It could be the official end of a parking experiment in the U-W-L neighborhood...

The La Crosse city council will be asked to vote next month on an ordinance to dissolve the special rules for alternate side parking in the university neighborhood during the winter. In the last three years, City Hall would send out alerts in that part of town, only on nights when the streets would be plowed. Only 11 alerts were issued during the five-month period of winter parking last year...and many people didn't bother to move their cars on those nights, anyway.

Dual Beat Down Gets Man 15 Years In Prison

Written by

15 years in prison. That's the sentence a La Crosse man recieved today for beating his girlfriend and her friend to the point of permanent injuries. Judge Scott Horne told 58 year old Daniel Stoddard that this was one of the most sever incidents of domestic violence he has seen short of a homicide.

Stoddard was drunk on whiskey back on July 29th of last year when he attacked the two women in La Crosse. Stoddard accused his girlfriend of cheating on him then punched her friend in the head. The woman lost consciousness and woke up to find him kicking his girlfriend. He then kicked the friend in the head and punched her repeatedly after noticing she regained consciousness. Stoddard also hit the woman in the head with a frying pan.

Stoddard’s girlfriend ended up with a brain injury, skull fracture, lacerations, puncture wounds and bruises. Her suffered head wounds that required 32 staples and a broken hand among other injuries.

A temporary closure of Highway 35 at Genoa today is being postponed until noon.

The road will be closed near the Dairyland power plant, so spent nuclear fuel can be transported to a storage site down the road. The fuel has been kept at the main plant in Genoa since the nuclear reactor there was shut down in 1987, as a cost-cutting measure.

Written by

What started out as a couple of people calling Jackson County saying they got sick from swimming in Lake Wazee last week, has turrned into something they have never seen before. Public Health Nurse, Christine Hovell, explains.

The numbers of people sick......at least 170. She says the lake is closed until more testing can be done next week. In the meantime, if you are fishing or scuba diving in the area.......she says wash your hands before and after the activity.

After an overwhelming vote on Tuesday night, it appears the La Crosse City Council will easily authorize a committee study of a budget consultant plan at its meeting on Thursday.

The Committee of the Whole amended the resolution, to remove language committing 125-thousand dollars for a consultant search. Council president Audrey Kader will be on the study committee. She defends much of the spending that city government must do every year.

 

Critics of the consultant plan have speculated that such an expert might be a substitute for the city administrator rejected in an April referendum...or that a consultant would recommend firing Mayor Matt Harter.

Thirty-third time's the charm?

House Republicans have voted for the 33rd time to defeat the 'Obamacare' law since President Obama signed the health care bill over two years ago. Five Democrats joined with the Republicans to oppose Obamacare...but La Crosse's Ron Kind was not one of them. Kind has supported the Obama bill on every one of those House votes, but says some changes could be made.

 

Kind argues that many individual parts of the health care law have gotten broad bi-partisan support.
