Incomplete police chase data raises suspicions

01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

It's a plan to save two billion dollars a year...but many customers of the postal service don't like the plan.

The post office has announced it will end most Saturday mail delivery this summer. U-S-P-S spokesman Pete Nowacki in Minneapolis says the effect on La Crosse area post offices has not been calculated, but around the U.S., it could save more than 20,000 jobs.

 

Positions the postal service hopes it won't have to eliminate, if the money can be saved. A decline in 'snail mail' usage and the expense of a federally-mandated pension plan have been cited as reasons for the service cutback.

Are There Minnesota State Pay Raises Coming

Written by

 

(AP) State senators will vote on a new contract for state employees that would give thousands of workers their first raise in years. The contract up for approval Thursday would give thousands of state employees a 2 percent pay hike the first in 3 1/2 years. The contract covers seven different working groups, including the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 5 and the Minnesota Association of Professional Employees.

A Senate and House subcommittee recommended approving the contract last month. The House is expected to vote on the contract sometime next week.

The contract will expire June 30. Negotiations for the next deal just started. Gov. Mark Dayton says he will push to include same-sex domestic partnership benefits in that contract.

Onalaska Committee Hears Testimony On Prayer

Written by

The Onalaska judiciary and administration committee heard quite a bit of public comment last night on prayers before council meetings but in the end, voted to send the proposal without a recommendation to the full city council. The idea of prayer before council meetings was brought to light last month by Council member Jack Pogreba.

 

Committee members Diane Wulf and Erik Sjolander both said they could not back the idea but councilman, Dan Ferries said he would support the idea. All 3 said they could possibly consider a moment of silence or reflection before a city council meeting. No votes were taken last night and the committee, without recommendation, moved to pass it on to the full council and Mayor Joe Chilsen.

 

The Onalaska city council will consider the proposal at it's meeting next Tuesday night.
