Protest Candidate On WIZM Today

Written by

The goal for Arthur Kohl-Riggs: Alter the course of politics in Wisconsin. The 23 year-old former UW La Crosse student will appear on the recall election primary ballot next week as a Republican candidate for governor. Meaning, if he gets enough votes, governor Walker doesn't make it through to the general election. Kohl-Riggs has been making campaign appearances, raising money, and touting himself as better republican than governor Walker, in the tradition of Wisconsin's Fightin' Bob La Follette. Kohl-Riggs will talk about his campaign after 4 today on WIZM's La Crosse talk PM with Mitch Reynolds.

La Crosse's Catholic community marks a major anniversary.

A year-long celebration of the La Crosse parish's 150th birthday begins this Sunday, with a mass led by Bishop William Callahan. The bishop says the observance also will celebrate the many ethnic groups that settled in La Crosse during its early days.  It's also the 50th anniversary of the current St. Joseph the Workman Cathedral on Main Street, dedicated in May of 1962.

Despite tremendous increases in preventable diseases like whooping cough and measles in Wisconsin, you won't find Traci Lien advocating for mandatory vaccines.  The La Crosse county public health nurse, however, will strongly recommend vaccinationations.  And she tries to educate about risks associated with the diseases

 

 

There is no mandate for vaccinations in the US.  However, all fifty states require vaccinations in order to attend public school with certain exemptions available for personal, religious or medical reasons..  Lien says the increasing numbers of those opting to not get vaccinations in part explains recent disease outbreaks.

Minnesota Lawmakers At It Again

Written by

(AP) Minnesota legislators have no floor sessions scheduled Wednesday, leaving the field clear for high-level talks between Gov. Mark Dayton and leaders on the key issues standing in the way of a session finish. The GOP-controlled House approved a tax bill Tuesday that would give property tax relief to businesses. It's one of their top priorities, but Dayton's opposed to the bill because it would tap budget reserves to pay for the relief. Meanwhile, the struggle over a Vikings stadium plan took a detour when Republican leaders came forward Tuesday with a stadium plan that would drop the roof and fund it with general-fund dollars instead of expanded gambling. Dayton, the Vikings and other supporters of the main bill say it's a non-starter.

Chemical Suicide

Written by

(AP) Authorities in eastern Minnesota say first responders are dealing with a new and dangerous phenomenon chemical suicide. Washington County Sheriff's Cmdr. Brian Mueller says his department dealt with its first case over the weekend. A person had committed suicide by mixing household chemicals in a bucket, creating a deadly gas. The body of a man from Prescott, Wis., was found in a car in Point Douglas Park. Mueller says when first responders arrived they detected a faint smell of chemicals and called St. Paul hazardous materials squad. He says more training is needed for first responders because they ``may not know what they're walking into when they open the car door.'' Mueller says the haz-mat squad has dealt with similar incidents in the Twin Cities metro area.

No Bat Disease Found

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin wildlife officials say another survey has turned up no sign of a deadly bat disease. White-nose syndrome causes bats to wake up during hibernation and quickly deplete their energy stores. Federal wildlife officials estimated in January the disease has killed as many as 6.7 million bats in the eastern United States and Canada.

 

The state Department of Natural Resources conducted a survey of more than 100 potential hibernacula in the winter of 2010-11 and found to traces of the disease. DNR officials say a survey of 114 sites this past winter found no sign of the disease, either. But they remained convinced the disease is bound to appear sometime.
