UW-L Chancellor Worried About Heroin Popularity

Written by

As the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse campus comes alive with students once again, one looming thought crosses Chancellor, Joe Gow's mind.

Gow says he and other local college heads met recently with La Crosse Police interim Chief, Rob Abraham about the growing heroine problem in the city. The main concern says Gow is not on the campus but off campus where people rob and steal to get money to buy the drug.

RNC Says Wisconsinites Were Fooled

Written by

Governor Scott Walker's recall win this year shows that the republican numbers are there for the state to cast their votes towards the Romney/Ryan ticket in November. That's according to Matt Rhodes with the Romney campaign. Rhodes also said over a million people were fooled 4 years ago.

Rhodes also says with the number of people who came out to vote for Walker in the dead of summer with election fatigue...it once again shows how strong the support is for the republican party in the state.

Many bars and restaurants fought against smoke-free dining laws for Wisconsin...

But a new statewide survey shows that people working at those businesses feel healthier now because of the two-year-old tobacco ban. La Crosse County health educator Judi Zabel says restaurant and bar staffers have said they're happy not to go home with smoky-smelling clothes.  The survey also shows that only one-third of Wisconsin residents are now exposed to smoke outside the home. The percentage was over 50 per cent when the law took effect.

No open burning in Onalaska, for now...

The Onalaska Fire Department has issued a ban on open fires in the city and parts of surrounding towns, until further notice. One measure of the fire danger in Onalaska is at its highest level. All of La Crosse County is within a 'very high' danger zone for fires, according to the Wisconsin DNR, while almost all of the state that's south of La Crosse County is at a 'high' risk level.

It's up to the state justice department now, to decide whether the La Crosse County administrator should be charged with a crime...

The La Crosse Tea Party says its complaint about administrator Steve O'Malley has been referred by the La Crosse County D-A to the Justice Department, to avoid conflict of interest. The county ethics board did not punish O'Malley for his efforts to pass a La Crosse city referendum calling for the hiring of a city administrator. Opponents of the referendum claim the failed issue was an attempt to take powers away from Mayor Matt Harter...and they say e-mails and other documents prove that O'Malley broke a county ordinance against trying to seek donations for a political campaign. The ethics board did not rule on that specific ordinance.
