No Frac Sand Damage Here

Written by

A frac sand mine in Monroe County has almost eliminated any concerns about trucks carrying away sand and damaging roads. Highway Commissioner Jack Dittmar talks about the site on Highway 21 between Sparta and Tomah.

And that's been a main concern to some counties that have placed moratoriums on the mining. That and effects on land and groundwater and health impacts on nearby residents.

More Vets Going To College In Minnesota

Written by

The numbers of returning veterans going to college in Minnesota under a newly revamped GI bill is growing. Steve Frantz is with the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.

Frantz says although the new GI Bill might not result in the sort of sweeping social change that was ushered in more than half a century ago by the sheer numbers of returning vets, it has the potential to transform lives of young service members and their families.

Boys Being Boys With Stuff Stolen from Cars

Written by
A couple of boys on the northside of La Crosse may need to find something more constructive to do.  Cops say they found the two 14 year-old middle schoolers scampering around at night last week, breaking into cars and stealing all sorts of stuff.  Police recovered a couple of GPS devices, a camera, some fishing lures, a cell phone, three packs of cigarettes, lighters, lots of change and several other things.  One of the boys was also carrying a knife.  Cops took one boy home to his parents, the other he had to drop off with an older sibling because mom's not around and dad's traveling in the nation of Laos.

Police Bust Rip Snorter of a 420 Pot Party

Written by
Getting baked meant doing some actual baking for an accused drug dealer in La Crosse on Friday.   Friday was 4-20, known in marijuana circles as a kind of holiday.  Police say it was a 4-20 party that they busted at about three o'clock Friday morning.  Through a thick, marijuana haze in the apartment, cops noted several bongs and pipes still smoking, along with pot cupcakes, two kinds of pot cookies, and loaves of bread with pot baked inside.  Six pounds of baked goods in all.  In a bedroom safe, they found about a half pound of pot and about 4400 hundred dollars in cash.  Several people got tickets, three guys arrested including 21 year-old Kyle Murphy who faces serious charges for drug dealing/

Are you good at saying 'no' to junk-mail offers?

La Crosse ranks high on a list of U-S cities where people take steps to keep catalogs and other unwanted mail from stuffing up their mailboxes. A company called 'Catalog Choice' helps consumers stop junk-mail delivery, similar to how a no-call list is supposed to halt phone calls from telemarketers. The company put La Crosse on its first-ever monthly list of cities that are 'mail-efficient'...including San Francisco and Seattle.

The fight over lighted signs resumes for another round in Onalaska this week...

Opponents of electronic billboards called a news conference in an Onalaska neighborhood today, with staffers from the Olympus sign company standing by and watching. At one point, an Olympus employee disagreed with a citizen's claim that 'everybody' in the neighborhood is against the billboards, and began arguing with the local activist who organized the event.

 

The Onalaska Plan Commission has a public hearing tomorrow night on rules to regulate electric signs. A similar hearing last December at the Omni Center drew about 200 people.

Storm Damage Progress

Written by

(AP) Most of the storm debris and downed trees have been cleared from tornado-ravaged Thurman.  Volunteers have been working since last weekend's storm to help the town of 229 get back to normal. The tornado ripped through the town, damaging most homes but causing only a few minor injuries. Mayor Rod Umphreys Jr. says most roads were clear and most debris removed after a hundred volunteers turned out Saturday. The town has been inundated with volunteers since the storm, some coming from as far as Wisconsin and Montana.
