Kohl Suports Barrett

Written by
(AP) Retiring U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl is supporting Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the Democratic recall election primary. Many Democrats wanted Kohl to run against Republican Gov. Scott Walker, but he stayed on the sidelines. Kohl said in a statement Wednesday that he doesn't normally endorse in a primary, but he is this time because this is no ordinary election. The endorsement comes on the heels of the AFL-CIO announcing it was backing Barrett's Democratic challenger Kathleen Falk. Every union that has endorsed so far has backed Falk. The campaign is on hyper drive with the May 8 Democratic primary is less than four weeks away. The general election, where Walker will face whoever emerges from the Democratic primary, is June 5.

Earlier today, the NCAA Committee on Infractions released a report finding that the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse’s intercollegiate athletics program has committed three major violations related to the school’s financial aid practices. The NCAA found the violations began at least as early as the 2007-08 academic year, with evidence that the prohibited practices have been ongoing for 20 years or more.

 

In the period studied, the NCAA found no evidence to suggest that UW-L’s student-athletes improperly received financial aid or that members of UW-L’s athletics or campus staff acted intentionally to violate NCAA rules. Rather, the University’s procedures for awarding financial aid allowed for consideration of athletics leadership, participation, or performance and permitted service of athletics staff members on scholarship selection committees, neither of which is permissible under NCAA legislation.

 

As a result of these violations, the Committee on Infractions has assessed the university with both punitive actions and corrective measures. For the next two years, UW-L will be on probation, during which time it must institute a variety of educational programs for campus staff, inform prospective student-athletes of the program’s probationary status, and submit regular compliance reports to the NCAA.  UW-L Chancellor, Dr. Joe Gow said while the NCAA concluded that no one at UW-L intentionally violated NCAA policies, they agree that they must do a better job of eliminating any possibility that student athletic participation could become associated with any of their scholarships and the processes used for awarding them.

Overwhelming Vote For New UWL Student Center

Written by

It's a landslide vote...students at U-W-La Crosse want a new student center.

In a campus referendum on Tuesday, nearly 18-hundred out of two thousand students casting votes approved a plan to replace the aging Cartwright Center. Student center director Larry Ringgenberg says decades worth of sodas and beers served at Cartwright have taken a toll on the plumbing...plus, there are heating and cooling issues, and general deterioration of the building. If the state okays the building plans, a new student union could open near the football stadium as soon as 2016.

Republicans Talking Unity

Written by

It's over?  Rick Santorum has dropped out of the republican presidential primary race.  But there's still delegates to be had out there.  Time for the party to talk unity says La Crosse county republican party chair, Julian Bradley

 

 

Santorum's announcement that he was leaving the race comes just a week after losing in Wisconsin's primary.  He did however, carry La Crosse county quite handily.

It's certainly not the first time a downtown La Crosse business has had a window broken. But one of the first times police have rounded up a video of the perp who did it.  La Crosse police are looking for the guy that appears in a video that they've posted on the city website and on the police Facebook page. They need help identifying the guy. They say he punched out the window at Three Rivers Outdoors. Someone recorded it on their phone and handed the video over to the police.

No Means No, On City Administrator Issue

Written by

Just say the words, "city administrator" in La Crosse from now on and someone's going to have something to say about it. Like last night. Tea Party activist Greg Luce  noted that the city council was to vote on leftover business having to do with the city administrator idea. Luce says he hopes the council--especially council member and strong proponent of the administrator idea--Dick Swantz understands what 'no' means.

 

At the polls last week, La Crosse voters handily turned down the proposal to hire an administrator to run the day-to-day operations of city hall.
