Sometimes, when things are working well, you have to wonder why people want to change the way things work. Such is the case with lawmakers in Madison, who want to...

But the La Crosse City Clerk's office isn't making a prediction about how many voters could cast ballots in a special recall race tomorrow. City council president Audrey Kader is being opposed for her 11th district council seat by Gage Maurer and Jerome Gundersen. Kader is accused of trying to limit the amount of public comment at city council meetings, and of ignoring the wishes of the public. Just one polling place will be open for the election...St. Paul's Lutheran Church, on West Avenue. If no one gets more than 50 per cent of the vote on Tuesday, there will be a second election in late February.
A judge from out-of-county will be assigned to try a town of Campbell man who made threats against one La Crosse judge.
All of the judges in La Crosse County are recusing themselves from the case of Raymond Smith Jr., who allegedly threatened to harm Judge Ramona Gonzalez during a talk with a counselor. Smith's attorney, Kyle Davis, says it's unfair to bar his client from the courthouse or other public buildings, claiming that would make Smith a "court-ordered recluse." Judge Elliott Levine says Smith can enter county buildings, if he has a specific appointment in one of those buildings. Smith's cash bond was reduced by more than half, to 10-thousand dollars.
