More police officers? More firefighters? Current La Crosse mayor
A true crime story from La Crosse County gets the TV documentary treatment this weekend...
The '48 Hours' show on CBS this Saturday will feature the Eric Koula murder case. Last June, Koula was found guilty of killing his parents at their Barre Mills home, and a CBS crew covered most of the trial. D-A Tim Gruenke was among the local people interviewed for the program. He says the case has been very stressful, and having network TV cover the trial may have added some stress for the Koula family.
The Koula murders also were the subject of a recent cable crime program, in which actors played some of the real people involved in the case. The '48 Hours' show will air Saturday at 9 p.m.
It's a plan to save two billion dollars a year...but many customers of the postal service don't like the plan.
The post office has announced it will end most Saturday mail delivery this summer. U-S-P-S spokesman Pete Nowacki in Minneapolis says the effect on La Crosse area post offices has not been calculated, but around the U.S., it could save more than 20,000 jobs.
Positions the postal service hopes it won't have to eliminate, if the money can be saved. A decline in 'snail mail' usage and the expense of a federally-mandated pension plan have been cited as reasons for the service cutback.
