Some local life-savers will get recognition tonight in La Crosse...
The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association and the La Crosse Fire Department are hosting a 'Heroes Benefit' tonight at the Eagles Club downtown. The event will honor first-responders who have saved people that experienced cardiac arrest, and will raise money to buy defibrillators to be stationed in public locations. Tickets are still available from Assistant Fire Chief Warren Thomas at (608) 789-8042.
Why has a Winona judge set 10-million dollars bond for the suspect in a La Crosse double murder?
Winona County Attorney Karin Sonneman requested the high bond for Jeffrey Lepsch, because a 10-million bond in Minnesota is equivalent to one million in Wisconsin.

It could take a month or two to get him transferred to Wisconsin, to face charges in the May's Photo murders of Paul and A.J. Petras.
