Just Two Running For Lax Mayor So Far

Written by

If the election were held today, there's a good chance the next mayor of La Crosse would be named 'Randy' or 'Randall'...

As of Tuesday, just two men have told the city clerk's office that they want to run for mayor in April...Randall Czapiewski, and Randy Magno. Candidates have until January 2nd to file papers with clerk Teri Lehrke. And Teri's staff will carefully check everything written on the nomination forms, and look for duplicate names.

Lehrke says if you try signing papers for more than one candidate seeking a single office, your name will only count the first time that it's verified at City Hall.

Take Your Christmas Lights To Rotary Lights

Written by

You say that old set of Christmas tree bulbs handed down over the years has conked out?

You could toss them in the trash, but La Crosse County has a better idea...take them to Rotary Lights, and have them recycled for raw materials. The advice comes from county sustainability specialist Nick Nichols, who says Alter Recycling pays for the metal removed from the lighting sets, and gives the money to Rotary Lights.  Nichols also recommends replacing old Christmas light bulbs with LED sets, which use less electricity.

Shotgun Shell Found On Wisconsin Flight

Written by

 

(AP) Passengers on a Delta Air Lines flight were taken off a plane in Milwaukee and re-screened after a man found a live shotgun shell at his seat. Milwaukee County sheriff's spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin says the passenger notified flight crew at about 6:45 a.m. Wednesday of the live shotgun shell while it was at General Mitchell International Airport.

She says deputies and Transportation Security Administration officials had the passengers leave the plane and screened them again and found nothing. She says a canine unit also swept the plane and didn't find anything.

The passengers again boarded the plane, which was bound for Detroit. Delta spokesman Michael Thomas says the flight was delayed about an hour and landed safely in Detroit at 9:55 a.m.

UW System Offers Flexible Degree Programs

Written by

(AP) The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will be the first school in the UW System to offer a so-called flexible degree, in which students will be able to earn college credit for knowledge already gained through work or life experience. UW System officials outlined the program over the summer. On Wednesday they provided details about how the courses would work and which programs would be included.

UW-Milwaukee will begin offering degree programs this fall in nursing, diagnostic imaging and information science, as well as a certificate program in communications. The 13 two-year UW colleges will also provide courses for general education and liberal arts.

The target audience includes nontraditional students such as military veterans and those who left school with some college credits.

State Superintendent Race Begins

Written by

(AP) Republican state Rep. Don Pridemore of Hartford is running for Wisconsin state schools superintendent. Pridemore registered his campaign committee with the state elections board on Wednesday. He joins incumbent state superintendent Tony Evers as the only announced candidates so far seeking the post. The 66-year-old Pridemore was re-elected to his fifth term in the Assembly in November. He was not contested.

 

 

Candidates seeking to become secretary of the Department of Public Instruction can begin circulating nomination papers on Saturday. They are due to be returned on Jan. 2. The election is April 2 but if more than two candidates run there will be a Feb. 19 primary.

The post is officially nonpartisan and the term runs for four years.
