Mutual aid agreement to benefit all of La Crosse County

03 September 2015

Good things can happen when people, and communities, work together. That's why there is much excitement about a new mutual aid agreement being developed among fire departments in La Crosse...

This hasn't happened in 600 years...a pope voluntarily giving up his job.

But Pope Benedict is doing just that, saying declining health has led him to resign. La Crosse Bishop William Callahan says he certainly didn't expect to hear the resignation announcement today, and wonders why the pope is choosing to make this move now.  Callahan does not think that Benedict will try to endorse a successor...arguing that the pope is beyond the age where he would be allowed to participate in the selection process.  Some church-watchers have mentioned former La Crosse Bishop Raymond Burke, who is now a cardinal, as a potential choice for pope.

Iowa Wants Stronger Math Results

Written by

(AP) Gov. Terry Branstad wants Iowa to be in the top 10 states for student standardized reading and math scores by 2019. Branstad laid out the goal during a news conference Monday, as he continued to push lawmakers to approve his $187 million education reform plan.

Arguing that the state needs ``world class schools,'' Branstad noted Iowa now ranks 25th in the nation for eighth grade math and 29th for fourth grade reading. He said he wants to get those scores into the top 10 by boosting minimum teacher salaries and pay incentives to senior teachers who take on tasks like mentoring.

Lawmakers are reviewing Branstad's proposal, but there has been some conflict with Democratic legislators who want to first set a general level of school funding.

Supreme Court Candidates

Written by

(AP) Candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court and state superintendent of schools are required to file their latest campaign spending reports showing activity through Feb. 4. The reports due Monday are the last showing how much candidates have raised and spent before the Feb. 19 primary election.

Three candidates are running for Supreme Court and one of them will be eliminated in the primary. Those running are incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack, Milwaukee attorney Vince Megna and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone.
Roggensack launched the first ad of the campaign last week, touting her experience with nearly 17 years as a judge.

In the race for Department of Public Instruction secretary, incumbent Tony Evers faces challenger Republican state Rep. Don Pridemore. There is no primary in that race.

Snow Slams Minnesota

Written by

(AP) Western Minnesota is hit hardest by a storm that dumped a foot of snow in the region and stranded motorists. Several highways in the area are closed, including Interstate 94 from Alexandria to Moorhead, and Highways 10 210. Sheriff's deputies in Grant and Douglas counties assisted drivers who became stranded.

The National Weather Service says Glenwood in Pope County got 12 inches of snow Sunday. Walker has about 11 inches and Hillman has 10 inches. The Minnesota Department of Transportation reported early Monday that most roadways in the state present difficult driving conditions.

The State Patrol handled 326 crashes since Sunday morning, including 42 that involved injuries.

Windy conditions Monday could make the morning commute in the Twin Cities more challenging.
