Tens of Thousands in Fire Fees Collected

Written by

There was plenty of grousing when a vast list of new fees went into effect for the city of La Crosse at the beginning of the year.  But those fees have meant a surge in revenue for some departments.  The fire department, which began collecting new fees for everything from fire pits to false alarms on January first, has padded the city's coffers with tens of thousands of dollars.  The recreational fire pit permit alone has generated 23 thousand dollars.  A fire inspection fee for businesses has brought in 67 thousand dollars so far this year.  Those fees can range from about a hundred dollars for the smallest businesses to several hundred dollars.

An apparent fight over growing marijuana may have led to a shooting last night in Jackson County...

A 23-year-old man has been treated for a bullet wound in the back, and an older man is accused of the shooting. Sixty-one-year-old Michael Charles of the town of Franklin is being held without bond in the Jackson County Jail, on a charge of endangering safety. A 22-caliber rifle was seized at the Charles home near Taylor, along with some marijuana. Sheriff's officers say Charles was upset with the shooting victim for going to a place where marijuana was being grown.

Written by

As the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse campus comes alive with students once again, one looming thought crosses Chancellor, Joe Gow's mind.

Gow says he and other local college heads met recently with La Crosse Police interim Chief, Rob Abraham about the growing heroine problem in the city. The main concern says Gow is not on the campus but off campus where people rob and steal to get money to buy the drug.

Written by

Governor Scott Walker's recall win this year shows that the republican numbers are there for the state to cast their votes towards the Romney/Ryan ticket in November. That's according to Matt Rhodes with the Romney campaign. Rhodes also said over a million people were fooled 4 years ago.

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.
