Onalaska Committee Hears Testimony On Prayer

Written by

The Onalaska judiciary and administration committee heard quite a bit of public comment last night on prayers before council meetings but in the end, voted to send the proposal without a recommendation to the full city council. The idea of prayer before council meetings was brought to light last month by Council member Jack Pogreba.

 

Committee members Diane Wulf and Erik Sjolander both said they could not back the idea but councilman, Dan Ferries said he would support the idea. All 3 said they could possibly consider a moment of silence or reflection before a city council meeting. No votes were taken last night and the committee, without recommendation, moved to pass it on to the full council and Mayor Joe Chilsen.

 

The Onalaska city council will consider the proposal at it's meeting next Tuesday night.

By the time this year's freshmen at UW-La Crosse are ready to graduate, they should see two more new buildings open on campus.

Construction of a student center is set to begin in just over a year, to be followed by an $80 million science hall. Assistant campus planner Scott Schumacher says the actual design phase will take a few more months.  The student union to open in 2015 would replace Cartwright Center, which opened over 50 years ago. The current Cowley science building dates back to the mid-60's.

The trial ended nine months ago, but the judge's ruling wasn't ready until today.

Chad Schroeder should learn this afternoon whether he'll be released from prison, or committed to a state hospital. Schroeder already has served about 20 years for forcing underage girls to have sex with him, while he was a teenager in Holmen. The state justice department requested a commitment trial, to determine if Schroeder might commit sex crimes again if he's sent out into the community. Judge Dale Pasell has been weighing a decision since the trial last May.
