Court Upholds Walker Law

Written by

(AP) A federal appeals court has upheld Gov. Scott Walker's contentious law stripping most public workers of nearly all of their collective bargaining rights.

Seven public unions, including the teachers' union and the largest statewide public sector union, challenged the law's constitutionality in 2011. U.S. District Judge William Conley in March overturned part of the law requiring unions hold elections each year for members to retain their official status. The judge also said the law illegally halted the automatic withdrawal of union dues.

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals released a decision on Friday that upheld the law in its entirety. The court said the law is constitutional.

No new referendum on fluoride in Holmen this April...

Village leaders have sent the idea of a referendum to committee, which means there's little chance it would get on the spring ballot. Retiring Holmen trustee Tony Horvath proposed a new referendum, claiming that the village did not follow legal procedure in going ahead with fluoridation after voters said 'yes' in 2008.

 

Another proposal from Horvath was approved by the Holmen board...to switch to a different form of fluoride which he believes may be less harmful.

A beauty pageant winner recently got plenty of public attention just by sitting in the stands at a football game.

The reigning Miss Alabama from the Miss USA Pageant was singled out for compliments by sportscaster Brent Musberger while watching her boyfriend play in the N-C-A-A championship game. Are pageant contestants annoyed by that kind of behavior? Recent Miss America contestant Kate Gorman says, it comes with the territory.  Gorman, from Onalaska, represented Wisconsin at the Miss America finals in Las Vegas last week. She jokes that she hasn't been asked out for dates with college quarterbacks.

Minnesota Gun Legislation

Written by

(AP) The first firearms bill introduced in the Minnesota Legislature this session would make it harder for convicted felons who've served their time to regain the right to own a gun. The bill by Sen. Barb Goodwin, DFL-Columbia Heights, would eliminate the right of violent felons to petition courts for restoration of their gun ownership rights. Goodwin wants to transfer responsibility for those decisions to the Board of Pardons. The bill is just one of what could be several proposals to change Minnesota's liberal gun laws.

Rep. Michael Paymar, DFL-St. Paul, wants to require background checks for all Minnesota gun sales, including those at gun shows or between private parties, similar to a proposal from President Barack Obama.

Some gun rights supporters say no new restrictions will pass without a fight.

Bridge Finally Going Up

Written by

(AP) After more than 10 years of planning, construction of the new Interstate 90 bridge that crosses the Mississippi River at Dresbach, Minn., is expected to begin Monday.

Transportation officials say the first year of the project won't cause many traffic delays. Interstate 90 will remain open during the four-year project, but various ramps will be closed for months at a time. Project manager Terry Ward says traffic from La Crosse to La Crescent, Minn., on westbound I-90 to southbound Highway 61 will be closed for an extended period of time.

Ward says it's a unique project because of the state line in the middle. The Minnesota and Wisconsin Departments of Transportation coordinated on the $187 million bridge and interchange project.
