French Island Family To Get Major Surprise Today

French Island Family to Get Christmas Surprise

A French Island family is going to get a major Christmas surprise Friday afternoon thanks to the creativity and generosity of several local individuals and organizations. Matthew Henderson, of Henderson Motorsports and La Crosse Speedway announcer Dan Deicher wanted to spread some holiday cheer, so they found a French Island family of racing enthusiasts who could use some extra support this holiday season. The duo worked in partnership with the School District of La Crosse to obtain the children’s Christmas wish list and added some extra items to the list as well.

On Friday December 20th at 3:30 p.m. Henderson will roll into the family’s driveway at 1918 Lakeshore Drive in his La Crosse Speedway Nascar late model to surprise the family with their Christmas wish list.  His caravan of goodness will include Santa Claus and Speedway announcer Dan Deicher. 

“I have children and know how fortunate they have been during this time of the year,” shares Deicher, also a radio personality for Midwest Family Broadcasting. “Being in the media, it breaks my heart doing stories of children and families that have to deal with financial hardships and that they cannot give their children what they want to for Christmas.” 

When the Henderson racing team approached Deicher with the idea of giving back this holiday season, Deicher wasn’t surprised. 

“Matt Henderson, his wife Brittany and his entire family racing crew have entertained racing fans in the area for quite some time. They wanted to give back, and along with Altra Federal Credit Union, Midwest Family Broadcasting, and other donations we are able to do just that.”

In addition, the children will each receive a new winter coat as part of Operation Stay Warm sponsored by the La Crosse Firefighters IAFF Local 127.

Henderson and the caravan will leave Summit Elementary School’s parking lot at 3:30 p.m. and drive to 1918 Lakeshore Drive to surprise the family and their four children.

La Crosse County is looking toward more populated areas of the state, for advice on handling a heroin epidemic...

Green Bay Police Chief Tom Molitor has briefed the La Crosse Heroin Task Force on anti-drug policies being tried in the Fox River Valley. Molitor says employers should pay attention to workers who may have drug problems, and consider ways to help them break the habit.

 

Chief Molitor says local officials should look for ways to 'break the cycle' of heroin addiction, which can lead people to break the law so they can get money for drugs.

A dispute between neighbors over chemical spraying in Trempealeau County could lead to a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling.

The high court says it will review a complaint by a couple from the Independence area, who want their neighbor held liable for killing dozens of trees on their land. The neighbor hired a forestry company to spray herbicide on his farm land, but the chemical apparently also destroyed trees on nearby property. An appeals court asked the Supreme Court to decide whether the neighbor can be sued for property damages, for hiring the foresters.

Rob Pharmacies, Go To Prison

Written by

A Tomah man will spend the next 20 months in prison sentence after he held up four Madison area pharmacies earlier this year. 35 year old Jesse Kirk received his federal sentence earlier this week.

Prosecutors proved that Kirk went on a 10 day, four pharmacy robbery spree in April. In court, they sad Kirk took various types of controlled substances, such as OxyContin, during the robberies.

A judge said a prison term was necessary due to the severity of the conduct and threats of violence made during the holdups. The judge also said the robberies stemmed from Kirk's drug addictions.
