Chief Kielman says crews will be on scene for several more hours making sure of no flair ups.

 

Marathon County Solid Waste Department Director Meleesa Johnson says No cause will be determined speculation is Hot Coals from the grill or Cell Phone Batteries, Johnson says just because your phone battery is not able to power your cell phones but “JUICE” is still enough to get HOT from the sun and start a fire. Johnson has her crews spreading trash away as fire fighters spray the area down with water. Johnson says no equipment was damaged. Lastly Johnson wants to Thank Everyone Who called into report the smoke because with out them it could have been a lot worse not only to the landfill but the neighboring area.

Governor Walker Signs Bill to Crack Down on Repeat Drunk Drivers

Madison – Governor Scott Walker signed a bill into law making the 4th drunk driving offense a felony regardless of when it was committed and increasing penalties for repeat drunk drivers. Senate Bill 455, now Act 371, was authored by Senator Alberta Darling (R – River Hills) and Representative Jim Ott (R – Mequon).

“This law is being signed to honor the lives of Jennifer, Courtney, and Sophia,” Governor Walker said. “Eight years ago today, the lives of their families changed forever when a repeat drunk driver decided to get behind the wheel.”

More than 200 people are killed each year on Wisconsin’s roads and, prior to 1990’s, operating while intoxicated (OWI) convictions were based on the number of times the offender had been convicted in the five year period preceding arrest. The new law eliminates the 4th offense look back period and increases penalties for repeat drunk driving offenders.

“Penalties in Wisconsin for repeat drunk drivers are less severe than neighboring states,” added Governor Walker. “It is time to match the severity of our penalties to this crime, regardless of when it occurs.”

A photo from the bill signing is attached.

Governor Walker Signs Seven Bills into Law

Madison – Governor Scott Walker signed seven bills into law at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison today.

Senate Bill 455, now Act 371, increases penalties for drunk driving offenses and aligns state law with surrounding states in how multiple offenders are penalized. The bill was authored by Senator Alberta Darling (R – River Hills) and Representative Jim Ott (R – Mequon).

Assembly Bill 624, now Act 372, allows alcohol retailers to retain invoices in electronic format rather than paper and eliminates the local referendum option for the elimination of all alcohol licensing. The bill was authored by Representative David Steffen (R – Green Bay) and Senator Luther Olsen (R – Ripon).

Senate Bill 387, now Act 373, provides clear statutory guidance to prevent confusion and aid in finding children a good, permanent home by establishing and clarifying procedures for changing the placement of a child or juvenile who is involved in the juvenile court system. The bill was authored by Senator Alberta Darling (R – River Hills) and Representative Joan Ballweg (R – Markesan).

Senate Bill 533, now Act 374, regulates the production and use of photo identification cards by local units of government to protect taxpayers and the integrity of elections. The bill was authored by Senator Van Wanggard (R – Racine) and Representative Joe Sanfelippo (R – New Berlin).

Assembly Bill 549, now Act 375, makes it more convenient for physical therapy patients to obtain a needed x-ray by allowing physical therapists who fulfill certain criteria to order x-rays.  Rather than being referred to another healthcare provider, physical therapists will be able to order an x-ray for the physical therapy patient, thus providing more prompt treatment and reducing costs to the patient. The bill was authored by Representative Joe Sanfelippo (R – New Berlin) and Senator Van Wanggaard (R – Racine).

Assembly Bill 720, now Act 376, shortens the length of the redemption period in the foreclosure from a six or 12 month process to a three or six month process.  This incentivizes borrowers to negotiate with lenders and reduces the possibility properties will be abandoned, left in disrepair, or damaged. The bill was authored by Representative Terry Katsma (R – Oostburg) and Senator Frank Lasee (R – De Pere).

Assembly Bill 901, now Act 377, increases funding to the Arts Board by $13,800 for fiscal year 2015-16. This grant from the National Endowment for the Arts requires a 1:1 match from each recipient and allows the Wisconsin Arts Board to fully match available federal funding to support the development of arts and humanities throughout the state. The bill was authored by Representative Joan Ballweg (R – Markesan) and Senator Sheila Harsdorf (R – River Falls).
