Another Oktoberfest secret is out...
Guests at the Mrs. Oktoberfest reception last night got to toast the new 'Mrs.'...retired nurse Julie Bartels. She worked with Franciscan and Mayo for more than 30 years. While her selection was kept secret from the public until this week, Julie learned the news last May, after being invited to a luncheon under phony pretenses.
The last member of the 2012 royal family, the Festmaster, will be introduced at the Festmaster's Ball tomorrow night.
Izelia Golatt has been found guilty of the strangling death of Kristen Rodgers. A La Crosse County jury reached the verdict just before 6 o'clock tonight, after two hours of deliberations. Golatt will be sentenced on November 16th. Rodgers was killed last March, after meeting Golatt to obtain crack cocaine.
Talks are starting to pick up again in Monroe County as county board members
La Crosse County has its own boat patrol out on the Mississippi during the summer and early fall...but the city of La Crosse hasn't operated its own patrol boat for many years.
They'll have one this weekend, though. The La Crosse police showed off their patrol boat for reporters this morning, along the levee at Riverside Park. Assistant chief Rob Abraham says the boat is intended to improve the river-watch that already happens on weekend nights.
Abraham says the city will continue to rely on the sheriff's department boat for many patrols, because it's 'cost-prohibitive' for the city to have its own patrol boat full-time. Police also will increase their bicycle patrol during the opening weekend of the fest.
