He was supposed to be released from prison two years ago...but the state of Wisconsin calls him sexually violent.
Since then, 52-year-old Homer Perren Junior of La Crosse County has been held by the state health department, awaiting a commitment trial. That trial is now scheduled for next month in La Crosse. Perren was sent to prison in 2001 for an alleged sexual assault of a minor. Investigators believe Perren will commit other sex crimes if he's allowed back into the community.
If the election were held today, there's a good chance the next mayor of La Crosse would be named 'Randy' or 'Randall'...
As of Tuesday, just two men have told the city clerk's office that they want to run for mayor in April...Randall Czapiewski, and Randy Magno. Candidates have until January 2nd to file papers with clerk Teri Lehrke. And Teri's staff will carefully check everything written on the nomination forms, and look for duplicate names.
Lehrke says if you try signing papers for more than one candidate seeking a single office, your name will only count the first time that it's verified at City Hall.
You say that old set of Christmas tree bulbs handed down over the years has conked out?
You could toss them in the trash, but La Crosse County has a better idea...take them to Rotary Lights, and have them recycled for raw materials. The advice comes from county sustainability specialist Nick Nichols, who says Alter Recycling pays for the metal removed from the lighting sets, and gives the money to Rotary Lights. Nichols also recommends replacing old Christmas light bulbs with LED sets, which use less electricity.
