Kader Keeps Council Seat In Recall Race
A landslide win for Audrey Kader...
The La Crosse City Council president got 73 per cent of the votes in a three-way recall race on Tuesday. Kader received 196 votes in the 11th district, to 42 for Jerome Gundersen and 26 for Gage Maurer. Local tea party activists wanted Kader removed from the council for reportedly leading efforts to reduce public input at council meetings. Kader also was one of several La Crosse School Board members targeted for recall in 1992, after the board approved a controversial school boundary map and busing plan. Kader won that election, too.

Flag Football For Young Players To Continue In Onalaska
The Onalaska park department tackled the subject of youth sports last fall, when it sent out a survey on whether tackle football should expand to lower grades.
Families are saying, keep the program as it is. About 80 families answered the survey, with about half of those responding saying 3rd and 4th graders should continue playing flag football. A previous survey years ago also showed little demand for starting tackle football as early as 3rd grade.
