Democratic Lawmakers Out of Loop on Mining Bill

Written by

A vote expected this week in Madison on a pro-business mining bill that could have far-reaching impacts throughout the state of Wisconsin.  The bill is meant to help locate an iron ore mine locate in northern Wisconsin.  Maybe.  Kind of hard to say from the minority democrat side of the aisle, says Onalaska state rep, Steve Doyle

 

 

Critics worry that the mining bill could restrict public input on any new mine in the state.

Harter Mum on Pay Cut Proposal

Written by

There might be several referendum questions facing La Crosse voters when they go to the polls in April.  Depends on whether the city council overrides mayor Matt Harter's vetoes of three advisory measures.  One referendum for sure; a binding one on whether the city should have a city administrator.  The council votes next month on cutting the mayor's salary in half if that gets approved.  Harter says he'd rather not comment on the salary issue

 

 

Advisory referendum questions vetoed by the mayor involve billboards and city council size.

7 Hour Standoff Ends Peacefully

Written by

A Missouri man is in the Monroe County jail after keeping police at bay for 7 hours Sunday morning at a Tomah Motel. 22 year old Kenneth Roark was reportedly in the Super 8 Motel around 2:30am, intoxicated and had a hand gun. After officers confonted him in a hallway......he ran off back into his room.

 

Several police agencies set up a perimeter around the motel......cleared out 15 rooms on the first floor.....and in the end, flushed him out of the room using chemical agents. Tomah Police Cheif Wes Revels told WIZM's Dan Deicher that the people staying in the rooms that were cleared out were performing work at a local sand mine with Roark.

 

Roark is being held on suspicion of endangering safety while intoxicated with a firearm, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon. He will make a court appearance Monday morning.

Wisconsin Tobacco Report Has Some Good And Some Bad

Written by

2 A's and 2 F's..........that's what you will find in the latest Wisconsin tobacco report card published by the American Lung Association. One reason there are a couple of F's........funding cuts for tobacco programs....are at 75% this year.

Judi Zabel, Co-coordinator for the 7 C’s Health Initiative in the La Crosse area says the enormity of the challenge facing them requires combined resources at both the state and federal levels. Something she's crossing her fingers for real soon.

New DMV Centers Open MOnday

Written by

Starting today, three more Wisconsin communities will have state motor vehicle service centers. They’ll be located at Alma in Buffalo County, Viroqua in Vernon County, and a location in Menominee County.

The new state budget requires all 72 counties to have at least one DMV service center. The main purpose is to make it easier for people to get photo I-D’s, so they can use them to vote under the state’s new identification
law at the polls.

The agency is also expanding service in most of its centers around the state to at least 20 hours per week. That requirement is also in the state budget.

La Crosse Busy With Accidents

Written by

Since 6 am today, emergency personnel have responded to at least 20 motorist assists (mostly slide-offs), 28 collisions, and 4 car crashes with injuries. One collision involved a vehicle striking a snow plow and another collision involved a vehicle rear-ending a city bus.


A typical day during good summer weather has about 5- 10 collisions during a 24-hour period and just a few motorist assist calls. It is uncertain how many of today's incidents are weather-related.

The snow is tapering off, but the afternoon rush-hour is just beginning.

A decision reached today on when a La Crosse city council meeting will be held to overturn Mayor Matt Harter's latest vetoes.  On Tuesday the council will go for the override on Harter's vetoes of three advisory referendum questions, a move which would keep them from the spring ballot. The council has to overturn by Tuesday in order to get those questions on the ballot. The referendum questions involve billboards and city council size. Among other reasons, Harter says he vetoed the referendum questions because voters have enough to consider with a binding referendum on a city administrator already at the polls.
