Million Dollar Parking Lot

Written by

What would you be willing to pay for the courthouse parking lot in downtown La Crosse?

Community development specialist Brian Fukuda has come up with a ballpark value, in case developers want to build on the block between State and Vine where the courthouse stood 50 years ago.  Fukuda suggests that the lot could sell for around $1.5 million.  A space study just presented to the county suggests that new county offices could be built on the north end of that parking lot...at the loss of about 100 surface parking stalls.  Fukuda says he checked into the possible value of the block, after hearing comments that the courthouse lot is only worth about a dollar.

No Trapping Muskrats In Onalaska...For Now

Written by

Some critter comfort in Onalaska...

 

The city's park board is denying a request to trap muskrats in a conservancy area near Highway 53. A citizen asked the park department for permission to set traps in retention ponds at the Greens Coulee Park. Alderman Erik Sjolander tells us the park board could not find evidence that muskrats are creating a nuisance in that area. Outdoor experts say the price of muskrat pelts has increased sharply in the Midwest over the last two years.

BRF Prison Escapee Pair Serving Fed Time Now

Written by

Some final closure, prison time wise now for both men who escaped from a Black River Falls prison camp then went on a cross country crime spree before being recaptured. 30 year old James Newman of Black River Falls was given ten years federal time, for unlawfully possessing a stolen shotgun as a convicted felon. He had pleaded guilty to the charge in late June.

Last summer, Newman and 18 year old James Misleveck took off from Jackson County. After the escape, they stole a shotgun and abducted a woman near Black River Falls. She was released in Sparta. The two then traveled to Florida where they committed several crimes including the robbing and beating of a convenience store clerk.

In April, Misleveck was sentenced to a mandatory minimum 15 year federal prison sentence as an armed career criminal with three previous violent felony convictions.
