New policy allows transgenders to join military
No agencies in La Crosse were included
We tend to think of drug abuse as a young person's issue. But a new report finds that is not always the case. In fact, the report from the U.S....
Somebody killed two people at a La Crosse camera shop...but Jeff Lepsch didn't do it.
That's the defense argument being made today, at the start of Lepsch's trial for the shooting deaths of Paul and A.J. Petras of La Crosse. Defense attorney Vincent Rust says police didn't find anything at Lepsch's home which would prove he was connected to the murders. Rust says Lepsch was always looking for photo equipment to sell, but he never tried looking at May's Photo, where the murders occurred. Prosecutors say stolen goods from the store were found at Lepsch's home.
La Crosse's second murder trial in just over a month begins Tuesday.
A jury will be chosen for the two-week trial of Jeffrey Lepsch of Dakota...accused of killing a La Crosse camera shop owner and his son during a robbery. The murders of Paul and A-J Petras occurred days before Ron Tischer became La Crosse's new police chief last fall. Tischer mentioned the investigation at his swearing-in.
Lepsch was arrested a few weeks later. Last month, a La Crosse County jury convicted Cain Moss of reckless homicide for supplying a fatal dose of drugs to Anthony DuCharme.
A tornado set down in southern Trempealeau County late Monday afternoon...

MILWAUKEE (AP) Building owners along the coast of Lake Michigan are getting creative in dealing with nuisance gulls.
The gull population has been growing for decades, and the birds are a nuisance. They nest on building roofs, chew through wires and leave droppings that can send nasty smells into the ventilation system. Compounding the issue is federal law that prohibits trapping and moving them. Sometimes the government allows people to remove eggs from a nest or coat eggs with corn oil that prevents them from hatching.
Others have turned to creative solutions. Some building owners use lasers, noisemakers and ultrasonic waves to make the birds uncomfortable. Others use a grid of wires to make it hard for the birds to land and fold their wings.
