La Crosse Voting No To Administrator

Written by

By a 3-to-2 margin, voters in La Crosse are rejecting the idea of a city administrator.

With seven thousand votes counted, more than four thousand people had voted 'no' on the binding referendum.  Opponents of the plan have argued that hiring an administrator would increase the size of city government and take away powers from the mayor.

La Crosse Pimp To Prison

Written by

A La Crosse pimp who ran a prostitution ring out of his North Side apartment will spend the next four years in prison. La Crosse County Circuit Judge Scott Horne sentenced 50 year old Steven Cathey this afternoon. Cathey stated in court that he did not try to prostitute anybody.

Prosecutors contend Cathey ran the ring out of an apartment on Rose Street from his October 2010, prison release until February 1st of last year. One woman said Cathey arranged her meetings with men, and another said Cathey kept the money from her eight customers and paid her with crack cocaine.

Cathey denied being involved in prostitution but was heard on phone calls from jail telling a woman to get rid of all the names and numbers. Cathey, back in October, entered an Alford plea where he admits no wrongdoing but concedes a jury likely would convict him to one count of pandering/pimping days before his trial. He later tried to withdraw his plea.

Voting Today in Wisconsin

Written by

As voters go to the polls today, plenty of names on ballot no longer belong to candidates who are still in a race.  Wisconsin presidential primary voting today along with spring balloting of county board supervisors and school district candidates.

 

 

Voters will see six republican presidential candidates on the ballot when they go to the polls today.  But Michelle Bachman and Jon Huntsman have ended their candidacies.  Something similar in the La Crosse school district race.   Four names on the ballot for three seats, but Dan Moen has apparently suspended his campaign.  Statewide voter turnout expected to be 35 percent today.  A city administrator referendum could boost turnout in La Crosse, while an Onalaska mayor's race could increase turnout there.

Wolf Hunt Coming to Wisconsin

Written by

It's not going to open season on wolves in Wisconsin.  But a wolf hunt is coming.  Governor Walker this week signed a law that allows it.  The point is not to take a bunch of wolves through a hunt, says Bob Welch, who represents groups who support a wolf hunt, but to discourage some not-so-friendly wolf behavior around humans

 

 

A recent federal de-listing of the gray wolf across the upper midwest has states moving to manage wolf populations through hunts and other methods.

Sign Committee Looking for More Time

Written by

It won't be long before the city of La Crosse has new rules governing billboards in place.  But not soon enough to avoid running past the expiration of a 12 month moratorium on electronic signs within the city.  City councilman Bob Seaquist wants the moratorium extended so his billboard committee can complete work on new rules for the signs.  Not a long extension, he says

 

 

The city put a sign moratorium in place last summer after backlash from a big electronic billboard that went up right at the entrance to La Crosse on town of Medary land.
