Incomplete police chase data raises suspicions

01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

The Badger State Is Toxic

Written by

Wisconsin has been ranked among the worst states when it comes to power plant pollution. New data by the Natural Resources Defense Council ranked the Badger State among the top 20 most toxic states in the country for toxic air pollution linked to electric power plants.

At the same time, the report found a 19 percent decrease in all air toxics emitted from power plants in 2010, the most recent data available, compared to 2009 levels. The welcomed drop, which also includes a 4 percent decrease in mercury emissions, results from two key factors.

John Walke, NRDC's clean air director. says the analysis judged states on how much pollution their residents are exposed to from coal and oil fired power plants.

The future of a 'park anywhere' zone during La Crosse winters is in limbo, pending a vote expected by the city council next month.

The public works department wants to end the three-year experiment, because many drivers have ignored alerts telling them to move their cars on certain nights so streets can be plowed.  UWL neighborhood resident Charley Weeth thinks it's time to end the special zone, too.  But university students are asking City Hall to continue the special zone. Drivers in the rest of La Crosse have to park on alternate sides overnight from November to the end of March.

We're still about four weeks away from Labor Day...but for some people in the tourism business, the peak travel season only lasts for another week-and-a-half.

After about the 20th of August, long family trips are scarce in some parts of the country...especially in areas where school starts before Labor Day. Dave Clements from the La Crosse Convention and Visitor Bureau has seen that trend happen. He believes schools and industry are still following patterns that existed when the country was more rural, decades ago.

 

A University of Minnesota tourism study says the number of overnight family trips, even early in the summer, drops off sharply in communities where school starts in late August.

Anthony Lee already was stuck in jail on a high cash bond, for an alleged break-in and a fight with La Crosse police last month...

Now, Lee has an eight-month jail sentence to serve for running from a cop two years ago. Before his July arrest, Lee had gone missing for nearly a year after a domestic incident. he apologized in court today for his behavior.

 

Lee's family tells Judge Elliott Levine that the 23-year-old sometimes gets into trouble when he goes off medication.

Doyle says his work record this past year stands alone against any opponent he will have. He will find out who that person is after next Tuesday's primary where Bruce Evers faces Kevin Hintz.

The Obama administration has been accused of intimidating defense contractors and seeking to hide job losses from pending cuts to the Pentagon’s budget in order to help the president’s re-election campaign. Double that with accusations of secret meetings and emails.....RNC Chairman, Reince Priebus, says it's time it all stopped.

Republicans pointed to guidance issued last week by the Department of Labor that said it would be inappropriate for defense firms to issue layoff notices to employees before the election due to the pending cuts.

Alternate Side Parking Experiment May Survive After All

Written by
La Crosse's great alternate side parking experiment might not be dead after all. The city council has voted to reconsider getting rid of a controversial ordinance that allowed for a special area around UWL that allowed cars to stay on one side of the road during the winter with drivers only having to move after a special notification from the city. Problem was, nobody moved the cars. After two years, the experiment was largely considered a failure. But the council will take another look at the idea in a month to see whether there's any way to make the plan work that hasn't been tried already.
