Last-Minute Doctor's Report Leads To Delay Of Stanley Hearing
One more delay for Bryan Stanley...
The commitment hearing for the man who killed three people at an Onalaska church has been delayed until next month, because of information received by Stanley's lawyer on short notice. Attorney Tom Hayes says he got a doctor's report on Stanley late yesterday afternoon, and he has not had time to review the report with his client. Stanley was sent back to the Mendota hospital last month after experiencing 'anxiety.' He has been living in the area for three years, after spending more than 20 years in the state hospital because of the church murders.
Miller Says Casino Money Needed For New Stadium

La Crosse county has climbed back into the state's number two position for unemployment rates.
