Wanted Chicago Man in La Crosse County Jail

Written by

A Chicago area man is being held on half-a-million dollars bond in the La Crosse jail, as a fugitive from Illinois. Twenty-two-year-old Kendal Readus was arrested in La Crosse County yesterday, on a warrant issued by a Lake County, Illinois judge in April. Readus is accused of breaking into a North Chicago home on April 9th and threatening a couple in the home while he was carrying a firearm. Police say he also stole money and a wallet from the house, and fired a shot at another vehicle.

Money from special interest groups are pouring into Wisconsin politics. At least that's the case over the past five years, according to a new report from advocacy group, Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. The group tracks spending on elections and says at least a dozen groups have spent more than two million dollars on elections and influencing politicians since 2010. Top of the list, spending an estimated 27 million and change during that time is the Greater Wisconsin Committee, which supports democratic candidates.

Railroad Ties in Fire Meant for Xcel Plant

Written by

The old railroad ties that fueled a big fire on French Island today were meant to be burned, but not right now. Xcel Energy has used ground-up ties as fuel for the French Island incinerator for several years. Xcel spokeswoman Liz Wolf Green says the wood chips stored at Omaha Track make up 50 per cent of the typical fuel load for the refuse-to-energy plant. The other 50 per cent is garbage that would otherwise go to landfills. Green tells us that the Xcel plant could operate just on burning garbage, if their supply of wood chips was disrupted.

The future of a high-end Shelby subdivision hangs in the balance. You got Shelby, the county, the school district and developers all pushing forward on the plan for Willow Heights, the former Irish Hills golf course. And then the city of La Crosse. With a mayor thinking he can work out a deal by Thursday's city council meeting to share tax revenue from the development. And without that deal, the council might not approve the subdivision plans
 
 
 
 
 
Shelby town chair Tim Candahl is frustrated with the city and expresses his doubts that any deal will get done. La Crosse has some jurisdiction over the planned neighborhood because it lies within three miles of city limits.

Bucks Arena Deal Comes with Protections, Limits

Written by
The plan for a new Milwaukee Bucks arena looks like this. Governor Walker says the plan includes $250 million already committed by the Bucks' current and former owners. The other half will come from taxpayers, a contribution capped at $250 million. The taxpayer cost would grow to an estimated $400 million over 20 years with interest. THe state's would kick in $80 million. Milwaukee County Executive, Chris Abele  says the plan is in the best interest of taxpayers.
 
 
 
The deal must now pass the Milwaukee Common Council and, more importantly, the GOP controlled Legislature.....where some have said the plan does not belong in the state budget....but an attached amendment to the budget.

Same Day, Different Race for the Fourth

Written by

Riverfest in La Crosse already includes patriotic activities for the 4th of July...but this year, a couple more holiday-themed events are being added. The morning of the 4th, a Saturday, will feature the Firecracker 4 Mile Run-Walk and the Liberty Dash mile-long race. Emily Sturmoski from the city park and rec department says the Liberty event will be for two different levels of runner, competitive and just plain fun level.

 

Both races replace the 5-K and 10-K Chileda Classic runs, which were held for more than 30 years in connection with Riverfest.

They have more questions to ask before settling on a new police chief in Campbell. After interviewing La Crosse police Sergeant Drew Gavrilos last night, members of the Campbell town board announced that they will interview one other candidate next Wednesday, and could make a hiring decision then. The town has gone without a full-time police chief for almost an entire year, since the previous chief was put on leave for harassing a local resident, and then stepped down from his post.
