Walker Ready For Speech

Written by
(AP) Gov. Scott Walker plans to use his State of the State speech on Wednesday to make a plea to small businesses to add one job each this year. Walker's spokesman Cullen Werwie on Tuesday said the governor will make the request for those companies that are poised to grow. Walker promised in the 2010 campaign that if elected he would change the state's business climate so 250,000 jobs would be created in the private sector over four years. After his first year in office, just 13,500 jobs have been added. There have been job losses each of the past six months. Werwie says the governor will use the speech to talk about progress that has been made and how Walker believes the foundation has been laid for a better future.

Tea Party Ready To Count Signatures

Written by
(AP) Organizers with several Wisconsin Tea Party groups say they have thousands of volunteers ready to check the validity of signatures to recall Gov. Scott Walker and other GOP leaders.
Organizers with We the People of the Republic and The Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty held a press conference Tuesday at the state Capitol to announce about 11,000 people have pledged online to check for fraudulent signatures through an online system. The groups are working with a Texas-based group to create the database program that will allow volunteers to check the signatures from home. They will receive webinar training to check for signs of fraud. The groups, which call themselves bipartisan, say they're looking for duplicate names and incorrect addresses.

Home Sales Up And Down

Written by

(AP) Home sales in Wisconsin rose slightly last year. But, prices for those homes dropped about 6.5 percent. Real estate experts say the sale of distressed properties are weighing on the price of existing homes, and probably will continue to do so in the near future. Real estate agents sold about 51,500 houses last year in Wisconsin up about 120 homes from the previous year.

 

 

The median price was $132,000 down from $141,000 the year before. Wisconsin Realtors Association president Mike Theo says it continues to be a buyer's market with a large inventory of homes for sale.

Minnesota Lawmakers Go Back To Work

Written by

(AP) Minnesota lawmakers are returning to St. Paul for the 2012 legislative session. The state House and Senate both convene at noon Tuesday. The sessions are expected to be short and mostly ceremonial. Gov. Mark Dayton is hosting lawmakers and their families at a reception in his office. This year's session is expected to run into sometime in April. Lawmakers will debate Dayton's proposal to boost job creation with a $775 million bonding bill. Several Republican-backed constitutional amendment proposals will get a look including a requirement for a photo ID to vote and for a legislative supermajority to raise taxes. The Minnesota Vikings' push for a public subsidy to build a new football stadium is also likely to draw the attention of lawmakers.

Governors Money Coming From Out Of State

Written by

(AP) More than 60 percent of the donations Gov. Scott Walker has received from individuals since Dec. 11 came from outside Wisconsin. An analysis of Walker's latest campaign finance reports submitted Monday done by the government watchdog group the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign shows that 61 percent of his money came from out of state. That includes $1 million he got from three Missouri donors and one from Texas over a single week earlier in January. The Democracy Campaign says roughly half of the $4.5 million Walker raised over the past five weeks came from 33 individual donors. Walker has raised $12.1 million since last year, the most-ever by a candidate for governor in Wisconsin beating his previous $10 million record set in 2010.

For awhile, getting rid of your old electronic gear meant paying someone to take it.  That has changed just recently around La Crosse.  The county is now accepting e-waste free of charge.  And Habitat for Humanity's Re-store just started doing the same thing

 

 

Cory Skolaski heads Habitat for Humanity and the Restore in La Crosse.  She says they made the move to free e-waste recycling in part to make it easier for people on the southside of La Crosse to recycle rather than illlegally throwing away their old electronics.

Homicide Charges Filed In La Crosse Drug Death

Written by

An apparent drug-related death in La Crosse is now considered a murder case...

The district attorney's office has brought reckless homicide charges against Cain Moss and Christina Lorenz, nearly six months after they were arrested for allegedly hiding the body of Anthony Du Charme near a city park. Earlier testimony in the case indicated that 'Tony, Tina, and Cain' had used drugs together just before Tony suddenly died.  Judge Ramona Gonzalez commended the D-A for waiting until an autopsy was concluded before charging anyone with killing Du Charme.
