New State Report On Teachers Is Out

Written by

(AP) The state Department of Public Instruction is reporting that the number of teachers and other staff working in Wisconsin schools dropped 2.3 percent this school year. The data released today comes in the middle of an ongoing political fight with Gov. Scott Walker over the impact of cuts he made to public school funding last year and changes to collective bargaining rights that he says helped districts make up for the losses in aid. State Superintendent Tony Evers says in a statement there must be a bipartisan investment in public education because losses in school staff erode the public education system. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says that districts could have cut positions and saved money.

The Milwaukee utility company is urging customers to keep their accounts current by making payment arrangements if they're behind. We Energies says it can offer payment plans, including a minimum payment option.

Where Does The Money Go

Written by

(AP) The state of Wisconsin is warning people that not all money raised by professional law enforcement and firefighting associations goes to local agencies. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection advises people to make sure they know where their donation is going before agreeing to give the money. Agency official Sandy Chalmers says the money raised by the campaigns is legitimate, but it can be confusing to people who think they are helping out their local departments. The Consumer Protection Bureau says if anyone has questions about where their money is going, they should simply ask. Solicitors are required by law to give out that information. The bureau says to be suspicious of any caller unable or unwilling to disclose that basic information.

Equal Pay Day

Written by

The 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act was meant to deter employers from discriminating against certain groups by giving workers more avenues via which to press charges. Among other provisions, it allows individuals to plead their cases in the less costly, more accessible state circuit court system, rather than just in federal court. In November, the state Senate approved SB 202, which rolled back this provision. In February, the Assembly did the same. Earlier this month, Governor Scott Walker signed the bill and it is now called Act 219. Some have said it is a war on women....but one local lawmaker says no so fast.

Representative Steve Doyle, In La Crosse Tuesday, explained why men are effected by the act.

Doyle was joined by representative Jill Billings and State Seantor Jennifer Shilling on what's known across the country as Equal Pay Day. The day saw people holding rallies, wearing red to symbolize how women's wages are in the red, handing out Pay Day candy bars, and hosting bake sales with discounts for women.

A New Northside School Building!

Written by

Should the La Crosse School District build a new Northside school and if so...what should they do with Roosevelt Elementary. Those questions will be coming to community residents soon in the form of a survey.....the first sent by the district since 2007. Superintendent, Randy Nelson, says you'll get some info on the survey soon.

A new school could be built on the same site at a cost of $14-16 million. This would provide capacity for all Franklin, Roosevelt and Coulee Montessori students. If Roosevelt Elementary were closed, the Board would work with the north side community to determine the best use for the building.

Shilling Launches Campaign For Full Senate Term

Written by

Last year, voters in La Crosse County elected a new state Senator and two new members of the Assembly in special races.

Now, all three of those lawmakers are up for re-election this year...and Senator Jennifer Shilling is officially launching her campaign this week. Shilling says she wants to keep serving in the Senate to help working families and improve employment. She had served in the Assembly for 10 years before unseating Dan Kapanke in a recall election last August. Just one challenger to Shilling has come forward so far...local Republican Bill Feehan.

Walker Invites Illinois Businesses To Wisconsin

Written by

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker came to Springfield, Illinois Tuesday morning, to compare himself favorably to two Illinois politicians: Pat Quinn and Abraham Lincoln.
As for inviting Illinois employers to move to the Badger State.....Walker was asked how many have moved out of Illinois so far.



Walker spoke to the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and let them know how great a shape this state is in now that he has made changes. The crowd outside his speech was far larger than the crowd inside, as thousands of union members protested the governor’s appearance in Illinois.

Drake Hall Fire To Be Featured In Documentary

Written by

The fire this winter at a U-W-La Crosse dorm is being highlighted in a documentary on fire safety that's now in production...

Members of two nationwide groups are in La Crosse today to talk with people who were connected to the Drake Hall fire in January. Ed Comeau founded 'Campus Firewatch,' and he says the local fire is a rare case where an entire residence hall has been disabled for a full semester.

 

But Comeau also points out that the Drake fire resulted in no deaths and no major injuries...showing that the university has done well in preparing students for the chance of fire.
