Last March, a gun accidentally went off in a La Crosse apartment, and a bullet passed through the neck of a man standing nearby.

Miraculously, that man was not seriously hurt. But there's no such miracle for the other man who was playing around with the gun. William Petty of La Crosse is headed to prison for seven years, for reckless use of a weapon he wasn't supposed to be handling...because of a previous conviction.

 

Petty denied the claim of a police detective that he moved from Milwaukee to La Crosse to sell drugs, with the intent of 'running this town.'

Arcadia Vote Up Today

Written by

The Arcadia School District held referendums held last April, and in November of 2011.........both defeated by 2 to1 margins. Is today 3 strikes your out or third times a charm for them.

The latest request, $14 million, is substantially smaller than the previous two referendums. The estimated cost of a middle school addtion to the high school would be $12 million and another $2.1 million for improvements to the existing elementary building.

Polls throughout the school district are open until 8:00 p.m.
