It wasn't much heroin that La Crosse police found in a van during a traffic stop.  But it was enough to charge a couple guys in the van with dealing.   52 year-old Darnell Hamilton and 46 year-old Dennis Mickelson, both from La Crosse, have been charged with heroin dealing.   Cops say they got suspicious when they pulled the van over and the two guys started getting fidgety.  They say Ralph the drug dog sniffed out the van and hit in several spots.   Lots of hidden compartments in the van, say police.  But they didn't have to look far to find two baggies of heroin and a bag of crack.  Those were just sitting on the floor in the front.

Alerts Coming To Your Cell

Written by

When bad weather hits your town, weather radios are a direct link to the best information coming straight from the National Weather Service. But only 5-10 percent of Americans have a weather radio. So the government is working on a new and more modern way to get people critical weather information. To your cell phones. Dan Baumgart is with the National Weather Service in La Crosse.

Starting sometime in June, emergency alerts will be sent directly from the National Weather Service to your cell phone for free. Baumgart says the NWS will only send the most critical alerts: tornado warnings, flash floods, blizzard warnings, and ice storm warnings.

Semi Roll Shuts Down Highway Sunday

Written by
High winds knocked over a semi-tractor trailer going down the highway during a thunder storm in western Wisconsin's Trempealeau County Sunday.

The Trempealeau County Sheriff's Department says the resulting crash left the semi stretched across a bridge, causing the closure of State Road 93 between Eau Claire and La Crosse for about two and a half hours Sunday afternoon.  The driver of the semi sustained minor injuries but refused treatment. His truck's trailer unit was empty.

Parts of southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin are forecast to possibly suffer severe weather Sunday night into Memorial Day.

POT DOWN.................TALK OVER

As the La Crosse Central robed choir sings, I Love My Country, veterans and members of the La Crosse Community remember those who have lost their lives serving our country and the vets who are still here with us. The Memorial Day observance doesn’t just bring vets closer together, it’s a community event with a long standing tradition. 90 years now. And it's been a tradition for La Crosse School Board member, Dave Rudolph.



There will be a Memorial Day parade in downtown La Crosse on Monday starting at 9 a.m. It will start on King and 5th streets and go to the Oak Grove Cemetery.
