Book Booked Again

Written by
The last time Indra Book was in court, a La Crosse county judge made it pretty clear: If he saw her again, she was likely going to prison. We'll see. Book, the 23 year-old woman who was convicted in the death of her infant daughter three years ago, has been in trouble for probation violations since her release from a halfway house earlier this year. Just days after getting a stern warning from judge Scott Horne about the path of rule-breaking she was traveling, Book's been busted again. This time for missing a breath test and for having synthetic pot in her purse.

Better, Not Great Opening Week-end

Written by
Better weather. More deer. Happy hunters. It's probably too soon to say hunters across Wisconsin are completely pleased about the opening week-end of the state's nine day gun deer hunt just yet. But they certainly had a better time of it this year if you go by the numbers. The DNR pegs the preliminary total of deer harvested in the state after the first two days of gun deer at a little over 106 thousand. That's a six percent increase over last year's opening week-end totals of just a little over a hundred thousand deer. But also down considerably from 134 thousand in 2008 and over 170 thousand in 2007.

Guy Slashes Friend, Charged with Mayhem

Written by
A La Crosse guy will spend his Thanksgiving week healing from some pretty significant stab wounds. Cops say the 44 year-old apparently upset his roommate, 37 year-old John Rera on Saturday. To the point where, cops say, Rera stabbed his buddy. Actually more like slashed him. Across the chest, across the back. Doctors say the guy would have died if he hadn't got help right away. Police suspect Rera might have been on an Adderall bender. Apparently he told cops, he just wasn't thinking straight. Rera faces a number of charges, including one for reckless endangerment and one for mayhem.

Man Who Stabbed Cop Going Back To Hospital

Written by
Joseph Smith is going back to the hospital...

A La Crosse County judge rules that Smith is again 'showing signs of mental illness,' after being released from the Mendota hospital earlier this year. Smith originally was committed four years ago, after wounding a La Crosse policeman in the chest with a screwdriver. Experts testified today that since his release into the community a few weeks ago, Smith has had hallucinations about shootings happening near his home, or police being outside his home, and has called the police for help.

Lacrosse School's On T.V.

Written by
Several School District of La Crosse classrooms have had guests this week. The guests aren’t speaking to the class or sharing what they do, but rather taping the classroom experiences La Crosse students have in International Education, specifically the Chinese language and culture.


A camera crew from Wisconsin Public Television arrived in the district last week traveling throughout the La Crosse Schools to learn about the district’s impressive International Education opportunities.


The crew not only filmed the high school’s Chinese classes and interviewed those teachers, but also visited elementary and middle schools to see how lessons about the Chinese culture are integrated into daily lessons. At Logan Middle School students will be viewing podcasts from a partner school in China and creating their own to share what is happening in the La Crosse Community. At North Woods International School the crew will visit a music class, observe preschool and kindergarten classrooms that are teaching about China and interview students who participate in the school’s after school China Club.

Once filming is complete the Education Communications Board from Wisconsin Public Television will produce a video about the Chinese education programs in the School District of La Crosse. The video will be distributed to districts throughout the state as a noted “best practices” model for offering Chinese education and may be broadcast on Wisconsin Public Television at a later date.

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

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.
