Many bars and restaurants fought against smoke-free dining laws for Wisconsin...

But a new statewide survey shows that people working at those businesses feel healthier now because of the two-year-old tobacco ban. La Crosse County health educator Judi Zabel says restaurant and bar staffers have said they're happy not to go home with smoky-smelling clothes.  The survey also shows that only one-third of Wisconsin residents are now exposed to smoke outside the home. The percentage was over 50 per cent when the law took effect.

No open burning in Onalaska, for now...

The Onalaska Fire Department has issued a ban on open fires in the city and parts of surrounding towns, until further notice. One measure of the fire danger in Onalaska is at its highest level. All of La Crosse County is within a 'very high' danger zone for fires, according to the Wisconsin DNR, while almost all of the state that's south of La Crosse County is at a 'high' risk level.

Chief Selection Made. Announcement Soon

Written by
A new police chief has been picked for La Crosse.  Not sure who it is yet.   The La Crosse police and fire commission met this morning to select a new chief for the city.  Commission member Doug Happel says, although the commission voted unanimously on one of the three candidates for the job, that pick cannot be revealed until all three have been notified and an offer accepted.  Happel says that process could take a couple of days.  But could be complete as soon as the end of the day today.   In the running for the job: Current interim police chief Rob Abraham, Onalaska chief, Jeffrey Trotnic and Waukesha police captain, Ronald Tischer.

It's up to the state justice department now, to decide whether the La Crosse County administrator should be charged with a crime...

The La Crosse Tea Party says its complaint about administrator Steve O'Malley has been referred by the La Crosse County D-A to the Justice Department, to avoid conflict of interest. The county ethics board did not punish O'Malley for his efforts to pass a La Crosse city referendum calling for the hiring of a city administrator. Opponents of the referendum claim the failed issue was an attempt to take powers away from Mayor Matt Harter...and they say e-mails and other documents prove that O'Malley broke a county ordinance against trying to seek donations for a political campaign. The ethics board did not rule on that specific ordinance.

Two La Crosse County prisoners will be tried for attacking an inmate who allegedly ratted on a murder suspect.

Pao Choua Vue and Houaka Yang are pleading 'not guilty' to the cellblock beating of Lucas Brickl. It was Brickl who told investigators that Pao Vue's cousin bragged in jail about shooting Sara Hougom of La Crosse.  Brickl says two prisoners hit him in the head during the August 14th attack.  One of the suspects claimed he wanted to beat Brickl for being a 'snitch.'
