Organic Valley Out in Force at Farm-Aid

Written by
Farms in the area will be well represented at the Farm Aid event in Milwaukee this week-end. Arcadia-based Organic Valley is sending busloads of farmers to the 25th anniversary Farm Aid benefit concert. The 120 farmers won't be hard to identify; they're all wearing T-shirts that say either "who's your farmer?" or, "I'm your farmer." The concert will be held on Saturday at Miller Park.

Therapy Dog Stolen

Written by
Two thousand bucks for a dog? That's how much a Viroqua woman values her terrier mix. Which makes the loss of the dog a pretty tough one. Woman says the dog disappeared from her car while she was at Menard's in La Crosse yesterday morning. Figures someone stole him. Says he looks like Toto, from Wizard of Oz, and answers to the name Dickens. Good find for the thief, apparently; Dickens works as a therapy dog. Police say, no suspects yet.

Almost 4 K Donated In Response To Theft At Moving Wall

Written by
Almost four thousand dollars...

That's how much money folks in the La Crosse area donated Tuesday for the Moving Wall, honoring soldiers killed in Vietnam. That total includes cash which was brought to Riverside Park during the day Tuesday, and by passing the hat at the Bret Michaels concert that night. The last-minute fund-raiser was organized to make up for the theft of one donation box which was placed near the wall while it was on display for Oktoberfest. No arrest has been reported in that theft.

Downtown Thief Collared by Cops

Written by
Downtown La Crosse business owners can apparently breathe a little easier today. Police have nabbed a guy they figure has been behind all sorts of burglaries downtown. They arrested 26 year-old Nathan Holmes early yesterday morning after he broke into the Pearl ice cream shop and nabbed hundreds of dollars. They suspect it's the second time in about a week he's hit the Pearl. They also think he knocked over Coney Island a couple of times and Big Al's once. They caught Holmes with a portable police scanner, a flashlight, multi-tool and schematics for other places he was apparently targeting.

Male Student Allegedly Molested By Two At UWL

Written by
Students and staff at U-W-La Crosse are being offered counseling, after an alleged student rape at a dorm on Monday.

The two suspects and the alleged victim are all males. Brayden Wienke and Casey Gudis were arrested shortly after the alleged incident was reported Monday, but they didn't appear in court until Wednesday. As part of their bond, the two are not allowed back on campus, and have been suspended for now. They're expected back in the courtroom next week. Few details have been released by the D-A's office or university police.

Decriminalization of Pot Off to Sputtering Start

Written by
Sometime in the not-too-distant future, getting caught with a one-hitter in your pocket may turn into nothing more than a ticket in La Crosse. But maybe not right away. A city council committee is the first to say no to a proposal to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana. Council member John Satory is pushing hard for this one.  He says it's time the city council realize that there are far more problems than marijuana in the city and that tough enforcement of pot laws make it more likely young people will turn to hard drugs. The proposal under consideration by the city council would decriminalize possessing anything less than 25 grams.

Campaign Balance Equity Not Universal

Written by
In the battle of dueling campaign war chests, one local legislative race is close to being a dead heat. According to a new report from the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, Republican West Salem state rep Mike Huebsch and democratic challenger, Cheryl Hancock both have just about 14 thousand dollars in their respective campaign accounts. Cash stockpiling is pretty close in the 96th assembly race as well.  Westby Republican incumbent Lee Nerison and democratic challenger Brian Murphy have both managed to gather around 40 thousand dollars for that race. More lopsided is the race for La Crosse's legislative seat, in which democrat incumbent Jennifer Shilling has over fifty thousand dollars in her campaign account, compared to about a hundred bucks for Republican challenger, Nick Charles.

Bliss Road on Serious Back Burner for City

Written by
Will La Crosse ever get its Bliss back? The way it's looking right now....no it won't. The city's public works department is looking for about 15 thousand dollars to get some design help for a fix for the latest washout on the troubled road that leads to the top for Grandad Bluff in the city. A city council committee has narrowly turned down the request. Which means that a repair of Bliss has an indefinite future. The road will remain closed at least until Spring. Without a plan for repair, it could remain closed permanently.

Thousands Collected At Moving Wall Today

Written by
They won't know right away how much money they raised...the estimate is thousands of dollars. 

But veterans associated with the 'Moving Wall' visit to La Crosse are very happy with the response from donors who brought money to Riverside Park this morning. Don Simpson of the American Legion Riders says there was a steady flow of donations during a three-hour period today, to replace money a donation box stoeln from the park over the weekend. The Moving Wall exhibit, a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, is headed to another community today after being displayed in La Crosse since Thursday.
