The U.S. Defense Appropriations bill hit the House floor Friday. How did U.S. Representative Ron Kind vote? We asked Kind right after the vote was taken.
Kind says ot only does the budget exceed the President's request by $3 billion, but it spends hundreds of millions on weapons and equipment not requested by the Pentagon.
Penn State loses 10 football scholarships per year and the ability to play in a bowl game for four years. It also gets fined $60 million, and all football wins from 1998-2011 are being vacated. All due to the event surrounding former coach, Jerry Sandusky and the child abuse scandal. We talked with Penn State Alum and UW- La Crosse Chancellor, Joe Gow, about what the trickle down effect is on his campus.
Penn State must also adhere to new rules and policies put in place by the NCAA and will be put on probation for 5 years.
Two cases of gunfire reported in La Crosse over the weekend...
The first happened Saturday afternoon on Charles Street, in north La Crosse. A fight involving members of local gangs resulted in one person firing a handgun several times into the air. Nobody was hurt, but six people were arrested on various charges after the incident.
In the second shooting, a local man was shot and wounded during a fight at a party on South 7th Street early Sunday. Leon Hesser-Thompson is being treat for minor injuries at a local hospital. Nobody has been arrested for firing the shots.
Where a couple of fugitives from Black River Falls wind up is anybody's guess. But the latest reported sightings of James Misleveck and James Newman have them in the Hillsboro/Elroy area near the Juneau and Vernon county lines. The two men walked away from a minimum security facility in Black River Falls on Tuesday night. Since then, it's been a string of car thieving, kidnapping, gun stealing and, at this point, somehow eluding police. Police say the men should be considered armed and dangerous. They're driving a stolen black 1996 Chrysler Concord.
