Police are investigating a violent sexual assault from early Sunday morning in La Crosse. Police say a young woman was walking alone away from the Jay street parking ramp after bartime downtown when she was grabbed from behind, thrown down on the concrete between Subway and the Holiday Inn and raped. Police have only a very general description and, at this point, no supects.
After fifteen years, a woman wanted in La Crosse county is back to face the music.
Mitt Romney could visit La Crosse this week...but we're not sure just yet.
La Crosse County Republican Party chair Julian Bradley expects to have more information today about a planned stop by the Romney tour bus this Thursday. Bradley says the bus probably will make a noon-hour stop in La Crosse, but he hasn't heard yet who will be on the bus. Could be Romney, or running mate Paul Ryan, or both, or neither one. Campaign schedules appear to be changing since Wisconsin Congressman Ryan was added to the ticket this weekend.
Wisconsin's Republican Senate Primary is tomorrow. So who's going to the polls?

That's UW-L Assistant Chancellor of Student Affairs Paula Knudson commenting on the mass shootings in Oak Creek. And as she ponders that thought, she looks at what is being done on campus as hate and bias happens not only there, but other campuses as well.
The campus is coming off of an open Hate Response training session. Shane Windmeyer, founder of the National Stop the Hate, Train the Trainer Program, taught 93 UW-L faculty, staff and students the difference between hate and bias incidents and hate and bias crimes.
