New Medical Course Offered
Medical professions are on the rise in the La Crosse area. After two years of market studies and gathering input from focus groups made up of local business and industry partners, a new curriculum at Western Technical College has been established and students are being accepted into a new Medical Administrative Professional associate's degree program. And it comes with three levels.
Gary Brown, Dean of Western's Business division, says the new course, which is supported by the entire medical community, will be available this spring semester, which starts January 16th. They are taking enrollments for the course now.
Will Year Round Schools Work
There would still be the same number of school days, but at Hamilton Elementary School instead of a long summer break there would be a number of shorter, strategic ones. That's the plan being looked for 2013. So why is year round school being looked at now?
Voter ID Concerns 3 Local Groups
Three local groups that work with the disabled, senior citizens and those that vote held a press conference this morning to announce 4 workshops that will be held next week to set people straight on what the new Voter ID rules means to them. One was Jane Klekamp with the League of Women Voters.
She was joined by representatives with AARP and the Lacrosse County Aging Unit. The workshops will take place next Tuesday in Onalaska, Wednesday in Holmen, Thursday in West Salem and Friday in Lacrosse. All of the events start at 10:30am. County Clerk, Ginny Denkmeyer, will also be on hand to answer any Voter ID questions you may have.
Bond Set In Stabbing Case
A Lacrosse man is being held in the county jail on a $25 thousand cash bond for his role in the stabbing of a bartender at John's Bar back on December 21st. 32 year old Anquin St. Junious, who appeared in court in a wheelchair, is accused of stabbing a 24 year old man in the lower abdomen while trying to push his way back into John’s Bar after the bartender removed him during a fight. St. Junious, of 930 Copeland Ave., faces charges of recklessly endangerment while armed.
He told police a group of men attacked him and he used a knife he found on
the ground for self-defense, according to reports. He denied stabbing
anyone. But one witness said St. Junious removed a knife from his pocket
just before the stabbing. Officers found St. Junious on the sidewalk
bleeding from the face and a folding knife near his hand.
