Man who threatened to kill president charged

Written by

A Tomah man who threatened to kill President Barack Obama while he was in the area last week, has been formally charged with a crime.

 

55 year old Brian Dutcher appeared in federal court in Madison on Tuesday. The complaint says that Dutcher traveled to La Crosse on July 1st, the day before President Barack Obama was scheduled to speak at UW-La Crosse on the economy. The complaint alleges Dutcher approached a security guard at the La Crosse Public Library and said he knew the president was in town and he would shoot the president if given the opportunity. He also told an investigator that he had stated the same thing on his facebook page. A detention hearing will be held later this week.

Tech school first phase completion cheered

Written by

Construction on the northern half of the Western Technical College Coleman Center is complete. Facilities Manager Jay McHenry tells us things have been smooth sailing for the most part so far.  He partially credits having "a very good team going into the project" for that success.

 

Phase two of the project will begin next week with fall of 2016 completion being the target date. Coleman Center remodeling and construction is part of the college s Vision 2020 facilities plan, funded through the $79 million referendum approved by voters in 2012.

Group pursuing mystery of open records limit origin

Written by

Bill Lueders, president of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council, says his organization wants to know exactly who was behind last week's move to gut the state's Open Records law something he will aggressively pursue. Lueders says the measure, inserted in the state budget bill late at night just before the long Independence Day weekend, brought immediate, harsh, and nearly universal push back .

 

The item was approved by the 12 Republican members of the powerful Joint Finance Committee, over the protests of the committee's four Democrats. Lueders says no one has said where the initiative for the proposal originated. Governor Walker has said the proposal will be discussed as a separate measure outside the budget bill.

Duct tape child rapist says he didn't do it

Written by

A sexual assault suspect pleads 'not guilty' today, to a charge of forcing a teenage girl to have sex with him while camping on an island. Last month, a La Crosse judge found probable cause to try 39-year-old Christopher John on the alleged rape charge. John's next court hearing is set for October. Police found evidence that John put duct tape on the girl's mouth and bound her hands together during the reported assault.

Troopers alone in line for pay raise

Written by

A bill that would give state troopers a 6% raise in exchange for higher health insurance premiums was approved this morning by the state senate. Another bill on the Senate agenda would set up a new 2 year compensation plan for about 31 thousand other state employees. On the floor, Democrat Fred Risser explained his no vote by reminding colleagues that none of the other 60 thousand state employees were getting raises. 

 

That plan contains no general wage increases. Most state workers got 1 percent raises in both 2013 and 2014. It was approved 19-14.

Tech school president proud of grad rates

Written by

The caps and gowns have been put away and the diplomas are being framed. What's in store for the thousands of recent college graduates in Wisconsin? While they are often anxious about finding a job, a recently released report suggests graduates of Wisconsin's technical colleges need not worry.

Western Technical College President, Lee Rasch tells us that some of their numbers are higher then the state's overall.

 

95 percent of 2014 Western Technical College's grads were employed within six months and 87 percent employed in occupations related to their degrees. Job placement rates for system wide graduates have been 86 percent or higher for the last 16 years.

Indoor smoking ban anniversary cheered

Written by

Doctors and other health professionals are celebrating five years of smoke-free laws in Wisconsin. Although the air is cleaner in public places, the bad news is that too many people are still smoking and young people continue to pick up the tobacco habit. The La Crosse Area Health Initiative continues looking for ways to get people to give up tobacco, and to avoid using e-cigarettes, which they argue are not helping smokers quit.

Salvation Army tries new kind of kettle drive

Written by
If you're seeing red kettles on counter tops in local stores.......don't think you've just woke up from a long winter's nap. It's a new fund raising drive for the Salvation Army to help pay for thousands of meals they will serve over the next few months.
 
Julie Nelson with the local Army says while donations of food are always helpful, The Salvation Army fund raising drive focuses on cash donations to help pay for the behind the scenes part of feeding the hungry.
 
 
 
Nelson says The Salvation Army is asking people for an average gift of $6 since the cost of providing one meal in the meal program is $6. She says giving $6 to help a feeding program is like taking a homeless person to lunch. Nelson says the big red kettles will be back out around the holidays.

County considers art displays, hiring curator

Written by

If you attend a La Crosse County Board meeting now, in the basement of the former courthouse, you might notice long blank walls down the hallway. When the county board moves its meetings to Associated Bank in the next year or two, things will look much different. Designers of the new offices plan to keep the glassed-in atrium now featured above the main bank lobby, and a special arts committee is recommending artworks that could be displayed in the main hallway of the new administrative center. The committee proposes a 10-thousand dollar yearly budget to hire an art coordinator who would arrange the art inside the building, possibly featuring mobiles and 3D works.

Mayor urges patience with construction

Written by

The street construction mess in La Crosse is only supposed to last another month. Mayor Tim Kabat tells us the maintenance project on 2nd Street between State and La Crosse Streets is on schedule to end in August. He urges drivers to be patient. 

 

The mayor was concerned about the impact the construction might have on Riverfest, which ended on Saturday. But he says despite traffic and parking problems, it looks like the festival had higher attendance than last year.
