It's being called a big victory for Scott Walker, as he starts his official campaign for president.  The Wisconsin Supreme Court has halted a John Doe probe into Governor Walker's campaign activities during the 2012 recall election.  Rick Essenberg from the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty calls the decision a victory for everyone, because it should discourage prosecutors from starting investigations for partisan reasons.

The conservative majority of the Supreme Court voted to stop the probe into whether Walker's campaign was illegally involved with groups that supported him.

MN lawmaker: No MNSure bills yet this year

Written by

180 thousand Minnesotans are wondering what is going on with MnSure, the state health insurance exchange. Medicaid and MinnesotaCare insurance renewals have been held up by technical problems. State Representative Matt Dean says that has caused some major issues.

Dean says all of those people have yet to get a bill from MNSure for this year, leading to frantic calls to state offices which come with assurances but ongoing confusion.

 

Dean says although nobody has lost coverage as a result of the delay, MinnesotaCare patients are now concerned they will be hit with a bill for their premiums and any medical care they have had in recent months all at once.

Written by
Relief from a La Crosse-based organization that uses state money to preserve bluffland.  Head of the Mississippi Valley Conservancy, Carol Abrahamzon is happy that the the final state budget includes continued funding for a key stewardship fund.  Even if the funding level is half of what it was during the last two-year state spending plan.  Abrahamzon says her group always has a strong application for funding from the state and she's confident that history of success will continue. 

 

The Knowles-Nelson Stewardship fund is budgeted for about $33 million per year for the next two years to buy up land statewide to be put into a conservancy.

Some politicians win elections, but they don't fight.  Others fight, but they don't win.  Scott Walker says he does both, which is a major reason why he's running for president.  Wisconsin's governor launched his White House run in Waukesha yesterday, saying Washington needs new ideas, and the government should leave people alone.

Republican Walker had harsh words about President Obama, saying he's weak on foreign policy, and accusing him of passing too many 'bad' regulations, including Obamacare.  Walker vowed to work on repealing Obamacare on the very first day he takes office as president.

Forest Hills going to 9 holes

Written by

As it turns out, redesign and construction of a hundred year-old golf course doesn't come without complications. Manager of La Crosse's Forest Hills course, Keith Stoll can tell you that.  Even the tunnel that goes under Burlington Northern's railroad tracks has had some unexpected setbacks. He says, after a heavy rain. water that was supposed to flow easily out of the tunnel inexplicably fills it up.  Stoll says Burlington Northern is figuring out how to fix that problem.  Meanwhile, he expects the rest of the revamped course to be completely ready for play by next summer.  On Monday, Stoll informed the city's public works board that Forest Hills would go from 18 holes to 9 on August 10th to accomodate the construction.
