La Crosse County Election Results

Written by

Nearly 900 voters made their way to the polls in La Crosse County for Tuesday's primary...That was a 12 per cent turnout, for an election in which only three county board races were listed on county ballots.  The top vote-getter was former Forest Hills manager Dave Holtze, who received two-thirds of the votes in a three-way race in south La Crosse.  Incumbent Gerald Sebranek only had 13 per cent of the votes in that contest, and so he will lose his board seat.  Supervisor Bill Brockmiller was the only other candidate to get more than 100 votes on Tuesday...winning 50 per cent of the votes against two other contenders.

Wisconsin Election Maps Back In Court

Written by

(AP) Federal judges in Milwaukee are reconvening in a case over whether the state's new election maps are constitutional. The case was delayed Tuesday as lawyers prepared arguments about the degree to which one particular witness might have to testify. Jim Troupis helped produce the maps for Republican lawmakers, and has said much of his involvement is protected by attorney-client privilege. The three-judge panel is expected to make a decision Wednesday. Democrats and an immigrant-rights group want the maps thrown out and redone. However, a separate issue was raised Tuesday over whether state law even allows the issue to be revisited. Republican lawmakers say the law only allows new maps to be drawn once every 10 years, but plaintiffs' attorneys say they just have to be completed in the first legislative session, which is still ongoing.

Senate Passes Abortion Consent Bill

Written by

(AP) The Wisconsin state Senate has passed a bill placing new requirements on doctors and women before abortions can be performed. The Senate passed the bill Wednesday after Democratic opponents blocked a vote on Tuesday. It passed 17-15 on a party line vote. The bill would require doctors be present when prescribing abortion-inducing drugs. It would ban the use of web cams to do that, a practice not currently done in Wisconsin. The measure would also require doctors inform a woman on her right to refuse or consent to an abortion. The doctor would be required to speak to the woman away from any partner or family member. Republican supporters say the bill will protect girls and women from harm. It now heads to the Assembly.

Packer Backs Concussion Bill

Written by

(AP) Longtime Green Bay Packer offensive lineman Mark Tauscher is throwing his support behind a bill in the Wisconsin Legislature designed to reduce youth concussions. Tauscher on Wednesday joined doctors, a lobbyist for the National Football League and others in support of the bill. The measure has passed the Assembly but stalled in the Senate.

 

 

Bill sponsor Sen. Alberta Darling called on the public to contact their senator to urge passage. She says some Republicans are opposed to placing mandates on schools and want to make compliance voluntary. The proposal would require that young athletes who suffer what appears to be a concussion would have to be immediately removed from the activity and not be allowed to return until examined by a health care provider and given written clearance.

Eagle Cam Hits 217 Million Viewers

Written by

Another egg's in the nest of a famous northeast Iowa eagle family. The egg was laid Monday night while the first egg was seen Friday night. The nest sits in a tree at the Decorah Fish Hatchery. The eagles have gained international attention because of an Internet cam set up by the Raptor Resource Project. The website that allows people to watch, U Stream Dot TV, has been viewed 217 million times. We asked researcher, Bob Anderson, why are people watching the eagles.



Anderson says new equipment installed in October will give viewers an even better look at the eagle family this year. Three Decorah eagle eggs hatched last spring, and the eaglets left the nest in the summer months that followed.

Miller Not Concerned With New Maps

Written by

Minnesota released its new statewide redistrcting map on Tuesday. The state almost lost a House seat in the redistricting process but managed to hang on to all of them, which led to minor changes in the map. And that bodes well for Winona Republican Senator Jeremy Miller. He says the process of approving the maps was a smooth one.

The big news is that Representative Michele Bachmann will switch congressional districts after Minnesota’s new map placed her in the same district as Democratic Representative, Betty McCollum.

Billings Speaks Out Against Bill

Written by

Wisconsin workers are one step closer to losing protections against employment discrimination after a bill that would repeal the Equal Pay Enforcement Act passed on a partisan vote Tuesday night. Senate Bill 202 and its Assembly companion would eliminate a deterrent to workplace discrimination by revoking an individual’s right to damages for employment discrimination. State Rep. Jill Billings of La Crosse commented on the bill.

Billings says she was shocked to see that a bill revoking rights of women to equal pay was being debated on the
Assembly floor. Billings says Wisconsin’s motto is Forward,
but this legislation seems like a giant step backwards.
