Seriously Drunk Driver Faces First OWI

Written by

There are drunk drivers and there are the 'how did she do that?' drivers. A woman arrested by La Crosse police over the weekend falls into the latter category. Police say the 35 year old woman hopped a curb and hit a street sign on Sunday afternoon on the northside. Didn't do well on the field sobriety tests, but she was able to hold herself upright. Surprising, considering she blew a .34 on the breathalyzer, over four times the legal limit to drive. The woman refused to admit she had been drinking and said she was coming from her job at a bar.

Cuts Coming Possible Coming to Extension Offices

Written by

UW-Extension services statewide are expected to lose about $6.9 million if Governor Scott Walker s university system budget cuts are approved. In addition, the budget proposal includes targeted cuts to Cooperative Extension, including sharp cuts in funding for environmental education programs, which would lose another $1.2 million.

Dean of Cooperative Extension, Rick Klemme says some staff cuts could be coming.......or vacant positions like in La Crosse just won't be filled.

 

According to Klemme, the resulting deficit would be equivalent to roughly 80 county based positions or 50 campus based positions statewide.

Kind Approves of VA Changes

Written by

The new leadership at the VA facility in Tomah continues to implement change, a month and a half after being brought in to take on the task. A new 30 day plan at the VA addresses not only how the medical center can better improve care for veterans, but it also aims to give employees more of a voice without fear of speaking out. The 30 Day Plan will also address a needed cultural change in how the facility operates.

Congressman Ron Kind says no matter whther he's in Wisconsin or Washington D.C., he's keeping tabs on the place.

 

The 30 day plan includes holding listening sessions with employees, and talking with patients regarding their needs. A major emphasis will be promoting better interaction between leadership and staff. That according to newly appointed acting director John Rohrer.

La Crosse TIF District to Retire

Written by

Doesn't happen very often. One of La Crosse's sometimes controversial TIF loan districts will be retired this summer, according to documents just released by the city. The so-called airport TIF was put in place nearly 30 years ago to fund improvements to the airport and build the next door industrial park. All of the tax revenue from that special district will now go to benefit taxpayers, says city council finance committee chair, Audrey Kader

Kader says property taxpayers should see some positive impact from the retiring TIF on next year's tax bills. But the economic impact from the district will continue long after that.

UW-L Track Wins it All at National Meet

Written by

CANTON, N.Y. – Total domination doesn’t quite sum up what the UW-La Crosse men’s track and field team has done to all of Division III.

Saturday, the Eagles won the national title. Again. For the 13th season – an NCAA record. But it wasn’t just the men this time. The women had their say as well, winning their third NCAA outdoor title – the third time a school has captured both men's and women's championships in the same year.
