Officer Nurses Dog Bite

Written by

A La Crosse police officer may be limping noticeably after an interaction with a dog on the northside of La Crosse this weekend. The cop was helping an animal control worker corral two big dogs when one of them--a pit bull--lunged at the officer and wrapped its teeth around the cop's calf. The cop went to the hospital. The owner was ticketed for letting the dogs run loose. The dog is in quarantine at the Humane Society.

La Crosse police are still searching for the armed robber who victimized a disabled man late Monday night near the area of sixth and King streets downtown.

When the victim reached in his pocket, the perp drew a knife. The thug got away with $43 in cash and $2 scratch off ticket. Police are looking at surveillance video from nearby businesses to get a good picture of the man's attacker.

Warnings to Super Duper Drunks

Public intoxication warnings this weekend to the barely moving in La Crosse. Including the 25 year-old guy police found yesterday afternoon clinging to a sign post and crying. They say he blew a .36 when they gave him the warning. Also the 57 year-old cops found lying face down in the street at King and sixth on Sunday. He blew a .34.

Would the city of La Crosse be ready for a large train derailment or a crude oil explosion? La Crosse's fire chief wants to be sure that his department has the skill and resources to deal with such a disaster. Chief Gregg Cleveland tells members of a local rail safety group that he appreciates efforts in Congress to provide more training for his crews, in case of a rail emergency.

 

Cleveland spoke at the La Crosse Amtrak station today, along with Senator Tammy Baldwin, who's sponsoring a bill aimed at making the shipment of crude oil much safer.

Seriously Drunk Driver Faces First OWI

Written by

There are drunk drivers and there are the 'how did she do that?' drivers. A woman arrested by La Crosse police over the weekend falls into the latter category. Police say the 35 year old woman hopped a curb and hit a street sign on Sunday afternoon on the northside. Didn't do well on the field sobriety tests, but she was able to hold herself upright. Surprising, considering she blew a .34 on the breathalyzer, over four times the legal limit to drive. The woman refused to admit she had been drinking and said she was coming from her job at a bar.

Cuts Coming Possible Coming to Extension Offices

Written by

UW-Extension services statewide are expected to lose about $6.9 million if Governor Scott Walker s university system budget cuts are approved. In addition, the budget proposal includes targeted cuts to Cooperative Extension, including sharp cuts in funding for environmental education programs, which would lose another $1.2 million.

Dean of Cooperative Extension, Rick Klemme says some staff cuts could be coming.......or vacant positions like in La Crosse just won't be filled.

 

According to Klemme, the resulting deficit would be equivalent to roughly 80 county based positions or 50 campus based positions statewide.

Kind Approves of VA Changes

Written by

The new leadership at the VA facility in Tomah continues to implement change, a month and a half after being brought in to take on the task. A new 30 day plan at the VA addresses not only how the medical center can better improve care for veterans, but it also aims to give employees more of a voice without fear of speaking out. The 30 Day Plan will also address a needed cultural change in how the facility operates.

Congressman Ron Kind says no matter whther he's in Wisconsin or Washington D.C., he's keeping tabs on the place.

 

The 30 day plan includes holding listening sessions with employees, and talking with patients regarding their needs. A major emphasis will be promoting better interaction between leadership and staff. That according to newly appointed acting director John Rohrer.
