Benefit for Burn Victim This Saturday

Written by

Healing can take all kinds of forms.   For four year-old Chloe Langen, severely burned in a campfire accident in June at the Money Creek haven campground near Houston, recovery will be a long road of skin grafts and sedation.  And then there's the rift caused by the man who caused the explosion that badly burned Chloe and five year-old Annabelle Heyer.  The man is apparently related to Heyer.  Healing that one will be more difficult, says Chloe's aunt Barb Kappauf

 

 

Kappauf has organized a fundraiser for Chloe and her family on Saturday.  She says it will involve much of the small city of Hokah from morning until midnight.

It's a day that many postal workers hoped would not come...

But on Wednesday, the Postal Service is expected to miss a payment toward retirement benefits...a payment of over five billion dollars. Gary Knutson of the La Crosse letter carriers union says Congress forced the post office into this situation six years ago, and Congress has not acted to correct the problem.

 

The Postal Service lost five billion dollars last year...and it warns that drastic service cuts might be required if the government insists on having future pensions paid in the present.

A driver accused of causing a two-car weekend crash in Vernon County is being held in Minnesota.

Mark Nordrum was arrested in Houston County yesterday. Investigators say Nordrum crashed head-on into another car on Highway 56 near Viroqua, and then ran from the accident scene. Two people in the other car were injured, along with a passenger in Nordrum's car. No word yet on when Nordrum could be brought back to Wisconsin to face charges.

Could there be a new suspect in the murder of Sara Hougom?

The defense attorney for Pao Choua Vue will be allowed to introduce evidence suggesting that a juvenile has claimed involvement in the March killing of Hougom at her La Crosse apartment. Only two people are charged in the case now...Pao Vue and Kong Vue, who both claim to have shot Hougom during an attempted burglary. Pao's attorney, John Brinckman, says a juvenile has told police that he committed the shooting, although the prosecution says the boy has gotten some details wrong. Judge Todd Bjerke says although the testimony might make the juvenile a defendant 'in a way,' he says the jury at Pao Vue's August trial should be allowed to decide whether the boy was involved.  The judge also ruled that there has not been enough adverse publicity about the case to justify choosing a jury from another county.

The military style program at the Black River Falls Correctional facility has been in place for the past 8 years. In that time, only one person walked away from the facility only to be captured later that day. That was 2007. Forward 5 years and the 2nd and 3rd escapees of the facility, were also caught but not as fast. 2 weeks this time. But Superintendent, David Andraska, doesn't feel many safeguards will have to be put in place to deter others from walking away.

He says they will look at their escape notification sytems though. Meanwhile, James Mislevic and James Newman could find out Thursday if they will be sent back to Wisconsin to face charges in two counties.

Local Women Building A Dream Home

Written by

Area women are grabbing hammers and power tools to help build a house in Viroqua. They are joining the La Crosse Area Habitat for Humanity in building the new home at 421 Willow Street. La Crosse County Board member, Marilyn Padretti, got 11 county employees together to go the job site Saturday....the 2nd year in a row they have helped.

The 3rd Annual Women Build home built at 1733 Kane Street in La Crosse was finished last year. Ka Xiong and Hang Yang and their five children now have a safe, decent, affordable home of their own. That home was funded by the Women Build teams that put their time and talents to work, and by a generous matching grant from The La Crosse Community Foundation.

Watch The Voting Rules This Time

Written by

The state Government Accountability Board says the primary in 2 weeks will be the first time Wisconsin’s partisan primaries have been held in August since 1946. The usual September primary was moved to August 14th this year so the state can comply with a federal law aimed at giving military and overseas voters enough time to cast their absentee ballots. And you have to be careful who you vote for this year.

Denkmeyer considers confusion about crossover voting one of the biggest issues poll workers face during partisan primaries.

The heat wave year of 1988 is still a record-setter for La Crosse...but maybe not for much longer.

The average high for a summer in La Crosse reached its peak in '88, and no other summer has come close to the 46 days of 90-plus weather that year. On the other hand, the average high for summer 2012 beat that 1988 record as of last week, with one month left in the season. Forecaster Jeff Raberding of the National Weather Service says this year's weather patterns are much like those of 1988, which included some hot August days.

 

Jeff says Tuesday could be another 90 degree day. The local record for July 31st is 103 degrees, set in...you guessed it...1988.
