XCEL Turning To More Wind

Written by

(AP) Xcel Energy plans to capitalize on what could be a buyer's market for wind energy this year. The Minneapolis-based utility has told regulators in Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas that it will look for up to 200 megawatts of wind power by April 1. The federal tax credit for wind production has been extended to next January.

Xcel regional vice president Laura McCarten says the utility could buy a wind farm outright or just purchase power from it. But McCarten says the utility is under no obligation to buy any wind power if it doesn't find the right deal. Xcel has no need for additional wind power until 2017 at the earliest.

Xcel needs to generate 30 percent of its electricity from renewable resources by 2020.

WISTAX Concerns About State Jobs

Written by

(AP) A new report blames Wisconsin's aging population and lack of business start-ups for job growth that has lagged behind other states since the mid-1990s. The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance report shows Wisconsin consistently beat national job growth rates in the late 1980s and early 1990s. But since 1996, the state has outperformed the nation in creating jobs just 27 percent of the time.

Between 2002 and 2011, Wisconsin's growth in workers between 18 and 64 trailed 33 other states. The report says the state's aging population and lack of business start-ups are leaving Wisconsin without enough working-age adults and enough new companies to sustain growth seen in other states.

The alliance found the rate of business start-ups averaged about 2 percent in 2011, ranking Wisconsin 49th among states.

Where Are The Rabid Bats

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin health officials are warning about the threat of being exposed to rabies from bats. The state Department of Health Services warns that a rabid bat was diagnosed last week in the northwestern part of the state.

State veterinarian Jim Kazmierczak says it's uncommon to find a rabid bat this early in the year, but some have been found in January in the past. Most bats become inactive in winter, but some find shelter indoors and may come into contact with people or pets. Rabies can be transmitted if there is physical contact with a bat, such as getting a nick from a bat's tooth or claw.

Twenty-nine rabid bats were detected last year in Wisconsin.

UWL Parking Ramp About 4 Months From Completion

Written by

The current parking crunch at U-W-La Crosse may only last another four months or so.

June is the target date for finishing a 500-space parking ramp now being built across the street from Oak Grove Cemetery, at 16th and La Crosse Streets.  But since the construction took away some spaces temporarily, short-term parking areas had to be developed nearby.  The ramp will be ready for paying customers by fall. Part of the building will serve as headquarters for the campus police department.
