Marjorie Reinhart Remembered as Extraordinary Benefactor
The passing of an icon in La Crosse. The great benefactor Marjorie Reinhart died on Monday at 79. Hard to imagine what Viterbo University would look like, says president Rick Artman, without Reinhart's support. He says Marjorie's generosity blessed the university.
Reinhart and her husband, D.B., gave millions to Viterbo and to the hospitals as well. Peter Grabow, at Franciscan Healthcare in La Crosse, says you can look in any direction on the medical center's campus or in just about any of their programs and see an impact from Marjorie and the rest of the Reinhart family.
Victims Of Mindoro Crash Were At Bar Before Police Chase
Drinking and speeding apparently combined to cause a crash that killed three men, following a police chase near Mindoro last month...
A La Crosse County Sheriff's Department report says Thomas Storandt and Joel Kirchner were dead at the accident scene, while Joshua Koss still showed some signs of life when emergency workers arrived. All three had been thrown from a pickup that may have crashed at a speed close to 100 miles an hour. A sheriff's deputy says the truck sped away when he tried to stop it, after the driver burned rubber in an alley. The deputy believes the men tossed cans and cups of beer out of the truck during the chase. The three had spent much of the afternoon at a Mindoro bar before the chase and accident.
