Gow Reacts To Penn State Ruling

Written by

Penn State loses 10 football scholarships per year and the ability to play in a bowl game for four years. It also gets fined $60 million, and all football wins from 1998-2011 are being vacated. All due to the event surrounding former coach, Jerry Sandusky and the child abuse scandal. We talked with Penn State Alum and UW- La Crosse Chancellor, Joe Gow, about what the trickle down effect is on his campus.

Penn State must also adhere to new rules and policies put in place by the NCAA and will be put on probation for 5 years.

Fugitives Seem to be Heading South

Written by
Where a couple of fugitives from Black River Falls wind up is anybody's guess.  But the latest reported sightings of James Misleveck and James Newman have them in the Hillsboro/Elroy area near the Juneau and Vernon county lines.  The two men walked away from a minimum security facility in Black River Falls on Tuesday night.  Since then, it's been a string of car thieving, kidnapping, gun stealing and, at this point, somehow eluding police.  Police say the men should be considered armed and dangerous.  They're driving a stolen black 1996 Chrysler Concord.

Two men who have worked on the expansion at Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse are out of the hospital, after separate accidents.

Each man fell at least 15 feet from scaffolding at the construction site on Wednesday, but the two falls were not related. Gundersen Lutheran spokesman Chris Stauffer says safety inspectors are still looking into the situation.

 

Stauffer admits there was confusion among emergency responders, when they received two calls within five minutes about falls at the hospital site.

It wasn't a popular purchase with everybody on French Island...

But plans are moving ahead to transfer the Campbell Town Library from the town hall to a former church on Lakeshore Drive. The town board approved the 112-thousand dollar deal in March. Now, town leaders including clerk Chad Hawkins are working on ways to raise money to remodel the church, including a fundraiser next month.

 

One reason the town board used to justify the library expansion was to make Campbell self-sufficient, to avoid being annexed to the city of La Crosse.

A new facility for end-of-life care and assisted living is headed to Green Island...

Construction begins in a few weeks for the 30-million dollar Eagle Crest South, on land along 7th Street provided by Gundersen Lutheran. Todd Wilson, the CEO of Bethany Lutheran Homes, says the existing Eagle Crest North complex in Onalaska will set a good example for the new hospice center.

 

More than 150 apartments for seniors and hospice patients will be located at Eagle Crest. Wilson says Gundersen and Mayo had started planning a similar facility, but the project ran into 'difficulties.'  Eagle Crest is scheduled to open late next year.

Houston County's loss is Duluth's gain...

Then again, you might say Houston County isn't really 'losing' over a million dollars in emergency relief money. The county is returning that money to the state of Minnesota because the cash wasn't needed. It was left over from about three million dollars provided by the state after severe flooding in the summer of 2007. Last week, the county board approved a state request to have the money returned, so it can be used for flood relief in Duluth.
