When Kong Vue goes to trial in La Crosse for the Sara Hougom murder, tapes of police interviewing him will be allowed as evidence.

That ruling comes today in court, despite arguments from Vue's attorney that cops pressured his client into a confession and would not let him leave the interview room. Attorney Mark Lawton questioned the police and special agents today, to show that they coerced Vue into admitting that he shot Hougom.  But Judge Todd Bjerke says he also saw the tapes, and did not find verbal pressure or coercion on the part of the cops. Kong Vue has told police that he shot Hougom when he went into her apartment to steal a purse. Vue's uncle, Pao Choua Vue, is also charged in the murder, and he goes on trial in late August.

Golf Courses Feeling The Heat Of The Drought

Written by

We have all heard about the effects the summer drought has had on people's lawns and farmers fields. But what about area golf courses? Tom Ceresa, owner of the Maple Grove Country Club, says this has been an interesting summer so far.

He says the course itself has held up pretty well as they have gone from watering 6 hours a day to about 13. And tee times are being seen as early as 6am.

Lots of changes recommended in Wisconsin in the voting process prior to the November election.  Those come in a report by a coalition of voting rights groups this week.  That would be overkill from the perspective of West Salem village administrator, Theresa Schnitzler.  She says the in-person voting is fine the way it is.  It's absentee voting that's a problem.  One of the issues is having to wait for ballots to come in until the Friday after the election

 

 

Schnitzler says she also had some would-be absentee voters who came in on the day before the election but new rules prohibited them from voting.

No charges yet in a campfire accident that left four children burned at an area campground back in June.   Houston county sheriff Doug Ely says he's getting close to wrapping up the investigation into the June 29th fire at Money Creek Haven Campground.  A man apparently dumped some sort of accelerant onto a smoldering campfire, causing the fuel container to explode and burning the children.  Four year-old Chloe Langen suffered the worst of the burns and flirted with death a few times before stabilizing at a burn center in St Paul.  Five year-old Annabelle Heyer was also burned badly and was flown to a hospital in Madison.

Lax Couple Facing Drug Warehousing Charges

Written by

A professed gang member and his wife face serious drug charges, including warehousing drugs, following a bust at their La Crosse home.

Raymond and Nicole Lewis are suspected of selling crack, ecstasy, and other drugs. Raymond tells police he used to belong to the Gangster Disciples. The district attorney's office says Nicole Lewis was very active in drug dealing out of her home, and has even conducted 'counter-surveillance' of police in her neighborhood.

Raymond Lewis also may be charged with injuring an officer's hand during the Wednesday arrests on Mormon Coulee Road.

The police chief thinks it's a good idea...and so does the postmaster.

But a proposal to ban pit bulls in Caledonia is drawing some protests...often from people outside the community. The city attorney, Tim Murphy, is searching for precedents.  A few months ago, a pit bull reportedly killed a smaller dog in Caledonia. Council members say the reactions they're hearing from residents come down on both sides of a ban.
