No ruling on Waukesha Fire Chief Jesse Alba; hearing continues Oct. 8

Sept. 25, 2013 2:33 p.m. | Waukesha Fire Chief Jesse Alba’s fate within the department is still to be determined.

After more than five hours of testimony two weeks ago, Alba’s attorney, Victor E. Plantinga, was hoping to bring the woman the city says Alba sexually harassed to the stand.

However, the woman, a former part-time fire department employee, did not show up Wednesday afternoon and the hearing continued without her.

As a result, Alba, on paid administrative leave since Aug. 21, was the only person who testified at City Hall. 

Alba, accused of violating the city’s anti-harassment policy among other city rules, said at the first hearing that he asked the part-time employee to consider resigning on two occasions as a solution to the difficulties both were having in getting past the affair the two had last year.

Waukesha County tax bill won't increase under proposed budget

Sept. 24, 2013 9:20 p.m. | On Tuesday Waukesha County Executive Dan Vrakas introduced his 2014 Executive Budget, which freezes the county portion of the property tax bill.

“Through efficiency, smart budgeting and sticking to our core values, we are able to hold the line on County property taxes for 2014,” Vrakas said.

In order to freeze taxes, Waukesha County practices conservative budgeting and focuses on collaborating with other governments and the private sector to implement efficiencies and save tax dollars.

One partnership Vrakas highlighted is an effort to reduce employee health insurance costs by partnering with the City of Waukesha and the Waukesha School District to develop a privately operated on-site medical clinic within existing space on County grounds. A recent study projected that this clinic will generate nearly $7 million in savings over five years for the County, City and School District, by lowering health claims and prescription drug costs through onsite management and encouraging greater efficiency in care. The County is currently seeking a privately run healthcare provider to operate the facility.

Vrakas’s proposed budget maintains investments in roads and buildings. Vrakas said that by maintaining infrastructure, Waukesha County will help retain, grow and attract businesses while continuing to provide a high-quality of life for residents.

Proposed Waukesha County budget cuts museum funding in half

Sept. 24, 2013 8:01 p.m. | The Waukesha County 2014 budget cuts funding for the Waukesha County Museum from $300,000 to $150,000. The reduction is something museum Chief Executive Officer, Kirsten Lee Villegas, pleaded with county board members earlier this month not to do.

Lee Villegas said the funding is crucial for the county museum to continue its operations.

From 1964 to 2002, the county paid all costs associated with museum operations. But the Waukesha County Board of Supervisors sold the historic county courthouse complex to the Waukesha County Historical Society for $1 in 2002.

In January 2003 the county transferred ownership to the museum, but through a 10-year agreement, taxpayers still funded some of the museum's expenses.

That agreement expired this year. Board Supervisor Walter Kolb told Villegas at a previous meeting that continuing to appropriate $300,000 to the museum was "overboard" and that the county has other priorities to fund with taxpayer dollars. The $300,000 amounts to about 80 cents per taxpayer each year.

Catholic Memorial runs over Waukesha South

Sept. 21, 2013 12:28 a.m. | Waukesha — It isn't very often the Catholic Memorial football team is looking up at Waukesha South in the Classic 8 Conference standings.

So the Crusaders, ranked eighth in the area by the Journal Sentinel, went out and rushed for 378 yards in a 56-14 victory Friday night over the previously unbeaten Blackshirts at Carroll University.

"(South coach) Dave Rusch and the Blackshirts, they've done a wonderful job," Memorial coach Bill Young said. "They've earned all the hype that they've got, and our kids, we were ready to play really hard."

Reigning Division 3 state champion Memorial (4-1 overall, 2-1 Classic 8) had won its first three games by a combined score of 113-0 before suffering a 12-0 loss to conference foe and defending Division 1 state champ Arrowhead last week.

Other than winning, obviously, what did Young exactly want to see from his team following the loss to the Warhawks?

Sept. 19, 2013 3:11 p.m. | Mayor Jeff Scrima did not mince words when he offered his solution to what he calls “sinking leadership” at the Waukesha County Museum.

