One year after the town of Campbell purchased an old church on Lakeshore Drive, the town board still has not settled on a developer to turn the building into a library.

Board members opened bids for the project this week, but did not award the contract yet. Some or all of the four bidders could be interviewed at a special meeting next week. The lowest bid for the library construction is about 80-thousand dollars. Campbell leaders plan to move the library branch out of the town hall on French Island, in order to expand the emergency management office.

Deputy Home After Getting Hit By Car

Written by

A sheriff’s deputy is home from the hospital, after a vehicle slammed into his squad car on a snowy freeway in southern Wisconsin.

Columbia County deputy Michael Schultz was helping motorists who slid off Interstate 39-90-94 and he had just returned to his squad car when it was hit by another motorist who lost control. The squad had its emergency lights on at the time.

 

Schultz was treated at a hospital and later released. The driver who struck him, 19 year old Alexis Rox of La Crosse, was not injured. The crash happened Monday night.

High Stakes Tests Frowned Upon

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Lawmakers are considering a bill that would do away with high-stakes graduation exams for high school students. Instead, students would take tests designed to gauge whether they are ready for college or the workforce. The tests wouldn't require a certain score to get a diploma and that's something some Republican lawmakers and business owners disagree with.

Republican Sen. Roger Chamberlain of Lino Lakes says many agree some reform is needed, but getting rid of benchmarks is baffling.

Democratic Sen. Kevin Dahle of Northfield says a group of educators voted in November to drop the graduation tests and he'll resist efforts to a certain score a prerequisite to a diploma. Under the bill, students would start taking college readiness exams in eighth grade.

Badger State Growing

Written by

MILWAUKEE (AP) A new U.S. Census Bureau report says Wisconsin's population is growing. The latest figures show the state's population grew by about 39,000 since the 2010 census to about 5.7 million residents. Dane County experienced strong growth with nearly 40 percent of the state's increase attributed to that county.

Brown and Milwaukee counties also posted gains. Brown County added more than 5,000 residents to see 2 percent growth. Milwaukee County added 7,400 people with less than 1 percent growth. The population in St. Croix County, which hugs the Minnesota border, grew about 1 percent, adding 900 people since 2010.

The population in half of Wisconsin's 72 counties declined since 2010.

Wolf Moratorium Sought

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Opponents of wolf hunting are going before a Minnesota Senate panel to call for a five-year moratorium on future wolf seasons.

The Senate Environment and Energy Committee will hear from both sides Thursday on the contentious issue. Hunters and trappers killed 413 wolves during the state's recent wolf season, which was the first since wolves in the western Great Lakes region came off the endangered list early last year.

The anti-wolf hunting group Howling for Wolves says Minnesota's original wolf management plan called for a five-year wait after wolves came off the list until the resumption of sport hunting. The Legislature canceled that moratorium last year when it authorized the first season. Wolf hunting supporters say the years of court battles that held up ``delisting'' made further delays unnecessary.
