Billions of dollars need to be invested in America's natural resources, on the Upper Mississippi and elsewhere. That's what Interior Secretary Sally Jewell says about the risk of letting a Land and Water Conservation Fund expire in a few weeks. Jewell says natural attractions are needed, because kids spend too much of their time in front of electronic screens, instead of going outdoors. The secretary traveled on a boat with Congressman Ron Kind late last week, checking out areas of a local wildlife refuge. She says a trade-off of permitting offshore drilling of fossil fuels comes from putting some of that fuel revenue back into conservation.

La Crosse police count a total of five shootings over the weekend on the southside.  The shots started on Friday night and lasted through Sunday afternoon.

Police say the first shooting occurred in the area of 5th and Jackson streets just before nine on Friday night.  While police were investigating what was reported as a drive by on 5th street, they were alerted to the second shooting on Mississippi street.  In both cases, houses were hit but no injuries reported.  Witnesses say they shots came from a silver car.  

The third shooting was reported on 3rd street at about 1:30 Saturday morning.  Police say a 40 year-old man was shot in the foot while standing outside his home.  

About 24 hours later, the fourth shooting was reported in the area of the 900 block of 5th street.  Several shots fired.  Police say several young men were involved but no injuries or property damage were reported.  

On Sunday, a fifth shooting in the early afternoon. A 19 year-old shot and taken to the hospital then later released.   Police think that shooting occurred around the 900 block of south 4th.  A handgun was found in that area.  

Police say the victims are related and all of the shootings could be connected.  They also say there appears to be no danger to the public at large.  The investigation is ongoing and there are no suspects at this point.  

Comment

A report of a shooting in the area of Seventh and Cass Streets on Sunday afternoon in La Crosse has followed a report of shots fired at houses near 5th and Jackson on Friday night.  It appeared as though one person was taken away from Sunday's shooting in an ambulance.  It wasn't immediately clear whether the person in the ambulance was a shooting victim.  Investigators did take a woman from that scene who did not appear to be under arrest. 

Meanwhile, Friday's shooting is still under investigation.  No one was injured in that shooting, though a couple of houses were hit.  Little information has been released by police about the shooting and no arrests have been made.

Interior secretary will tour refuge today

Written by

A government fund to preserve America's natural resources will get special attention today, when an Obama cabinet member comes to La Crosse.  Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell is expected to observe the 50th anniversary of the Land and Water Conservation Fund. 

La Crosse Congressman Ron Kind says the fund, generally financed through revenue from oil and natural gas sales, has done much good over the years.  He says it's money that's been reinvested in natural resources just like the upper Mississippi.

Kind and Jewell will spend about two hours touring parts of the Mississippi Valley wildlife refuge by boat.

Jane Doe information expected to be released today

Written by

We're expecting more information from Vernon County today, about possible new leads in a 'Jane Doe' murder investigation from the 1980's.  An unidentified woman was murdered in May of 1984, and her body was discovered along a road in Vernon County.  Her hands had been cut off, presumably to prevent police from identifying her through fingerprints.  This week, the woman's body was removed from a cemetery, so the state crime lab could use DNA testing to help determine her identity.

Gow thrilled for new building

Written by

Getting final state approval to build the UW-L’s new Science Labs Building was simply huge. That's according to Chancellor Joe Gow.

He says science programs are popular on campus now. In fact, he says, some of the most popular programs at the school are biology and physics, the latter of which has more undergraduate degree recipients than any other in the nation.  Gow says the new building will lead to a much larger door opening for students when the building is complete.

 

The $82 million four-story science labs building will include 35 new instructional and research laboratories for biology, chemistry, geography and earth science, physics, microbiology, river studies, and the radiation center. It will also include a shared administrative and building support spaces. Construction will begin next year.

No vote on redesign for Rose St.

Written by
A resolution on a conflict between the city of La Crosse and the DOT will only last so long.  On Thursday, the city council votes against funding a redesign study for the DOT's plans for the Rose Street entrance into the city.   Though council member Bob Seaquist says it's dumb to allow the DOT to move ahead how they want on the project.  He says the agency doesn't care about economic viability of La Crosse or the health of its neighborhoods, only about moving cars in and out of the city as quickly as possible.   

 

The city may make a stronger statement on the issue next month when the council is asked to vote on rejecting the Rose Street plan from the DOT altogether.

Council agrees to mayor's pay hike

Written by
The mayor will get a raise in La Crosse.  Depending on a decision by the current mayor.  The city council on Thursday voted to approve a ten percent hike in the mayor's salary to $85 thousand a year.  
 
But you're getting plenty for that, says chief proponent of the raise, council member Jai Johnson, including someone who manages a $72 million operational budget, $7 million of capital improvement projects, 17 department heads and hundreds of employees.  She says the job is the most important.  More important, she says, than the county administrator or the La Crosse school superintendent, both of which make way more money than the mayor of the city of La Crosse.  
 
Mayor Tim Kabat has suggested he may veto the raise.  It would be the first veto since he took office.
