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.

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.
