 thousand for the college program. Loggers GM Chris Goodell said the response was above his expectations.

 

The event drew just over one thousand fans and was highlighted by Hall of Famers Robin Yount and Paul Molitor as well as former Milwaukee Brewer teammates Jim Gantner and Jerry Augustine, who played baseball at UW-L. Sponsors include Kwik Trip and the Friends of Baseball at UW-L Committee.

No censure, no reprimand, not even a fine for La Crosse mayor Matt Harter. A sharply divided city council voted to follow the city's ethics board and not punish the mayor for his ethical malfeasance in meetings with the county solid waste director last year. Not the outcome wanted by just less than half of the city council who voted to censure the mayor. A punishment sought by Jai Johnson who said it was the least that the council should pursue in rebuke of the mayor's actions. 

Although no punishment for the mayor from the city council, he has agreed to pursue an ethics certification from Viterbo.

 Those voting for censure, proposed by 4th district city council member, Jai Johnson(failed on 8-7 vote): Johnson, Andrea Richmond, Chris Olson, Eric Schmidt, Bob Seaquist, Marilyn Wigdahl and Dick Swantz.  

 

Voting to uphold the recommendations of the Ethics Board and the Judiciary and Administration committee(passed on 8-7 vote): Al Wagner, John Satory, Bob Seaquist, Doug Farmer, Bruce Ranis, Bernie Maney, Tom Sweeney, Lorraine Decker

Appeals Court Rules Against Men Hurt In Speedway Crash

Written by
If you get hurt in a racetrack accident at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway, it's not the Speedway's fault.

That's what a state appeals court says in a ruling today. The court is upholding a La Crosse County court decision supporting the Speedway in a lawsuit filed by two men hurt eight years ago by a racecar that entered the infield. Charles Beer and Darin Toot tried to sue the Speedway for damages, claiming the liability waiver was void, and contrary to public policy. But the circuit court and appeals court both ruled that the release form is valid.

Primary Ballot Sees Bounty of Council Seats in La Crosse

Written by
It's been awhile since there's been this many primary elections in La Crosse city council races. At least ten years since there were as many as the five primaries on Tuesday's ballot. That's half of the total number of council seats on the ballot in April and two of those are uncontested. City council members Doug Farmer in district 10, Bruce Ranis in district 12, And Lorraine Decker in district 15 all face two challengers on Tuesday. In district 7, three are running to fill a seat left vacant when Mike Larsen quit in the fall. District 13 has three looking to replace Bernie Maney who just recently announced he was done with a fifty year run on the council.

MVC Caught Up in DNR Grant Review

Written by
Much of the work of one local group is on hold after a move in Madison this week. The DNR has temporarily curtailed conservation grants during a review of the state's land stewardship program as mandated by the Walker administration. Those are grants that are heavily used by the Mississippi Valley Conservancy and there's a number of projects in the works right now, says MVC director, Tim Jacobson that may require those grants.  His group has used over six million dollars in state grants to protect from development over three thousand acres in the region.

CapX 2020 Knew Negatives Were Coming

Written by

As we told you this morning, the applications submitted to the Wisconsin PSC by the group CapX 2020 were rejected due to inaccurate and missing information about the high voltage power line project. A group that opposes the entire project, The Citizens Energy Task Force, claims that CapX 2020 is not concerned about the effects the power line will have on Wisconsin tourism and landowners.

 

Not true says Tom Hillstrom. He says they have worked with the Wisconsin DOT for a year and a half now to choose those two routes and the rejection of their application was expected.

CapX2020 is a massive ultra high voltage power line project that would come from the coal burning plants in the Dakotas traveling across the Mississippi River – crossing at Alma then traveling south to Holmen and Onalaska, over homes, through the La Crosse area and on to Madison. Once in North La Crosse, CapX is proposed to link into a line that would be built by American Transmission Company called the Badger Coulee Line.  This line could travel through scenic southwest Wisconsin farmland and the Kickapoo Valley Reserve as it barrels into Madison – and then to the East, aiming for Chicago and beyond.

Huebsch Says Jobs Are Coming

Written by
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said he will add 250 thousand new jobs and 10 thousand new businesses in four years. Democrats in the state don't think he is even close to adding a single job yet. But republicans in the state say bills including tax credits and a sweeping proposal to give businesses new protections from lawsuits is adding them as we speak.

Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch says a new approach is being taken. He says the governor is moving in the direction of providing an enviroment where people want to create jobs and grow and build here.

 

State republicans say they want they want to help businesses grow and expand.....and they will. Democrats are keeping a watchful eye in Madison.

Cost of Governor's Race in Wisconsin: $37 million

Written by

It takes more than a pretty smile and some snazzy clothes to become governor in Wisconsin. It took Scott Walker $11 million. That's how much the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign says the Republican spent on his campaign to become governor. Over $37 million spent by all candidates and outside groups in the race. And that money, says the Democracy Campaign's Mike McCabe, came from less than one percent of the people in the state. 

Also, the $37 million is just the documented amount from the race, says McCabe. He thinks there was likely much more than that spent on the governor's race.
