Wolf Hunt Petitions

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A group of humane societies has appealed a Dane County judge's ruling that wolf hunters can use dogs. The humane societies filed a lawsuit last year alleging the state Department of Natural Resources failed to impose any real restrictions on wolf hunters using dogs when the agency set up the framework for the wolf season. The societies argued the lack of regulations would create deadly wolf-dog brawls in the woods.

Judge Peter Anderson issued a double-sided decision this past January that hunters can't train dogs on wolves in Wisconsin but they can use them to track down wolves during the season.

The societies filed their notice of appeal on Friday.

Pack Heat And Eat

Written by

BROWNSDALE, Minn. (AP) The owner of a restaurant in small southern Minnesota city is offering a discount to customers `packing heat.' Steve Nagel owns Langtry Cafe in the Mower County community of Brownsdale. Nagel says every Thursday is ``conceal and carry day.'' Customers carrying their guns to the restaurant will get 15 percent off your meal. And if you carry a gun openly, it's a 25 percent discount.

Nagel's restaurant has hosted conceal-and-carry permit classes in the past. 2 classes next month are already sold out.

Nagel says most of his customers have a permit to carry, so he doesn't mind giving them a discounted meal for demonstrating their Second Amendment rights.

Voters of Holmen, consider yourself warned...

You have a full year to decide how you really feel about fluoridation, before the village puts another fluoride referendum on the ballot. The village board has authorized a new referendum for April of 2014 to settle the future of fluoridation, which was approved by voters five years ago, but shut down by the board after only a few days of operation. Board members have debated since January about whether to switch from a liquid fluoride formula to a powder that's considered safer, but the board voted on Thursday to go back to the old system in use before the suspension. It could take a couple of months before fluoride goes back into Holmen's tap water.

Holmen Ready To Join Lax Sewer System

Written by

The village of Holmen wants to join La Crosse's sewer system...

 

Faced with a growing demand for wastewater treatment, the Holmen village board has voted unanimously to link up to the sewer lines used by La Crosse and Onalaska. The DNR says joining a regional sewer system would be cheaper for Holmen than trying to upgrade or expand its own sewer plant, built 30 years ago. However, the cost to the village would still be about 12 million dollars. And the rates for sewer service would more than double for the average household, no matter which option was chosen by the village.
