Republicans Talking Unity

Written by

It's over?  Rick Santorum has dropped out of the republican presidential primary race.  But there's still delegates to be had out there.  Time for the party to talk unity says La Crosse county republican party chair, Julian Bradley

 

 

Santorum's announcement that he was leaving the race comes just a week after losing in Wisconsin's primary.  He did however, carry La Crosse county quite handily.

It's certainly not the first time a downtown La Crosse business has had a window broken. But one of the first times police have rounded up a video of the perp who did it.  La Crosse police are looking for the guy that appears in a video that they've posted on the city website and on the police Facebook page. They need help identifying the guy. They say he punched out the window at Three Rivers Outdoors. Someone recorded it on their phone and handed the video over to the police.

No Means No, On City Administrator Issue

Written by

Just say the words, "city administrator" in La Crosse from now on and someone's going to have something to say about it. Like last night. Tea Party activist Greg Luce  noted that the city council was to vote on leftover business having to do with the city administrator idea. Luce says he hopes the council--especially council member and strong proponent of the administrator idea--Dick Swantz understands what 'no' means.

 

At the polls last week, La Crosse voters handily turned down the proposal to hire an administrator to run the day-to-day operations of city hall.

Voters in La Crosse demonstrated last week that they would rather have an elected mayor running the city than an appointed administrator.

Polls of other Wisconsin residents seem to show the same attitude toward how judges are hired...preferring elections to appointments. If that's how the Supreme Court and other judges are to be chosen, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson would like voters to become educated about the candidates. Abrahamson points out that judges are elected in April, when turnout is often low, only around 20 per cent.  Speaking on La Crosse Public Radio, the chief justice said she wants judges in Wisconsin to be perceived as fair and non-partisan, without a clear personal agenda.

A child abuse charge against an area basketball coach and teacher is being dismissed...

A Trempealeau County judge rules that he cannot find enough evidence to try Brady Olson on a felony charge of physically abusing children. Olson still faces a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct, for allegedly injuring girls on his middle-school basketball team by placing dry ice on their skin. The frozen chemical allegedly left burn marks on at least one student. Olson also teaches chemistry for the G-E-T school district, and argues that he was using the dry ice for a science demonstration for the girls one day last January. The D-A's office filed charges last month.

Wisconsin's Governor Running Against Illinois

Written by

During his current election campaign, the governor of Wisconsin often points to the neighboring state to our south, as an example to avoid.

Governor Scott Walker says he criticizes Illinois often, because he believes his Democratic challengers want Wisconsin to be like the other state, losing jobs and raising taxes.  Walker says the Democratic leaders of Illinois have made 'horrible decisions.' The governor appeared with his wife and sons for a rally today at the L-B White company in Onalaska.

John Bubbers is at the U-W Burn Center, following an explosion in his parked van outside a Kwik Trip on French Island. Fire investigators say fumes from a propane tank inside the van were touched off by a passenger lighting a cigarette. Bubbers had gone to the Kwik Trip to exchange the propane container. He received third-degree burns in the accident, and the passenger had lesser injuries.

Ritchie No Fan of Voter ID in Minnesota

Written by

It was a purely symbolic gesture, but governor Dayton did it anyway.  The Minnesota governor vetoed a voter ID bill yesterday.  Doesn't mean a thing because it's a constitutional amendment.  Voters get the final say on the measure.  Not the governor.   Too bad, says Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.  Because, he says, voter ID really is unneeded in the state

 

 

Ritchie says the worst part of the bill is that it does away with same day voter registration.  He says that's the part of current Minnesota law that keeps the state's voter turnout the highest in the nation.

Council to Vote on Garbage Rules

Written by

Long-awaited garbage regulation updates are scheduled for a vote tonight by the full La Crosse city council.  Landlords have complained loudly about the new regulations that, among other things, require many more rentals to have dumpsters.  But city council member Bob Seaquist, who helped develop the new rules, says the changes are needed to deal with La Crosse's garbage problem.   And not just what the city's garbage contractor has to deal with

 

 

The new rules would, among other things, mandate that all garbage get put out in a container.
