Winona State Student Was Driver Of Submerged Car

Written by

A Winona State student who reportedly worked in La Crosse as a bartender is identified as the driver whose car fell into Swift Creek near City Brewery.

Ellie Ahmann of Winona was 21 years old. La Crosse police say Ahmann's body was recovered from her car Wednesday afternoon, several hours after tire tracks were found to lead from the end of Jackson Street down to the creek. An autopsy will be conducted tomorrow. Ahmann was living in Winona while attending college. She was originally from the St. Paul area.

Ever since a recent Viterbo graduate drowned after drinking two years ago, that graduate's mother has been busy campaigning to have certain types of high-proof alcohol banned.

Luanne Wielichowski hopes the Wisconsin Legislature passes a ban on high-potency liquor in 2014.  The bill being circulated in the Assembly would set five-figure fines and possible prison time for stores that sell products like Everclear.  At least one state lobbying group is expected to fight the proposed ban. Jeff Wielichowski drank Everclear with Red Bull and Gatorade the night that he drowned in his family's swimming pool in 2011.

If you want to have a wedding at the Riverside Park bandshell or a graduation party at Myrick Park in 2014, you'd better be up early on Thursday morning...

The prime shelters and park facilities in La Crosse get booked quickly on the first business day of a new year. The City Hall park and rec office takes reservations in-person starting at 8:30 a-m on January 2nd. And the on-line reservations open even earlier that day, just after midnight. The reservations have to be paid in full at the time they're made, so have your checkbooks or credit cards ready.
