More Native Americans In The UW System

Written by

(AP) Enrollment figures from the University of Wisconsin System show many more Native Americans are going to college. But their retention and graduation rates lag behind the overall student population. The latest figures from the UW System show more than 1,800 Native American students were enrolled in 2009. That's 550 more than the fall of 2005. But the six-year graduation rate is 65 percent for all students and 40 percent for American Indians. Ed Manydeeds of Eau Claire is the first Native American member of the UW Board of Regents. Cultural differences can contribute to the retention problem. He says UW campuses need a center dedicated to American Indian students. Northland College in Ashland, for example, is opening an Indigenous People's Center.

No Absentee Ballots This Week

Written by

If you expected an absentee ballott this week and never got it.....don't worry...it's not lost in the mail.

And now you won't get one until next week. La Crosse County Clerk, Ginny Denkmeyer, says normally, there’s a month and a half between the primaries and a general election. But for recall elections, the state Constitution calls for a gap of four weeks. And Government Accountability Board Director, Kevin Kennedy, says local clerks must do some maneuvering with the shorter time frame.

Walker Signs Trashed.....Blamed On Senior Prank

Written by

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.

Packer Bus Tour Stop A Success

Written by

The Oktoberfest Southside Festgrounds were full of cheeseheads last night as the Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour made only their second ever stop here. The annual whirlwind tour of Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy and receiver Jordy Nelson, kicker Mason Crosby, and safety Charlie Peprah were joined by former players including Packers Hall of Famers fullback William Henderson, guard Marco Rivera, and center Larry McCarren.

Each Tailgate Tour party benefits the hosting non-profit organization. Children of the Heart was the local cause in La Crosse and secretary, Rachel Pearce, talked about the showing of hundreds of people.



The Packers wrapped up their three-day rookie orientation camp Sunday and on Monday, host a mini-camp for veterans and rookies. Green Bay signed all eight draft choices to contracts last week.
