For the second straight year, the La Crosse Center will be the host site for the NCAA Division 3 National Wrestling championships this weekend. Kim Blum, tournament director, talks about hosting the huge event.
170 wrestlers from 62 colleges will hit the mats Friday and Saturday, searching for all american and national champ status. UW-L will watch as Bebeto Yewah( BAH-BAY-TO YOU-WAH) goes for his third straight national championship. He will be joined by 4 other Eagle wrestlers. The event saw visitors spend over half a million dollars in the area last year.
Glenn Grothman says he's trying to right a wrong. Grothman's a republican state senator from West Bend who has introduced a bill in Madison to force the state's Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize single parenting as a risk factor for child abuse and neglect. Statistics prove it, says Grothman, but liberals ignore it
Grothman say democrats have basically enabled child abuse by allowing for excessive welfare benefits which, in turn, leads to the breakdown of the traditional family.
Originally the city of La Crosse was hoping to collect with a new stormwater utility at the beginning of this year. But a problem setting up a billing process likely will delay collection for months. Water utility manager Mark Johnson says billing for stormwater is not as easy as billing for water and sewer because there's no meter involved
Eventually, a typical household in La Crosse will pay an extra fifty bucks a year in a stormwater charge.
Hard to cut your own pay. So, it's a bit unlikely that the La Crosse city council will vote this week to do just that. It's one of two proposals by council member John Satory. Cut the pay in half. Cut the terms in half; from four years to two. The council, he says, would attract many more qualified candidates
Reason for the pay cut? Satory says, it's only fair. Since the council voted last month to cut the next mayor's pay in half if voters approve the plan for adding a city administrator in a binding referendum next month.
Faulty brake lights have led a La Crosse guy to his sixth OWI. Cops say they pulled over Sean Iverson on Saturday evening. Drinking? asked the cops. No, not at all, said Iverson. And then when he got out of his van, an empty beer can rolled out onto the ground. They found a bunch of cold ones in a box between the seats. Police say the 44 year-old Iverson blew slightly over a .14 on the breathalyzer.
