A well-known La Crosse priest planned a lecture for tonight about electing a pope...halfway expecting that cardinals would not be finished with the election yet.

But you can still hear Monsignor Bernard McGarty tonight, and find out how he thinks the election of Pope Francis compares to others during the history of the Catholic Church. McGarty was surprised at how quickly cardinals reached a decision last week...two days, instead of the five days he expected.  And McGarty guesses that many cardinals who are now too old to vote on a pope may have talked a bit about the cardinal from Argentina before the conclave began. McGarty's talk starts at 7 o'clock tonight at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center.

Many communities with a large amount of boat traffic charge fees for letting boaters use public landings...

Now, the town of Campbell is starting to sell its own permits for four specific landings...Nelson Park, Fisherman's Road, and two on the spillway. Town administrator Chad Hawkins says the landing charges will be official, once signs are posted at the landing sites.  The yearly boat landing permits in Campbell are 10 dollars for a resident, 15 dollars for a non-resident, and 5 bucks for a trailer. Daily passes also will be available.

The idea of another fluoride referendum in Holmen has been put on hold...

That's because the village board is moving ahead with plans to end its two-year ban on fluoridation. By a 4-3 vote last night, the board chose to spend six thousand dollars on an engineering plan for switching to a different form of fluoride than is used in most of the United States. The same idea was rejected last week by Holmen's public works committee. Village president Nancy Proctor suggested that the village was preparing to 'throw away' 86-thousand dollars spent on the original fluoridation system that was shut down in 2011...in favor of a new system that could cost an extra 70-thousand dollars. The board would still have to approve the engineering plan.

One year after the town of Campbell purchased an old church on Lakeshore Drive, the town board still has not settled on a developer to turn the building into a library.

Board members opened bids for the project this week, but did not award the contract yet. Some or all of the four bidders could be interviewed at a special meeting next week. The lowest bid for the library construction is about 80-thousand dollars. Campbell leaders plan to move the library branch out of the town hall on French Island, in order to expand the emergency management office.

A sheriff’s deputy is home from the hospital, after a vehicle slammed into his squad car on a snowy freeway in southern Wisconsin.

Columbia County deputy Michael Schultz was helping motorists who slid off Interstate 39-90-94 and he had just returned to his squad car when it was hit by another motorist who lost control. The squad had its emergency lights on at the time.

 

Schultz was treated at a hospital and later released. The driver who struck him, 19 year old Alexis Rox of La Crosse, was not injured. The crash happened Monday night.

High Stakes Tests Frowned Upon

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Lawmakers are considering a bill that would do away with high-stakes graduation exams for high school students. Instead, students would take tests designed to gauge whether they are ready for college or the workforce. The tests wouldn't require a certain score to get a diploma and that's something some Republican lawmakers and business owners disagree with.

Republican Sen. Roger Chamberlain of Lino Lakes says many agree some reform is needed, but getting rid of benchmarks is baffling.

Democratic Sen. Kevin Dahle of Northfield says a group of educators voted in November to drop the graduation tests and he'll resist efforts to a certain score a prerequisite to a diploma. Under the bill, students would start taking college readiness exams in eighth grade.
