Number 12 Has His Own Day.......Soon

Written by
The state Senate has passed a resolution naming a day for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The resolution designates Dec. 12, 2012, as Aaron Rodgers Day. Rodgers, who wears No. 12, led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory last year and helped them to a 15-2 record this past season. The New York Giants defeated Green Bay in the playoffs and went on to win the Super Bowl. The Senate passed the resolution Wednesday afternoon. The state Assembly passed the resolution last month.

Cheesehead Honored At Capitol

Written by
Wisconsin lawmakers have honored the man who used cheese to create one of the state's most beloved cultural symbols. The state Senate voted unanimously on a joint resolution to honor entrepreneur Ralph Bruno and his hat-making employees at Foamation Inc. in St. Francis.
Bruno created the famous cheesehead hat in 1987 using stuffing from his couch. The hat has become a popular state symbol, frequently worn by fans at Packers games and other sporting events. The resolution also cleared in the Assembly Tuesday after some lawmakers donned the bright yellow foam cheesehead hats in Bruno's honor. Cheesehead hats are sold today in all 50 states and in more than 30 countries.

Deer Hunter Forum In Westby Tonight

Written by

The deer hunting seasons might still be months away, but the Department of Natural Resources is already gearing up with a series of deer hunter forums this month. Anyone interested in the opportunity to discuss local deer management issues, hunting seasons, and any other deer topic is encouraged to attend.

A local meeting will be held today from 4-8pm for Crawford, La Crosse, Monroe and Vernon counties at the Bekkum Memorial Library, in Westby.

The deer hunter forums will put the public in direct contact with
the local biologist responsible for managing the local deer herd, and are intended to both share information about deer management and gather information from hunters about deer where they live, hunt or farm.

La Crosse Woman's Death Considered A Murder

Written by

Police are treating the death of a 35-year-old woman as a homicide.

Chief Ed Kondracki says an autopsy has been performed on the body of Kristen Rodgers, who was found dead in a Caledonia St. parking lot early Tuesday.  The cause of her death has not been released, but Kondracki says it was not accidental, and is "possibly drug-related."  The chief says the murder is thought to be an isolated incident, not related to other recent drug deaths in the area. Any clues can be called into 784-TIPS

Billings Is Listening To The Candidates

Written by

State Represenative, Jill Billings, says she is watching the gubernatorial campaign trail of Kathleen Vinehout and Kathleen Falk real closely. But the one thing that bothers the La Crosse Democrat, is the talk of fake candidates being used in primaries like we saw last year in recall elections.

Billings, during her interview with WIZM News, did not say which candidate she would support...saying she's listening like everyone else is....to the issues each one has.

Campbell Votes To Buy Church For Library

Written by

A former Baptist church on French Island will be turned into a new library for the Town of Campbell.

Town residents voted 134 to 55 in favor of the purchase on Tuesday night, after a public hearing.  The library would be moved out of the town hall to provide more space for emergency services.  Some opponents of the plan argued that the town government doesn't need more space if the population has not grown, while others suspected that town officials had a conflict of interest in arranging for the purchase.
