Tomah's crack down on drug's made it's mark again Saturday night with the arrest of two Tomah men caught with almost 4 pounds of pot.
Police watched as 40 year old John Krosinksi left another man's home with almost 5 ounces of pot....which led police to serve a search warrant on the home. The find.......3½ pounds of marijuana, over $3400 in cash and various items used to grow and harvest marijuana.
Both Krosinski and 30 year old Scott Streeter were booked at the Monroe County Jail on various drug charges.
The state Department of Natural Resources will be conducting prescribed burns this spring on various State Natural Areas and some private lands in Crawford, Jackson, La Crosse, Pepin, and Trempealeau counties. Parcels are typically burned on a two to five year rotation and vary in size from 90 to 340 acres. Fires are used in grassland management to improve wildlife habitat, control invasive plant species and reduce wildfire potential.
Prescribed burns also:
Stimulate prairie grass growth and improve habitat for upland game and waterfowl.
Create pockets of open water for waterfowl amidst cattails proliferating in low areas.
Improve cover type for upland nesting birds, such as pheasants, and spur native vegetative growth for songbirds.
Help preserve grasslands and native flora, plant species sustained by natural fires prior to intensive European settlement.
Canvassing work on this week's elections continues in Wisconsin. La Crosse county clerk Ginny Dankmeyer says her vote totals became official yesterday. Both supreme court justices gained ten votes after re-evaluating write-ins. She says some voters wrote in the names of the candidates instead of just marking their ballots correctly.
Ginny says most vote shifts during canvassing are typically very small. Not hundreds and certainly not, she says, thousands of votes added to tallies two days after the election.
If the campaign donation pattern persists for the 94th assembly special election, there's going to be thousands of dollars from outside the district flowing in. Campaign finance reports filed right before Tuesday's primary for the 94th have republican John Lautz and democrat Steve Doyle raising over 22 thousand dollars each before the election. For Lautz, about forty percent--just over nine thousand dollars--of that came from outside the district. Less than ten percent of the money Steve Doyle raised came from outside the 94th.

A supreme court recount battle is looming. There's a special election in the 94th assembly district coming up next month. A recall election is somewhere on the horizon. Perfect timing for some activist training. Which is coming to the La Crosse RAdisson tomorrow, courtesy of the group, American Majority
Matt Batzel is state director for the group. He says the training is for people to be more effective in their activism. American Majority's a conservative group, but Batzel insists he welcomes all-comers to the training. Registration begins Saturday at 2:30.
