LA CROSSE POLICE ARE PLENTY TICKED OFF AT THIS GUY...
A 22-YEAR-OLD COLLEGE STUDENT IS BEING CHEWED OUT PUBLICLY BY CHIEF ED KONDRACKI FOR GETTING DRUNK AND CHOOSING TO WALK HOME FROM 3RD STREET LATE SATURDAY MORNING. THE COPS SPENT HOURS LOOKING FOR HIM, UNTIL HE TURNED UP DRUNK AND ASLEEP INSIDE SOMEBODY ELSE'S CAR ON ZEISLER STREET...ABOUT A MILE FROM DOWNTOWN. THE CHIEF SAYS THE STUDENT FAILED TO ANSWER ABOUT 50 CALLS TO HIS CELL PHONE, AND SAYS IT'S 'MIND-BOGGLING' THAT ANYONE WOULD IGNORE SAFETY TIPS LESS THAN TWO MONTHS AFTER THE LATEST RIVERFRONT DROWNING IN LA CROSSE.

Rescue workers had to lift an Amish buggy off a horse, after the buggy and animal went down a slope near Viroqua yesterday. The two people in the buggy were able to jump out in time before the spill along Helgeson Road. Only minor injuries reported to the horse.

Van Hollen's pursuit of a suit to block the Obama health bill.
