Two critical pieces of information were released Monday morning pertaining to
Two new challengers to Congressman Ron Kind are introducing themselves in western Wisconsin...
Chippewa Falls attorney Karen Mueller, originally from La Crosse, is launching a Republican campaign to defeat Democrat Kind. Just last week, farmer Tony Kurtz of Prairie du Chien launched his campaign in the 3rd District. Kurtz and Mueller would join Chris Anderson and Ken Van Doren in the Republican primary this summer. A GOP primary has not been needed in most 3rd District elections since Kind took office in 1996, because usually, just one Republican has decided to run against the Democrat.
Houses within two or three blocks of a shopping center in Prairie du Chien were evacuated last night, because of embers blowing from the site of the Slumberland fire.
The furniture store at Blackhawk Crossing in Prairie was destroyed in the fire Sunday night, and smoke damage was reported at most other nearby businesses in the strip mall. No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire hasn't been announced yet. The store was built as a large supermarket in the early 1960's. Slumberland moved in a few years ago.
