Todd Wittenberg had a court date for Tuesday afternoon, at 1:30...

And Wittenberg did make it to court at 1:30...but not in the county where he was supposed to be. The 50-year-old Holmen resident was in La Crosse County court, suspected of heroin possession. At that hour, Wittenberg was scheduled to reach a plea agreement on heroin charges in Trempealeau County. He was one of five people arrested last July during drug raids in the Galesville area.

Medinger Ending Campaign For Mayor

Written by

Former La Crosse Mayor John Medinger is ending his campaign to return to his old job.  Medinger just announced his campaign less than two weeks ago, at the urging of backers.  He says he's getting out of the race early enough to allow other people to file as candidates before the January 2nd deadline.

Police link a La Crosse man to an October armed robbery by finding that he has items stolen from the victims...

Guns and wallets containing victim I-D's were discovered in the closet of suspect Areschial (uh-RAY-shul) Page. Investigator Andrew Rosenow says a police informant heard Page admit to planning the robbery at a 5th Avenue home.

 

Judge Scott Horne rules that there's enough evidence to try Page and De'Aaron Appleton for the October robbery. Horne also denied a request to lower Page's bond of 25-thousand dollars.

Black River Falls Man Faces Homicide Charge

Written by

 

A Black River Falls man will face a homicide charge after he was involved in a fatal crash earlier this year. Jackson County D.A. Gerald Fox has charged Thomas Jahnke with homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle. Police say Jahnke had a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit the night of the crash.

Kayla Konemann of Lyndon Station died August 10th when the car she was riding in was hit by Jahnke's pickup truck near Black River Falls. Police say he ran a stop sign at a high rate of speed. They also say he did not have a valid driver's license. The driver of the car, Myles Vollmer of Portage, was critically injured. An additional charge of injury by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle was filed against Jahnke in regards to Vollmer's injuries.

Both men were airlifted to area hospitals due to the seriousness of the injuries suffered in the crash.

Walker Talks About School Shooting

Written by

 

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker says there are no perfect solutions to preventing a repeat of last week's mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. During an interview Tuesday, Walker says it will take several weeks to get a true answer on what led to the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary, where a 20-year-old gunman killed 20 children and six adults before taking his own life.

Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry supports allowing teachers and administrators to carry concealed handguns. But, Walker says any politician that provides a simple answer at this point is jumping to conclusions.

The governor says early intervention for those with mental health issues and access to community-based care are matters that need to be addressed.

Same Day Registrations Discussed Today

Written by

 

(AP) The president of a group representing municipal clerks and the head of the Wisconsin chapter of the League of Women Voters say allowing voters to register at the polls on election day has served the state well and should not be eliminated. They and others spoke about the issue at a Tuesday meeting of the Government Accountability Board, which oversees elections in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association president Vikki Zuehlke says the association has signed a resolution opposing the elimination of election day registration, in part over concerns of the $5.2 million cost outlined in a GAB report.

League of Women Voters of Wisconsin executive director Andrea Kaminski says there is no evidence that same-day registration has caused significant problems.