In an email sent to Waukesha County Board of Supervisors Thursday afternoon, he said the museum should consolidate into the Waukesha Public Library.

Waukesha County Museum CEO/President Kirsten Lee Villegas said she is also saddened.

But she's saddened by Scrima's scathing remarks.

Waukesha Common Council approves rezoning for Meijer development to take next step

Sept. 17, 2013 10:59 p.m. | Local neighbors have fought it – and did once again Tuesday night – but the Meijer store continues to take the steps needed to enter the City of Waukesha. 

The Common Council approved rezoning of the land the 192,000-square-foot supercenter would be on to a B-5 Community Business Planned Unit Development from T-1 zoning after a 12-3 vote.

The land had been previously annexed from the Town of Waukesha.

A three-quarters vote – or 12 of the 15 Common Council members – was needed because a protest petition against the rezoning was sent to the city. Those living within 100 feet of the site were eligible to sign the petition.

The three who voted against the rezoning was Aldermen Steve Johnson and Eric Payne and Alderwoman Kathleen Cummings.

Waukesha South blazes to 4-0

Sept. 14, 2013 12:37 a.m. | The confidence is building for Waukesha South.

On the heels of a 41-27 win over Kettle Moraine, the Blackshirts are in waters they haven't traveled in years, moving to 4-0 for the first time since 2008. South hasn't won four games in an entire season since 2003 but still needs a win over one of the Classic 8 Conference's big four teams to make its first playoffs since 1999. Next week's game at Catholic Memorial could be interesting.

"Now we've got confidence with CMH," said running back Isaiah Pitchford. "I know everyone's going to say, 'Yeah, they're 4-0, (but) CMH is a big (challenge), now we're going to lose.' I don't think we're going to think that way. We're going to be confident now. I think we're going to turn their head a little bit."

Taking advantage of seven Lasers turnovers, South took a big lead and took a convincing win over the Lasers (1-3 overall, 0-2 in conference). Four of the turnovers led to South points.

"We took advantage of their turnovers, which is what a good football team does, take advantage of the turnovers, and that was the difference in the game, without a doubt," South coach Dave Rusch said.

Waukesha fire chief Jesse Alba's disciplinary hearing to continue in two weeks

Sept. 12, 2013 6:08 p.m. | It was a long, emotional and revealing day at Waukesha City Hall.

For more than five hours, testimonials were given Thursday on suspended Waukesha Fire Chief Jesse Alba during his disciplinary hearing on allegations that he violated the anti-harassment policy and the fire department’s rules of conduct, among other rules.

A final decision has yet to be made as the hearing will continue in less than two weeks as Alba’s attorney, Victor E. Plantinga, will subpoena the woman who the fire chief is alleged to have sexually harassed.

The next hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Sept 25 at City Hall. Testimonials will finish on that day and Alba’s fate with the department will then be determined.

“We believe her testifying will (show) not only misleading the investigator but frankly not telling the truth,” Plantinga said. “Much of the investigation depends on the credibility of one person.”

Emerald ash borer discovered in Waukesha's Frame Park

Sept. 10, 2013 6:09 p.m. | Peter Traczek knew it was only a matter of time before the emerald ash borer, (EAB), was detected in Waukesha.

That time came last week when a horticulturalist discovered EAB Aug. 27 on a tree inside Frame Park.

"We anticipated it and it has been here for several years just based on the findings in the area," said Traczek, Waukesha's Parks and Forestry operations manager.

But Traczek said when the individual discovered D-shaped exit holes in a declining ash tree it showed that this is just the beginning in Waukesha. Forestry staff came out and cut the tree down and discovered the larvae of the beetle underneath the bark.

Pictures were taken and sent to the Department of Natural Resources who confirmed what was already suspected. He said the invasive, metallic green beetle grew inside that tree "for several years." It builds up and kills the trees within three to five years.

Waukesha West stuns Mukwonago in overtime epic

Sept. 06, 2013 12:14 a.m. | "You won't see a game like that one again."

