Last year, the La Crosse School District saw 83 employees either retire or resign. So far this year...that number is at 63....with 32 added to that list Monday night. With impending budget cuts and possible layoffs coming, we asked District Human Resources Director, Steve Salerno, if these positions will be filled.
Salerno says he just came back from a recruitment fair in Madison and the line of applicants at their table was longer then any other school there. How many total positions that will be filled.....unknown at this time.
An early-morning collision in Winona County leads to hospital trips for two people...
They were in a westbound car on Highway 14 that was hit by an oncoming car crossing the center line. That other car was struck from behind while turning onto 14. Two people from Winona County were in the car that crossed the highway, but they were not injured. The crash occurred around 7 o'clock this morning.

(AP) Madison firefighter Mahlon Mitchell has defeated two opponents to win the Democratic primary for Wisconsin lieutenant governor. With the win Tuesday, the leader of the statewide firefighters' union will now challenge Republican incumbent Rebecca Kleefisch next month. According to unofficial results, Mitchell defeated Milwaukee private detective Ira Robins and fake Democrat Isaac Weix. Kleefisch didn't have a primary opponent. The lieutenant governor's job carries no official duties. However, the lieutenant governor would take over if the governor dies, leaves office early or is incapacitated. Kleefisch and Republican Gov. Scott Walker are facing recall elections sparked by Walker's law that eliminated collective-bargaining rights for most public employees. The general election will be June 5.
