You are not necessarily what your costume says you are. A guy that La Crosse police arrested this week-end would have done well to remember that. Cops say the 23 year-old was in the entrance of a parking ramp about an hour after bar-time during a night of Halloween fun this week-end. He was drunkenly yelling profanities at a passing woman, police say, and costumed as the Joker from Batman. When asked by an officer for his name, this Joker had a few more choice things to say. Things just kind of escalated from there. The Joker wound up getting tazed by the cop and taken to jail, no assistance from Batman required.
Governor Walker freely admits he's trying to make the DNR permit process more business friendly. That's at the root of his plan to streamline things at the agency
Legislation under consideration in Madison would, among other things, limit public input on permitting and give automatic approval for permits if the DNR doesn't rule on them within 30 days.

Was Dennis Koula planning to stop giving money to his children, just before he was murdered last year?
A statement by Koula about being 'done giving to the kids' can be introduced as evidence at the murder trial of his son, Eric. Judge Scott Horne says he'll instruct the jury at trial that the statement can be viewed as showing Dennis's state of mind. But Horne says it can't be used to establish a possible motive for the murders of Dennis and his wife, Merna.
Investigators believe Eric Koula shot his parents to get money, after going into debt trading stocks. He had received a million dollars from his father in the months before the murders.
