Exit 3 Plans Appear Stuck in Plan Stage

Written by

It seemed like almost every comment from the public in La Crosse about moving an interstate exit was a bad comment.  Enough to push exit 3 alternative plans right to the brink of the trash can.  A city council committee has recommended against approving funding for a study that would have to come before exit 3 construction plans could be put into place.  City council president Audrey Kader says she can understand why so many have been opposed to the plans

 

 

Rerouting highways 35 and 53 under the plan would displace dozens of homes and businesses.

Twenty-eight years ago Friday, a woman's mutilated body was dumped along a highway in Vernon County...

Since then, nobody has been arrested for the woman's murder...mainly because police still can't figure out who the victim was. On this anniversary, state and local law enforcers are highlighting the Jane Doe case again. Vernon County Sheriff John Spears hopes to get information about the woman out to as many people as possible, through the news media and the internet, because it could, in his words, 'make a light go off.'

 

None of the potential clues to Jane Doe's identity has ever panned out. Her hands had been cut off, and even numbers printed inside the woman's dentures did not lead to an I-D.

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.
