Is La Crosse's mayor happy that his four-year term is just about over?

 

Mayor Matt Harter tells WIZM's Mike Hayes that he'll be happy to "move on to new things" when his term expires next month.  Harter says the city has cut taxes all four years, while maintaining a high level of government services. Harter says that was accomplished by people working together, although he and the city council have disagreed on several issues. The mayor announced last fall that he would not run in next Tuesday's election. He says his most memorable moment as mayor was the night he took the oath of office in 2009.

New Food For Twins Games

Written by

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Goat will be on the menu at Target Field when the Minnesota Twins open the 2013 season, and it's not the kind of goat that blows a game.

The new food vendors include AZ Canteen, a venture of Minnesota celebrity chef Andren Zimmern, host of the Travel Channel's ``Bizarre Foods.'' His stand will serve up a goat-and-lamb burger and other nontraditional ballpark dishes like griddled veal tongue and green papaya salad with pork belly. Zimmern debuted his goat burgers at the Minnesota State Fair last summer.

Other new vendors include Mac's Fish and Chips of St. Paul, Sheboygan Sausage of Alexandria, Panino's Baked Sandwiches of North Oaks, and some healthy food options too.

Cut from the opening day roster were the walleye on a stick and the turkey leg.

Trails Could Stay Open Longer

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) With a foot or more of snow still blanketing most of northern Minnesota, the snowmobiling season may extend into April for the first time in many years.

The Department of Natural Resources says state trails will remain open on public land while weather and snow conditions permit. But grant-in-aid snowmobile trails will close for the season on April 1, when permits with private landowners expire.

The DNR says late-season snowmobilers need to be aware of changing conditions, including bare spots, flowing water and exposed rocks. Some gates may be closed on grant-in-aid trails.

Even if snow conditions are good, the DNR reminds snowmobilers not to ride on trails that traverse private land. After April 1, riding these trails without the landowner's permission would be trespassing.
