Incomplete police chase data raises suspicions

01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

Tourism Conference Coming

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The director and star of the 1980 comedy hit ``Airplane!'' are flying in to Wisconsin again. David Zucker and Robert Hays will be in Madison on Monday to unveil a new TV spot promoting the state as a tourism destination. Their appearance coincides with a statewide conference on tourism.

Zucker directed the commercial last summer on Plum Lake in Sayner. Hays, best known as the pilot from the film hit, plays a befuddled fisherman in the ad.

It's due to begin running in May in Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul, eastern Iowa and Milwaukee. Gov. Scott Walker and state lawmakers will take part in the three-day tourism conference.

A well-known La Crosse priest planned a lecture for tonight about electing a pope...halfway expecting that cardinals would not be finished with the election yet.

But you can still hear Monsignor Bernard McGarty tonight, and find out how he thinks the election of Pope Francis compares to others during the history of the Catholic Church. McGarty was surprised at how quickly cardinals reached a decision last week...two days, instead of the five days he expected.  And McGarty guesses that many cardinals who are now too old to vote on a pope may have talked a bit about the cardinal from Argentina before the conclave began. McGarty's talk starts at 7 o'clock tonight at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center.

Many communities with a large amount of boat traffic charge fees for letting boaters use public landings...

Now, the town of Campbell is starting to sell its own permits for four specific landings...Nelson Park, Fisherman's Road, and two on the spillway. Town administrator Chad Hawkins says the landing charges will be official, once signs are posted at the landing sites.  The yearly boat landing permits in Campbell are 10 dollars for a resident, 15 dollars for a non-resident, and 5 bucks for a trailer. Daily passes also will be available.
