Charges made against the La Crosse county administrator will get a public hearing this summer...

No date has been set, but the county ethics board has agreed to hear arguments that Steve O'Malley illegally used his position of power to promote the city administrator referendum defeated last month in La Crosse. O'Malley believes his activities aimed at getting La Crosse voters to support the position of administrator were proper. Ethics board chairman Rick Kyte says it's possible that just one hearing will be needed to decide whether O'Malley broke any laws.

The Rush Is On

Over 90 thousand absentee ballots have been issued for the upcoming June 5th recall election......not surprising to UW-L Professor, Joe Heim. He says you can guage the ever growing interest by going back to the May 8th primary.

Some area clerks are now saying they expect around 80% voter turnout come the 5th and they are expecting a rush to vote absentee next week as well.

Big Names Help Lax Center Make Big Bucks

Written by

That big arena on 2nd Street has been pretty busy lately...with attractions like a 'Megadeth' concert, a big dart tournament, and the World's Largest Office Party.

The policy of the La Crosse Center is to fill the building frequently during the first half of the year, because business slows down significantly in the summer. Manager Art Fahey says the 2011 surplus of 281-thousand dollars didn't all come from concerts and parties, but often from conventions.

For the first four months of this year, the surplus is 194-thousand dollars. Compare that to the total for all of 2010, which was just under 80-thousand dollars.

They were hoping just to beat last year's goal...but came out about 25 per cent over the mark.

Organizers of the Letter Carriers' Food Drive in the La Crosse area collected 125-thousand pounds of food on May 12th. That compares to 100-thousand pounds collected a year ago. Kyle Brown from the Great Rivers United Way says donations collected at drop-off sites in La Crosse and Onalaska will go to charities within those communities.  The letter carriers' food campaign has been conducted every May for 20 years.

O'Malley Critics Want E-Mails Investigated

Written by

How serious are the charges of ethics violations against La Crosse County Administrator Steve O'Malley?

Serious enough, perhaps, to cost O'Malley his job, according to Mike Tellier of the La Crosse Watchdog organization.

 

Tellier and other critics accuse O'Malley of breaking the law by using county e-mails to promote the city administrator idea in La Crosse, or to speak out against Governor Scott Walker. The county ethics board will review some of O'Malley's activities during a meeting tomorrow.

Mortgage Borrowing Hot While Other Borrowing Not

Written by

Borrowing for homes?  Pretty good market for that.   Borrowing for cars? Boats? Any other big purchase?  Not so hot, says Wayne Oliver at State Bank Financial in La Crosse.  He sees a very conservative public not much willing to take chances on big ticket items after a frightening recession that ended three years ago.  Doesn't mean they're worried about the current economy.....

 

 

Oliver says conservative spending is probably healthier for the individual, but makes for sluggish economic growth.
