Mascot Issue Marches On

Written by

 

(AP) Parents of students in a southeastern Wisconsin school district have asked the state Supreme Court to decide whether the state schools superintendent can legally order schools to drop American Indian mascots.

James R. Schoolcraft and Craig Vertz sued after the state Department of Public Instruction ordered the Mukwonago Area School District to drop its Indians nickname and logo. A circuit court judge blocked the DPI's order but the 2nd District Court of Appeals upheld it last month, ruling Schoolcraft and Vertz had no legal standing to sue.

The men's attorney, Samuel Hall, asked the Supreme Court on Friday to take the case. He argues state statutes that allow DPI to order schools to drop tribal nicknames are unconstitutional.

Dont Talk Trash About The DOC

Written by

 

(AP) Wisconsin Corrections Secretary Ed Wall is warning employees of his department they could lose their job if they spread what he calls ``false or malicious information'' about the agency. An email provided to The Associated Press by a Corrections employee and confirmed as authentic by the department shows Wall sent the message on Monday.

Wall writes he is disturbed about rumors floating around the 10,000-employee agency that it may be opening a new prison or privatizing operations. He says those rumors are baseless and says ``people who are involved in spreading that rumor should stop immediately.''

He says doing so is a workplace violation that will be ``strictly enforced.''

Wall adds, ``Improper use of email causes problems and has cost people their jobs. Please don't be one of them.''

Walker Still Has Cash

Written by

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker raised nearly $474,000 in the six months after he won his recall election in 2012.

Walker reported Thursday that he raised that much between July 1 and the end of the year. While significant, it pales in comparison to the $29.5 million he raised in the first half of the year as the June recall election loomed. Walker entered this year with nearly $794,000 cash on hand.

Even though the recall is behind him, Walker faces his regularly scheduled re-election campaign in less than two years. He will enter that race with a significant cash advantage over whichever Democratic candidate emerges.

Walker made his summary page available late Thursday. His full report showing individual contributions was not immediately available on the state elections board website.

4 Teens Injured After Driving Into Cranberry Marsh

Written by

Four teenagers are injured after plunging their car into a cranberry marsh. The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says the crash happened just before 5 p.m. last night. Deputies say the teens were driving on a private cranberry marsh looking for a fishing hole, and did not realize the trail had turned, when they hit a deep ditch.

One passenger, 17 year old Victor Pennington of Tomah, has been transferred to a La Crosse hospital with critical injuries. Naomi Hatfield of Tomah, Brandon Gebhardt of Warrens, and Ashley Tanner of Oakdale, all 17, are hospitalized at Tomah Memorial Hospital for their injuries.

None of the passengers were wearing seatbelts.

Man Wanted By Police Finally Found

Written by

A man is behind bars after police say he illegally took his two year old son nearly four months ago. Altoona police say they found and arrested 35 year old Kevin Tadder last night in Altoona. Police say the toddler was found unharmed.

Police say Tadder took his son in September after a court ordered him not to have custody.

Altoona police worked with the Juneau County Sheriff's Office and Mauston Police Department to find Tadder who had multiple warrants.

Minnesota may be helping Wisconsin attract more jobs, according to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

Not that the Gopher State is trying to help its neighbor...but Walker says, Minnesota policies should make Wisconsin more appealing to businesses, because that state's governor plans to raise taxes.

 

Speaking to reporters in La Crosse yesterday, the governor said again that his upcoming budget bill will include tax cuts to stimulate job growth.  Walker brought new Economic Development director Reed Hall with him to La Crosse, to meet Mayor Matt Harter and business leaders.
