Storage Building Burns, Suspect Arrested

Written by

Charges could be filed against a 'person of interest' arrested yesterday, in connection with a storage building fire in Shelby. Inspectors still haven't determined what caused the fire that gutted an Edwards Mini-Storage building...but the person taken into custody is suspected of unlawfully handling burning materials. Assistant Shelby Fire Chief Tony Holinka doubts that much of the property in the building can be saved.   Many of the storage unit doors had to be ripped open by the fire department to get stored materials out.

Doyle: Budget's a Mess

Written by

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said that the Joint Finance Committee is now unlikely to even meet this week. Haggling over transportation funding and a new Milwaukee Bucks stadium are at issue. Not to the liking of Democratic State Rep. Steve Doyle who says he's been getting ongoing messages from his colleagues on both sides of the aisle who are concerned about the apparent mess that the state budget has turned into. 

 

Doyle says once this state budget is passed, republicans in a marginal district may want to watch their jobs as people in those districts won't forget their votes that were passed come election time.

Competing interests among emergency responders are, for now, sinking the chances for a new La Crosse Dive Rescue Team building on Isle la Plume.

The volunteer team has a benefactor willing to pay for the new building. They've got a site picked out. But the city's police and fire departments want in on the action and so nothing is happening, says the team's Jack Haase, which is disappointing, considering they were hoping to be in a new building by the end of this year. 

Police, fire and the team have been trying to negotiate a deal on a new building for the last six months. Police have suggested sharing a building with the fire department and leasing a space to the dive rescue team.

E-Cigs Part of County Retailer Tobacco Checks

Written by

Local tobacco retailer checks will now have an added focus to them. Making sure stores don t sell e-cigarettes to minors. That according to the 7 C s Health Initiative Coalition. Alison Glodowski says minor tobacco user rates are on the rise over the past five years.  She believes that's because the county is doing fewer retailer checks. 

 

Now, she says they are doing about 58 checks. And she says the 2014 Wisconsin Youth Tobacco Survey shows 7.9% of our state s high school students currently use e-cigarettes. That number has tripled in just 1 year.

Onalaska Petitioners Seek Traffic Calming

Written by

People living near the Coulee Golf Bowl in Onalaska hope City Hall will take action to make traffic safer in their neighborhood. More than 30 persons have signed a petition for traffic calming on Evenson Drive, north of the golf course. According to the petition, drivers are speeding on a street where many children live, and homeowners would like some change made to the street to slow the cars down. The city says it examined traffic on Evenson Drive, and found that there were no accidents on that street during a three-month study period.

Two Accused in Tomah Stabbing Set for Trials

Written by

The two men charged with a stabbing death in a Tomah motel are pleading 'not guilty.' Trials will be scheduled soon for Zachary Davis and Sebastian Martinez. They're suspected of killing Derek Magnuson earlier this year, after a fight at a motel. Davis and Martinez are suspected of committing crimes in other states after that murder, and they were arrested in Tennessee after reportedly using a credit card belonging to Magnuson. They entered pleas on Friday before a Monroe County judge. Martinez has a pre-trial hearing at the end of this month. Davis will have a similar hearing in September.
