A runaway mother from La Crosse County will get a chance to return to the lives of her children...but first, she'll have to spend a year in jail.
Gretchen Kammel will serve the jail time as part of a five-year probation sentence for taking her kids with her in a custody battle years ago. Kammel skipped the original sentencing in 1998, and left her three children behind until this year. Two of the grown children asked a judge today to let their mother avoid jail.
Kammel apologized to her kids and their two fathers. Judge Ramona Gonzalez said that she made a mistake years ago by releasing Kammel from jail...not realizing that Kammel would disappear for over a decade.

Houaka Yang will be sentenced in January for beating a friend of murder victim Sara Hougom. That friend, Lucas Brickl, testified that he was in jail when he heard fellow prisoner Pao Choua Vue brag about killing Hougom. Yang and a cousin of Pao Vue reportedly attacked Brickl in retaliation for his testimony, the night before Vue reached a plea agreement in the Hougom case. Yang could get about three years in prison for the beating.
The city of La Crosse decided to get out of the marathon business this year, but it's working to improve the half-marathon run every May.
Registration for the 13-mile run starts today with the city park department. The marathon and half-marathon were both introduced in 2009 as part of the city Fitness Festival, but coordinator Jessica Robey says La Crosse's odd layout between the river and the bluffs made it hard to host a 26-mile foot race. Besides that, participation in the long race was pretty small.
People signing up now for the half marathon can get in on an early bird entry fee, before the price rises in January.
