Police have ticketed numerous people still doing over 40.

One deer.  An enclosed farm in Eau Claire county where the deer lived its entire life.  Apparently the only deer on the farm to get sick and die from chronic wasting disease in an area of the state where the disease has never been found. Yes, says Raechelle Cline from state's department of Agriculture, it is a bit of a mystery.  She says the department has no theories right now about how CWD got onto the property but has started an indepth investigation.  The farm has been quarantined and deer can't be removed from the farm unless they're being taken to slaughter.

Soberfest Surges

Written by
Didn't start big.   But Soberfest has grown.  The one day celebration at First Free Church in Onalaska tomorrow will draw thousands for music and fireworks where the first one just a few years ago had just several hundred people attending.  The reason for the rapid growth?  Family pastor at First Free Church, Joe Rigelskythinks it's because the event is a community outreach that hits a niche market not many are talking about.   Brat Pack Radio headlines the entertainment at Soberfest which bills itself as a safe, family-friendly, alcohol-free alternative to other festivals.

The Halves Have it For High School Ballers

Written by
For nearly a decade, high school basketball in Minnesota has played with two 18-minute halves. Thursday, the WIAA made the same change. For a one-year trial, varsity basketball in Wisconsin will no longer be 8-minute quarters. The board voted 7-to-4 for the change. It's not the first time the WIAA has tried to adopt halves. During the 2009-10 season, coaches had the choice to play 16-minute halves for regular-season, non-conference games. The experiment was rarely used.

Comment

Last month, La Crosse firemen rescued a man who had climbed to the top of the Cass Street bridge.  A city fire captain says investigators learned that the man probably was doing drugs.  Captain Jeff Schott says he's seen lots of people do odd or dangerous things under the influence of drugs...but the general public often doesn't care about those addiction problems, they just care about getting to work and don't have sympathy for those with addiction issues.

Schott spoke about a local increase in meth production and possession to the La Crosse County heroin task force on Thursday.  He says area emergency responders have been using NARCAN to save people from overdoses, including one just this week.

Billings Elated After Obamacare Ruling

Written by

A Supreme Court ruling supporting the Affordable Care Act hasn't changed much of anything.  Democrats still like the plan, and Republicans still want to get rid of it.  Among the elected Democrats who's pleased by the court's decision is La Crosse lawmaker Jill Billings who believes the decision gives a sense of surety to those who get their insurance through federal exchanges and benefit from subsidies.

Billings believes that about 16-hundred people in her Assembly district are signed up for Obamacare.  She accuses Governor Scott Walker of continuing to oppose the health care plan as part of his campaign to run for president.

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.
