County Clerk Says Id Changes Frustrating

Written by

A Wisconsin judge last week granted a temporary injunction to groups trying to stop the state’s controversial new voter identification law. Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan’s decision to grant the injunction stops the law from being in effect for the state’s April 3rd presidential primary election. And just when things were going so good says La County Clerk, Ginny Denkmeyer.

A Dane County judge is expected to rule today on a possible second injunction barring enforcement of Wisconsin's voter ID requirement.

No One Hurt In Monroe County Train Accident

Written by

Somehow, a car train accident in Monroe County resulted in no injuries. Monroe County dispatch received a call from the Canadian Pacific Rail road a little after 7 last night, advising that they had hit a car at a private crossing between Cty Hwy M and Cty Hwy ET in the town of LaGrange. When officers and EMS arrived on scene they found a vehicle on the north side of the tracks. The driver, 24 year old Gabriel Hedke of Tomah, was out of the vehicle and appeared to be unhurt.  Hedke told police that he did not see the train until just before he hit it. Hedke was arrested for OWI. There were no injuries to any train personnel and no damage to the train.

A La Crosse murder victim died of strangling, but her death is still considered drug-related...

Today, a 44-year-old man was arrested for the killing of Kristen Rodgers. Izelia Golatt is scheduled in court this afternoon, to be charged with first-degree murder. La Crosse Police Chief Ed Kondracki says if people want to reduce the amount of drug abuse and related crimes in this area, they should be willing to report drug activity.

 

Kondracki says the police need more resources to investigate drug use, and prevent crimes such as the Rodgers murder. Golatt was captured at his home near the Green Island arena.
