Just three more weeks of recall season in Wisconsin, and one candidate will be happy to see it end.
Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch will be happy especially if she prevails in the June 5th recall. Kleefisch tells WIZM's La Crosse Talk that if she and Governor Walker keep their jobs in the recall election, they'll be immune to further recall attempts for the next two-and-a-half years. Kleefisch believes it's 'frustrating' for voters to be asked to take part in as many recall elections and special races as Wisconsin has seen in the last two years.
Frederick Lomprey IV isn't doing anything to further endear himself to La Crosse police. Cops last week sent out notice that Lomprey is a wanted man, looking for help from the public to find him. Lomprey appears to be on the run and in need of money. In the last several days he's broken into the houses of old friends, stealing some of their electronics, presumably to pawn for cash. The 27 year-old Lomprey was wanted for several other crimes prior to the recent thefts and appears to be still in the area.
La Crosse police say they've got a thieving stripper at large. They say the 25 year-old woman was contacted by a fellow putting together a bachelor party for his friend. She goes by Randi or Lacey Daily. The guys found her online and she was advertising "sugar and spice and everything nice." But when Randi showed for the party she collected her hundred dollar fee and left in the same taxi she came in. No sugar, no spice and no stripping. When they find Randi, they'll get her for theft and probably for breaking the new city rule requiring an escort license. That's a 13 hundred dollar fine.
He thought he was going to a meeting about Freedom Honor Flights...
But Steve Christiansen learned a few months ago that an important job was waiting for him...Commodore of La Crosse's Riverfest.
Christiansen is the C-E-O of Merchants Bank in La Crosse and Onalaska, and moved to La Crosse from Caledonia less than 10 years ago. He and his wife Pat were introduced as the newest presiding couple of Riverfest today...about a month-and-a-half before the July 3rd start of the yearly festival at La Crosse's Riverside Park.
READ AFTER NOON!
A new Minnesota Vikings Stadium bill was signed at noon today....and Winona Republican Senator, Jeremy MIller, was asked who will all benefit from the building of a new stadium.
Also, the Minneapolis City Council still needs to vote to approve its share of the stadium financing. The city's contribution is expected to be $150 million for construction and another $189 million for operating costs over the life of the deal, not including interest payments. Governor Mark Dayton's signature on the bill kickstarts a 30 day timeline for the council to give its approval.
