A La Crosse man who held up a La Crosse pet store this Spring, has pleaed guilty to the charge of attempted robbery with use of force.
Two men who have worked on the expansion at Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse are out of the hospital, after separate accidents.
Each man fell at least 15 feet from scaffolding at the construction site on Wednesday, but the two falls were not related. Gundersen Lutheran spokesman Chris Stauffer says safety inspectors are still looking into the situation.
Stauffer admits there was confusion among emergency responders, when they received two calls within five minutes about falls at the hospital site.

But plans are moving ahead to transfer the Campbell Town Library from the town hall to a former church on Lakeshore Drive. The town board approved the 112-thousand dollar deal in March. Now, town leaders including clerk Chad Hawkins are working on ways to raise money to remodel the church, including a fundraiser next month.
One reason the town board used to justify the library expansion was to make Campbell self-sufficient, to avoid being annexed to the city of La Crosse.

Construction begins in a few weeks for the 30-million dollar Eagle Crest South, on land along 7th Street provided by Gundersen Lutheran. Todd Wilson, the CEO of Bethany Lutheran Homes, says the existing Eagle Crest North complex in Onalaska will set a good example for the new hospice center.
More than 150 apartments for seniors and hospice patients will be located at Eagle Crest. Wilson says Gundersen and Mayo had started planning a similar facility, but the project ran into 'difficulties.' Eagle Crest is scheduled to open late next year.
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.
