Written by

A little more background on the prison that two inmates walked away from 2 weeks ago. The Black River Falls Correctional Facility accepts inmates with 6 months left on their prison terms and some actually were used to assist in the flood clean up in La Crosse a few years ago. Superintendent, David Andraskas. Says they get inmates ready to go back into the public.

Bond has been set in Trempealeau County for a group of drug suspects, including multiple members of the same family.

Todd Wittenberg, Zachary Wittenberg, Jeffrey Ellenz, and Sara McConnell all need five thousand dollars cash to get out of jail. They were all accused of heroin possession, after being nabbed in drug raids in the Galesville area last Friday. No charges filed yet against Joshua Wittenberg, who recently served jail time for drugs. Ellenz is charged with maintaining a drug house in Galesville. And McConnell is a young mother who has been ordered to have no unsupervised contact with her child.

Kids Count OK

Written by
Wisconsin ranks 10th in education, 15th in economic well being, and 18th for both health and family values. Those numbers coming from the latest Kids County nationwide report. Some stronger numbers in La Crosse County says Children and Family Center President, Michael Boehm.



Boehm says one number that sticks out negatively across the state is the percentage of teens abusing illegal drugs and alcohol. Nine percent of the state s teens abuse those substances. That has stayed the same, while the national abuse rate has dropped to around seven percent.

District Looks Good With Hirings

Written by

The La Crosse School District has taken a pretty good hit the past 2 years with an influx of teachers either retiring or resigning from the district. But Human Resources Director, Steve Salerno, says they are filling the holes with bright, young staff and should be good to go come the fall.

Salerno says there are one or two more holes to fill before school starts but feels confident a staff of 100% will be on board by that time.

Drought IS Going To Cost You

Written by

Famers are being forced to harvest their corn earlier and earlier this year and they are not coming in good. Especially in one neighboring Wisconsin state.

Pam Jahnke of the Wisconsin Farm Report say you may not eat much corn directly, but it is important to realize that corn or corn syrup is just about in everything these days. Just look at your food labels. In the United States today, approximately 75 percent of all processed foods contain corn. So a huge rise in the price of corn is going to be felt all over the supermarket.

Benefit for Burn Victim This Saturday

Written by

Healing can take all kinds of forms.   For four year-old Chloe Langen, severely burned in a campfire accident in June at the Money Creek haven campground near Houston, recovery will be a long road of skin grafts and sedation.  And then there's the rift caused by the man who caused the explosion that badly burned Chloe and five year-old Annabelle Heyer.  The man is apparently related to Heyer.  Healing that one will be more difficult, says Chloe's aunt Barb Kappauf

 

 

Kappauf has organized a fundraiser for Chloe and her family on Saturday.  She says it will involve much of the small city of Hokah from morning until midnight.
