The D-A's office in Sparta says Tammy Cole still has a court hearing in northern Illinois within the next couple of days. Monroe County Prosecutor Dan Cary tells us Cole hasn't agreed to leave Illinois yet. The 46-year-old woman surrendered to cops in the Rockford area last week, after police identified her as the main suspect in the April shooting of Tomah bar owner Vance Evans. An attorney for Cole told Tomah police that the woman was involved in an accidental shooting in Tomah the day Evans died.

Police say surveillance video places Haydock near the bank around the time of Tuesday's robbery. He's also accused of robbing the Firefighters' Credit Union on 5th Avenue last month.

Even though Weber says he's thought about another building in the area, he's not sure where it would go.
The surprises just keep on coming in politics. This time it's a Republican willing to take on long-time La Crosse democratic state rep Jennifer Shilling in this fall's elections. It's Julian Bradley, Thursday announcing his candidacy for state assembly as a Republican. It will be the first run for office for the CenturyLink supervisor and part time UWL student. Shilling hasn't had a Republican challenger since 2002.
