Kong Vue Plea In Hougom Murder Later This Week

Written by

The man suspected of killing Sara Hougom in her La Crosse apartment last March will have his plea hearing later this week...

Kong Vue is expected to reach a plea agreement before a La Crosse County judge on Thursday. The hearing will come just two weeks after co-defendant Pao Choua Vue pled guilty to being a party to Hougom's murder. When he entered his plea, Pao Vue said that only Kong Vue went into the apartment building on Division Street to commit burglaries. Police say Kong shot Hougom when he found her inside the open apartment as he was trying to steal her purse.

The La Crosse County courts may invest more money in modern video technology, to save money over time.

Funding for a video link to connect one La Crosse courtroom and other jails could be included in next year's county budget, according to county administrator Steve O'Malley.

 

Video conferencing in the courtroom is routinely used in some parts of western Wisconsin. O'Malley says all the La Crosse judges would like to have such equipment in their courtrooms, but now they have to share facilities located on another floor.

Dog Attacks Terrorize Some in City

Written by

La Crosse isn't exactly going to the dogs.  But there's been a couple attacks in the last few days that may make it seem so.  There was the 82 year-old woman out for a morning walk on the city's southside who was charged by two big black dogs.  They got a piece fo each of her legs.  She was treated at the hospital and given rabies and tetanus shots.  And there's the pit bull and the lab duo running free on the northside.  Neighbors fear them.  Children run from them.  And the owner doesn't seem to be in control of them.  The two ran after an older couple unloading their car in the morning, chasing them inside their house.  The owner of those dogs has been warned he might lose them.

The end of summer means budget time for every city department in La Crosse...including the people who run the La Crosse Center.

Members of the Center Board could get a look at budget plans during a meeting this afternoon. If the arena has to cut spending like the other departments, Center manager Art Fahey says staffing will be high on the list of areas to reduce.  At the same time, the board will be asked to approve expenses such as way-finding signs, and a second dance floor.

Mobil Clean Up is First Step

Written by

One of the keys towards developing a key piece of real estate in La Crosse has always been the clean-up. 

 

Now that Exxon Mobil has begun the process of removing contaminated soil at the Mobil Oil site off of Copeland avenue, those development plans can really start moving forward.  

<hr id="system-readmore" />

 But with deliberation, hopes city council president Audrey Kader. 

 

 

Kader wants the 65 acre tract of land that includes the Mobil Oil site to be developed under one plan.  There's not a clear picture of when the soil clean-up at the property will be complete.
