Public works director talks ongoing projects in La Crosse
The city of La Crosse and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation haven't exactly seen eye to eye lately. In fact, the dispute over the best design for the renovation of...
2-27 year olds were jailed this week after a large scale drug bust in Onalaska this week. On Monday, Onalaska Police and the La Crosse County Emergency Response Team served a search warrant at 957 11th Ave South in Onalaska, the apartment of Kevin Jones and Shayla Hermanson. K-9 Units from both the Onalaska Police Department and La Crosse County were brought in to execute the search. The search yielded $13 thousand 1145 grams of marijuana and 430 grams of K2. Also discovered was Meth, Ecstasy, Bath Salts and various drug paraphernalia. All of this was seized along with a vehicle owned by Jones. Jones and Hermanson, both Onalaska residents, were taken into custody and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, warehousing, possession of K2, MDMA, Meth, Bath Salts and possession of prescription drugs without a prescription. Both Jones and Hermanson were charged with a total of 3 Felonies and 6 Misdemeanors as a result of the warrant. They are both currently out on bond pending trial.
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.
A fatal crash is being investigated near Holmen this morning.
The sheriff's department tells us the accident on La Crosse County Road X-X was reported around 6 a-m. They have not confirmed any deaths in the crash.
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.
No more casinos no matter how much money they bring in. That's the sediment of some Minnesota lawmakers who are trying to get a bill passed to build a new Vikings stadium. Winona Republican Senator Jeremy Miller says a proposal he is working on with the White Earth Tribe would do just that.....give the state money......$400 million worth. In exchange for a casino.
It will take 68 votes in the House and 34 in the Senate to pass a Vikings bill. But the plan probably needs at least a few more than the bare minimum so no one could be cast as the deciding vote come campaign season.
'We'll keep at it'...
That message comes from Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald, confirming that the search for a missing Onalaska boater continues at the lake where the man was last seen.
Fitzgerald says Red Cedar Lake was dragged over the weekend in the search for 50-year-old Todd Gordon. Dogs also were used, and a deputy was scheduled to check the lake again today. Gordon was seen boating on April 6th, the day his empty boat turned up on the lakeshore.
