How young do gangsters get? If you believe a kid La Crosse cops have recently busted, it can be eleven years old. They say the young punk, while at the tennis courts on 7th and Farnam, whipped out a BB gun from his waistband and shot another middle schooler in the gut at close range, drawing blood. Police say he also threatened a witness to keep quiet about it or he'd shoot her, too. The kid claims to be part of the Gangster Disciples, just like his older brother. Cops believe it and say he was involved in another gang dust-up last month with the Crazy Hmong Boys.
Why wait a month? Might as well go smoke-free now...
That's the attitude at South Lanes in La Crosse, banning indoor smoking as of today, instead of holding off until the state law takes effect July 5th. South Lanes owner John Givens says bowlers could still have a smoke outside...but they might risk giving up their turns if they take too long. Givens tells us it may take about a month to wash down the walls and windows, to eliminate years of smoky smells in the bowling area.
How much does the public need to know about a man who committed a triple murder 25 years ago?
That question is at the heart of a La Crosse County court hearing tomorrow, about the release of Bryan Stanley. Relatives of the priest and two other men killed by Stanley were NOT told last year when he was released from Mendota hospital. The county sheriff's office said it forgot to inform the families. The La Crosse Tribune says the sealed records should be open to assure the public that Stanley is NOT likely to commit more crimes. Stanley's attorney wants that request dismissed.
A canoeing trip in the Goose Island area ends with a drowning...
Terry Jones and Gary Willis of La Crosse stopped on a sandbar Saturday afternoon. Jones went into the water for a swim, and began struggling. Willis couldn't reach him, and went to Goose Island for help. The La Crosse County Sheriff's department and other agencies searched for about two hours before finding Jones's body. There was a strong current, and the water was about 10 feet deep where Jones went swimming.
