La Crosse County could choose its new Family Court Commissioner yet this week.  The county personnel office tells us that seven finalists were interviewed on Tuesday, and judges will choose a commissioner in the next few days.  The winning candidate will succeed Gloria Doyle, who has been elected circuit judge.  We're told that the new commissioner could start work the first week of August.

Jumping Worms Getting Full Attention of DNR

Written by
The DNR is getting serious about tackling the great jumping worm invasion in the state.  Officially here for just the last couple of years, they've probably been around much longer than that, says DNR forest health specialist Bernie Williams.  And, yes, jumping worms really do jump and thrash and make all kinds of not-so-worm-like movements.   Williams says it's too early to determine exactly what impact the jumping worms will have in the state but the worms do destroy surrounding vegetation.

County Jobless Rate Ticks Higher

Written by

Just one county in Wisconsin now with double digit unemployment rates.  That's the latest breakdown from the state's labor department.  Menominee county is the one county recording a jobless rate over 10 percent for May.  Far cry from La Crosse county's unemployment rate of four percent for May, which is higher than last month's 3.4 percent.  Despite the April to May dip, the state says all counties had lower unemployment rates last month than May of last year.

Gun Bill Sends Guns to School

Written by
Potentially more guns in schools in Wisconsin now.  Governor Walker on Wednesday signs a bill that allows off-duty, retired, and out-of-state police to carry guns in schools.  Sponsor republican state senator Van Wanggard says this is a law to cheer about because it will only lead to more safety in schools. Wanggard also sponsored the other gun bill that Walker signed on Wednesday; the one that gets rid of the state's decades-old 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.

Onalaska Celebration Born Out of Disappointment

Written by

For many years, Onalaska has gotten a jump on the 4th of July, by having some festivities a few days before the holiday.  This weekend, the pre-4th activities have been expanded into a full-blown three-day event called 'Celebrate Onalaska.'  One organizer of the festival, Erik Sjolander, says Celebrate Onalaska was inspired partly by last year's bad weather which cancelled the Festival Foods fireworks two nights in a row.  An unfortunate circumstance that turned into "Celebrate Onalaska" through a bunch of meetings and brainstorming.  

The celebration is based at Van Riper Park.  It begins on Friday with a fish fry and concerts.  The fireworks on Saturday night will follow shows by Pat McCurdy and Last Call.

Get Paid for Health Survey

Written by
Several hundred La Crosse county households will be invited to
participate in the University of Wisconsin's Survey of the Health of
Wisconsin. And as Sarah Spah, Director of the La Crosse County Health Department tells us, there's a bonus. You get reimbursed for the survey.   They're looking for over 200 respondents just in La Crosse county. 

 

Spah says the Survey of the Health of Wisconsin is a rich resource for health researchers around the world. The data and biological samples that SHOW has collected have been utilized to explore varied inquiries from hundreds of research teams throughout Wisconsin, nationally and internationally.

Does City Hall care about what businesses think?  One downtown La Crosse business representative wants the city parking board to ask ramp users for their opinions before making major policy changes.  Mark Hyde from US Bank is concerned that the board is not talking with the companies that lease portions of the ramp to find out what they want.  Hyde told board members about one company which said that having spaces reserved by name in the Main Street ramp was so important, they would not have put offices downtown if they couldn't get those spaces.

Three Face Robbery Charges

Written by

Three Sparta residents will be in court Thursday for bail hearings after being charged with robbing the Wayside Tavern there a few weeks ago.

Sparta police say a man ran off with money he stole from the Tavern on June 11th. Cops responded to a report of the robbery just before 11 p.m.  as they were told a man showed a handgun and demanded money. Nobody inside was hurt.

 

Arrested were 23 year old Courtney Stalsburg, 27 year old David Walton and 27 year old Cody Nelson. Most of the money that was stolen and a gun used in the crime have been recovered.

New City Planner Like Lebron James

Written by
How good is the pick of Jason Gilman to head La Crosse's planning office? At Tuesday's special city council meetings to confirm Gilman, mayor Tim Kabat talked about an email he got about the former longtime Onalaska city planner.  The email made reference to a well-known NBA star, saying the hire was like Lebron James coming home to Cleveland. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The city council confirmed Gilman unanimously. He'll be the first permanent planner in city hall since Larry Kirch left for another job last August.
