(AP) Presidential race campaigning is heating up in Wisconsin before the April 3 primary. On Saturday, front-runner Mitt Romney, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich are all scheduled to speak at an event organized by the Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Coalition in Waukesha. Gingrich and his wife Callista are scheduled to be at a Marquette University rally on Thursday night. On Friday afternoon they are slated to be at Kroll's West restaurant in Green Bay. Candidate Ron Paul has scheduled a town hall meeting Thursday night on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison. Santorum was the first of the candidates to travel to Wisconsin, spending all weekend in the state. He has more events planned Tuesday in Beaver Dam and Janesville.
(AP) Wisconsin revenue officials say about 80 percent of state taxpayers file electronically. A decade ago that was just 25 percent. Revenue Secretary Richard Chandler says e-filing has eliminated a big crunch of returns at the filing deadline. Chandler says the state expects about 3 million returns. And, the average refund is $680.
About half of Wisconsin taxpayers have filed state returns with about a month to go before the April 17th deadline, which falls on a Tuesday this year. The 15th is on a Sunday and the 16th is Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington D.C. The Department of Revenue offers a free e-file program at revenue.wi.gov.
Bill Feehan handed over the reins of the La Crosse County GOP to Vice Chairman Julian Bradley at the party's Lincoln Day Dinner Friday night. Feehan had previously announced his plans to step down as chairman to focus
on his run for the 32nd state Senate district. Bradley was a candidate for the 95th Assembly district in 2010 and has served as vice chair since February 2011. Feehan handed over the chairmanship at the finale of the party's annual Lincoln Day Dinner. This was the largest attendance of a Lincoln Day Dinner in the party's history and the first time a sitting governor has spoken at the event since then governor Thompson spoke in La Crosse in 1995.
This idea about transferring city marshland to the DNR has gotten complicated. La Crosse will apparently work towards fulfilling a promise that's more than a decade old to transfer the city's marsh to the state agency. But that involves studying the deeds for 87 individual parcels of land. Some of which might not get transferred at all, says city engineer Randy Turtenwald
The city's public works board today will vote on whether to ask the city council for thousands of dollars to research the title history for the plots of land in the marsh.
You may have already seen your last Maple Leaf parade in La Crosse. The Oktoberfest board meets today to consider the future of its parades after city hall refused to negotiate last week on new parade fees. Losing the giant Maple Leaf parade would hurt, says Oktoberfest executive director Tina Severson. But maybe more the city than the Oktoberfest organization itself
The city wants 18 thousand dollars in new fees from Oktoberfest to run its parade this year. Severson expects that amount to balloon to over forty thousand dollars next year.
Have you started swatting at mosquitoes yet this year?
Some people have started seeing the little pests around La Crosse, because of the premature beginning to spring. La Crosse County's chief mosquito watcher, Dave Geske, says the winter weather didn't do much to decrease the numbers of insects.
Mosquito experts generally predict that because we won't get much flooding this spring, the local mosquito population is likely to be low.
Tomah Police say a shooting that took place this weekend was not random. Police responded to a report of a shooting that happened on the city walking trail south of Parkview Drive a little after 10pm Saturday night.
Officers found 21 year old Holten Mayberry, who said he had walked to the entrance of the trail near Parkview Drive. Mayberry told police that he was walking on the trail near the railroad bridge when two unknown males confronted him and one of the suspects shot him in the shoulder. Mayberry was transported to Tomah Memorial Hospital where he was treated and later transferred to a La Crosse Hospital with non life threatening injuries.
Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Tomah Police. Police do not have anyone in custody and say it was an isolated incident.
Two La Crosse police officers are pleading guilty to federal charges of violating hunting laws...
Officers Corrie Korn and Faling Yang will be sentenced in May, and both could face prison time. The U-S Attorney's office says the two cops illegally killed and transported ducks while operating their own hunting guide service three years ago. The charges resulted from testimony by undercover agents who went hunting with the officers. As part of their pleas, Korn and Yang have agreed not to act as hunting guides...or to hunt anywhere in the U-S...for the next two years.
This year's fees for Oktoberfest won't be the end. The organization got nowhere in negotiations with La Crosse city hall yesterday in efforts to reduce parade fees from the 18 thousand dollars the city wants for this year. And next year, it would be much more, says fest executive director, Tina Severson
The Oktoberfest board meets on Monday to decide what to do next. A real possibility: Cancelling the fest's three parades.
