Sparta Police are still investigating a robbery at a dollar store that happened last weekend.

Police say it happened around 5:35 p.m. Sunday at Family Dollar on Black River Street. Workers there say a man went up to the cashier and demanded money. He threatened to kill the employees if they didn't give him money. He ran from the store with an unknown amount of cash and smokes. No one was hurt.

If you have information, you're asked to call the Sparta Police Department.

Important business often moves at a snail's pace in La Crosse City Hall...unless there's some urgency to the issue, such as whether to close a branch of the city library.

When a proposed shut down of the South Branch was avoided this fall, Mayor Tim Kabat announced that he would appoint a task force to look at ways of keeping the building open in future years. Library board president Tom Sleik worries that the mayor is taking too long to put together such a task force, and city council approval of appointments normally takes a month or two.  Sleik believes the library committee would not be able to begin work until March, and the library has promised to start public hearings on the 2015 budget next June.

WIZM's Number 6 Local Story For 2013

Written by

A case of a cop caught stealing drugs ranks high on our newsroom's list of top local stories from 2013.

The investigation of former police lieutenant Brian Thomson is number six on the year-end list. Thomson's case came to light suddenly in August, when La Crosse police announced his resignation on the same day he was brought to court. The department suspected Thomson of tampering with drug evidence being stored at City Hall, and got proof when he reportedly took fake pills from a package that specifically was planted to catch him. Earlier this month, Thomson pled guilty to attempting to possess narcotics. He's scheduled to be sentenced in late January.
