Larry Schaffer's decision to enter a plea on murder charges came pretty quickly...

That's according to Monroe County District Attorney Dan Cary, who had made plea offers to Schaffer before a hearing on Monday. Schaffer was scheduled to be tried this month for the apparently drug-related murders of a Sparta couple in 2002. He pleads 'no contest' to the deaths, and could get a dozen or more years in prison. Cary says many key witnesses in the case either have died, or may have forgotten important details about the murders.

Garbage Regulations, Anyone?

Written by

Clearly, not everyone in La Crosse has heard about the city's new garbage regulations.  Or, at least, has skipped over some of the details of the ordinance revisions that took more than a year to develop.  One of those is the restriction against putting any electronics curbside.  That piece was written in to deal with the rash of broken tube-style televisions that have been put out with the trash in recent years.  Like this one we noted outside of an apartment complex this morning on King street.

On the same day they vote for president, La Crosse taxpayers could be asked to spend 15-million dollars to build a new north-side elementary school.

The La Crosse school board has voted to draw up referendum language which could be put on the November ballot. Board members would have to decide by August 24th whether to actually have a referendum. The immediate goal is to replace Franklin Elementary in north La Crosse, which some board members have described as 'decrepit' and structurally bad.

The referendum discussion was the main item of business on a shortened school board agenda last night. Electrical problems in the Hogan auditorium forced the board to move its meeting to a second-floor room, and board president Connie Troyanek said the building's electricity could be shut down at any time.

Feehan Likes Where State Is

Written by

To some, changes out of Madison that were made in Wisconsin the past year have been both good and bad. Senate Republican Candidate, Bill Feehan, says he has seen more good then bad. And that could be good for jobs in the future.

Feehan also says he likes the aggresive nature of Governor Scott Walker, as did many living in the state that helped Walker win a recall election.

Sell Corn Now or Later

Written by

As of this week, 48 percent of the U.S. corn crop is in poor or very poor condition. The price of corn hit a record high last week, eclipsing the eight dollar mark. It's the drought conditions in the Midwest, the worst since the 1980s that are being called the cause. Pam Jahnke with the Wisconsin Farm Report, says selling corn now can be a risk worth taking.

As for the field corn, the impacts could be widespread. It is used in cattle feed where an impact has already been felt. When feed gets more expensive, the price for a cow drops as they become more difficult to feed. Another major player Jahnke says that could take a hit is the food industry. Corn, corn syrups and starches are found in many of the foods we eat. Higher field corn prices could mean higher prices at the grocery store for consumers.

Eight people, including a two-month-old child, all managed to avoid life-threatening injuries after a head-on crash near Galesville on Saturday.

There were four persons in each vehicle involved in the late-morning collision on Highways 54 and 93. A car driven by Yeng Xiong of Onalaska crossed the center line and struck an SUV driven by a Duluth man. The two-month-old boy was a passenger in the SUV, along with an eight-year-old girl. The Galesville Fire Department was called to remove some of the victims from the vehicles.

Bishops Don't Like POLST

Written by

Wisconsin's 5 Biships are taking the Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment pretty seriously. WIZM'S Dan Deicher talked with one of the Bishops.

Bishop William Callahan says patients in nursing homes and hospitals are being asked, on an ever increasing basis, to utilize a form called POLST. He says the document, with boxes to be checked off regarding medical treatment, or the withholding of treatment, is used as an instrument for dealing with end of life decisions if the patient is incapacitated. And that's troubling.

Discussions on the end of life forms and the way they work will be the topic of continuing discussions among not only Bishops in the state...but all Catholics says Callahan.

Lakeview Gets Viewed

Written by

La Crosse County Administrator Steve O'Malley says the county board will look at the future of the Lakeview Health Center in West Salem this month. It does not meet current standards anymore and he talks about what could be done.

O' Malley says it would cost over $13 million just to restore the
building to its 1970s state, not including the additional costs to house residents elsewhere while the work is done. The board will study an initial analysis on August 16th.
