District Sees More Say Goodbye

Written by

Last year, the La Crosse School District saw 83 employees either retire or resign. So far this year...that number is at 63....with 32 added to that list Monday night. With impending budget cuts and possible layoffs coming, we asked District Human Resources Director, Steve Salerno, if these positions will be filled.

Salerno says he just came back from a recruitment fair in Madison and the line of applicants at their table was longer then any other school there. How many total positions that will be filled.....unknown at this time.

Mitchell Will Face Kleefisch

Written by

(AP) Madison firefighter Mahlon Mitchell has defeated two opponents to win the Democratic primary for Wisconsin lieutenant governor. With the win Tuesday, the leader of the statewide firefighters' union will now challenge Republican incumbent Rebecca Kleefisch next month. According to unofficial results, Mitchell defeated Milwaukee private detective Ira Robins and fake Democrat Isaac Weix. Kleefisch didn't have a primary opponent. The lieutenant governor's job carries no official duties. However, the lieutenant governor would take over if the governor dies, leaves office early or is incapacitated. Kleefisch and Republican Gov. Scott Walker are facing recall elections sparked by Walker's law that eliminated collective-bargaining rights for most public employees. The general election will be June 5.

Let The Recalls Begin!

Written by

(AP) One man who has cast his ballot for Scott Walker says the Wisconsin governor was ``duly elected.'' Seventy-seven year-old part-time plumbing and heating contractor Carl Schramm of Whitefish Bay says the recall election is ``stupid'' and ``costs a lot of money.''  But 41-year-old marketing consultant Amy Westrup of Whitefish Bay calls the chance to overturn the 2010 election result ``the ultimate mulligan.'' She voted for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, one of four Democrats vying for the chance to unseat Walker in the general election on June 5. The others are Kathleen Falk, Secretary of State Doug La Follette and state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout. Gladys Huber is a Republican running as a Democrat. Walker faces token opposition in the GOP primary from Arthur Kohl-Riggs, a Walker opponent running as a Republican. Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and three Republican state senators also face recall elections. There is an election in a fourth Senate district where the Republican incumbent resigned.
