Child Trafficking Take Center Stage

Written by

(AP) Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen wants to make ending child trafficking a priority in the next year. He says he wants to hire five full-time employees, including three special agents and two criminal analysts, who would work to fight child sex trafficking.

In addition, he wants to hold more training for law enforcement, prosecutors, and victim and witness coordinators and to work with lawmakers to draft human trafficking-related legislation. Van Hollen asked for more than $900,000 in his department's two-year budget request.

Gov. Scott Walker's spokesman Cullen Werwie said the governor's office is reviewing it. Van Hollen's spokeswoman Dana Brueck says the department doesn't have statistics on the scope of the problem in Wisconsin. But she says it would naive to think it isn't happening.

Feehan Enters Race For La Crosse Mayor

Written by

Recent State Senate candidate Bill Feehan has launched a campaign for mayor of La Crosse.  Feehan was the Republican nominee against Jennifer Shilling in the 32nd District Senate election this fall.  He told a group of supporters at the Radisson on Saturday that people have urged him to run for mayor on the April ballot.  Feehan lists his top priorities as public safety, economic growth, and reducing property taxes.  He believes that his Senate campaign will help him with name recognition in a field of about a dozen candidates for mayor.

Gun Sales Up In Wisconsin

Written by

(AP) If background checks are any indication, Wisconsin's gun sales seem to be up. Total sales figures for firearms don't exist. But a good yardstick is the number of background checks when a gun is purchased.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice's background check hotline for handgun purchases has handled 60 percent more calls year to date as of Dec. 23 than it did for the same period last year. And the total number of calls this year has far surpassed all of 2011.

There also appeared to be a spike after the Connecticut shooting Dec. 14. State figures show for the week of Dec. 9 to 15, the hotline handled more than 3,700 calls. That number jumped to nearly 6,000 the week after.

Arcadia Helps

Written by

A small Wisconsin community near the Minnesota border is paying tribute to the 20 children killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting. Supreme Graphics, based in Arcadia, created a display of photographs of the children and teddy bears and put it in the middle of town.

Company chief executive officer and president Chuck Blaschko says they wanted to do something because they felt so bad about the tragedy.

It went up last week Friday, about 30 minutes before Wisconsin's statewide moment of silence.
