First Lady Visits Iowa

Written by

(AP) Thousands of students, several well-known athletes and a number of politicians are expected to join Michelle Obama for an event in Des Moines that will promote exercise and healthy eating. Besides the first lady, participants at the Thursday event include Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, gymnast Shawn Johnson, figure skater Michelle Kwan and NASCAR champion Carl Edwards.

 

 

About 10,000 children will be bused to the event from 45 schools in the Des Moines area. It will be Obama's first stop on a three-day national tour marking her Let's Move initiative, which promotes physical fitness and healthy eating for children. She's been drawn to Des Moines by Iowa's Healthiest State initiative. That program aims to make Iowa the healthiest state by 2016.

Jackson County Man Missing

Written by

Jackson County authorities are looking for 20 year old Gene Cloud Jr. and are asking for the public's help. He was last seen January 25th when the vehicle he was operating slid in the ditch in Millston Township, Jackson County. Cloud fled from the scene on foot and was chased by law enforcement before getting away. On January 27th, he was reported as a missing person by family members. It is possible that Cloud was picked up by somebody and given a ride, but the family says he should have made contact with someone at this point.

Gene Cloud Jr. is a Native American male, 5’8", approximately 140 pounds, black hair, brown eyes, last seen wearing a black leather jacket, black hooded sweatshirt, jeans and black tennis shoes. Cloud was in possession of a 6 month old male Daschund puppy; brown in color short hair. It is believed that the puppy was wearing a sweater.

Anyone with information regarding Cloud or the missing dog is encouraged to contact the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department or the Ho-Chunk Nation Police Department.

There are now two democrats running for Governor and their both named Kathleen. This one is the Senator from Alma. In an announcement today, Kathleen Vinehout says Wisconsin needed a fresh name and a fresh set values.

Vienhout was first elected in 2006 and won re-election in 2010. She and Kathleen Falk are the only two candidates from either side to run in a recall election against Governor Scott Walker.

Minnesota District Talks Sexuality

Written by

(AP) The teachers union in Minnesota's largest school district has endorsed a proposed replacement for a policy that requires teachers to stay neutral when issues of sexual orientation come up in class. Local President Julie Blaha says the representative assembly of Anoka-Hennepin Education Minnesota showed overwhelming support for the proposed ``Respectful Learning Environment'' policy in a voice vote Monday. Critics say the district's existing neutrality policy on human sexuality hampers teachers from preventing bullying of students who are gay or perceived as gay, and the district is the target of two lawsuits challenging it. Supporters of the policy include parents who believe homosexual conduct is immoral and don't want teachers telling their children that gay relationships are acceptable. The school board is expected to vote on the proposed policy Feb. 13.

Minnesota Caucuses Tonight

Written by

(AP) Minnesota Republicans are basking in the attention of the political world, with caucuses Tuesday night that matter for a change. The nomination fight is usually wrapped up well before Minnesota gets its turn, or else the state is lumped in with much bigger prizes. This year, all four GOP presidential hopefuls have dropped by in the final week. Mitt Romney is hoping for a repeat of his 2008 victory, but the traditionally small turnout could give an opening to Rick Santorum or Ron Paul. Republican caucus attendees tend toward the conservative, especially those most concerned with social issues. Tea party members could play a role in the outcome. The caucuses start at 8 p.m. EST and nearly complete results are typically known within a few hours.

Falk Takes Campaign On Road

Written by

(AP) Democrat Kathleen Falk is embarking on a statewide tour to tout her campaign against Republican Gov. Scott Walker. State election officials are still in the process of verifying that at least 540,208 signatures were submitted on petitions seeking Walker's recall from office. Once that is done, an election would be scheduled. Falk is the only announced Democratic candidate. She planned a two-day tour of the state that begins Tuesday in Milwaukee and then continues in Green Bay and Wausau. On Wednesday she plans to be in Eau Claire and La Crosse. A number of other Democrats are considering getting into the race, but none of them have officially declared yet.

Tough decisions, maybe for city leaders in La Crosse.  The city wants to develop the  former industrial Mobil Oil site.  But many also want to tackle struggling neighborhood values.   And maybe can't afford to do both at the same time, says housing expert at the UW Extension office, Karl Green

 

 

The city's been working on acquiring and cleaning up the 65 acre site on the Black River for years.  So far, there's no solid plan on what to turn it into.

La Crosse Council Will Vote on New Garbage Regulations

Written by

The overriding idea behind new regulations on garbage pick-up in La Crosse is to make things look nicer.  To that end, the rules would restrict how long garbage cans could be put out.  Can't leave them on the curb for a couple days.  Can't sit them on the edge of the alley.  With some exceptions, says city public works director Dale Hexom. 

 

 

La Crosse city council votes on the new garbage rules this week.

Man Kicks Cop After Bar Beat Down

Written by
Still some questions about how a guy was treated after a ruckus in a downtown La Crosse bar last week.   Police say 26 year-old Peter Spencer got a little out of control in the bar, was doing roundhouse kicks on the dance floor, rushed the DJ, and finally was corralled by bouncers.  A witness said those bouncers appeared to go way over the top in subduing Spencer.  But Spencer didn't make it easy for himself, either, especially after he kicked an officer on the way to a squad car, leading to a much more serious charge than the one he was facing for the bar scuffle.  Spencer was booked into jail after getting released from the hospital this week-end.
