Twenty years ago, Russ Feingold emerged as a surprise winner in the race for U-S Senate in Wisconsin, defeating better-known opponents who attacked each other and ignored him.

Doug La Follette is hoping for that same kind of underdog luck in his campaign for governor this year.

 

Democrat La Follette thinks he has a good chance to beat Walker, if some Republicans and independents vote for him. The secretary of state spent some time in downtown La Crosse this morning, meeting voters on the street and at the public library.

Kind Watching Posyal Reform Bill

Written by

The U.S. Senate this week approved a bill that calls for refunding the multi billion overpayment to the United States Postal workers pension fund, closing post offices nationwide, and cutting delivery to 5 days a week within 2 years. Those that voted for it say it's not a bail out. We talked with U.S. Representative Ron Kind of La Crosse about his feelings on the bill.

In the portion of the amendment that addresses processing centers like the one set for closure in La Crosse, the bill requires the postal service to maintain overnight service for items mailed to another address in the same service area. The House has yet to take up the measure and it may be two weeks before they do.

Some ATC Routes Set

Written by

The American Transmission Company wrapped up their latest round of public meetings last night and spokeswoman Sara Justice says they are still hearing from both sides of the high voltage power line project.

Justice says now the new comments will be taken back to the drawing board as the slim down of projected routes will continue until 2013. Then they will go to the Public Service Commission with their final plans for constructing the lines from north of La Crosse to Madison.

Think you're paying alot in water and sewer charges now?   Just wait until La Crosse has to upgrade the sewage treatment plant to deal with increased restrictions on phosphorous releases.  It's plenty of equipment and facility upgrades.  Very costly, according to the most recent estimates city water utility manager Mark Johnson has received

 

 

Sewage treatment plant improvements could be required to deal with the phosphorous mandates in just a few years.

2 Killed In Crash Were 2009 Holmen High School Grads

Written by

The two men who died in a Holmen accident this morning were Holmen High School graduates. Killed in the crash were 21 year old Samuel Haug and 21 year Ethan Anderson. The crash was reported to police around 6 this morning and happened at County Road XX just south of Briggs Road. The crash was called in around 6 but it may have happened hours earlier. It's not clear who was driving, but the passenger, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle. The driver, who was wearing a seatbelt, was found inside the vehicle. The men were driving north on County Road XX when their vehicle crossed the center line and rolled multiple times. Speed seems to be a factor in the crash. Police are still investigating.

Lunch Menus Looked At In Minnesota

Written by

(AP) Local school districts are revising their school lunch menus to comply with a new federal law that takes effect in July. Willmar district administrators don't expect changes in their school lunch program will result in a price increase. But, some school board members are concerned it could lead to more wasted food. The new law requires schools to serve more fruits and vegetables and place stricter limits on breads, grains, meats and cheeses. Schools will be required to serve .75 to 1 cup of vegetables and .5 to 1 cup fruit each day. Nutrition director Annette Derouin says she plans to offer a combination of fresh and canned produce. Meat and meat alternatives will be limited to 10 ounces to 12 ounces a week.

Four Of The State Supreme Court Justices Boycott

Written by

(AP) Four of the state Supreme Court's seven justices engaged in a limited boycott this week to protest the way Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson wanted to take up a specific issue. The issue involved the court's decision in January to discuss much of its work behind closed doors. The decision reversed a policy favoring transparency. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report (http://bit.ly/Jst6hb ) says Abrahamson wanted to write a dissent, and she believed the court needed to vote publicly on it Wednesday. The four conservative-leaning justices failed to appear for that discussion, with one alluding to an ``improper item'' on the agenda. The development was the latest sign of how fractured the court has become. Justice David Prosser is accused of putting his hands on another justice's neck during an altercation last summer.

Representatives from the statewide teachers union, the American Federations of State, County and Municipal Employees, the Sierra Club, Emily's List, the American Federation of Teachers, and others spoke in support of Falk.
