Argument at Work Leads to Talk of Terrorism, Criminal Charge
A workplace tiff has turned into something a little bigger in the eyes of La Crosse police. A woman at a La Crosse hospital says some kidding around in the break room took a serious turn when one of the workers threatened to blow her up. He was talking about putting a bomb in her car, sending her up to heaven in little pieces, triggering the bomb to go off when she opened the door; that kind of thing. He apparently also mentioned something about being a terrorist. Internal investigation at the hospital determined it was all just talk. But after the guy cut the woman off while driving, she got police involved. Guy says he was joking about all the terrorism talk. Cops aren't laughing. They've busted the 43 year-old on disorderly conduct charges.
Student Who Calls Police For Break-in, Busted for Drugs
Your first call when you find your apartment has been broken into? The police, of course. The call that Casey Flower made when he got back to his La Crosse apartment from Minneapolis over the week-end and found his door kicked in. The 21 year-old UWL student probably wasn't thinking that there was anything wrong with the pungent smell of fresh marijuana that police encountered when they got there. After poking around, cops found pot, pot pipes, pot seeds in a little glass vial and some random prescription narcotics to boot. Flower may have been the one to get his door kicked in, but he's the one who faces three drug possession charges now.

Kader: Bids for Bliss Need to be on Hand When Council Decides to Fix
At this point, there's been no decision made to actually fix Bliss Road in La Crosse. Yet, the city council's on the way towards collecting bids on the road to Grandad Bluff that's been washed out since last summer. City council president Audrey Kader says it's good to have the bids on hand in case the council votes to proceed with repairs. She says Bliss is likely to get fixed eventually. Especially since there seems to be new willingness from the town of Shelby to help pay for repairs.
