Recall Dates Set

Written by

(AP) A Wisconsin judge has signed off an agreement that would make May 8 or June 5 the dates for recall elections against Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republicans. Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess gave the agreement an official OK Wednesday. The tentative deal was reached a day earlier by lawyers for the state elections board, recall committees and recall targets. Under the deal, any required primaries would be held May 8 with a general election four weeks later, on June 5. Otherwise a primary election would have been May 1 and the general election May 29, near the Memorial Day holiday. Four Republican state senators face recall elections. It appears nearly certain that Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch,  will also stand for recall.

New Bird Cam Coming

Written by

Over 270 million people combined have tuned in on the internet for the 2nd straight year to watch the Decorah eagles. People like eagles. They are strong, have powerful yellow beaks and are a national treasure. So when Bob Anderson, developer, decided to place a cam in a turkey vultures nest in Missouri....why does he think more people will watch them hatch eggs and raise their young then the eagles?

They won't be around for about a month though....the turkey vultures are still in South America.

New Phone Scam Out There

Written by

Phone scammers are back and they bring a whole new bag baby. This time acting like debt collectors and some armed with your bank account numbers. Quite a few complaints coming in George Althoff of the department of financial institutions.

If contacted.......tell the caller that you refuse to discuss any debt until you get a written validation notice through the U.S. mail. The notice must include the amount of the alleged debt, the name of the collection agency, the name of the creditor you allegedly owe, and your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Wisconsin is among a very small group.  At least when it comes to total job numbers for last year.   Revised totals from the feds say Wisconsin lost over 12 thousand jobs in 2011.  One of only five states to lose jobs for the year.   Which makes it all the more frustrating, says Onalaska state rep Steve Doyle, that more is not being done at the close of the current legislative session to create more jobs in the state

 

 

 

Wisconsin lost a total of 12 thousand non-farm jobs last year.  The biggest loser of jobs in the nation.  The state with the next largest number of job losses was Missouri, with four thousand.

A step too far for tax exempt charities in Wisconsin.  Mike McCabe, with the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, has filed IRS complaints against three organizations for getting involved in political campaigns in the state. An action that violates the IRS code that grants them tax exempt status

 

 

Americans for Prosperity, the MacIver Institute and the Heartland Institute are targets for the complaints.  McCabe says, in all cases, the groups have openly campaigned for Governor Scott Walker as he faces a recall election.

A Galesville man said he couldn't afford to keep up with his divorce settlement, but an appeals court has called him out on that claim...The Third District Court of Appeals will not grant Daniel Smith another chance to work out a settlement with his ex-wife. The judges ruled that Smith was secretly getting routine payments from a family business, along with his regular salary...payments that added up to hundreds of dollars a month. Smith appealed the court-ordered support payments and attorney's fees, following the break-up of his 21-year marriage.
