Written by

New full body scanners have been in place at the La Crosse Airport for several months now. They were one of the first in the state to get the new techonology. And interim Airport manager, Clint Torp, says they offer something passengers actually like.

About 600 units have been installed in 140 airports around the country, including five airports in Wisconsin.

Eric Koula openly denies killing his parents...but he has admitted to other things at his La Crosse murder trial.

Koula was emotional on the stand Monday when he apologized for sending a threatening note to himself after the murders, to keep police from suspecting his teenage son.

 

Koula told defense attorney Keith Belzer that he didn't tell police about signing his father's name to a 50-thousand dollar check, because he didn't expect them to believe him.  Koula is charged with forgery for cashing that check.

 

Koula insists that he did shop at Bridgeview Plaza at about the same time his parents were shot on May 21st, 2010...even though security cameras do not show him at that location.

UW-L Fire Update

Written by

The weekend fire in UW-La Crosse’s Wittich Hall has been ruled an accidental electrical fire. Firefighters were called to the second oldest academic building on campus around 10:45 p.m. Saturday. The fire started in and was contained to a basement storage area, but there is extensive smoke damage throughout the building. The fire started near a power strip on the wall, according to La Crosse Fire Department investigators.

State fire investigators are expected to tour the building Tuesday. Once state officials have reviewed the site, service companies will begin the fire recovery and cleaning process. At this time, Bob Hetzel, UW-L Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance, says they have no timetable of getting back into the building.

Hetzel says the center will temporarily run from Mitchell Hall. The Student Affairs Administration Department was scheduled to move from Wittich to Morris Hall at the end of June. In the meantime, that department and other offices will temporarily be housed in nearby Graff Main Hall.

Suspects Sought in La Crosse Robberies

Written by

Police are still looking for suspects in robberies and attempts reported in La Crosse this week-end.  There was the woman who was attacked when she went to her car at four in the morning on King street downtown.  She got hurt when the thief stomped on her foot and slammed her head into her car but he ran off before stealing anything.  Another guy took a little time to report a robbery that happened in the middle of last week.  He says he was attacked by about ten guys after a confrontation downtown at bartime.  They got his phone and some cash and gave him a good beating in return.  A couple with children were attacked in their southside home on Sunday evening and fought with the home invaders before driving them away and calling police.

New garbage rules for La Crosse might not fix the city's curbside trash problem.  Livable Neighborhoods president Charlie Weeth is among those who question whether the just-approved regulations will achieve promised results.  he suggests the benefits of mandates for more dumpsters at rentals might have been oversold a bit

 

 

Weeth says if the volume of garbage is too big for a dumpster then there will still be messes.  As there will be if scavengers continue to dumpster-dive and people use the dumpsters illegally.

Written by

La Crosse county health employees are working overtime to tackle a growing pertussis problem.  The county has 77 confirmed cases of whooping cough since the beginning of last month.  Reasons for the outbreak?

 

 

Traci Lien is a county public health nurse.  She says the majority of the confirmed cases are among teenagers.  But older adults lacking booster vaccinations and younger children are very susceptible, too

Will Tuition Increase Hurt Enrollments

Written by

Will the latest tuition increase across the board hamper efforts by the state colleges and universities to get students from out of state here? Good question says UW-L Chancellor, Joe Gow.

The 5.5% increase approved two weeks ago will take another $400 from students attending UW-La Crosse....higher at the Milwaukee and Madison campuses.

Walker Weekly Address

Written by

Governor Scott Walker wasted no time in his weekly republican address Saturday, sending out a message that Wisconsin is now going in the right direction after a contentious year.

In his address....he said that the nation should take a look at the changes he has made here...when electing it's next President. And Barack Obama is not making the right changes.
