Gun Advocates Eager for Change They Can Believe In
Don't think that gun toting advocates in Wisconsin have stopped smiling yet. Onalaska's Hubert Hoffman is vice president of Wisconsin Carry Inc. And he's more than a bit optimistic about the possibility of a new state law allowing concealed carry with Republicans sweeping to power in Madison after Tuesday's voting. Although he recognizes the process might have to be put on hold due to Republican campaign promises about balancing budgets, cutting government spending and stopping the high speed rail line. But, after that, Hoffman expects concealed carry to become law relatively quickly. Probably within a year.
School, Town Vandalized
Vandals struck the City of Holmen last night.
Holmen School Superintendent Dale Carlson tells WIZM news his staff found the front of the high school had been spray painted sometime last night or early this morning. He could not release what exactly was painted on the building.
Holmen Police Chief, Mike McHugh, says that they have received some tips as to who the perps may be....and at the same time are looking at school video surveillance tape.
In a letter to parents, from High School Principal Bob Lecheler, other places around the village were also been vandalized
Alternate Side Parking Experiment, Year Two
Last year should be considered a test year for suspending alternate side parking rules in an area around UW La Crosse.
This year: Another test year. City public works director Dale Hexom says that's because last winter only had a few snow emergencies and ended abruptly. And that, he says, wasn't enough to determine if lifting regular alternate side parking rules was a process they wanted to keep permanently.
In the exempt area, cars only have to adhere to alternate side parking rules during events like snow emergencies, leaf pick-up and street sweeping.
