Might not be easy sailing in the Wisconsin state senate today for a budget
Two Onalaskas in one county may be one too many...
The co-existence of a city of Onalaska and a town of Onalaska has caused some confusion for decades. Now, the town is aiming to become a village...and if that happens, the new community will be called the 'Village of Midway.' Sandy Thompson of the town board says Midway is a popular choice among townspeople.
Now, the task of circulating incorporation petitions will begin. Town leaders hope to get about 15-hundred signatures, but they only need 50 in all.
A La Crosse County jury could hear from homicide suspect Cain Moss as soon as Wednesday...
The prosecution is expected to rest its case against Moss sometime on Wednesday, and the defense is likely to call him to the stand. Moss is accused of reckless homicide for providing drugs to Anthony DuCharme in 2011, and of trying to hide DuCharme's body after he died suddenly. Testimony began on Tuesday, with La Crosse police describing details of DuCharme's death and the discovery of his body on a hillside. One man previously convicted of helping conceal the corpse also took the witness stand, as did a man who served in the county jail with Moss and claims the defendant confessed to committing the crimes.