The public address announcer at Mukwonago High School had it right in the immediate aftermath of Thursday's epic showdown between Waukesha West and the host school. West's Thomas MacCudden delivered the winning two-point conversion on a winner-take-all play in overtime, lifting the Wolverines to a 45-44 thriller that left Mukwonago stunned.

One play earlier, MHS had compelled an incomplete pass on the conversion, but a penalty for defensive holding gave West one more crack. Mukwonago traveled the length of the field with 1 minute to play in regulation to tie the game, then scored first in the extra session in a playoff atmosphere.

"The character of Mukwonago's team coming back down two scores … We played against a great football team there," West coach Steve Rux said. "Our guys are completely spent right now. This is what high school football is all about. At any point in that game, it could have gone the other way. We had great football, great players and great coaching on both sides of the ball."

Waukesha's DPW board goes against staff's recommendation of having Town Hall be annexed into City

Sept. 05, 2013 5:40 p.m. | While the City of Waukesha's Department of Public Works staff recommended that the Town of Waukesha Hall be annexed into the City of Waukesha, the board did not go along with that.

It unanimously voted Thursday night to approve a request made by the Town of Waukesha to serve Town Hall, W250 S3567 Center Road, with City of Waukesha sewer services but not have it be annexed into the city.

Town Chairman John Marek was in attendance at the meeting at City Hall and said the staff's recommendation of annexation was contrary to conversations he previously had with the city.

The board's recommendation will now go before the Common Council.

Marek had made the request after he has repeatedly said before and after the April 2 election that the Town Hall's sewage septic system is shot. He said the town is spending more than $10,000 a year to have the septic tank pumped twice a month.

Waukesha Republican Bill Kramer is new Assembly leader

Sept. 04, 2013 5:02 p.m. | Madison — Assembly Republicans on Wednesday chose Rep. Bill Kramer as their new majority leader and Rep. Tyler August as speaker pro tem.

Kramer, of Waukesha, replaces Rep. Scott Suder of Abbotsford as majority leader; Suder left the Legislature on Tuesday for a job with the Public Service Commission. Kramer defeated Rep. Dean Knudson of Hudson for the job.

Since 2011, Kramer had served as speaker pro tem, presiding over Assembly debate for a contentious 21/2 years that included a 61-hour debate over eliminating collective bargaining for most public workers.

Kramer, 48, has a law degree from Duke University, is a certified public accountant and is known around the Capitol for his blunt humor and his willingness to sometimes carry a concealed gun on the floor of the Assembly.

To run for majority leader, Kramer had to give up his position as speaker pro tem. August, of Lake Geneva, was the only candidate to seek that job after Rep. André Jacque of De Pere dropped out of the race.

His trip to Waukesha means two Roman Catholic cardinals will be in the area on Thursday. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan also returns to Milwaukee on Thursday. He will speak on faith formation and spiritual renewal to a sold-out crowd at the Milwaukee Theatre.

Waukesha woman suspected of operating unlicensed dental practice

Sept. 04, 2013 10:14 a.m. | Waukesha City Police seized on Aug. 28 medical equipment, suspicious documents and a handgun from the home of a 35-year-old Waukesha woman suspected of practicing unlicensed dentistry.

The search warrant was issued at the behest of the Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office, according to the search warrant affidavit. The office had received reports that children were being brought into a nonprofit dental clinic complaining of pain, bleeding, and laryngitis, the result of shoddy orthodontic work.

The children had allegedly had braces placed on their teeth by a Waukesha woman operating an orthodontic clinic out of her home, the affidavit states. An adult patient told investigators that he was operated on while laying on the woman’s couch in her living room.

An examination of one 12-year-old boy by the nonprofit Waukesha County Community Dental Clinic showed that the patient had cement on his gums, causing inflammation, bleeding and pain, the affidavit states.

The boy’s parents said that they had heard about the unlicensed dentist from a friend. They showed up at the woman’s house and she had a white cart filled with orthodontic tools in her living room.
