Priest Investigated In Minnesota

Written by
(AP) The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has relieved a priest of his duties while police investigate allegations of abuse. St. Paul police arrested 47-year-old Curtis Wehmeyer, of Oakdale, after a juvenile male told investigators he had been assaulted over a two-year period. Wehmeyer has not been charged with a crime. He served as pastor at the Parish of the Blessed Sacrament on St. Paul's east side. The archdiocese told parishioners about the allegations over the weekend.

Click It Or Ticket Works REAL Well

Written by

During a recent Monroe County Sheriff’s Department Click It or Ticket mobilization event, 6 people were handed tickets for not wearing their seatbelts, the primary function of the mobilization. But what others were nailed for really made the event worthwhile. Deputies handed out 39 speeding violations, made 6 drunken driving and 2 drug arrests, made 3 felony arrests and locked up 3 others for warrants. Sheriff, Pete Quirin, said that the goal during Click It or Ticket and for the rest of year is not to write more tickets but to convince drivers and passengers to buckle up every trip, every time.

Bloedorn to Resign From Council

Written by
A city council member in La Crosse is resigning.  Jim Bloedorn says he'll leave the council by next Tuesday.  In his resignation letter to the mayor dated Monday, Bloedorn says he bought a house elsewhere in the district and plans to be moved in by next week.  Bloedorn has served on the council for several years and has been a strong opponent to what he has often called the overuse of TIF district financing in La Crosse.   Bloedorn has also been a strong ally of mayor Harter and has typically been one of the few voting to sustain Harter's numerous vetos.

Holmen Sign Rules Get Updates

Written by

First it was the city of La Crosse.  Then the county.  Then Onalaska.  Now, Holmen is closing in on new sign regulations.  Including updated rules for electronic signs

 

 

Village adminstrator Scott Heinig.  He says the sign rules--like so many others in the village--are simply out of date.  While other local governments are tackling issues surrounding electronic billboards, that won't be an issue in Holmen; the village doesn't permit any billboards at all.

Wisconsin Pension System Maybe Not All That

Written by
How healthy is Wisconsin's state pension system?  The healthiest.  A Pew study of all state pension systems finds that Wisconsin's is the only one that is fully funded.  Meaning that obligations for retirees are being fully met by the state.  Not quite, according to other studies, which find that the figures that Pew bases its evaluation on are supplied by the states and not always accurate.  Like with Wisconsin, which one group found was deeply in debt and only 60 percent funded, based on actual accounting principles that privately-managed pensions use.

Adrian Wydeven can remember when there were only a few wolves wandering around in Wisconsin.  A few dozen at the most.  The most recent count, says the DNR biologist, is a far cry from that; nearly nine hundred wolves.  Or somewhere around that

 

 

Wydeven believes a hunt this fall could get the state closer to the goal of 350 wolves this fall.

Todd Faircloth, the winner of the Bassmasters Elite Tourny held in La Crosse this weekend, will take his $100 thousand winning check to Green bay with him. An area that some are not familiar with. One that has been there before, Kevin Van Damm, the best angler ever to hit the waters, says he WAS excited about the event.....before the state got involved.

Van Damm says they would love to come back to the La Crosse again....as for other parts of Wisconsin...that may not happen. Van Damm finished 13th in the Elite tourny....1 spot shy of making the top 12 and fishing one more day.
