Man With Airgun Triggers Campus Closure

Written by


WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) The man who carried an air gun on the campus of Carroll University and triggered a lockdown has been released and cited for disorderly conduct. The college sent text alerts and emails to students to stay inside school buildings Tuesday after at least two people reported seeing a man with a gun on campus. Several Waukesha public schools in the area also kept students inside.

Waukesha Police Capt. Ron Oremus said Wednesday the man found the non-lethal weapon in the garbage and was carrying it back to his apartment when he was spotted on campus. Oremus says police believe the man had no ill intent, but the citation was issued because his actions caused ``a stir.''

Heavily-armed officers approached the man's apartment complex with guns drawn and arrested him.

UW-GB Investigation Continues

Written by

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The father of a University of Wisconsin-Green Bay basketball player is speaking out in support of coach Brian Wardle. The university announced last week that it had launched an investigation of Wardle after receiving a complaint from the parents of a former player.

Orrin Brown is the father of junior center Alec Brown. He says that his son has never been mistreated by Wardle or complained about him.

But it's also not certain that Alec Brown will return to Green Bay next season. His father says he is thinking about turning professional. The deadline to declare for the NBA draft is April 28.

Lawmakers Want Robo Calls Gone To Those On List

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin lawmakers are considering a proposal to allow residents to stay on the state's do-not-call list permanently, without having to re-register. Currently, residents must register every two years to stay on the list. The proposal from Sen. Sheila Harsdorf and Rep. Andre Jacque also would ban political robocalls made to people on the list.

Do-not-call regulations already bar most machine-dialed calls, but calls from nonprofit groups, including political parties, are exempt. Harsdorf and Jacque said that they have received numerous complaints about political robocalls.

Sandy Chalmers of the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says there will still be problems with robocalls that come from overseas. She says many scam artists offering low credit card rates or free trips don't honor no-call lists.

La Crosse's newest mayor says every citizen of the community is important...

And in his inaugural address, Tim Kabat says successes at city hall will be shared by everyone.

 

Kabat says La Crosse faces many challenges...citing too much poverty in the city, and the need to rebuild neighborhoods. Besides having a new mayor in charge, the city council now has a new president, too, with Dick Swantz defeating Audrey Kader for that position, by a 12-to-5 vote.
