Want Some Packer Stock Eh!

Written by

(AP) Canadians who want to buy a share of Green Bay Packers stock will now get their chance. The team said Monday it has cleared Canadian regulatory requirements and is now selling shares north of the border. Each share costs $250. In the U.S., there's also a $25 handling fee. In Canada, the charge is $35. The team had offered 280,000 shares for sale. It says it had 17,000 left as of Feb. 14, and the sale will end Feb. 29 unless the team sells out first. The money is being used to fund stadium expansion. The shares pay no dividends and have virtually no re-sale value. But they do come with a piece of paper declaring holders a team owner and conferring the right to attend the annual stockholder meeting.

Stranger Helps Himself to Beer

Written by

There's making yourself at home and then there's what Thomas Sullivan did this week-end.  La Crosse police say a guy on the southside found Sullivan sitting on his couch at about bartime Saturday morning.  Guy doesn't know Sullivan, but there he was.  Sitting.  Laughing.  Drinking a beer from the fridge.  And then Sullivan gut surly with cops when they showed up.  They said the highly inebriated 42 year-old acted as if he'd done nothing wrong.  He faces a couple of charges.  Including one for resisting arrest.

Not that long ago, the state capitol in Madison was tossed into turmoil after the so-called caucus scandal.  Then, it was legislative staffers doing campaign work on state time.  Eerily similar, says Jay Heck with Wisconsin Common Cause, to the scandal that's erupted with several of governor Walker's former aides getting charged with various crimes

 

 

Heck says, for the governor to remove any suspicion that he's hiding something regarding his former staffers, Walker needs to come clean about everything during an upcoming meeting with the Milwaukee county DA.

Sparta Shooting Victim In Court Today At 1:00

Written by

A man who aimed a rifle at a Sparta Police Officer last month will make his first court appearance today at 1pm. 19 year old Jacob Olsen of Sparta was booked into the Monroe County Jail Friday after he was released from Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse. Olson was recovering from gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen.

 

He was shot by Officer Booker Ferguson, who had responded to a 911 hang up call. After several attempts to get Olsen to the put the rifle down the night of January 19th, Booker fired at the teen. Booker had been on administrative leave since the shooting, as standard procedure, but came off of the leave last week.

 

Olsen will face a bond hearing today on charges of 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety and pointing a firearm at a law officer. He could face additional charges if D.A. Dan Cary sees fit. Cary is waiting for a Department of Justice investigation of the shooting. He will then decide what charges would be filed.

Your Getting Married Where!

Written by

(AP) It's the ultimate winter wedding. Bride-to-be Jennifer Truex explains that she will wed her fiance Dan Petrie on the ice of Gull Lake Saturday because they're ``outdoorsy people.'' Truex says even Petrie's proposal was a bit out of the box. The two were four-wheeling in the woods last fall and ``waist deep in mud'' when Petrie proposed. Truex says she didn't hesitate to say `yes'. Saturday's forecast in Brainerd calls for temperatures in the mid-30s. Truex tells the Brainerd Dispatch that she's reminded guests to buddle up because the reception will be on the ice as well. There will be ice fishing before and after the ceremony and minnows and fishing poles will decorate the tables. And for their guests from Arizona and Texas, the couple will have a heated tent.

Mining Hearings Underway In Madison

Written by

(AP) Dozens of people have jammed a hearing on a bill to jumpstart an iron mine in northwestern Wisconsin.  Gogebic Taconite wants to mine just south of Lake Superior. Company officials want lawmakers to guarantee a stopping point in the state's open-ended permit process before they move forward, though.  Assembly Republicans have passed a measure that would require a permitting decision within a year, eliminate contested case hearings and cap application fees at $2 million. It now goes to the state Senate. The Legislature's budget committee opened a public hearing on the measure Friday morning. Rep. Robin Vos, the committee's co-chairman, says he wants finish by 5 p.m. Sen. Pam Galloway is sponsoring the Assembly bill in the Senate. She told the committee the mine would be an economic boom.

Walker Asks For More Time

Written by

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker's campaign is set to argue in court for a two-week extension in the time it has to review an estimated 1 million signatures on recall petitions. Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess scheduled a hearing for Friday. Walker's campaign says the ordering of any election would not be substantively delayed by its request. But Democrats say it is a ``virtual certainty'' that if approved any recall election would be delayed. Niess already has granted Walker 30 days to review the petitions. If Walker is given another two weeks, his deadline for filing challenges would be pushed from Feb. 27 to March 12. It takes 540,208 signatures to trigger a recall election. Petition circulators say they turned in about 1 million.

Johnson Shows Support For Walker

Written by

Senator Ron Johnson says he has stuck by Governor Scott Walker and his decision's from last year...and will continue to do so. He says if you look at the fiscal mess the state was in...he can fully relate with what the national budget looks like now.

Johnson says he wished sometimes it was as easy to do what Walker did with Wisconsin's budget.......compared to what it takes to agree on a national budget.
