Kabat Considering Multiple Parking Options

Written by
Mayor Tim Kabat's not playing around with parking in La Crosse. The mayor has frequently expressed frustration with complications associated with operation of the city's parking ramps. A change in leadership on the city's parking utilty board appears to have stemmed from that frustration. As has the mayor's latest plan to hire someone to manage the city's entire parking system. And more might be coming.  Kabat says, at some point, he might consider privatizing management of the city's parking ramps.
 
 
 
Kabat says, pending on the condition of the city's operating budget, a new parking utility manager for the city could be coming next year.

Holmen Police Department Opens Saturday

Written by

Holmen's police department is 40 years old...and until now, the cops have never had a building just to themselves. That changes this weekend, with a Saturday ribbon cutting at the new police headquarters near Halfway Creek. The 10-thousand square foot police station is four times bigger than the area police occupy now at the Holmen village hall. The larger quarters will include more garage space for squad cars, plus larger training and evidence areas, and a lobby open 24-7. No jail cells, though. People arrested in Holmen will still be sent to the La Crosse County jail.

Drawing Leads to District Lockdown

Written by

A drawing found outside the home of a teacher led to extra precautions in the Tomah school district today. The drawing shows the outline of a large building that police and the school district is similar to the Tomah high school. Multiple exits of the building are marked and the word, 'sniper' is written on the drawing. All the schools in the district went into closed campus mode as a precaution after the drawing was turned into the police department. They're thinking the drawing might be in response to high school students learning about new armed intruder protocols last week. The district plans to return to normal tomorrow.

First Microgrant Awarded at La Crosse Soup

Written by

They made some soup this week in La Crosse. La Crosse Soup. An event at the Root Note cafe in downtown La Crosse. People show up, pay five bucks, eat free soup and bread and weigh in on a few ideas about how to make the city better. The winning idea receives whatever gets collected at the door. Last night, organizer Andrew Londre tells us, exactly a hundred people showed up. So a five hundred dollar microgrant goes to Dan Christen, a guy who's installing a 'bike fixit station' in La Crosse. Londre hopes to continue the La Crosse Soup mini crowdfunding event every month.

WIAA Questions Plan for Home-Schooled Athletes

Written by
Language added to the state budget last week by the legislature s Joint Finance Committee would require public schools to allow many private, virtual, charter and homeschooled students who live in their district to participate in their sports teams and other extracurricular activities.
 
WIAA Executive Director, Dave Anderson tells us he was shocked to learn this was brought up in the first place.
 
 
 
If it remains in the budget, Anderson says it could impact districts across the state, while also likely requiring the WIAA to change its rules for participation. Anderson also says it could also cause complications for some many rural districts, where the chance to compete in sports is the main attraction for staying at a high school, rather than exploring a virtual school curriculum.

Wisconsin's Democratic Senator says lawmakers are working on ways to avoid a repeat of the prescription drug scandal seen at the Tomah VA Medical Center. Tammy Baldwin says bills being discussed in Washington should help prevent abuses throughout the veterans' health care system:

 

Baldwin is still working to hold people at Tomah accountable for the overuse of opioid medicines among vets at the hospital. She has been criticized for failing to investigate fast enough after hearing accusations of abuse at the local facility.

Fundraiser Abruptly Cancelled Following Questions

Written by

A big dollar political fundraiser scheduled for tonight in Madison, suddenly cancelled after serious ethical questions raised.

 

Jay Heck, from Wisconsin Common Cause, says the planned political fundraiser for republican state senator Roberta Darling was well beyond what should be considered acceptable from lawmakers. Darling co-chairs the very powerful Joint Finance Committee, which is in the last stages of putting the state's two year budget together. The fundraiser, cancelled just yesterday after word got out about lobbyists paying $500 a head to attend. Makes sense to Heck, who labeled the fundraiser "a special interest lobbyist shakedown." Heck says just scheduling the fundraiser shows politicians believe the lobbyist piggy bank is always open, no matter the ethical shortcomings of an event.
