La Crosse police are expected to announce an arrest in this week's murder of a 35-year-old woman...
Chief Ed Kondracki has a news conference planned for 10 o'clock. It's reported that a 44-year-old man was booked early today on a murder charge. Kristen Rodgers was found dead in a north La Crosse parking lot on Tuesday, and Kondracki says the death may be drug-related. Another man arrested this week on drug charges reportedly has sold drugs to Rodgers, according to the La Crosse County D-A's office.
The mining company that says it doesn't want to do business in Wisconsin any more may not be gone for good.
Assemblyman Steve Doyle of Onalaska predicts that the Gogebic Mining company can be wooed back to Wisconsin, if an appealing mining bill can be passed.
Gogebic blamed the state Senate's failure to pass mining regulations for its decision to stop a 700-job project in northern Wisconsin. Democrat Doyle thinks the lesson to be learned from the mining fight is that the two parties must be more willing to work together.
Dane County Judge David Flanagan, on Tuesday, temporarily blocked enforcement of Wisconsin's controversial new voter identification law, just weeks before the state's April 3rd presidential primary, prompting supporters of the law to vow they were likely to appeal. But it was learned he also signed a petition to recall Governor Scott Walker back in November. Walker's reaction?
Wisconsin’s local election clerks received guidance yesterday on how to proceed, after a judge temporarily halted the state’s voter ID law on Tuesday. La Crosse County Clerk, Ginny Denkmeyer, says most parts of the law will stand though.
Denkmeyer said voters still have to follow new time limits for voting absentee and they still must live at their present addresses for 28 days instead of the previous 10.
