The goal is to help one company start a mine in Wisconsin...and apparently, that can only happen if Republicans regain control of the Wisconsin Senate in November.

That message comes from Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, suggesting Gogebic Mining won't get help in setting up shop in the state while Democrats run the Senate. Onalaska state rep Steve Doyle says it's a 'mistake' for WMC to suggest that it only wants to negotiate with one party.

 

Doyle says the political atmosphere in Madison remains 'toxic,' with both sides pointing fingers at each other.  Gogebic cancelled plans for a Wisconsin mine this year, when a bill designed to help the company failed to pass in Madison.

Police in La Crosse have been concerned about the growing use of heroin within the city...

But the drug also is finding its way to rural areas. Five persons from the Galesville area now face charges of possessing or delivering heroin, following two separate drug busts on Friday. The La Crosse County sheriff's department was among the outside agencies brought in on the searches by Trempealeau County. At least two of the suspects have past drug arrests on their records. One of them, Joshua Wittenberg, arrested in the town of Gale search, was convicted last year for drug possession, and spent some time in jail.

When Kong Vue goes to trial in La Crosse for the Sara Hougom murder, tapes of police interviewing him will be allowed as evidence.

That ruling comes today in court, despite arguments from Vue's attorney that cops pressured his client into a confession and would not let him leave the interview room. Attorney Mark Lawton questioned the police and special agents today, to show that they coerced Vue into admitting that he shot Hougom.  But Judge Todd Bjerke says he also saw the tapes, and did not find verbal pressure or coercion on the part of the cops. Kong Vue has told police that he shot Hougom when he went into her apartment to steal a purse. Vue's uncle, Pao Choua Vue, is also charged in the murder, and he goes on trial in late August.

Golf Courses Feeling The Heat Of The Drought

Written by

We have all heard about the effects the summer drought has had on people's lawns and farmers fields. But what about area golf courses? Tom Ceresa, owner of the Maple Grove Country Club, says this has been an interesting summer so far.

He says the course itself has held up pretty well as they have gone from watering 6 hours a day to about 13. And tee times are being seen as early as 6am.
