GOP Can Help With Petition Names

Written by
The state democratic party claims they collected 1.9 million signatures to force recall elections for the Governor, Lt. Governor and 4 republican senators. Not surprising says La Crosse County GOP Chair, Bill Feehan.



Feehan also says if you feel someone wrote your name on a recall petition people you stop into the Republican Headquarters at 58 Copeland Avenue and fill out a form saying that they don't want to have their name appear on the petition.

Sex Education Bill Could Be Voted On Next Week

Written by
(AP) A contentious Republican-backed proposal that would stress abstinence education over contraception use is headed for a vote in the Wisconsin state Assembly.
The Assembly's education committee passed the bill Wednesday on a party line vote. It would rewrite a Democratic-backed law enacted two years ago that requires Wisconsin schools to offer a multi-faceted curriculum that also teaches about contraception. Several Democrats expressed disappointment in the proposal. But Republicans defended its emphasis on local communities' choice for how to teach sex education. The Senate passed the bill last year amid vocal opposition from several public health groups. Anti-abortion groups support the legislation. The bill could come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Assembly as early as next week.

Walker Says He Will Win

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he believes petition circulators have enough valid signatures to force a recall election against him, and he wants it to happen sooner rather than later. Walker told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that he has always assumed they would get the 540,000 signatures they need. Circulators turned in about 1 million signatures Tuesday, and Walker says he does not think enough will be invalidated to stop the election. Democrats say Walker is trying to delay any possible election for as long as possible. But Walker said Wednesday the sooner the election is over the better it is for the people of Wisconsin. Walker says he believes he will prevail in any election, no matter his Democratic opponent.

Obama To Buy Ads In Wisconsin

Written by

(AP) President Barack Obama's campaign is buying advertising time in six states that will be critical to the president's re-election effort, a sign that the presidential campaign is entering a new phase.  A campaign official says the Obama campaign has bought ad time in Michigan, Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Iowa and on national cable television. The official spoke on condition of anonymity and was not authorized to speak publicly about internal campaign strategy.

 

 

Obama's campaign has not yet launched its television advertising, but the decision to buy ad time shows the campaign is moving closer to directly rebutting Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney and other GOP opponents on television.  Obama delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday and then travels to five states to discuss his policies.

Walker Turns Down Fed Money

Written by

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker says he will turn down $37 million from the federal government that had been awarded to help implement health care exchanges under President Barack Obama's health care reform law. Walker announced in December that Wisconsin would not pursue implementing the exchange until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of the law. But he did not say whether the state would take the money. On Wednesday Walker said he was notifying the federal government that it was turning down the Early Innovator Grant, saying it didn't make sense to commit to reforms that could have a devastating economic impact.
The exchanges are designed to help consumers and small businesses compare health plans and increase competition by requiring insurers to offer more plans and provide more information.

Crashes With No Seat Belts Big In December

Written by

The Minnesota State Department of Public Safety is reminding people about the importance of wearing your seat belt. Officials say eight of Minnesota's first ten traffic deaths of the year were not buckled up. They happened 6 different counties, with a wreck in Winona County, one of them. Reports from December indicate 23 people were killed in crashes and only five were wearing their seat belts. State law requires that all drivers and all passengers must buckle up.

Recall Process Is A Right Says One Lawyer

Written by

Since last year, people of Wisconsin have gotten a great education on what a recall election is all about. Some like it...some don't. But Jeremy Levinson, a laywer for the recall committee, says like it or not...it's a right.

He says it creates a very high threshold and it makes it hard so recalls don't happen without good cause. But that threshold was blown out of the water with the number of signatures collected against Governor Scott Walker and others. A path, Levinson says, we will have to get used to in the future.

Onalaska Burglary Suspect Nailed

Written by

With the assistance of LeadsOnline, a suspect has been arrested for the recent rash of garage entries in Onalaska. LeadsOnline is a national online investigative system used by law enforcement to recover stolen property. Pawn shops and police departments have the ability to enter property into the LeadOnline database.

In November, Investigator Chad Marcon entered the serial number of one of the stolen GPS systems into the database. On January 17th, Marcon received a hit on that item showing that it had been pawned at Pawn America in Onalaska. From that lead, a local female was arrested for receiving stolen property. That arrest led to the arrest of the boyfriend of the female suspect who ultimately confessed to 20 garage burglaries and 6 thefts from vehicles. Consent was given to search the residence where a large cache of property was located from the burglaries and thefts. The Onalaska Police Department pays approximately $2 thousand a year to be a member of LeadsOnline.
