KKK T-shirts Catch Eye of ACLU

Written by
A response to controversial t-shirts in a western WIsconsin school district has drawn the attention of civil rights advocates. The Wisconsin ACLU says it will investigate how The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau school district handled the situation at the end of the school year that involved several students wearing KKK t-shirts. Those students will apparently face school discipline and maybe criminal charges for the t-shirts. But the ACLU questions whether the students' civil rights were violated. The group says the students' "expression of their religious or political beliefs is constitutionally protected." The group also says just because the t-shirts were considered offensive that alone would not give the school grounds to punish kids for wearing them.

Former DNR Secretary Doubts Cougar Cover Up Claims

Written by
Until recently, the presence of cougars in Wisconsin hasn't been a big topic of conversation for the state's DNR. But that might soon change. Because the big cats are moving in, says George Meyer, director of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation.  Meyer, who used to be DNR secretary in Wisconsin, says his old agency has been very cautious to confirm reports of cougars in the state, lacking significant physical evidence but he doubts the DNR has tried to cover up the existence of the big cats in Wisconsin.

By this point, parts of the La Crosse school district are a full-on construction zone. Doesn't take long to get that point in the summer, says district buildings and grounds chief, Joe Ledvina.  He says, as soon as kids leave for summer vacation, crews are standing by to start tearing things apart.   The district is still doing work paid for through a referendum from a couple of years ago. This summer, among many other projects, it's heating and air conditioning systems at Summit and Hintgen elementary and tennis courts at Logan high.

Cougar in Juneau Prowls, Consumes

Written by
You better believe they're talking all about the cougar in Wonewoc. The little town in Juneau county is right about where a cougar has mauled its way through a couple horses, two sheep, a cow and several deer so far.  The DNR and US Fish and Wildlife are apparently trying to track the big cat.  There have been no reported attacks on pets or people at this point.

Yes, We've Noticed the New Water Charge, Too

Written by
Taken a good look at your La Crosse water bill recently? The new fire hydrant charge should be on there. For most in La Crosse, it's an additional eight bucks or so on your bill that's new this year. It's to pay for adequate water flow in fire emergencies, says city public works director, Dale Hexom.  The amount of the fire charge is based on the size of water meters. And normally tax exempt properties are not exempt from the new utility charge

Green Light for Green Projects

Written by

LaCrosse county will use stimulus money to fund three green projects.  Last night the LaCrosse county board passed a resolution to bring in over 219 thousand dollars in grant money to help pay for a solar water heater in the jail and at Lakeview Care Center.  That will take up two hundred grand of the grant.  The remainder will be used to help rotary lights chance to energy efficient L.E.D. bulbs.  Even though the measure passed board members who opposed funding for the rotary lights project cited reasons such as the lights aren't american made, the light display doesn't cover all religions and a few others don't like the idea of the county picking and choosing which charities get money.

Kind: Response to Gulf Improving

Written by
No, you haven't seen the fastest federal response during the gulf oil spill. But La Crosse congressman Ron Kind sees that changing. Although he cautions against feeling too much optimism about immediate results.   He says, with a disaster of this magnitude, if resources are tossed at it indiscriminately, there's bound to be shortcomings in results.  Kind says, although the clean-up is finally beginning to show progress, it's demoralizing to those involved when they know that ever more oil is spilling daily into the gulf.
