Westby School Referendum Fails

Written by

 

By a 115 vote margin, a three tiered $1.2 school referendum in Westby was voted down Tuesday. Superintendent, Chuck Norton told us after the vote that he was disappointed in the outcome and he and the school board will have to sit down to see what cuts will have to be made in 2013-14.

 

Norton says it's not an easy thing to do but they are used to it. In the past 9 years the district has had to cut almost $2.4 million from school budgets as well as reduce staff positions by 19. Another cost savings measure....they had to close a school in Chaseburg.

 

Norton says he's not sure yet, but the board may decide to hold another referendum in 2014.

Brown Deer Aftermath

Written by

BROWN DEER, Wis. (AP) An audit in the aftermath of a Brookfield spa shooting last fall that left four dead recommends that Brown Deer police increase their training in how they respond to domestic abuse calls. Radcliffe Haughton killed his estranged wife and two other women before killing himself Oct. 21 at the Azana Salon & Spa.

Brown Deer police had previously responded to domestic abuse problems between the couple, in some cases doing nothing. In one 2011 case officers thought they saw Radcliffe point a gun at his wife from a window at their home. But they eventually retreated because they said they couldn't confirm the object was a gun.

The audit recommends the police department institute more training in responding to domestic abuse calls, and retrain officers to write clearer police reports.

It was a frustrating day for those customers of Centurylink who had problems getting on the internet. Outages across the country effected one million customers in 21 states. Centurylink says the issues are finally resolved.

Customers, including those in Wisconsin and Minnesota, had their internet and phone systems interrupted for about nine hours. The outages started around 3:00 a.m. this morning and lasted until noon.

A statement from the company said the problem with an electronic routing system was to blame.

Ten million dollars in potential development might be hard to pass up...

That's the estimated value of homes being proposed for the vacant Park Plaza property owned by La Crosse County. The county administrator, Steve O'Malley, says both the county and the city will have to approve the new development.  O'Malley presented the 800-thousand dollar purchase offer to county supervisors last night. He considers the offer 'very positive,' partly because the prospective buyers are not asking for TIF money or other subsidies from local government.
