Campbell Votes To Buy Church For Library

Written by

A former Baptist church on French Island will be turned into a new library for the Town of Campbell.

Town residents voted 134 to 55 in favor of the purchase on Tuesday night, after a public hearing.  The library would be moved out of the town hall to provide more space for emergency services.  Some opponents of the plan argued that the town government doesn't need more space if the population has not grown, while others suspected that town officials had a conflict of interest in arranging for the purchase.

K9 Proves Vital For La Crosse PD

Written by

Over the last couple weeks the La Crosse Police Department’s Investigative Bureau has executed several search warrants and made multiple, high profile drug arrests. These large cases can overshadow the excellent work being done by the front line officers. The front line uniformed police officers are the “back bone” of our police department. We would like to highlight a recent night of activity from Officer LeQue and his new K-9 partner Ralph. Officer LeQue is assigned to second shift patrol and recently took over the handling of  K-9 Ralph from Officer Fitzgerald who was promoted to an Investigator.

On March 2nd the newly formed K-9/Handler relationship took a big step forward with a highly productive night. Officer LeQue deployed K9 Ralph on 4 separate traffic stops resulting in the arrest of 6 people, the recovery of over 36 grams of marijuana, and 3 drug smoking pipes.  One of these deployments led to the arrest of a suspect wanted for a heroin related charge; a drug that has repeatedly proven to be dangerous to our community. Assistant Chief Abraham stated: “Our K-9 units have proven to be a tremendous asset to the Department and the community. The message to drug dealers is clear, keep out of La Crosse” The La Crosse Police would like to thank the community for their continued support of men, women and K-9’s that work extremely hard to keep our community safe and drug free.

Written by

Some tough decisions face the La Crosse School District soon....the biggie....how to cover between a $1.3 and $2.4 million gap in the 2012-13 budget. And not only will the school board feel it...local taxpayers will as well as the amount you will pay could reach 58% this year. But it didn't used to be this way.

Business Manager, Janet Rossiter, says even though budget talks are in the early stages, she would like some decisions the school board will make done sooner....then later.

Glenn Grothman says he's trying to right a wrong.  Grothman's a republican state senator from West Bend who has introduced a bill in Madison to force the state's Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize single parenting as a risk factor for child abuse and neglect.  Statistics prove it, says Grothman, but liberals ignore it

 

 

Grothman say democrats have basically enabled child abuse by allowing for excessive welfare benefits which, in turn, leads to the breakdown of the traditional family.

La Crosse Stormwater Bills Delayed

Written by

Originally the city of La Crosse was hoping to collect with a new stormwater utility at the beginning of this year.   But a problem setting up a billing process likely will delay collection for months.   Water utility manager Mark Johnson says billing for stormwater is not as easy as billing for water and sewer because there's no meter involved

 

 

Eventually, a typical household in La Crosse will pay an extra fifty bucks a year in a stormwater charge.

Hard to cut your own pay.  So, it's a bit unlikely that the La Crosse city council will vote this week to do just that.  It's one of two proposals by council member John Satory.  Cut the pay in half.  Cut the terms in half; from four years to two.  The council, he says, would attract many more qualified candidates

 

 

Reason for the pay cut?  Satory says, it's only fair.  Since the council voted last month to cut the next mayor's pay in half if voters approve the plan for adding a city administrator in a binding referendum next month.
