Does The NFL Support The Vikings

Written by

Doesn't sound like the NFL has much faith in the state of Minnesota supporting a football team. Just ask Governor Mark Dayton.

Dayton spoke to the media after a closed door conversation last week with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Pittsburgh Steelers President Art Rooney. The pair were there to try and get lawmakers to move along a stadium bill.

2-27 year olds were jailed this week after a large scale drug bust in Onalaska this week.

Crash Near Holmen Kills Two Young Men

Written by

We're learning more about the rollover crash that killed two young men near Holmen...

Sheriff's officers heard about the accident at around 6 o'clock this morning, but it may have happened during the night. The passenger was thrown from the car, while the driver was pinned inside. Both men were 21, and sources indicate they were recent graduates of Holmen High School.  The car went off County Highway X-X and rolled into a field.

One more delay for Bryan Stanley...

The commitment hearing for the man who killed three people at an Onalaska church has been delayed until next month, because of information received by Stanley's lawyer on short notice. Attorney Tom Hayes says he got a doctor's report on Stanley late yesterday afternoon, and he has not had time to review the report with his client. Stanley was sent back to the Mendota hospital last month after experiencing 'anxiety.' He has been living in the area for three years, after spending more than 20 years in the state hospital because of the church murders.

The interest rates on federal student loans will double this summer, unless Congress votes to block that from happening...

A House vote planned for Friday would shift money from the Obama health care plan to the student loan system. The man in charge of the U-W system, president Kevin Reilly, says high student debt is 'intolerable,' and he wants colleges to find more ways to offer financial aid to students.

 

Reilly's leadership of the university system is appreciated by the U-W-L student senate. That group honored Reilly on Wednesday with its annual award for advocates of higher education.

La Crosse County Nearly the Best in Unemployment Rate

Written by
La Crosse county has climbed back into the state's number two position for unemployment rates.   The state's Department of Workforce Development measures La Crosse county's unemployment rate for March at 5.6%.  That's four tenths of a percent lower than the month before and seven tenths lower than March of last year.   That puts the county just behind Dane county with the lowest unemployment rate in the state.  The state says the La Crosse metro area has managed to add just four hundred jobs since March of last year.  The state as a whole has shed nearly 24 thousand jobs in the same time period.
