Mitchell Will Face Kleefisch

Written by

(AP) Madison firefighter Mahlon Mitchell has defeated two opponents to win the Democratic primary for Wisconsin lieutenant governor. With the win Tuesday, the leader of the statewide firefighters' union will now challenge Republican incumbent Rebecca Kleefisch next month. According to unofficial results, Mitchell defeated Milwaukee private detective Ira Robins and fake Democrat Isaac Weix. Kleefisch didn't have a primary opponent. The lieutenant governor's job carries no official duties. However, the lieutenant governor would take over if the governor dies, leaves office early or is incapacitated. Kleefisch and Republican Gov. Scott Walker are facing recall elections sparked by Walker's law that eliminated collective-bargaining rights for most public employees. The general election will be June 5.

Let The Recalls Begin!

Written by

(AP) One man who has cast his ballot for Scott Walker says the Wisconsin governor was ``duly elected.'' Seventy-seven year-old part-time plumbing and heating contractor Carl Schramm of Whitefish Bay says the recall election is ``stupid'' and ``costs a lot of money.''  But 41-year-old marketing consultant Amy Westrup of Whitefish Bay calls the chance to overturn the 2010 election result ``the ultimate mulligan.'' She voted for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, one of four Democrats vying for the chance to unseat Walker in the general election on June 5. The others are Kathleen Falk, Secretary of State Doug La Follette and state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout. Gladys Huber is a Republican running as a Democrat. Walker faces token opposition in the GOP primary from Arthur Kohl-Riggs, a Walker opponent running as a Republican. Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and three Republican state senators also face recall elections. There is an election in a fourth Senate district where the Republican incumbent resigned.

Vikes Deal In The Works

Written by

(AP) A Minnesota Vikings executive says state lawmakers could sink a stadium deal by making it too hard on the club. Team vice president Lester Bagley made the comments Tuesday as the Senate prepared to vote on a stadium financing proposal. A day earlier, House members approved a stadium deal but added $105 million to the team's share. Bagley says stadium opponents will do all they can to derail the deal. He points to a Twins ballpark bill that cleared the Legislature in 2002, only to fall apart. It took the team another four years to win legislative support for a workable bill.

Dogs Used To Find Bugs

Written by

(AP) Minnesota is enlisting dogs in the battle to prevent the spread of the emerald ash borer. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture hopes trained sniffer dogs can become a new line of defense against the invasive pests, which threaten ash trees across the state and across the country. The department is partnering with Working Dogs for Conservation, which has experience in detecting invasive species and has found encouraging results in training dogs to find ash wood material and emerald ash borers. Officials demonstrated the dogs' capabilities at the Ramsey County compost site in Arden Hills on Tuesday, and said the dogs may be ready to start sniffing mulch piles, yard waste sites, and commercial vehicles as early as July. The beetles were first detected in Minnesota in St. Paul in 2009.

Gas To Energy Underway In Onalaska

Written by

A gas to energy project with Gundersen Lutheran and La Crosse County allows gas from the landfill to be put to good use. Methane gas that was being burned off at the county landfill is captured and used, through a system of pipes, to heat the Gundersen Lutheran Onalaska Clinic and Support Services Building. And it is bringing big money to the area.

Corey Zirecki is Director of Envisions at Gunderson Lutheran. He says in the first two years of their Envision program, Gundersen was able to improve energy efficiency by 25 percent for a savings of $1.25 million annually.
