Ron Paul In Badger State

Written by

(AP) Texas Rep. Ron Paul is scheduled to hold a town hall meeting on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison. Paul originally scheduled the event for Thursday night at the stock pavilion on campus, a venue that can hold thousands of people. But on Wednesday Paul changed the location to outside at the Memorial Union along the shores of Lake Mendota. Paul is fourth in delegates in the GOP primary battle. Forty two delegates are at stake in Wisconsin. A poll released Tuesday by the Marquette Law School showed Mitt Romney with 39 percent support of likely Republican voters in Wisconsin, with 31 percent for Rick Santorum. Paul had 11 percent while Newt Gingrich lagged at just 5 percent. A full 12 percent were undecided.

La Crosse County Business To Close

Written by

 

130 people will be out of work by August after a company near Brice Prairie closes. ATK Ammunition of Minnesota says most of its operations at Brice Prairie will shut down by the end of May. The nearly 50 year old plant makes gun cleaning products, targets, scope mounts, and replacement gun stocks. The closing comes less than a year after ATK added employees at Brice Prairie, when it brought back a product line from overseas.

ATK is based in Anoka, near Minnesota’s Twin Cities. It also plans to reduce operations at a plant in Fenton, Missouri.

A La Crosse business group says it supports the idea of hiring a city administrator.  The Chamber of Commerce hopes voters consider agreeing to adding a top administrator to city hall.  In a statement on Wednesday, the chamber says the value in having a professional city administrator is a higher level of efficiency.  The chamber also notes that the city has operated under the same form of government since the 1800's and things have become sufficiently complex to consider changing to a governmental form that includes a professional administrator.
