City council will vote on change next week
Sometimes, when things are working well, you have to wonder why people want to change the way things work. Such is the case with lawmakers in Madison, who want to...
An appeals court ruling involving a La Crosse couple could be watched closely by lawyers who work on pre-nuptial agreements...
The Fourth District Court of Appeals is sending a divorce case back to Judge Todd Bjerke, to settle disputes over divided property and 'spousal maintenance.' A local doctor and his wife broke up, and they disagree on whether the pre-marriage agreement they signed two days before the wedding can be enforced. One issue to be decided is whether she is able to support herself without much money from him. The pre-nuptial contract apparently assumed that both husband and wife would work steadily throughout the marriage, and did not take into account that the wife would stop working for some time to raise their kids.
As far as the weather service is concerned, winter ends today in the Midwest.
The National Weather Service bases its winter weather records on the three months from December through February. And in those months, La Crosse has had about 40 inches of snow...almost twice what we received last winter. Because our snow cover should keep temperatures low, forecaster Jeff Boyne does not expect a repeat of last year's record warmth in March.

A word of caution to Americans who want to donate goods to foreign countries...
There's no guarantee the donations will reach their destination. Blame that on government red tape, corruption, or other factors. The president of Western Technical College, Lee Rasch, says a recent medical shipment from Wisconsin was delayed in getting to a clinic in Cameroon, because dockworkers wanted bribes before they would unload the crate from a ship. Rasch praises two nuns for going through Cameroon government channels to claim the shipment. The nuns attended Western Tech in La Crosse to study computer science. Rasch is working with a La Crosse group to establish sister city ties to the community of Kumbo in Cameroon.
The final report on how a Winona State student died may depend greatly on the results of lab tests...
Winona Police Chief Paul Bostrack is waiting for a lab in Ramsey County to release results of toxicology tests on 19-year-old Mitchell Grierson. Mitchell was a freshman studying communications at WSU. His roommate found him dead in their dorm room on February 17th. Bostrack believes the tests could take up to two months to process.
