Soldiers Off To Farm

Written by

The Wisconsin National Guard is planning a pair of send off ceremonies this weekend for about 200 soldiers headed overseas. And for one group it won't be handling a security group or looking for land mines. They will be farming.

Colonel Darrel Foyt says a lot of the soldiers were doing agri science learning and instruction at UW-Madison. That ceremony is set for Saturday afternoon at Hartford High School in Hartford. That ceremony will honor about 60 members of the 82nd Agribusiness Development Team.

Gow Wants To See Buildings Renovated

Written by

There are 5 or 6 buildings on the campus of UW-L that are not equipped with sprinkler systems. That's because when they were built in the 50's and 60's, they were not required to have them installed. Now, they are required to have them in the buildings. Would that have helped the fire at Drake Hall Sunday?

Chancellor Joe Gow says they want to renovate and place sprinkler systems in all of the older buildings....but at $7 million a crack...finding funding may slow things down a bit.

Monroe County Movement On New Jail and Courthouse

Written by

Monroe County will spend $15 thousand to advertise on the two location possibilities for the new county justice center listed on the April 3rd referendum.



The motion passed this week on a 14-7 vote. The two proposed sites for the new facility would be where the current courthouse and jail sits in Sparta....or a county owned dog pound site on Highway 71. The information would include the price of building each facility as well as operational costs for each site.

Walker To Speak In Florida

Written by

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to speak next week at a Florida event hosted by the conservative James Madison Institute. The institute says Walker plans to give a speech at a golf resort in Naples, Fla. Tickets for non-members ranged from $100 per person to $2,500 for table sponsorships. Institute spokeswoman Tanja Clendinen says ticket costs are covering expenses for the event, and none of the money raised will go to Walker.

Walker has been traveling across the country appearing at similar events as he's racked up more than $12 million to defend himself from a potential recall election. Recall organizers say they have submitted about 1 million signatures to force a recall election. It takes about 540,000. Election officials are in the process of verifying the signatures.

Big Storm Brewin

Written by

(AP) A powerful winter storm system that could dump a dozen inches of snow in blizzard conditions has been forecast for Nebraska and portions of adjacent states.  A blizzard warning has been issued for three southwest Nebraska counties and nearby portions of Kansas and Colorado. The National Weather Service says the warnings take effect at 11 p.m. MST Thursday. A blizzard watch extends to the northeast. Winter storm warnings and watches have been issued to take effect later Thursday or on Friday for the rest of Nebraska and much of southeast Wyoming, northeast Colorado, northwest Kansas and western Iowa. The service says the storm is expected to move into Nebraska late Thursday night and last into Saturday. Rain is expected to precede the snowfall in many areas.

GAB Posts Petitions Online

Written by

Since the Government Accountability Board decided to post recall petitions online Tuesday night, the GAB website has had over 54 thousand unique unique visitors to the site and over 1.2 million page hits....and it's growing. GAB Director, Kevin Kennedy, was asked if he thought the posting of petitions would be big.

In an online interview with Wisconsin Eye, Kennedy says it has not been a popular choice though with people concerned about privacy issues and they even fielded a call from the ACLU wanting more information about how they would post the petitions online.

Cullen Drops Out Of Governors Race

Written by

And then there was one.....for now. That's the latest count when looking at democratic challengers to the governor's post. Senator Tim Cullen of Janesville dropped out Wednesday.

He also said he cannot raise the $1 million to $2 million he believes is needed to deliver his message against other candidates with more resources and better name recognition. That leaves, for now, Kathleen Falk as the only declared candidate.
