The village of Holmen could move another step closer this week to restoring fluoridation...

Village board members had hoped to resume the chemical treatment in the water system by April 1st, following a two-year suspension. But the board also approved a switch in the type of chemical used for preventing tooth decay. And Dean Olson in the public works office says a committee will have to decide whether a switch is worth the anticipated cost.  Olson says it's definitely too late to put another fluoride referendum on the Holmen ballot for this April. That might have to wait until a scheduled election in 2014.

Houston Water Problems

Written by

The City of Houston will be forced to shut off water to everyone in town on Thursday morning at 9 AM. The primary water main serving the city on Grant Street has a major break. It is unknown how long thew water will be off. The city says they will be working diligently to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

Home owners on the city water supply may want to stock up on water by pre-bottling it or purchasing bottled water. You will be able to flush your toilet but it will not refill the tank. Another hint from the city........pre-fill your bathtub with water and you can use a bucket to refill your toilet tank when necessary.

 

If you have any questions, contact the Houston City Offices.

Minnesota Is Aging

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota is headed toward a significant milestone in which more of its residents are senior citizens than school-aged.

State Demographer Susan Brower told a panel of senior legislators on Monday that Minnesota is on course to reach that point in 2020. It represents the point when those older than 65 years are a bigger share of the state population than those between 5 and 17 years old.

The demographic trends are important because they suggest where future budget pressures lie. Medical and long-term care costs the state subsidizes are already rising fast, crowding out available money for other things. And more retirees mean fewer income tax dollars will be coming in.

Wolf Hunt Rules Coming?

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Democratic state senator is circulating a bill that would prohibit wolf hunters from using dogs.

Sen. Fred Risser of Madison sent an email to his fellow lawmakers on Monday asking for co-sponsors. He notes in the email that humane societies oppose the use of dogs in the wolf hunt.

A group of humane societies filed a lawsuit in August alleging state wildlife officials failed to impose any restrictions on using and training dogs on wolves. A Dane County judge issued a temporary injunction that blocked the use of dogs during the wolf season. In January the judge approved dog use during the hunt but barred training them on wolves.

Risser's bill has little chance of passing. Republicans control both the Senate and Assembly.

Child Care Now Online

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The performance of child care providers in Wisconsin can now be found online.

The state has started posting the fines levied against the child care centers and the reasons for the fines. The move is backed by child care advocates and providers. The state began posting the fines online in 2008, but not the amount of the fine or any explanation.

Mosinee child care provider Anneliese Sheahan says it was unfair not to post the amount of the fine. She says there's a big difference between a $100 fine and a $1,000 fine.

Thirty-one states now post child care inspection reports online. Wisconsin's website is at http://www.dcf.wisconsin.gov/youngstar.
