Vikings Against The Ropes With NFL

Written by

NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell and Pittsburg Steelers President Art Rooney, were in Minnesota Friday with one goal in mind.........get a new Vikings stadium bill passed...and do it now.

The pair met with Governor Mark Dayton and a handlful of lawmakers in the capitol. Goodell said he made no implied threats but in reality he didn't need to. The NFL head said that the team and league are giving the state another 10 or so days of exclusivity before opening the door to relocation alternatives.

Is State Safer With Concealed Carry

Written by
(AP) Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he doesn't know whether Wisconsin is any more or less safe now that 100,000 permits have been issued allowing people to carry concealed weapons. But Van Hollen said Friday that no problems have been reported since the law went into effect six months ago and if it deters crime, that's an added benefit. Van Hollen spoke inside the Department of Justice room where the permits are printed. Van Hollen holds the first permit issued by the state, but he says it's not known yet who will be issued the 100,000th on Friday. Van Hollen says the demand for permits has been strong. The agency anticipated 125,000 would be issued in the first year but it's nearly reached that after just six months.

Van Hollen Worried About Voter ID

Written by
(AP) Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says he is very concerned about voter fraud as six recall elections near, including one targeting fellow Republican, Gov. Scott Walker. Van Hollen was asked about fraud concerns Friday given that the state's law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls has been blocked by two Dane County judges. The state Supreme Court on Monday refused to take up the case, making it unlikely that the law will be reinstated before the May 8 primary or June 5 general election. Van Hollen says voter fraud is always a risk and he has no reason to believe it's any less of a concern in the recalls. He says his office is moving forward with appeals of the lawsuits as quickly as possible.

(AP) Planned Parenthood plans to end nonsurgical abortions at its Wisconsin clinics. The organization's leaders say Planned Parenthood will continue to provide surgical abortions at its clinics in Madison, Milwaukee and the Appleton area. Planned Parenthood CEO Teri Huyck says the agency is suspending medication-induced abortions beginning Friday because of a new state law that subjects doctors who perform abortions to criminal penalties. The new law mandates that women having nonsurgical abortions visit the same doctor three times and that doctors ensure the woman is having the procedure voluntarily and without coercion. Huyck says the law sets unprecedented barriers for women seeking medication abortions. Planned Parenthood says about 25 percent of women who terminated pregnancies use the pill-induced abortion which requires a woman to take two drugs within the first nine weeks of pregnancy.

West Salem Approves Employee Handbooks

Written by

Last week, the West Salem School Board formally approved an employee handbook for the 2012-2013 school year. The 62-page document replaces the agreements that were in place until last year when the the state Legislature voted to curtail most public workers’ collective bargaining rights. Something totally new for Superintendent, Troy Gunderson.

Gunderson says in the coming months they will be setting things up in a more professional manner, but it’s going to take some hard work from everybody.

NFL Big Guns Talk Vikings Stadium

Written by

Seems as though the NFL is leaning on the State of Minnesota to get a new stadium bill passed....and now. Joining Governor Mark Dayton this morning was NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Pittsburgh Steelers Owner, Art Rooney, who is also on the NFL's Stadium Board.

Rooney says they did not threaten the Vikings to get a stadium bill passed.....just an indicator from the NFL that a combined solution has to be made.....and soon.

New Fee to Fund Airport Upgrades

Written by
It will cost you an extra few bucks to fly out of La Crosse in the near future.   The city plans to start collecting four and a half bucks extra fee per passenger starting in January 2016.  The plan is to use the money to do upgrades to the airport terminal and to the radio system, to buy a new backup generator and a snow removal truck.  The per-passenger charge is scheduled to be collected for six years and is expected to generate about 2.8 million dollars.  The city's taking public comment on the fee until mid May.
