01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

Sparta Residents To Vote On Referendum

Written by

Voters in Sparta will decide today whether or not the school district can raise extra money in a referendum for building improvements, after school programs and classroom technology. John Hendricks, the Superintendent of the Sparta Schools, says the referendum would not add to the current tax bill for homeowners because it would replace a referendum passed in 2007, currently in effect, which is set to expire this year.



A renewal would allow the district to continue to exceed its state imposed revenue cap by $750 thousand annually for the next three years.

Minnesota republican lawmakers and governor Dayton haven't exactly been chummy in the last year or so.  But Preston state rep Greg Davids says relationships may thaw a little.  The republican chair of the house tax committee in Saint Paul says he's pleasantly surprised with much of what he heard from the governor in last week's state of the state address.  Davids says, even the democrat's tone was more positive

 

 

Davids says he jotted down several positive notes about issues he'd be willing to work with the governor on.  Like one of Dayton's top priorities, a new Vikings stadium.

Among the many drunk drivers La Crosse police stopped over the week-end, is the one young woman who faces additional charges because of who she was in the car with. Cops say 22 year-old May Yang was driving early Sunday morning with double the legal limit of alcohol in her system. Besides being drunk, they say she was also texting. In the back seat, two kids; two and five years old. Only one of which was buckled in. Cops say they found a booster seat for the other child in Yang's trunk.

Local tea party activists have pitted themselves against the plan for a city administrator in La Crosse for months.  Now proponents will take the other side.   The Administrator Yes! campaign launches Tuesday morning in city hall.  La Crosse voters will face a binding referendum in April on whether to add a city administrator.   Those supporting the change say it will lead to cost-cutting efficiencies in city government.  Critics say it will just mean more government.
