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  He says the sign rules--like so many others in the village--are simply out of date.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.

Jasper, Texas Angler Claims Top Prize

Written by

Jasper, Texas is pretty proud of their very own Todd Faircloth today. As he ventures to the Bassmasters Elite Tourny in Green Bay this week...he takes with him a $100 thousand paycheck. That, after winning the Elite Tourny in La Crosse held over the weekend. Fairlcoth said that he, in no way, thought he would win after a rough day Sunday.

And he did just that. A three and a half pounder with 15 minutes to go in the tourny. He topped Cliff Pace by over a pound.

Three weeks of testimony have ended...and the Eric Koula murder trial could reach its finish sometime on Monday.

Jurors will get the case after closing arguments in La Crosse County Court. Eric consistently denies killing his parents for money, but he has admitted to lying about a forged check and a threatening note.  Eric claims he was shopping for an anniversary present for his wife at the hour that police believe the murders occurred in Barre Mills. The defense suggests that professional killers must have shot Eric's parents, because very little physical evidence was left behind at the crime scene.
