New Ideas For Holmen Fire Funding May Be Considered

Written by

A three-way agreement for fire protection in one part of La Crosse County is still under dispute...

The town of Onalaska remains unsatisfied with a funding formula for the Holmen Fire District, requiring the town to split costs evenly with Holmen and the town of Holland. Holmen village president Nancy Proctor wants to see all three communities reach agreement, for the good of everyone.

 

The fire district board meets tomorrow night. Onalaska town leaders argue that they pay too much money into the system, compared to the number of fire calls they have.

No Clear Leader For Lax Mayor Race With Medinger Out

Written by

The race for mayor of La Crosse has become more of a toss-up, now that former mayor John Medinger is out of the running...

So says UWL political professor Joe Heim, who felt Medinger was clearly the leading candidate. Heim believes La Crosse voters want more experienced candidates...and that experience could come from outside the political arena.

 

Since Medinger ended his brief campaign, the field for mayor includes one current council member and a former councilman, along with mostly unknown candidates.

Montee Ball Attackers In Court

Written by

 

(AP) Two of the three men accused of attacking Wisconsin running back Montee Ball are scheduled for plea and sentencing hearings. Twenty-one-year-old Wendell J. Venerable and 22-year-old Robert A. Wilks are both due in court Wednesday afternoon. Each faces a single count of battery. The felony charge carries a maximum penalty of 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine.

All three are accused of attacking Ball in August as he walked behind two friends. They allegedly knocked him to the ground and kicked him in the head and chest. Ball was left unconscious and with a concussion. Ball has said he doesn't remember the attack and doesn't know why they jumped him. Messages left with their defense attorneys weren't immediately returned.

The third suspect is due in court next month.

Here Comes Your White Christmas

Written by

 

(AP) Forecasters say Tuesday's snowfall which caused numerous crashes and spinouts on Wisconsin roadways was only a small taste of what is about to hit the Badger State.

A winter storm moving across the country is tracking northeast and should hit Wisconsin Wednesday night. Meteorologists say the storm will include blizzard conditions. The heaviest snow is expected to arrive after midnight and continue throughout the day on Thursday. Wind gusts of up to 45 mph by Thursday afternoon should make travel treacherous.

The National Weather Service posted blizzard warnings for at least eight south central counties for Thursday afternoon. Forecasters say it could be the biggest snowstorm to hit the state since the Groundhog Day blizzard last year. That storm dumped 1 to 2 feet of snow in southeastern Wisconsin.

A Partisan Supreme Court

Written by

 

(AP) A candidate for Wisconsin Supreme Court who has already declared he is a Democrat is now calling on other candidates in the race, including a sitting justice, to state their political ideology. Milwaukee lemon law attorney Vince Megna issued the call on Wednesday, saying it is the only way for a fair and truthful election.

Races for the Supreme Court are officially nonpartisan, with candidates not affiliated on the ballot with any particular political party. However, in recent years conservatives and Republicans have tended to back one candidate while Democrats and liberals have lined up with another.

Megna is running against incumbent Justice Patience Roggensack, who has hired a former executive director of the state Republican Party to run her campaign. Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone is also running.
