From Dynamic Recycling in La Crosse, Kurt Greeno says a law keeping E-waste out of landfills is part of the reason for the rapid growth of his business. Also the state requirement of manufacturers to pay for recycling of the stuff they sell in the state. He says that last part means Dynamic gets revenue from nearly everything they recycle. The exceptions: CRT glass from old TV's and monitors. A loss leader, but still making companies like his profitable and looking for workers.
Joe Beran's trying to remain as positive as possible.
But the La Crosse Central High Activities director says it's tough to feel great about the amount of spring sports events he's having to reschedule because of rain. And, of course, the winter storm this week. Logan High Activities Director, Steve Hole agrees that re-scheduling is a struggle that takes some doing to overcome. Hole and Beran agree that Tennis and it's need for completely dry courts is the toughest spring sport to find relatively arid days in which to replay postponed matches.
Three people were dumped in a pond yesterday...by a snowplow.
Just before noon Tuesday, 38 year old Melody Cox of Prairie Du Chien was driving on Highway 35 near Stoddard when she passed a snowplow clearing the roads. As she passed the plow.....it threw snow on her windshield causing her not to be able to see where she was going. Her car spun out of control and ended up in a pond.
Cox and two other passengers were pulled form the freezing water by Vernon County deputies. All 3 were taken to Gunderson Lutheran in Lacrosse with non-life threatening injuries.
Dan Kapanke's getting back in the saddle. The Republican state senator has scheduled a state budget listening session in Holmen tomorrow. This comes just weeks after Kapanke canceled other listening sessions, after receiving death threats and being the victim of vandals--all associated with the collective bargaining bill that remains tied up in court. The Holmen session will run from 4:30 to 6:00 in the Holmen Village Community room. Kapanke faces a recall election sometime this summer although the senator is challenging the validity of the recall petition filed with the state.
