Julie Bartels Named Mrs. Oktoberfest

Written by

Another Oktoberfest secret is out...

Guests at the Mrs. Oktoberfest reception last night got to toast the new 'Mrs.'...retired nurse Julie Bartels. She worked with Franciscan and Mayo for more than 30 years. While her selection was kept secret from the public until this week, Julie learned the news last May, after being invited to a luncheon under phony pretenses.

 

The last member of the 2012 royal family, the Festmaster, will be introduced at the Festmaster's Ball tomorrow night.

La Crosse County has its own boat patrol out on the Mississippi during the summer and early fall...but the city of La Crosse hasn't operated its own patrol boat for many years.

They'll have one this weekend, though. The La Crosse police showed off their patrol boat for reporters this morning, along the levee at Riverside Park. Assistant chief Rob Abraham says the boat is intended to improve the river-watch that already happens on weekend nights.

 

Abraham says the city will continue to rely on the sheriff's department boat for many patrols, because it's 'cost-prohibitive' for the city to have its own patrol boat full-time.  Police also will increase their bicycle patrol during the opening weekend of the fest.

Parking Changes Complicate Business At Lax Center

Written by

The latest wrinkle in La Crosse's downtown parking situation could mean problems for people doing business at the La Crosse Center.

City Hall recently reduced some parking areas near the center from 12 hours to only two hours. Center manager Art Fahey says the drivers who bring in buses and semis for concerts and other events need to be able to park for hours at a time.

 

The civic center hosted the state counties' association meeting this week...bringing several hundred visitors downtown for a couple of days.

Medical Examiner Says Rodgers Was Strangled To Death

Written by

Strangling was the most likely cause of death for Kristen Rodgers of La Crosse...

The medical examiner who conducted the autopsy on Rodgers explains his findings at the murder trial of Isaiah Golatt. Dr. Vincent Tranchida of Dane County says severe neck damage is strong evidence of strangulation.  Golatt is accused of killing Rodgers during a drug deal last March, and leaving her body in a lot. Tranchida says exposure to the cold had minimal effect on Rodgers, despite claims by Golatt's lawyers that hypothermia was a major cause of the woman's death.
