UW Regents Approve Budget

Written by

The UW Board of Regents decided Thursday to seek funding for 22 building and maintenance projects at campuses throughout the state. A $672 million dollar capital budget is being considered separately from the budget which runs the schools themselves. Some, according to UW-Regent, Brent Smith, will go towards Cowley Hall on the UW-La Crosse campus.

Other projects according to the La Crosse Attorney......a new Meat and Muscle biology lab, plus renovations for the Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research and Babcock Hall and a new chemistry and biology building at UW Stevens Point. The entire budget, approved by the regents, now goes to the Department of Administration.

Senator Ron Johnson got some news coverage for the Romney campaign at an event in Madison yesterday...attended by almost all of the Madison media outlets.

WTDY Radio reporter Dylan Brogan says he was kept out of the Monona Terrace event by Romney staffers.  He says a Wisconsin representative of the Romney campaign specifically barred him, claiming 'guilt by association,' because WTDY talk host Sly in the Morning organized an anti-Johnson protest last month.

 

Brogan says police escorted him from the building. The protest by Sly, involving the display of Chinese flags, happened last month in Janesville at a campaign event featuring Johnson and Congressman Paul Ryan.

They're closer together now, but still not in the same jail.

A Lake Mills woman and her adult daughter remain jailed in separate counties, on charges of causing a Trempealeau man's drug death last year. Michelle Johnson was moved from Jefferson County, near Madison, to the Chippewa County jail, while daughter Tasha Kempfer has been transferred from La Crosse to Trempealeau County. Kempfer's original bond of 100-thousand dollars was cut in half to 50-thousand during a court hearing on Wednesday. Johnson's bond is also at 50-grand. The women allegedly gave Jeremiah Harris some heroin that they picked up in Madison, and he died of an overdose before returning to Trempealeau.

Here Comes New West Nile Virus Strain

Written by

So far we have heard the nation is on track to witness the worst outbreak of West Nile Virus ever. But La Crosse County Vecotor Control Agent, Dave Geske, says as people are aware of the old virus......here comes the new.

While it is unclear why this year has been harder hit than others, many think it is possibly because of the weather. It is possible that the mild winter and the hot summer also increase the number of mosquitoes, which spread the virus. Only one bird has been found in our county with the virus so far.

What To Do With Dead Birds

Written by

One dead bird with West Nile Virus has been found in La Crosse County. But who actually goes and gets the bird for study?

Amy Gab-Ril-Ska with Animal Control says after they retrieve the birds found, they send them off for sampling. She advises if you find a dead bird, to cover it up with a trash can or plastic bin...and call animal control.

State Investigating Lake Delton Dye Job

Written by

A La Crosse company specializing in lake health is suddenly on the other end of a microscope.  Aquatic Engineering and the village of Lake Delton is under investigation by the state department of Ag.  Aquatic engineering is the company that dumped five hundred gallons of blue dye into Lake Delton last month in order to temporarily hide a distasteful water color apparently caused by an algae bloom.  Neither the village or Aquatic Engineering got a permit for the dye job but the company says it didn't need one because the dye is not a pesticide or toxic in any way.  The village paid about thirty thousand dollars to turn its lake blue for a few weeks.

New Teaching Rules And Local Comments

Written by

Individuals who want to teach in Wisconsin schools may be able to do so without traditional certification. State Superintendent Tony Evers says that a new equivalency license will allow those with at least three years of teaching experience in a private setting or in a childcare facility to get into the public school system. La Crosse Schools Superintendent, Randy Nelson, likes the new approach.

Candidates would be required to pass a performance based assessment. Governor Walker addressed the new plan with enthusiasm saying it will help get qualified teachers into high need areas.
