Court Employee Fingered in Rip-Off

Written by

Crime committed inside the courthouse.  That charge comes in Vernon County, where the senior administrative assistant to the clerk of courts is accused of theft, following reports of money being missing from the office.  Nathena Nelson of Viroqua has been charged with embezzling between 25-hundred and five thousand dollars.  A special prosecutor will be brought in from Richland County.

Officer Mistake Excused by Appeals Court

Written by

It was a case of mistaken identity...but an officer still had a good reason to stop a western Wisconsin driver for a possible traffic violation.  That ruling comes from a Wisconsin appeals court, denying the appeal by Nathan Teasdale of Grant County.  Teasdale was convicted of driving after his license was revoked.  The arresting officer stopped Teasdale's car because he didn't think the license plate was on the right vehicle.  The cop made a mistake, and Teasdale said evidence in the case should be suppressed because of the error.  But the appeals judges ruled that the officer had a reasonable suspicion that the car might be stolen, even if he was later proved wrong.

More Secret Chamber of Commerce Meetings Likely

Written by

More than a hundred business people gathered in La Crosse yesterday to talk about roads and traffic.  The La Crosse Chamber of Commerce sponsored that discussion, to give the business reps a chance to talk frankly about what changes they might want in local transportation.  Chamber director Vicki Markussen says some people from the business community do not feel comfortable giving their opinions where their customers, or the media, would notice.

Markussen says the Chamber could have similar meetings in the future...setting up rules where speakers can offer ideas about community needs while avoiding arguments.

Minnesota Lawmaker Expects MNSure Failure Soon

Written by

Apparently, they can't read.  That's the only reason Minnesota state rep Greg Davids can see for six US Supreme court justices voting to uphold the subsidies in Obamacare for those states that haven't set up their own exchanges.  He doesn't understand how a reasonable person can look at the law, read subsidies for only state exchanges, and figure lawmakers didn't mean it.

 

Despite the ruling, Davids says the state-run exchange in Minnesota, MNSure, is still on the rocks and he expects failure of that to come soon.

Retiring Gar: Ash Slash the Right Approach

Written by

Some historical perspective on the fight against the current tree disease in the city of La Crosse.  Retiring city superintendent of parks, Gar Amunson, says the city's current no quarter approach toward the emerald ash borer is the right one to take because there's no way to beat a disease or infestation with the strength of the ash borer.  The city's fight against Dutch Elm disease proved that.

 

Amunson is retiring from the city just a few days shy of forty years on the job.

La Crosse County could choose its new Family Court Commissioner yet this week.  The county personnel office tells us that seven finalists were interviewed on Tuesday, and judges will choose a commissioner in the next few days.  The winning candidate will succeed Gloria Doyle, who has been elected circuit judge.  We're told that the new commissioner could start work the first week of August.

Jumping Worms Getting Full Attention of DNR

Written by
The DNR is getting serious about tackling the great jumping worm invasion in the state.  Officially here for just the last couple of years, they've probably been around much longer than that, says DNR forest health specialist Bernie Williams.  And, yes, jumping worms really do jump and thrash and make all kinds of not-so-worm-like movements.   Williams says it's too early to determine exactly what impact the jumping worms will have in the state but the worms do destroy surrounding vegetation.

County Jobless Rate Ticks Higher

Written by

Just one county in Wisconsin now with double digit unemployment rates.  That's the latest breakdown from the state's labor department.  Menominee county is the one county recording a jobless rate over 10 percent for May.  Far cry from La Crosse county's unemployment rate of four percent for May, which is higher than last month's 3.4 percent.  Despite the April to May dip, the state says all counties had lower unemployment rates last month than May of last year.

Gun Bill Sends Guns to School

Written by
Potentially more guns in schools in Wisconsin now.  Governor Walker on Wednesday signs a bill that allows off-duty, retired, and out-of-state police to carry guns in schools.  Sponsor republican state senator Van Wanggard says this is a law to cheer about because it will only lead to more safety in schools. Wanggard also sponsored the other gun bill that Walker signed on Wednesday; the one that gets rid of the state's decades-old 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.
