A drunk driving suspect is not pleading guilty...because he says he can't remember the accident he caused.
But David Carlson of La Crosse pleads 'no contest' to crashing his motorcycle, while drunk, in the town of Farmington. Carlson and a teenage passenger were hurt in the July accident. He's been arrested on O-W-I charges about a dozen times in the past. Judge Todd Bjerke says there's enough evidence to find Carlson guilty.
Carlson's blood alcohol just after the cycle crash was measured at .17.
La Crosse TV anchor Jennifer Livingston seems to be everywhere in the media today...
One day after speaking out about bullying during a Channel 8 newscast, Livingston was a guest on three network morning news shows, and has been mentioned on others. And her name turns up 22-million references on Yahoo. She told the 'CBS This Morning' program that she didn't make the statements about bullying to get publicity.

Six incumbent Congressmen in Wisconsin are being backed for re-election by the National Rifle Association...including one Democrat, Ron Kind.
La Crosse's Congressman rated an 'A' from the NRA for his positions on more than a dozen issues...from opposing a ban on semi-automatic weapons to supporting certain concealed-carry bills. Southern Minnesota Democrat Tim Walz also gets an 'A'...as does his Republican challenger, Allen Quist. Kind's opponent, Republican Ray Boland, gets no letter grade because he didn't respond to a questionnaire from the NRA.
