Winona Realtor Jack Krage and Senator Jeremy Miller, of Winona, will compete for the District 28 seat in the Minnesota Senate in 2012.
The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party endorsed Krage at a convention last month. Miller got his party’s nod last month as well. Krage says he's got plenty of ammunition and that Miller’s record alone will bury him. Miller says he feels confident in being re-elected. Candidates have until 5pm today to file for office.
Generally, motor vehicles get license plates in Wisconsin. Not ATV's. Until now. Starting next month, the DNR will require you to put a license plate for the back of your ATV. And that's more than a few new license plates
Todd Schaller's with the DNR. The agency won't provide you with a license plate, so you have to buy one from a private company or make one yourself. As long as it's the right size, black and white, and the letters and numbers are big enough, you should be okay.
A jury is set for a double murder trial in La Crosse...
After the questioning of dozens of candidates, 15 jurors have been chosen for the Eric Koula trial. Opening statements will be made Tuesday morning, after which the jury will be taken to the Barre Mills home where Koula's parents were shot to death two years ago. Koula is suspected of killing his parents for money, but his defense team argues that the shootings appeared to be professionally done.
The Koula trial may become one of the longest murder trials ever in La Crosse County, scheduled to last four weeks. In June of 1994, James Frydenlund was tried for the beating deaths of his estranged wife and her parents. The case lasted nearly three weeks, and ended with Frydenlund being found 'not guilty.'
The challenger in the recall race for governor of Wisconsin has his focus on the Badger State...not on a national stage.
Democrat Tom Barrett tells reporters in La Crosse that he has tried to concentrate on statewide issues in his second run against Scott Walker. The mayor of Milwaukee believes Governor Walker has been too eager to make the recall race a preview of the presidential election.
La Crosse Congressman Ron Kind drove Barrett up to Jules' Coffee House on Pearl Street for a local appearance this morning.
A vote for Tom Barrett would be a vote for more recall elections in Wisconsin.
Governor Scott Walker makes that argument, in a final campaign swing through the La Crosse area before the Tuesday recall. Walker tells reporters at West Salem that Democrats would push for more recall elections if Barrett becomes governor. But if Walker is re-elected, that would be a call to lawmakers to change the recall law.
Although at least one person greeting Walker in West Salem wore a 'Scott Walker for President' shirt, Walker says he's not interested in seeking a higher office...because he expects to keep his current job.
