The campaign to stay in office is done...so the campaign to grow jobs resumes full-time for Governor Scott Walker.

 

The governor's first tour of Wisconsin since winning the recall vote last week brought him to Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse today. Walker has been to the medical center repeatedly since helping the staff break ground for its large new addition, which will add a few hundred jobs.  This morning, Walker examined a simulated emergency room and tried a device for practicing surgery...and jokingly wondered if the experience could get him an appearance on the TV doctor show 'Grey's Anatomy.'

One of the reasons given for having new garbage regulations in La Crosse is to help clean up the neighborhoods that have a high percentage of rentals.  Washburn neighborhood is one of those.  But the Washburn Neighborhood Association president says, 'no thank you.'   Randy Magno has outlined a number of reasons that the city council should not pass new garbage regulations.  Magno says the winners of having new regulations will be garbage haulers like Harters' which will benefit from having a bunch of new dumpster customers.  While the losers will be taxpayers and landlords, says Magno.   Other winners, he says; scavengers who face new restrictions but won't be caught or prosecuted anyway; and those too lazy to dispose of their electronics properly.

You can sometimes smell the chlorine in the drinking water coming from your tap.  And that may not be such a bad thing.  In fact, a new Wisconsin study found several instances of human viruses showing up in water supplies that were not disinfected through chlorination or some other process.   La Crosse city water utility manger Mark Johnson says disinfection is key when doing water system repairs above ground

 

 

Water systems in Wisconsin typically use chlorine or ultraviolet light to disinfect water.  But there are 60 systems that use no disinfecting process at all.

Appling says internet gambling would particularly create new addictions among young people.

Testimony about cameras took up much of the time in court at the Eric Koula murder trial on Friday...

Jurors saw security videos from three different cameras at Bridgeview Plaza, taken on the afternoon in 2010 that Koula said he went there to shop for an anniversary present for his wife. But security videos don't show him going there, and investigators believe Koula was actually at his parents' home in Barre Mills at that time, fatally shooting his mother and father.

The jury also was told about another camera...one secretly installed by officers to monitor Eric Koula's house after the murders. Chief Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Wolf said the decision came after Eric claimed he had received a mysterious letter with the message 'Fixed You.'  The defense has confirmed that Eric wrote that note to himself. The trial resumes Monday morning in La Crosse County court.

Winona Plants Japanese Cherry Trees

Written by

An international celebration in Winona on Sunday, with the city welcoming visitors from Japan to help plant cherry trees donated to Winona by the Japanese government.

 

The main purpose of the celebration was to plant the trees in Lake Park. Kwetsu Sasaki is mayor of Misato, Winona's sister city in Japan. He says the gift to Winona has been in the works a long time, but was delayed.

Three dozen American cities are receiving the trees from Japan this year, marking the 100th anniversary of when cherry trees were donated to Washington, D-C.

Although small scale, up to 2,500 people, domestic operations exercises are held at Volk Field and Fort McCoy. But could they be coming to La Crosse in 2014? Volk Field and Fort McCoy have been selected as one of ten sites in the nation to do large scale domestic operations exercises. 5 to 8 thousand troops. Brendan Smith with Volk Field says it will allow local first responders to have hands on, real life mass casualty training, which in itself is a tremendous benefit to any community.

Other area venues being considered for exercises include the Juneau County Fairgrounds and Copeland Park in La Crosse. Smith says they are in the very beginning stages of talks with communities that could be involved.
