Winter Moratorium Coming

Written by
Problems paying the heat bill? Well...the Wisconsin Winter Moratorium begins November 1st and goes until April 15th.....which means your lights  and heat cannot be shut off.......if they are connected at the start of the moratorium.But to get help...you must ask for it.

Pat Bowland of Xcel Energy says they know some people are having a hard time making ends meet.

 

Also.....due to recent changes in program eligibility, many more households across the state may be eligible for heating assistance this winter through the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program, which provides financial assistance to low-income residents. If you need help with your utility bill...contact your provider.

Shelby Offers Signal For Bliss Road

Written by
People could be driving on Bliss Road today...if the city of La Crosse would allow it.

Shelby town chair Lynnetta Kopp told town residents last night that one lane of traffic on the closed road up Grandad Bluff can handle traffic. So she has proposed putting a temporary traffic signal, paid for by Shelby, on Bliss Road so it can reopen.

 

So far, no answer from Mayor Matt Harter or other city leaders. Some of the Shelby residents at a town meeting last night accused La Crosse of 'blackmail' and trying to pick their pockets to pay for a road entirely within city limits.

Jury Chosen For La Crosse Priest Abuse Trial

Written by

It didn't take long to choose a jury in a sexual assault case involving a priest serving in the La Crosse Diocese...

Jury selection for the trial of Father Edmund Donkor-Baine lasted less than two hours. Those jurors will begin hearing testimony tomorrow, on charges that Donkor-Baine had sexual contact with a woman he was counseling in a divorce. The woman says she complained to police after church officials took no action against the priest, who's visiting from Ghana. She claims the incident happened in a parked car more than a year ago.

Sixth OWI for Guy "Just Heading Home"

Written by
A sixth drunk driving arrest for a guy in La Crosse this week-end. Police say they stopped 40 year-old Craig Ross around midnight on Saturday heading north out of town. Ross told cops he was just heading home to Onalaska from a bar on the city's northside. He was driving a car without a rearview mirror, no seatbelt, no insurance. What he did have was a full belly of booze. Police say Ross nearly blew a .16 at the scene. Besides the sixth OWI, under a recently enacted Wisconsin law, they also cited him for failing to installl an ignition interlock device on the car he was driving.

Ethics Board to Select Attorney During Meeting Today

Written by
The La Crosse ethics board is back at it today. The board meets for the second time to consider a complaint filed by a large group of people against mayor Matt Harter. The complaint roughly mirrors an outside legal opinion that found the mayor maybe overstepped ethical and legal boundaries in meetings at the county solid waste director's office. One of those meetings involved Harter's dad, the city's garbage and recycling contractor.  The ethics board today is expected to select outside legal counsel.

Parking Tickets Can Keep You From Dream Bartending Job

Written by
You have to have standards. And La Crosse police will hold you to them if you apply for a bartender's license in the city.   After a review of the 18 license applications denied by the police in the last year, we find that police follow a pattern of denials: Excessive problems with the law, drug and alcohol convictions, or just unpaid parking tickets.   The 18 denials were among 500 or so bartender license applications total over the last year.   Not a big number, says La Crosse tavern league president Mike Brown, and he doesn't think the process for getting a license is overly burdensome.  Although Brown does have some light criticism for denials based on unpaid parking tickets.  Brown also says, though you don't have to have an operator's license to tend bar in the city, members of the Tavern League typically require their bartenders to get the license.

Hearing Today In Crawford Co Strangling Case

Written by
A judge in Prairie du Chien could decide this afternoon whether Michael Burroughs will be tried for a murder he already confessed to committing.

Burroughs has an evidence hearing in Crawford County court...a standard procedure, leading up to a possible negotiated plea. The Iowa man went to police in Prairie earlier this month, and told them he strangled Shannon Fischer in his apartment in 2006, putting her body in the garbage days later. Area police had spent years searching for Fischer as a missing person.

Arrests Made In School Break In

Written by

Buffalo County authorities say they’ve solved one break-in at the Cochrane-Fountain City School and are investigating another.

Two former students broke into the school in August 2009, stealing thousands in electronics and damaging property.

Buffalo County Sheriff Mike Schmidtknecht says former students, 21 year old Thomas Grant of Winona and 21 year old Jonathan White of Fountain City, will be formally charged.

The school was again burglarized last month, when thieves stole a safe filled with cash from the District, FBLA and FFA concession stand and money from fundraisers.
