No charges yet in a campfire accident that left four children burned at an area campground back in June.   Houston county sheriff Doug Ely says he's getting close to wrapping up the investigation into the June 29th fire at Money Creek Haven Campground.  A man apparently dumped some sort of accelerant onto a smoldering campfire, causing the fuel container to explode and burning the children.  Four year-old Chloe Langen suffered the worst of the burns and flirted with death a few times before stabilizing at a burn center in St Paul.  Five year-old Annabelle Heyer was also burned badly and was flown to a hospital in Madison.

Lax Couple Facing Drug Warehousing Charges

Written by

A professed gang member and his wife face serious drug charges, including warehousing drugs, following a bust at their La Crosse home.

Raymond and Nicole Lewis are suspected of selling crack, ecstasy, and other drugs. Raymond tells police he used to belong to the Gangster Disciples. The district attorney's office says Nicole Lewis was very active in drug dealing out of her home, and has even conducted 'counter-surveillance' of police in her neighborhood.

Raymond Lewis also may be charged with injuring an officer's hand during the Wednesday arrests on Mormon Coulee Road.

The police chief thinks it's a good idea...and so does the postmaster.

But a proposal to ban pit bulls in Caledonia is drawing some protests...often from people outside the community. The city attorney, Tim Murphy, is searching for precedents.  A few months ago, a pit bull reportedly killed a smaller dog in Caledonia. Council members say the reactions they're hearing from residents come down on both sides of a ban.

Seems as though the two escapees from Black Rivers Falls brutalized a 71 year old convenience store clerk before their arrest Wednesday morning in Florida. Video tape shows James Misleveck and James Newman entering the store around 9 Sunday night, grabbing the clerk by his shirt from across the counter. The second suspect holding a knife, went around to the back of the counter where the clerk was standing. He opened the cash register and the second suspect grabbed the drawer from inside the register.

 

 

The first suspect also came around the counter, grabbed the man and threw him to the ground. He then proceeded to hit him several times in his head and stomach while he lay on the ground.  The second suspect, holding the register drawer set it down out of view of the camera. He then came back to where the clerk was, kicked the victim in the head and struck him several more times. The victim was initially transported to a hospital with serious injuries. Charges are pending in Hillsborough County, Florida now as well.

The driver was slowing down to a crawl, stopping at unmarked intersections, and spinning his wheels...

Those are the clues that a Sparta policeman used to pull over Paul Olson on suspicion of drunk driving two years ago. Olson claimed that the cop had no good reason to have him arrested, and tried to have his second O-W-I conviction overturned as a result. A Wisconsin appeals court disagrees with Olson. The court upholds the conviction, noting that the officer also smelled alcohol on Olson, heard him slurring his speech, and watched him walk unsteadily.

Too late to sue a Minnesota priest for clergy abuse...

The Minnesota Supreme Court makes that ruling in dismissing a lawsuit filed against a former priest with the Diocese of Winona, Thomas Adamson. James Keenan of Savage, Minnesota says Adamson abused him in the 1980's, and he just remembered the abuse recently. The high court says the statute of limitations expired before Keenan filed his suit. The diocese supports the court ruling, arguing that repressed memories are not generally reliable for making charges of priest abuse.
