Best lead that La Crosse police have on a robbery suspect could be his hair. Cops say some thug broke through the door of a place on the city's southside on Friday evening. Guy brandished a gun, forced a man and a woman into the bathroom and made off with a safe. The robbery victims describe the guy as black, tall and thin with hair in corn rows and pony tails sprouting from the top. So far they don't have a name but the guy seemed to know somebody who lived there and appeared to know what he was after. In the safe: five hundred bucks and a handgun.
Wildlife biologists with the state Department of Natural Resources invite anyone interested in the status of the deer herd in Crawford, La Crosse, Monroe and Vernon counties to attend an open house public meeting Monday afternoon from 4-8 p.m. in Westby.
This is the first and best opportunity for hunters and other interested individuals to discuss the structure of the 2011 deer hunting seasons with DNR wildlife managers. Biologists will talk about the current size of the deer population and the strategy being suggested to manage these deer populations. Also on the agenda.....an update on efforts to control CWD, a fatal disease affecting deer in south central Wisconsin.
The meeting takes place in the community room of the Bekkum Memorial Library.
It's not a done deal yet. But very nearly. The Holmen village board has gotten close enough to working agreements on seven pieces of property where a new library will sit that they're ready to talk about actual location. Village board president Nancy Proctor says the facility is planned for about 9 acres on a swath of land stretching from the southern hand of Halfway Creek Park to Wall street. Final decisions on purchasing property for the new library are likely to be made next month.
The next tactic for public unions: boycott. State police and fire unions are among those signing on to a letter going out to businesses around Wisconsin, threatening boycott unless those businesses stand against governor Scott Walker's moves to take away collective bargaining rights. This is part of the letter we received from Wisconsin Professional Police Association head, Jim Palmer. (Other unions signing on:
Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin
International Association of Firefighters
Madison Teachers, Inc.
Green Bay Education Association
Dane County Deputy Sheriffs Association
Madison Professional Police Officers Association)

Love means never having to say, "sorry for trying to run you over." Which may leave a La Crosse woman with some explaining to do. Police say Ebony Cade tried to run over her boyfriend Sunday evening after finding him with another woman. Cops say Cade also ran into a car the couple just bought together. She faces serious charges, denies trying to squish her boyfriend with the car and also explains the evening by saying she just "wasn't thinking."
