Though the savings may just be a few hundred dollars
This is quite a cash grab by La Crosse's Mayor. Tim Kabat shocked those working in the local tourism industry when he decided the city should get more of the...
The La Crosse fire department not only exceeded its overtime budget from last year. The department blew through it. That's among the information we gleaned from a summary of pay and overtime in the city from last year.
An area man convicted of sexual assault could not persuade an appeals court that he was mentally ill, or had another medical condition that justified a new trial or a different sentence.
Appeals judges have upheld the conviction and appeal of 60-year-old Darryl Pruett of Trempealeau County. Pruett is almost halfway through a nine-year prison term for sexually assaulting an underage girl. He wanted to withdraw his guilty plea, claiming insanity. But the appeals court did not find justification for that claim. They also rejected Pruett's argument that a thyroid condition was not taken into account when he was sentenced.
Familiar campaign territory today for Tommy Thompson and Newt Gingrich.
Both men spoke this morning at Logistics Health in La Crosse. Thompson, running for U-S Senate, was president of L-H-I for a few years...and former House speaker Gingrich visits La Crosse often because his wife Calista is from the area. Thompson hopes Wisconsin voters are paying attention to the Senate primary, because he thinks many people got tired of politics after the Walker recall race in June. And Gingrich is 'very comfortable' in feeling that voters will want to remove President Obama from office this fall.
Larry Schaffer's decision to enter a plea on murder charges came pretty quickly...
That's according to Monroe County District Attorney Dan Cary, who had made plea offers to Schaffer before a hearing on Monday. Schaffer was scheduled to be tried this month for the apparently drug-related murders of a Sparta couple in 2002. He pleads 'no contest' to the deaths, and could get a dozen or more years in prison. Cary says many key witnesses in the case either have died, or may have forgotten important details about the murders.
Clearly, not everyone in La Crosse has heard about the city's new garbage regulations. Or, at least, has skipped over some of the details of the ordinance revisions that took more than a year to develop. One of those is the restriction against putting any electronics curbside. That piece was written in to deal with the rash of broken tube-style televisions that have been put out with the trash in recent years. Like this one we noted outside of an apartment complex this morning on King street.
On the same day they vote for president, La Crosse taxpayers could be asked to spend 15-million dollars to build a new north-side elementary school.
The La Crosse school board has voted to draw up referendum language which could be put on the November ballot. Board members would have to decide by August 24th whether to actually have a referendum. The immediate goal is to replace Franklin Elementary in north La Crosse, which some board members have described as 'decrepit' and structurally bad.
The referendum discussion was the main item of business on a shortened school board agenda last night. Electrical problems in the Hogan auditorium forced the board to move its meeting to a second-floor room, and board president Connie Troyanek said the building's electricity could be shut down at any time.
To some, changes out of Madison that were made in Wisconsin the past year have been both good and bad. Senate Republican Candidate, Bill Feehan, says he has seen more good then bad. And that could be good for jobs in the future.
Feehan also says he likes the aggresive nature of Governor Scott Walker, as did many living in the state that helped Walker win a recall election.
As of this week, 48 percent of the U.S. corn crop is in poor or very poor condition. The price of corn hit a record high last week, eclipsing the eight dollar mark. It's the drought conditions in the Midwest, the worst since the 1980s that are being called the cause. Pam Jahnke with the Wisconsin Farm Report, says selling corn now can be a risk worth taking.
As for the field corn, the impacts could be widespread. It is used in cattle feed where an impact has already been felt. When feed gets more expensive, the price for a cow drops as they become more difficult to feed. Another major player Jahnke says that could take a hit is the food industry. Corn, corn syrups and starches are found in many of the foods we eat. Higher field corn prices could mean higher prices at the grocery store for consumers.
