Pro-Life Campaign In Lax Targets Obama, Baldwin
Pro-life activists are calling Barack Obama the most pro-abortion president ever...and they claim he'd be even worse in a second term.
Members of a pro-life campaign are traveling to key swing states, asking people to back anti-abortion candidates for president and U-S Senate. Jill Stanek is a nurse from Illinois who says that when Obama was a State Senator, he voted against pro-life measures that would protect live children who survived abortions.
The 'Women Speak Out' tour held a rally at Riverside Park in La Crosse today...saying Wisconsin's Tammy Baldwin is one of five Senate candidates they're trying to defeat.
3 Lawmakers Want Reciprocity Signed
In 2009, Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty stopped a long term reciprocity agreement after Wisconsin failed to settle up with a timely payment of taxes owed the Gopher State. That may be why now Governor Mark Dayton has not agreed to another agreement yet. State Rep. Steve Doyle thought this was all behind us.
In 1968, Minnesota and Wisconsin entered into an agreement that allowed Wisconsin residents who worked in Minnesota to only file Wisconsin taxes. The same was true for Minnesota residents who worked in Wisconsin. The states would settle up the difference later through a payment to the state owed tax money. Without an agreement in place by October, it’s impossible to repair the agreement for the coming 2013 tax year.

Partly why city park and rec director Steve Carlyon was willing to spend a couple months answering a city council member's question on whether the building might be worth saving even after the council voted in April to tear it down. No, Carlyon has discovered, it's not worth saving
The century-old converted barn is still in use as a banquet facility, but Carlyon guesses it might come down as soon as this fall.
Lakeview Looked At By County
La Crosse County is hoping a consultant can help them decide what the right move is when discussing what to do with the aging Lakeview Health Center in West Salem. County Administrator, Steve O'Malley, says there are quite a few things to be looked at here.
The county needs to decide whether to spend on improving infrastructure in the current center or build a facility that would be more cost efficient and better able to adapt to client needs. A new facility also would allow clients to remain at the current center during construction.
