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.

A news 2010-11 report from UW-L's career fields department showed that about 88 percent found work within their major. The average salary of a UW-L graduate was about $41,300. Tim Tritch, associate director of Career Service, says that the numbers are slightly higher then reported two years ago.
Also, 98 percent of UW-La Crosse undergraduates seeking employment found work within six months of graduation. The results, based on around 900 surveys, do not include students who continued their education or those who were not seeking employment.
A new online application for prospective students to UW-L has been a huge success this year. Al Trapp, President of the UW-L Foundation, says they saw an increase in applications because of the new online system and it helps not only the student, but university staff as well.
The foundation just handed out over $400 thousand in scholarships a few weeks ago.

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.
