Donate Blood....Get Pie

Written by
This Thanksgiving, you can give a hospital patient the opportunity to spend another holiday with their family and friends, and get a special treat for yourself, by donating blood or platelets through the American Red Cross.

Throughout the year, dedicated donors take time out of their day to help strangers in need. During this season of giving thanks, the Red Cross is thanking all blood donors by offering a free pie to all presenting donors at the La Crosse Blood Donation Center during the week of Thanksgiving.

While the need for blood is constant, the supply isn't and blood donation levels dip around the holidays.

La Crosse Blood Donation Center is at1427 Hwy 16. For platelet donation hours, or to make an appointment, please call 1-800-RED CROSS

Two Sleepy People Blamed For 2008 Derailment

Written by
An early morning train derailment in Minnesota two winters ago might have been caused by railroad workers who were way too tired...

Fatigue is being blamed for the collision of two trains at Dresbach in December of 2008, according to a report by the Federal Railroad Administration. A 17-car train did not yield to a longer train that was merging onto the main track, and the resulting crash sent a locomotive and two dozen other cars into the water. Investigators believe the two men operating the smaller train were not alert because they were working long hours that week, including a nearly 14-hour shift. The accident caused more than a million dollars in damage to the trains and the rails.

Book Kept On Probation, Warned About Prison

Written by
Is a young woman being singled out by La Crosse police, because she was convicted of letting her newborn baby starve to death?

The defense lawyer for Indra Book thinks the 22-year-old is being punished 'harshly' for violating her probation on a reckless homicide charge. Book is back in jail this week, for curfew violations and drinking...and attorney Vincent Rust is not pleased.

Judge Scott Horne will put Book back on a curfew, and on electronic monitoring. He warns that Book could go to prison if she doesn't change a partying lifestyle.

Judge Says No To Osseo-Fairchild Appeal

Written by
A state judge on Thursday dismissed an appeal by the Osseo-Fairchild school district to allow the district to retain its Chieftains logo, setting the stage for a new mascot for the district.
The district has until July 27th to remove the Chieftains name and come up with a new mascot, logo and nickname.


The issue has been around since 2002 and has not only split the community there but also sparked much debate and even a referendum 2 weeks ago.

UW-L Students Bring The Cash

Written by
International students attending the UW-La Crosse in 2009-10 are bringing in more money to the local economy then any college in western Wisconsin’s Third Congressional District.

The 383 international students enrolled in classes at UW-L during the last academic year contributed an estimated $8,4 million in tuition, fees and living expenses.

Locally, when added to the estimated more than $1.1 million spent by Viterbo University’s international students and the nearly $260 thousand spent by those at Western Technical College, the total impact of foreign students at La Crosse’s three institutions of higher education is more than $9.5 million.

Jay Lokken, director of International Education at UW-L, says UW-L international students’ economic impact to continues to grow because of the school’s success in recruiting

Thompson Recount Still Going

Written by
The original margin was 439 votes out of about 60-thousand cast. He says he picked up 62 during the re-canvass. So has Ed Thompson defeated Kathleen Vinehout yet? Nope.

A recount continues in Senator Vinehout’s district. The Democrat from Alma had her victory challenged by Thompson.

Two other recounts have been finished......and Republicans are the winners. Republican Kathy Bernier unseated Representative Kristen Dexter by 78 votes and Republican Warren Petryk of Eleva defeated Representative Jeff Smith by 74 votes.

The results give Republicans a 60-to-38 majority over Democrats in the new Assembly that convenes in January.

Black Friday is Near

Written by
Black Friday, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, is one week from today.

The term dates back to at least 1966, although its usage was primarily on the East coast. The term has become more common in other parts of the country since 2000. Because Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, Black Friday occurs between the 23rd and the 29th of November. According to one report, in 2007 135 million people participated in the Black Friday shopping rush.

In many cities it is not uncommon to see shoppers lined up for hours before stores with big sales open. Once inside the stores, shoppers often rush and grab, as many stores have only a few of the big-draw items. And electronics and popular toys are often the most sought-after items and may be sharply discounted.

Jeff Owen of the Valley View Mall says the trend of "mad dash shopping" should continue more this year since more and more folks are stepping over the "recession line"........and wandering into the "open field of spending".

Yes, My Boy, That is a Dumb Idea

Written by
How many high school students can claim a high speed chase on their driving resume? Probably not too many. Now, a 17 year-old Central High student in La Crosse has acheived that dubious honor. Police say the young guy drove through a red light early this morning. Cop got on his tail right away and the kid gunned it. Got about a block and a half before pulling over. Got out of the car with the officer's gun drawn on him. Guy knew he shouldn't have run. Even told the cop at the scene while he was getting arrested that doing so was likely a "dumb idea."

No Lock Thief Hits One House Too Many

Written by
La Crosse police think they may have solved several burglaries with one arrest this week. Cops say they've busted 21 year-old Joshua Dull in the act of trying to steal electronics from a home in the city. Cops have been looking for the thieves responsible for many burglaries that occurred at places that were left unlocked. Dull, they say, was on his way towards making off with a flat screen and an X-Box gaming system when he was tripped up by the owners. Apparently they held on to him until cops arrived. Police think he's behind at least some of the other burglaries. Right now they're trying to find some of the other electronics that have been stolen.
