Maybe more time for a special committee coming up with new rules for electronic billboards in La Crosse.  This week, the city council begins the process of extending a moratorium on new electronic signs while a sign committee continues its work.  End result?  Good question, says sign committee member and city councilman, Jim Bloedorn

 

 

The current moratorium on electronic signs has been in place for almost a year.

Schultz Appreciates Award Despite Criticism

Written by

Most in his party didn't like the stand he took on a mining bill this year, but Richland Center republican state senator Dale Schultz has been awarded for that stand.  The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation has given Schultz and two others the group's Conservationist of the Year Award for sticking by their principles to block a mining bill in the state despite political pressure to do otherwise.

Schultz says he's honored by the award.  And the criticism from within his own party?  Part of the game of politics, he says.

Final Days Of Minnesota Legislature

Written by

(AP) The pressure is building on Minnesota legislators as they enter what could be the final week of session. Legislators so far have little to show for their work, but that could change rapidly. A new session for the Minnesota Vikings, borrowing for construction projects and tax changes are the major issues in play heading into Monday's floor sessions. The stadium bill has been the most-watched issue of the session. Gov. Mark Dayton has pushed hard for a $1 billion project on the site of the current Metrodome that would guarantee the Vikings' future in Minnesota for the next 30 years. The proposal has limped through several committees bu hasn't had floor votes yet.

Iowa Super's Job On The Line

Written by

AP- The Dubuque Community School Board has scheduled a special meeting on whether to consider firing Superintendent Larie Godinez. Godinez has led the district since 2009. The meeting is scheduled for Monday night. Board President Craig Beytien says the board will either accept or reject taking the next step toward terminating her contact. Beytien says the board would not make a final decision on Godinez's employment until there has been a hearing before the board or an administrative law judge. Beytien would not discuss the complaints against Godinez other than saying there are no allegations of illegality. Godinez declined to comment to The Associated Press on Monday.

Campaign Finance Reports Due

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin's recall candidates are due to turn in another round of campaign finance reports. The candidates are required to turn in reports covering their receipts and spending from Jan. 1 through April 23 to the state Government Accountability Board by midnight Monday. The reports will be the last ones before the May 8 primary. The general election is set for June 5. Democrats are trying to oust Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republicans from office as payback for Walker's contentious law stripping most public workers of nearly all their union rights.

The body of a missing Onalaska man has been found in the lake where he was last seen just before Easter.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says a boater found the body of Todd Gordon on Sunday morning, not far from where he was believed to have fallen into the water.

Deputies say Gordon went missing April 6 when he was trying out his new boat on Red Cedar Lake, northeast of Rice Lake. His boat was found on shore with nobody in it.

Fitzgerald says the boater who discovered Gordon was a private citizen who was helping the sheriff's department with the search.

Twenty years ago, Russ Feingold emerged as a surprise winner in the race for U-S Senate in Wisconsin, defeating better-known opponents who attacked each other and ignored him.

Doug La Follette is hoping for that same kind of underdog luck in his campaign for governor this year.

 

Democrat La Follette thinks he has a good chance to beat Walker, if some Republicans and independents vote for him. The secretary of state spent some time in downtown La Crosse this morning, meeting voters on the street and at the public library.

Kind Watching Posyal Reform Bill

Written by

The U.S. Senate this week approved a bill that calls for refunding the multi billion overpayment to the United States Postal workers pension fund, closing post offices nationwide, and cutting delivery to 5 days a week within 2 years. Those that voted for it say it's not a bail out. We talked with U.S. Representative Ron Kind of La Crosse about his feelings on the bill.

In the portion of the amendment that addresses processing centers like the one set for closure in La Crosse, the bill requires the postal service to maintain overnight service for items mailed to another address in the same service area. The House has yet to take up the measure and it may be two weeks before they do.
