Ignoring The Census A Waste Of Money

Written by
So, maybe you think ignoring the census is no big deal.

The head of La Crosse County's census committee says failing to return the official form could really cost the government some money. Jeff Bluske says sending people door-to-door is what really drives up the census budget, because that costs more than 50 dollars a household.  But if you mail in the form, it only costs the price of a stamp. Although today is the designated day for the census, Bluske says it still counts if you send the form in the next couple of weeks.

City Council Member Wants to Re-Direct Room Tax

Written by
Chances are a one percent not-so-temporary tax will stick around in La Crosse. It's the tax that originally went towards construction of the UWL stadium. Now there's a push to keep the tax to help generate more convention center business. But City council member Andrea Richmond is trying her darndest to direct the tax towards something more substantial.  Like towards a fund for building a new community theatre, Grandad Bluff Park improvements or something along those lines.   The city council votes this month on keeping in place the additional one percent room tax.

Veterinary Association Against Raw Milk Sales

Written by
There's resistance to selling raw milk in Wisconsin from all kinds of areas. Like the state's Veterinary Medical Association. Keith Poulsen is with the group and outspoken about the dangers of raw milk despite proponents who say there's nothing wrong with drinking raw milk.  To proponents who say there's a really small risk from drinking raw milk, Poulsen replies that it is a really small risk until someone gets sick and dies.  

 

 

 

The full assembly is expected to soon vote on allowing raw milk sales in Wisconsin.

Alternate Side Tickets Way Down in La Crosse

Written by
It turns out, the ticket writers in La Crosse were a whole lot less busy this past winter season. After the final count from last night, cops say just about 19 and a half thousand alternate side parking tickets were written in the city since November. Nearly ten thousand fewer than the year before. It may be that people are simply more conscientious about where they park their cars in the winter. But other factors more likely attributed to the decline, including the doubling of the alternate side parking fine prior to the season and a parking study conducted around UW La Crosse that left the area exempt from those alternate side regs for the season.

Sheriff, DA Want No More Shooting Questions For Now

Written by
They got together to say, there's not much to say...

 

The La Crosse County sheriff, the district attorney, and the Onalaska police chief met with reporters to talk about Monday night's shooting near West Salem. But they didn't take questions, because the investigation isn't finished yet, and they don't want to spread rumors. What the law enforcement leaders would say is that Keith Marchbanks is still in the hospital, under 24 hour guard. Marchbanks was shot by an Onalaska policeman when he came toward police with a large butcher knife. He's accused of injuring his wife Stefanie with that knife. And arson investigators are still looking into the fire that ruined the Marchbanks home that night. So, until charges are filed or there's a major change in the case, they have no more answers.

Student Helps Out In Haiti

Written by

A UW-LaCrosse student athlete returns from a trip to earthquake ravaged Haiti.  Track and Cross Country runner Conner Lonning says conditions were grim.  He immersed himself in their way of life staying in a tent with the locals with no blanket or pillow and ate the rations handed out by the Mexican Army.  He handed out food to the Haitians and helped care for the children.  A number of them have lost everything including their parents due to the earthquake.  Conner noticed political red tape is slowing down progress.  Still a lot of people living in tents and not much being done to clear the rubble and begin rebuilding the country.

W. Salem Man Shot By Cops Wouldn't Drop Large Knife

Written by
He was carrying a knife more than a foot long, and ignored police orders to drop it.

That's why a West Salem man, Keith Marchbanks, was shot by an Onalaska policeman during a call to his home last night. Marchbanks had surgery at Gundersen Lutheran, and is in critical condition. He's suspected of stabbing wife Stefanie, who's been treated for chest and thigh wounds. A two-car garage was set on fire. Officers got two younger family members out of the burning house.
