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.

Marsh Transfer Part of Long Standing Plan

Written by

The only reason the city of La Crosse and the DNR are talking about a land transfer right now is because of the argument over a north south road through the city that started nearly two decades ago.  

 

 

The DNR's Craig Thompson was part of the talks that led to the city council adopting a plan to hand over the city's marsh land in response to the threat of road getting built through the marsh.  He's now urging the city to follow through with that plan now that road plans are starting to simmer again.

State Reaching Out To Help Jobless Veterans

Written by

Picture the Wisconsin economy as a patient in a hospital...

One member of Governor Walker's cabinet says the state was bleeding jobs for years, but in the last few months, we've 'stopped the bleeding.' Reggie Newson, the secretary of Workforce Development, uses that comparison to show that employment prospects are getting better, especially for veterans. Newson says job centers around Wisconsin are ready to help veterans who are in the job market.

 

A special career fair for veterans is planned the last week of June at the Western Tech campus in La Crosse. It's one of more than a dozen scheduled around the state between now and December.

There's bound to be some in Minnesota outside of the twin cities who wonder why the state is getting involved in a funding deal for a new Vikings stadium in Minneapolis.  But Cory Merrifield, founder of the website Save-the-Vikes.org says three million fans who tune in for every Vikings game on Sunday around the state know how important the team is to the state.  And if a deal isn't done soon, it could be curtains for the storied franchise in Minnesota

 

[ cory merrifield 7 is unavailable ]

 

Current deal for the stadium would mix additional gambling revenue with money from Minneapolis and several hundred million dollars from Vikings owners.  The new stadium would be built close to where the Metrodome is now.

New Provost At UW-L

Written by

A Minnesota native who currently lives in England will return to the Midwest to become Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Heidi Slettedahl Macpherson, who currently serves as Pro Vice Chancellor of Research and Innovation at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, will begin her new UW-L position effective July 1st. Macpherson says her 22-year experience overseas will help her transition  into her role at UW-L, where she’s already taken note of an emphasis on academics. Macpherson was selected from an international search. She follows former Provost Kathleen Enz Finken, who resigned in December to become provost at Cal Poly University.

Minnesota Budget Works

Written by

(AP) Gov. Mark Dayton says he'll try to pare back an overseas corporate tax break to finance a tax credit he wants for Minnesota companies that hire veterans, students or the currently unemployed. The tax break-for-tax break swap is the cornerstone of a supplemental budget he released Monday. It contains roughly $60 million in changes to a multibillion-dollar budget. Other features include reversing some health program cuts made a year ago. Lawmakers set the state's two-year budget last year and technically don't have to adjust it. Dayton's proposal hinges on the reduction of a tax preference for Minnesota businesses with overseas operations or subsidiaries. The change would generate $40 million if enacted this year. Republicans have long resisted the corporate tax change, arguing it would be a hardship on businesses.
