Here in the Coulee Region of Western Wisconsin Christmas is a very special time of year. Whether you travel to Trempealeau, Holmen, Sparta, Tomah, Onalaska, Prairie du Chien, La Crosse, or any of the towns in between you are going to find examples of the Christmas spirit all over the place.

Drawing down due to ballot errors

The biggest news of the week for the Coulee Region was the recount for Senate District 32 between Dan Kapanke and Jennifer Shilling. As an official observer for the Kapanke campaign, I spent the week looking over the shoulders of poll workers and clerk staff to observe that all laws and procedures were followed. What I witnessed was a memorable lesson in how our elections work and the people we rely on every election to get it right.
