Get Your Ice Cold Milk Here!

Written by

People like to say 'There's no such thing as a free lunch,' but plenty of folks in La Crosse scored some free milk at lunchtime on Tuesday.

The Hunger Task Force gave away thousands of gallons of milk donated by the Golden Guernsey dairy, which went out of business this month.  While many people stayed in their cars and went through a drive-up lane, others stood outside the milk truck to pick up the freebies. Frozen brakes on the truck hauling the milk to La Crosse delayed the giveaway at Bridgeview Plaza for more than an hour.

Baby It's Cold Outside

Written by

(AP) Police officers in Milwaukee checked under freeway overpasses and other spots to find the homeless and urge them to get out of the dangerous cold and stay at a shelter. The United Way of Greater Milwaukee has donated $50,000 to help crowded homeless shelters open overflow centers.

To the north in Superior, temperatures dropped to 20 and 30 below zero Tuesday. The wind made those temperatures feel even colder.

Ashland, Bayfield, Hurley, Washburn and Superior are among school districts telling students to stay home Tuesday. Forecasters say with wind chills of minus 20 and below, exposed skin can freeze within a minute.

Supreme Court Talks

Written by

(AP) All seven members of the Wisconsin Supreme Court have met with 20 Wisconsin state lawmakers as part of the biennial tradition at the beginning of each new legislative session. Lawmakers and court members at Tuesday's meeting talked about a variety of issues related to the judiciary, including Wisconsin's unique position as the only state that allows law school graduates to practice without taking a bar exam.

Justices spoke supportively of that so-called diploma privilege, which dates back to 1870.

State Sen. Glenn Grothman asked what could be done to lower law student debt. He says the amount of debt students graduate with is scandalous. He suggested looking at alternative and less expensive ways to get licensed to practice law.

School Vouchers Get A Hard Look

Written by

(AP) Three former Republican speakers of the state Assembly are now lobbying to expand school vouchers in Wisconsin.

Jeff Fitzgerald registered on Jan. 10 to lobby for School Choice Wisconsin, just days after his term ended. Another former Republican Assembly speaker, John Gard, is also registered as a lobbyist for the group. Its president is Jim Bender, a former legislative staffer who worked for Fitzgerald. A third Republican former speaker, Scott Jensen, is a registered lobbyist for the American Federation for Children, another group that supports expanding vouchers. Republican Gov. Scott Walker supports expanding vouchers, but he hasn't said what exactly his plan will look like.

Common Cause Wisconsin on Tuesday renewed its call for a prohibition on lawmakers becoming lobbyists immediately after leaving office.

Time For Onalaska Council To Pray?

Written by

Why doesn't the city council in Onalaska start its meetings with a prayer?

One city resident asked that question of a council member recently, and the councilman tried a prayer at the monthly meeting. Now, an Onalaska council committee is going to study the idea of having a prayer every month, which is opposed by the Freedom from Religion Foundation. Onalaska mayor Joe Chilsen is hearing evenly mixed reactions from the public.  At La Crosse city council meetings, a member of the clergy is often invited to speak at the start of the evening.

No Idling In La Crosse

Written by

(AP) La Crosse residents are being reminded of a local ordinance that prevents them from walking away while they warm up their cars. The city's ordinance prevents people from leaving unattended vehicles running. It applies to vehicles on the street or in other public places, and it carries a fine of $114.

Police Lt. Patrick Hogan says the ordinance is in place to protect people from car thieves. He says when vehicles are left unlocked with the key in the ignition, someone passing by who might not have thought about stealing a car might be tempted to take advantage of an easy opportunity.

Police say the ordinance doesn't apply to cars that use an electric starter because keys aren't left in the vehicle that way.
