01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

Police link a La Crosse man to an October armed robbery by finding that he has items stolen from the victims...

Guns and wallets containing victim I-D's were discovered in the closet of suspect Areschial (uh-RAY-shul) Page. Investigator Andrew Rosenow says a police informant heard Page admit to planning the robbery at a 5th Avenue home.

 

Judge Scott Horne rules that there's enough evidence to try Page and De'Aaron Appleton for the October robbery. Horne also denied a request to lower Page's bond of 25-thousand dollars.

Black River Falls Man Faces Homicide Charge

Written by

 

A Black River Falls man will face a homicide charge after he was involved in a fatal crash earlier this year. Jackson County D.A. Gerald Fox has charged Thomas Jahnke with homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle. Police say Jahnke had a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit the night of the crash.

Kayla Konemann of Lyndon Station died August 10th when the car she was riding in was hit by Jahnke's pickup truck near Black River Falls. Police say he ran a stop sign at a high rate of speed. They also say he did not have a valid driver's license. The driver of the car, Myles Vollmer of Portage, was critically injured. An additional charge of injury by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle was filed against Jahnke in regards to Vollmer's injuries.

Both men were airlifted to area hospitals due to the seriousness of the injuries suffered in the crash.

Walker Talks About School Shooting

Written by

 

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker says there are no perfect solutions to preventing a repeat of last week's mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. During an interview Tuesday, Walker says it will take several weeks to get a true answer on what led to the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary, where a 20-year-old gunman killed 20 children and six adults before taking his own life.

Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry supports allowing teachers and administrators to carry concealed handguns. But, Walker says any politician that provides a simple answer at this point is jumping to conclusions.

The governor says early intervention for those with mental health issues and access to community-based care are matters that need to be addressed.

Same Day Registrations Discussed Today

Written by

 

(AP) The president of a group representing municipal clerks and the head of the Wisconsin chapter of the League of Women Voters say allowing voters to register at the polls on election day has served the state well and should not be eliminated. They and others spoke about the issue at a Tuesday meeting of the Government Accountability Board, which oversees elections in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association president Vikki Zuehlke says the association has signed a resolution opposing the elimination of election day registration, in part over concerns of the $5.2 million cost outlined in a GAB report.

League of Women Voters of Wisconsin executive director Andrea Kaminski says there is no evidence that same-day registration has caused significant problems.

Fundraiser For Suicide Support Group Brings In $5K

Written by

More than five thousand dollars was raised over the weekend in La Crosse, to help fund a suicide prevention group.

Dave Clements of the La Crosse Convention Bureau says this was the fourth year of the fund-raiser at Schmidty's restaurant.  Clements founded the 'Joe Was Just Joe Foundation' after his son committed suicide nearly five years ago. A silent auction brought in much of the money, including 125 dollars for a poster promoting a 1985 John Mellencamp concert at the La Crosse Center, when Clements was the center manager.

The clock is ticking down toward the end of the year, with little progress made lately on some village improvement projects in Holmen.

New village offices and an expanded library are being proposed for village-owned land on the Holmen Kornfest grounds. But county library director Chris McArdle Rojo doesn't know when construction on new buildings could happen.  The Holmen library is located in a former grocery store. The village talked about moving the library into a church near the middle school, but that plan fell through about three years ago.
