An area man who claims he's not paranoid learns that a state appeals court has ruled against him...

The court sides with a Trempealeau County judge in calling for a man known as 'Charles O.' to be committed. Charles appealed his commitment, challenging the opinions of doctors that he's dangerous when he's off his medication. But the appeals judges agreed with the doctors, who studied Charles and testified that if he doesn't take his meds, he stops working and doesn't take care of himself.

Police Arrest Two in Hougom Murder

Written by

 

La Crosse police say two men will be charged for the murder of Sara Hougom at her southside apartment back in March.  They say Kong Vue and Pao Choua Vue--La Crosse men and members of a gang--have been arrested for both the murder of Hougom and for a drive-by shooting on the northside just minutes before the March 26th killing.  Police say Pao Choua Vue was being held in the La Crosse jail for something else.  They just located Kong Vue yesterday in Milwaukee.  They say Kong Vue admitted to both the drive-by shooting on Island street and the shooting of Sara Hougom.   Apparently, the killing of Hougom was a random act.  Her door was open and the two men were simply looking for a purse to steal.

Judge Says Occupy Madison Campers Must Leave

Written by

(AP) A Dane County judge has ordered an encampment that began as an Occupy Madison demonstration to leave a city-owned lot. The judge denied a temporary restraining order that would have prevented city officials from removing the campers. They have until noon Tuesday to leave the site. The Occupy Madison movement began last October as a demonstration against economic inequality and social injustice. But the encampment has evolved into a gathering spot of mostly homeless people. About 50 to 60 people have occupied the site. Mayor Paul Soglin says the encampment has become a haven for drug use, assault and property crime. Soglin says the encampment will be treated as a hazardous waste site during cleanup because of reports of needles and bodily fluids.

Supreme Court Asked To Hear Prayer Death Case

Written by

(AP) Appeals judges are recommending the Wisconsin Supreme Court hear the case of a Wisconsin couple convicted of reckless homicide in the 2008 death of their daughter. Dale and Leilani Neumann prayed for their daughter's recovery instead of getting medical help for complications of undiagnosed diabetes. The Neumanns were convicted in separate trials in 2009. The Neumanns argued their actions regarding their 11-year-old daughter, Madeline, were permitted under Wisconsin law. In a recommendation released Tuesday, the appeals court in Wausau says that since the case is unique in Wisconsin, it would be appropriate for the Supreme Court to hear it. The jail terms were delayed pending their appeals.

Minnesota Lawmakers Still Hard At It

Written by

(AP) Gov. Mark Dayton says there are still ``significant differences'' in a tax policy bill that's become a linchpin of negotiations to end the legislative session. Dayton is pushing for a vote on the $1 billion Vikings stadium project, which he says will create jobs. Republicans are using his desire for a stadium to get what they want on tax changes and in borrowing for state construction. Dayton says he asked Republican leaders to drop their goal of freezing property taxes for business. He says they haven't responded.

U.S Senate Candidate Stumps In La Crosse

Written by

It's a busy week of campaigning in western Wisconsin for one of the Republican U.S. Senate candidates. The first stop for Mark Neumann's campaign was in La Crosse this morning.  One of his main goals is to scale back on what he calls an unconstitutional level of federal rules and regulations, but his focus today was balancing the federal budget. Neumann said he is a both a fiscal and social conservative who would vote to repeal Obamacare. His five-year plan to balance the federal budget includes eliminating or cutting back on 150 government programs.

 

 

Neumann is part of a large crowd in the fight for Herb Kohl's seat. Other candidates are former governor Tommy Thompson, Representative Jeff Fitzgerald, businessman Eric Hovde, and chiropractor Kip Smith. The democrats have produced one candidate, congresswoman Tammy Baldwin. Neumann served Wisconsin's first district in the House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999. Neumann ran against Governor Walker in the 2010 election, and in 1998, lost out to Russ Feingold, the incumbent senator.

Will Wisconsin workers be safer with a different governor?

AFSCME union director Marty Beil has no doubt that they will. In La Crosse this weekend, Beil told the audience at a ceremony for workers killed on the job that Governor Scott Walker's actions against unions are increasing the risk of injury for many corporate employees.  Beil claims that Walker is leaving many employees in Wisconsin with 'no voice in the workplace.' He also says actions decreasing government openness have 'cast us into darkness.'
