The fight over lighted signs resumes for another round in Onalaska this week...

Opponents of electronic billboards called a news conference in an Onalaska neighborhood today, with staffers from the Olympus sign company standing by and watching. At one point, an Olympus employee disagreed with a citizen's claim that 'everybody' in the neighborhood is against the billboards, and began arguing with the local activist who organized the event.

 

The Onalaska Plan Commission has a public hearing tomorrow night on rules to regulate electric signs. A similar hearing last December at the Omni Center drew about 200 people.

Storm Damage Progress

Written by

(AP) Most of the storm debris and downed trees have been cleared from tornado-ravaged Thurman.  Volunteers have been working since last weekend's storm to help the town of 229 get back to normal. The tornado ripped through the town, damaging most homes but causing only a few minor injuries. Mayor Rod Umphreys Jr. says most roads were clear and most debris removed after a hundred volunteers turned out Saturday. The town has been inundated with volunteers since the storm, some coming from as far as Wisconsin and Montana.

Scott Walker in the spring recall election will be in Racine Monday evening.  Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, Secretary of State Doug La Follette, and state Sen.

Lehman is facing protest candidate Tamra Varebrook in the primary.

Pay Up Or Get Out

Written by

(AP) Minnesota's debt-plagued Republican Party has been served with an eviction notice for its party headquarters after failing to pay its rent payments since August. The party's landlord filed the notice last week in Ramsey County court and it is scheduled to be heard next Tuesday. Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Pat Shortridge told party members in a memo Thursday that officials are trying to renegotiate the lease to get one that better fits space and cost needs. The GOP has 21 months remaining on a lease with Hub Properties Trust for space a block from the state Capitol. Shortridge revealed that the rent hadn't been paid in eight months. The Minnesota GOP owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to various vendors. The eviction notice was first reported by Politics in Minnesota.

It's Not Really A Website Fail......Yet

Written by

It was supposed to help people out during storms and bad weather events. But La Crosse County Emergency Management Director, Keith Butler, says a storm and information website they created...well....it's just not working.

He says the Alert Lacrosse dot org website needs to be manned every day and right now they just don't have the resources to do that. They will, in the meantime, provide educational information and emergency related links for their web viewers.
