That's A Ton Of Cheese Dude

Written by

CASHTON, Wis. (AP) An Illinois man accused of stealing 21 tons of Wisconsin cheese has been arrested in New Jersey. New Jersey authorities say the 34-year-old man from Plainfield, Ill., was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

Police Lt. Stephen Jones said Wednesday the man was driving a refrigerated truck carrying 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese. Jones says the cheese company, K&K Cheese in Cashton, Wis., valued the cargo at $200,000. New Jersey state patrol Detective Oliver Sissman says the suspect used false paperwork to obtain the cheese.

Company spokesman Kevin Everhart says K&K can't guarantee the cheese hasn't been tampered with so it didn't ask for the product back. Jones says if the cheese passes inspections by health authorities it will be donated to charity. The man was apparently going to sell the cheese on the East Coast black market.

Is Winona jumping the gun on trying to keep the frac sand industry in line?

Just two weeks after a sand mining moratorium expired in Winona, the city planning commission is talking about doing its own monitoring of air quality at mining sites. Assistant city planner Carlos Espinosa says a special study group may have to decide whether monitoring should be done by the state, instead of the city.  The Winona City Council may have the final decision on that proposal.  Espinosa tells us that Chippewa Falls already has a monitoring system in place, which has shown little air pollution because of sand mining.

Ona Gets Ready To Improve Gullikson Tennis Courts

Written by

Outdoor tennis courts all over the area will be busy soon, and a popular site in Onalaska is due for a fix-up...

Tuesday was the bidding deadline for contractors who want to remodel the Gullikson courts in Rowe Park. Onalaska city parks director Dan Wick says the demand for those courts is high.  Part of the proposed makeover would include better spectator seating in the hilly park. The nearly 20-year-old courts are named in honor of Onalaska's famous twin tennis pros, Tim and Tom Gullikson.

Vinehout Addresses Frac Sand Mining

Written by

Senator Kathleen Vinehout will release a 5-point plan today to improve property owners right to know regarding frac sand mines.

 

Vinehout's proposals will give adjacent property owners advance notice and the opportunity to be involved in local decisions. Mine owners will protect themselves by having more opportunity to interact with the community and address concerns from neighbors. She says local government will benefit by having a more transparent public process where the interests of all stakeholders are considered.

 

Vinehout introduces her bills today.
