Why is it hard to sometimes find parking spaces in downtown La Crosse?

A big reason could be that people who might otherwise ride buses are driving cars instead. But MTU boss Keith Carlson is always trying to attract more riders.  There has been talk of buses making stops every 15 minutes, instead of each half-hour. This Wednesday, Carlson and MTU board members meet with the La Crosse parking utility board to work on ways to meet their mutual needs.

Big Time Ginseng Agreement

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The Ginseng Board of Wisconsin has signed a 10-year, $200 million deal with one of China's largest medicine companies. Under the agreement, Tong Ren Tang Health Pharmaceutical, a 364-year-old Chinese pharmacy, will pay the board for trademark seals indicating the company is selling genuine Wisconsin ginseng at its 1,800 retail stores in China. The company's partnership with the state ginseng board started in 2009.

Gov. Scott Walker announced the agreement on Monday in the capital city of Beijing. He is leading a state trade mission in the country in hopes of bringing more of Wisconsin's exports to the world's second largest economy.

Walker will visit Beijing, Tianjin, Harbin and Shanghai during the 10-day trip.

School Vouchers Cost

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A new report shows that supporters of the private school voucher program have spent $10 million over the past decade driving their agenda in Wisconsin.

The report released Monday by the government watchdog group the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign says $5 million of that spending happened in the last election cycle.

Gov. Scott Walker got about half of that during his successful defeat of a recall effort in June.

Walker this year is proposing expanding the program beyond Milwaukee and Racine and increasing funding to raise the amount of the individual vouchers families receive to send their children to private school.

The report says spending by voucher supporters included about $7 million for outside electioneering activities, like negative mailings and television ads. About $2.8 million went toward individual campaign contributions.
