A music teacher at Onalaska is facing charges of stalking and domestic assault, for allegedly threatening to kill a man at her home.
Winona County has filed seven charges against Sandra Kauphusman of Winona, who teaches at Onalaska Middle School. A criminal complaint says Kauphusman would not let her male roommate out of her residence one day in March. The man says that Kauphusman picked up a knife and said 'I'm going to kill you,' and also scratched his face and pulled his hair as he tried to leave. The victim reportedly recorded some of the confrontation on a cellphone video. The county prosecutor says the man and woman have been in a relationship for 15 years.

Remember the warm, sunny weather during the Oktoberfest Maple Leaf Parade last fall?
That was the last day La Crosse had temperatures over 80 degrees...September 29th. This afternoon, the mercury in La Crosse could reach 80 again, for the first time in seven months. After the 60-degree barrier was finally cracked on Friday, the city has had highs in the 70's for four straight days. But the warm spell should end soon. The National Weather Service is now predicting the return of snow, maybe up to an inch, on Thursday in La Crosse, with a high around 40.
