Boland Gets Endorsement from 3rd District GOP

Written by

There might be two guys running for the Republican nomination for the third district Wisconsin congressional seat.  But the party only wants one of them.  The third district republican caucus has picked former Fort McCoy commander Ray Boland as the guy they want to represent them in the November election against Ron Kind.  Boland officially announced his campaign for congress months ago.   Late last month, fellow retired army veteran Edward Martin from Chippewa Falls announced he, too, would run for congress as a Republican.

They were ready to get rid of it last year...

Members of the La Crosse Parking Utility Board voted last summer to stop an experiment of sending out alerts to move cars in the winter only on nights when there was new snow to plow.  The city council was persuaded to give the project one more chance.  However, most of the time, the alerts were ignored...partly because of the lack of snow this winter. Once again, the parking board is calling for the 'test area' to be abolished. That means the entire city would be subject to normal alternate side parking rules five months of the year.

New State Report On Teachers Is Out

Written by

(AP) The state Department of Public Instruction is reporting that the number of teachers and other staff working in Wisconsin schools dropped 2.3 percent this school year. The data released today comes in the middle of an ongoing political fight with Gov. Scott Walker over the impact of cuts he made to public school funding last year and changes to collective bargaining rights that he says helped districts make up for the losses in aid. State Superintendent Tony Evers says in a statement there must be a bipartisan investment in public education because losses in school staff erode the public education system. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie says that districts could have cut positions and saved money.

Electric Cut Off Time

Written by

(AP) We Energies says it has started disconnecting Wisconsin and Michigan residential customers who are behind on their energy bills. A state-imposed moratorium on disconnecting customers ended Monday. Commercial and industrial customers are exempt from the Nov. 1 to April 15th moratorium and can be disconnected for nonpayment anytime throughout the year. The Milwaukee utility company is urging customers to keep their accounts current by making payment arrangements if they're behind. We Energies says it can offer payment plans, including a minimum payment option.

Where Does The Money Go

Written by

(AP) The state of Wisconsin is warning people that not all money raised by professional law enforcement and firefighting associations goes to local agencies. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection advises people to make sure they know where their donation is going before agreeing to give the money. Agency official Sandy Chalmers says the money raised by the campaigns is legitimate, but it can be confusing to people who think they are helping out their local departments. The Consumer Protection Bureau says if anyone has questions about where their money is going, they should simply ask. Solicitors are required by law to give out that information. The bureau says to be suspicious of any caller unable or unwilling to disclose that basic information.
