Big Grant Funds Natural Area Improvements

Written by

  Ten grand to help preserve some land near Prairie du Chien is a welcome gift for local conservationists.  The Mississippi Valley Conservancy has just landed a ten thousand dollar grant from 3M to help fund improvements to recently acquired land at its recently acquired property at the Sugar Creek Bluff state natural area, says Conservancy executive director Carol Abrahamzon.  She says the grant will be used to open up trails, improve accessibility as well as work on restoration of the property. 

The Sugar Creek property is close to a 3M plant and Abrahamzon says, the company is active in promoting conservation of the area. Abrahamzon says large grants like the one from 3M, though rare, are essential to not only preserving land but maintaining it as well.

Secrecy Shrouds Budget Talks

Written by

Supposed to be final details of a two year budget deal for Wisconsin getting hammered out in Madison today.  Which would be fine, says Jay Heck, from Wisconsin Common Cause; if there wasn't so much secrecy in the process leading up to the final version.  But it's all secret, he says; everything done behind closed doors and mostly with Republicans calling the shots. 

 

Republicans did announce a deal earlier this week that will leave a new Milwaukee Bucks arena and changes to the state's prevailing wage laws out of the new two-year spending plan.   

Comment

A Tomah man arrested last year for his fourth drunk-driving charge is trying to get the state to nullify his first OWI, from more than 20 years ago.  But an appeals court says John Navrestad did not make a convincing case for dropping the 1992 charge.  Navrestad says his very first arrest should not count on his record, because the court mistakenly did not count it after his second arrest.  His most recent OWI case in Monroe County has not concluded yet.

President Visit to La Crosse Partially a Payback

Written by

The last 10 days have been pretty good for President Obama...with Supreme Court rulings in his favor, and passage of new trade rules.  Pundits are saying that Obama's trip to La Crosse today is sort of a 'victory lap' for him.  We spoke this morning with White House press secretary Josh Earnest, who says that sometimes, different things that have been in the works for years can reach a peak at the same time.  

 

Earnest says the La Crosse trip for Obama is partly a thank-you to Congressman Ron Kind for his help in passing fast-track trade legislation.

Education Budgets Flat, Group Complains

Written by
According to an analysis by the nonpartisan Wisconsin Budget Project, Governor Scott Walker and the Republican led legislature have proposed a budget that doesn't provide much in the way of new resources for the state's public schools.

Tamarine Cornelius, with the organization, says what's really happening is the additional funds for public education promised in the budget will be delivered in a way that won't allow district to put that money to work educating public school students.
 
 
 

 

Cornelius says the complexities of the school funding system in Wisconsin make it difficult for the average person to understand, but according to her, Governor Walker actually is giving the money as a tax cut.

Court: More Evidence Needed in Child Death

Written by

More evidence from the state crime lab may be needed before any decisions are made on a trial in a La Crosse County child abuse case.  An August 10th hearing has been scheduled now for Jaymie Rundle of Holmen.  Rundle and her boyfriend are accused of physically abusing the man's three-year-old daughter to the point where she died late last year.  Examinations of the girl's body indicate repeated signs of physical injuries, excessive salt consumption, and extreme starvation.  The girl's father, Dylan Bartsh, already is scheduled for trial next month.

Kind: Boost Overtime, Boost Economy

Written by

A plan to allow more Americans to be paid for overtime may be the centerpiece of President Obama's speech, when he comes to U-W-L today.  The Obama visit has been advertised as dealing with the economy.  Congressman Ron Kind says the economy could be helped by an expansion of overtime pay.

Kind says Congress should schedule a vote on the overtime proposal, rather than leaving Obama to take credit or blame for it.
