Tammy Versus Tommy.....Expect What

Written by

So now that the primary is out of the way........what can we expect from the two remaining senate candidates, Tommy Thompson and Tammy Baldwin? Shouldn't be too bad says UW-La Crosse Political Professor, Joe Heim.

Heim says though you can expect non mud-slinging ad's, you can expect a lot of ad's with a lot of outside money.....just like the recall's.

Lakeview On County Agenda Tonight

Written by

La Crosse county needs to decide whether to spend on improving infrastructure in the current Lakeview Health center or build a facility that would be more cost efficient and better able to adapt to client needs. County Administrator, Steve O'Malley.

He says it would take an estimated $12 million to $13 million just to restore the building to its 1970s state and a three building facility would cost about $31.6 million, but would be eligible for Medicaid funds both for construction and operating costs. The board meets tonight.

Parking Lot Voter Suppression Plot Unraveled

Written by

Seal-coating, yes.  Voter suppression, probably not.  We had to ask the question of the Onalaska Town clerk after getting this call (on La Crosse Talk PM) yesterday evening claiming some dastardly deeds were underway at the town's polling place

 

 

We confirmed with the town clerk Melissa Erdman that, yes, in fact, the parking lot at the town hall was being chipped and sealed during voting yesterday.  But Town of Onalaska votes in the town shop, which had an open parking lot.  Erdman says maybe three voters had to wait a few minutes while a truck backed out of the town hall parking lot but, otherwise, voter access to the polling place was unhindered.  The parking lot work was scheduled for Monday but was pushed back a day because of rain.

A murder suspect in La Crosse was supposed to go on trial next week...but he enters a 'guilty' plea instead.

Pao Vue could get 40 years behind bars when he's sentenced in October for his role in the shooting death of Sara Hougom. Pao said in court today that he was the driver who brought Kong Vue to Hougom's La Crosse apartment building to commit a robbery. And he claims he never got out of the car at that address.

 

Kong Vue has admitted to shooting Hougom when he spotted her in the apartment as he attempted to steal her purse. While in jail, Pao Vue had told other prisoners that he was the actual gunman, instead of Kong Vue.

Concussions Looked At Logan High School

Written by

The big talk over the summer when it came to youth football is the ever growing cuncussion rate, from Pop Warner to the pro's. At Logan High School, precautions are already taking place to lessen the impact of the head injuries. And Steve Hole, A.D., says it starts away from the football field.

Hole says they are going to look at reducing the number of contact hours in practice and reducing the risk of head contact in practice. As for parents keeping their kids away from the sport, it's not happening at Logan where their numbers increased this year.
