Driver Cut From Car After Swerving to Miss Deer

Written by

Brake. Don't swerve. That's what they tell you about running into deer on the road. Many don't. Like the 47 year-old Viroqua area woman who swerved to miss a deer yesterday on highway 82 in Vernon county. She overcorrected, rolled her car but was trapped inside. Firefighters had to cut the woman out of her car. Whe was taken to the hospital. Cops are still investigating.

Campbell Chief Selection Could Come Tonight

Written by

Campbell's town board could vote tonight to end a year-long drought without a full-time police chief on duty. It was a year ago this week that former chief Tim Kelemen was placed on leave for using the internet to harass a critic of the town government. Kelemen was off the job for five months before leaving his post in November. This evening, the board will interview a second candidate for chief, Brian Puent (pent). Drew Gavrilos met with the board last week, but supervisors also wanted to hear from Puent before making a final decision.

Jail Mental Health Needs Being Met

Written by

A decade ago, La Crosse County law enforcement was disturbed by a pair of suicides within the jail. They wondered whether enough was being done to help inmates who might be mentally ill. Conditions are much better at the jail now, according to jail therapist Steve Josephson.

 

Josephson says the jail is not a 'torture chamber' for prisoners who have emotional problems. He credits the La Crosse jail with having a good staff who can respond to medical needs.

Big Dollar Development at Center of Town, City Debate

Written by

At stake with a vote this week by the La Crosse city hall: 12 million dollars of development just outside city limits in the town of Shelby. The city council can deny the development. Obviously with that in mind, the Shelby town board has agreed in principle on an agreement to help pay for city services. But the planned development is worth it for the town. And the La Crosse school district, says Shelby town chair, Tim Candahl.  He says the tax revenue from the development will less the tax burden throughout the area. 

 

 

 

The state gives cities like La Crosse zoning jurisdiction over areas within three miles of city limits. Just like the planned Willow Heights subdivision in Shelby.

48 Hour Waiting Period Repeal Passes

Written by

A significantly more dangerous Wisconsin? That's what some lawmakers are saying after the state assembly agreed on Tuesday to end the state's 48 hour waiting period to buy handguns. For certain that puts more women at risk who are already victims of domestic violence, claims democratic state rep, Chris Taylor, who urged her colleagues to turn down the repeal by saying the state needs more gun safety measure.  Not less. The senate has already voted to end the 48 hour waiting period so the bill now goes to governor Walker for a signature.

Possible Shelby, La Crosse Agreement in the Works

Written by

A revenue sharing agreement between city and town? One appears to be in the works between La Crosse and Shelby. Shelby has passed resolution acknowledging people from the town use city services and agreeing to discussions regarding some sort of revenue sharing plan. Such a plan has been spurred by resistance from the city to allow a couple of high end subdivision developments in the town, citing a need to share the cost of providing city services to those areas.

Wanted Chicago Man in La Crosse County Jail

Written by

A Chicago area man is being held on half-a-million dollars bond in the La Crosse jail, as a fugitive from Illinois. Twenty-two-year-old Kendal Readus was arrested in La Crosse County yesterday, on a warrant issued by a Lake County, Illinois judge in April. Readus is accused of breaking into a North Chicago home on April 9th and threatening a couple in the home while he was carrying a firearm. Police say he also stole money and a wallet from the house, and fired a shot at another vehicle.

Money from special interest groups are pouring into Wisconsin politics. At least that's the case over the past five years, according to a new report from advocacy group, Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. The group tracks spending on elections and says at least a dozen groups have spent more than two million dollars on elections and influencing politicians since 2010. Top of the list, spending an estimated 27 million and change during that time is the Greater Wisconsin Committee, which supports democratic candidates.

Railroad Ties in Fire Meant for Xcel Plant

Written by

The old railroad ties that fueled a big fire on French Island today were meant to be burned, but not right now. Xcel Energy has used ground-up ties as fuel for the French Island incinerator for several years. Xcel spokeswoman Liz Wolf Green says the wood chips stored at Omaha Track make up 50 per cent of the typical fuel load for the refuse-to-energy plant. The other 50 per cent is garbage that would otherwise go to landfills. Green tells us that the Xcel plant could operate just on burning garbage, if their supply of wood chips was disrupted.
