Lax Council Sets Kader Recall For January 29

Written by

Voters in one La Crosse neighborhood might have three city elections in five weeks this winter.

The city council has scheduled a recall election for January 29th for Audrey Kader's 11th district seat. If more than two people decide to run, a second election will happen a month later...just a week after the regular spring primary. Recall organizers accuse Kader of trying to take away the public's right to speak at city meetings.

Candidates who want to challenge Kader have until this Wednesday to file papers with the city clerk's office.

The wager is between Madison Mayor Paul Soglin and Palo Alto Mayor Yiaway Yeh. The losing mayor will wear the opposing team's hat during a Common Council meeting, and will display the flag of the winning team for a day in January. The losing city will also organize a tree planting in honor of the winning team.

Soglin says he's confident the Badgers will come through for Madison.

Rybak Sings Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now

Written by

(AP) Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is ready to announce whether he wants to try to hang onto the office. Rybak will declare his intentions Thursday. His third term as head of Minnesota's largest city expires after next year.

The Democrat has led the city of almost 400,000 people for more than a decade. Several potential candidates have expressed interest in running, although some were waiting on the incumbent's plans.

The 57-year-old has been mentioned as a possible addition to President Barack Obama's administration or a future contender for governor.

Since Rybak took over, the city has undergone a dramatic transformation. Two major sports stadiums have been built and a third is on the way. Rybak also took a visible role in the aftermath of the Interstate 35W bridge collapse.

Senior Care Renewed

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin's SeniorCare prescription drug program for senior citizens has been granted another waiver from the federal government to continue operating until at least 2015. The waiver is needed so the state can run the program outside of Medicare Part D. The current waiver was granted in 2009 and set to expire at the end of the year. Gov. Scott Walker announced the renewal Thursday.

The program began in 2002 and provides discounted prescription drugs for Wisconsin residents who are 65 years old or older and meet eligibility criteria. There is a $30 annual enrollment fee with copayments ranging from $5 to $15.

SeniorCare is wildly popular largely because there are no gaps in coverage it is more comprehensive and less expensive than Medicare Part D.

They've been waiting almost two years for this report...

 

Holmen village officials could hear next week about what level of fluoride in tap water is officially preferred by the Wisconsin health department. Public works director Dean Olson says the unofficial word is that fluoride levels will be lowered...so a temporary fluoridation shutdown ordered in Holmen could be reversed.

 

In April of last year, newly-elected board members in Holmen voted to suspend fluoridation, just days after it was started as the result of a 2008 referendum.  That vote followed a federal EPA report calling for reduced fluoride in water systems.
