01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

Minnesota Talks Voter ID

Written by

(AP) Former Democratic Vice President Walter Mondale and former Republican Gov. Arne Carlson are offering themselves as the public face of a fight against a Minnesota constitutional amendment requiring voters to present photo IDs at the polls. The pair was introduced today as two of four co-chairs of the Our Vote Our Future coalition's campaign against the ballot measure. Voters will decide in November whether to make government-issued photo identification essential to election participation. The advisory committee is decidedly heavy with former Democratic officeholders. But Carlson says he thinks moderate Republicans will turn against the proposed amendment when they delve into uncertainties over implementation costs and logistics.  Mondale told a news conference that he believes the requirement is intended to discourage voting. Supporters argue it's a guard against voter fraud.

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.
