Walker Signs Trashed.....Blamed On Senior Prank

Written by

He calls it a high school senior prank.....police may be calling it a crime. Monroe County Republican Chair, John Christy.

Sparta Police collected eight 4'x8' Scott Walker signs, 21 Walker yard signs, and four fence posts (still attached to the 4x8s) from the front lawn at Sparta Senior High School. Christy says none of the signs said Recall Walker or Vote for Barrett. Christy says with the damage to property, interfering with freedom of speech, and targeting Walker signs only, this is more than a senior prank. He is waiting to see what the school's administration and School Board does before taking further legal actions.

Packer Bus Tour Stop A Success

Written by

The Oktoberfest Southside Festgrounds were full of cheeseheads last night as the Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour made only their second ever stop here. The annual whirlwind tour of Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy and receiver Jordy Nelson, kicker Mason Crosby, and safety Charlie Peprah were joined by former players including Packers Hall of Famers fullback William Henderson, guard Marco Rivera, and center Larry McCarren.

Each Tailgate Tour party benefits the hosting non-profit organization. Children of the Heart was the local cause in La Crosse and secretary, Rachel Pearce, talked about the showing of hundreds of people.



The Packers wrapped up their three-day rookie orientation camp Sunday and on Monday, host a mini-camp for veterans and rookies. Green Bay signed all eight draft choices to contracts last week.

The push back against the growth of rental properties appears to be continuing in one La Crosse neighborhood.  The city council next month is getting asked to consider new restrictions on rentals in the Washburn neighborhood.  Just fine with Washburn neighborhood association president, Randy Magno

 

 

Earlier this year, the city council agreed to restricting new homes to single family only in Washburn except with special consideration.  Now the council will be asked to approve limits on turning those single family homes into rentals and putting limits on the numbers of unrelated persons who can live in the homes.

Group Asking Again for Turtle Crossings

Written by
It's mid-May in La Crosse.  Which can mean any number of seasonal things but certainly the passage of turtles to the Mississippi river to lay eggs.  Also some very anxious folks along East Avenue, worried about turtles turning into speed bumps.   Groups of people at assisted living centers along East Avenue are, once again, petitioning the city to put up special crossing signs along the street to help prevent the certain turtle thumping that occurs every spring with the breeding sojourn of the hard-shelled lizards to river's edge.  Last year, the city said no to the signs.  So far this year, the same result; the board of works this week has turned down the request for the turtle crossing signs.

Kleefisch: You Can't Recall Me Twice

Written by

Just three more weeks of recall season in Wisconsin, and one candidate will be happy to see it end.

 

Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch will be happy especially if she prevails in the June 5th recall. Kleefisch tells WIZM's La Crosse Talk that if she and Governor Walker keep their jobs in the recall election, they'll be immune to further recall attempts for the next two-and-a-half years.  Kleefisch believes it's 'frustrating' for voters to be asked to take part in as many recall elections and special races as Wisconsin has seen in the last two years.
