A dispute between neighbors over chemical spraying in Trempealeau County could lead to a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling.

The high court says it will review a complaint by a couple from the Independence area, who want their neighbor held liable for killing dozens of trees on their land. The neighbor hired a forestry company to spray herbicide on his farm land, but the chemical apparently also destroyed trees on nearby property. An appeals court asked the Supreme Court to decide whether the neighbor can be sued for property damages, for hiring the foresters.

Rob Pharmacies, Go To Prison

Written by

A Tomah man will spend the next 20 months in prison sentence after he held up four Madison area pharmacies earlier this year. 35 year old Jesse Kirk received his federal sentence earlier this week.

Prosecutors proved that Kirk went on a 10 day, four pharmacy robbery spree in April. In court, they sad Kirk took various types of controlled substances, such as OxyContin, during the robberies.

A judge said a prison term was necessary due to the severity of the conduct and threats of violence made during the holdups. The judge also said the robberies stemmed from Kirk's drug addictions.

New WTC Greenhouse Construction Starting Soon

Written by

In the last two years, the site of an old greenhouse near La Crosse's Myrick Park has been going through some changes.

That land is being prepared for energy-efficient housing, while a new greenhouse will be built downtown, on the site of the former Ivy Motel. Western Technical College president Lee Rasch says you'll see lots of construction at both locations in the new year.

 

Western is working with Mayo Clinic and the Hillview Urban Agriculture Center on the project. WTC students will be put to work building the houses and also operating the greenhouse, where food will be grown for Mayo nutrition programs.

W Salem Farmer Named VP Of National Soybean Group

Written by

A soybean grower from West Salem will be spending more time on the road in the future, promoting his profession at a national level...

Kevin Hoyer has been chosen as a vice-president of the American Soybean Association. This follows several years of service by Hoyer on Wisconsin's state soybean board.  Speaking on the Wisconsin Farm Report on WKTY, Hoyer says it's important to educate members of Congress who don't come from rural areas about bills affecting farm policy:

 

Hoyer says especially with the lack of a new farm bill out of Congress, growers need to be active in groups that can shape farm laws, and bring better products to market.
