A child rapist has been released in La Crosse. La Crosse police say 30 year-old Troy Baker is the latest sex offender to get released into the community. Baker was convicted of first degree sexual assault of a child after raping a 12 year-old girl and a 15 year-old girl. Police say Baker will be living at Attic on Rose street on the northside across from the Three Rivers Waldorf school. Baker is not to have contact with any children.
Want to help the police out a little bit? Try locking your doors. A number of home and car entries recently likely have La Crosse police wondering if the simple process of door-locking is becoming a lost art. The latest is enough to send a chill up the spine of any young woman. Cops say a 21 year-old Viterbo student was alone in her apartment and in the shower early yesterday evening when a thief walked in through the unlocked front door, stole her purse, a flat-screen and an X-Box and left without much of a trace. Took no more than 20 minutes. Cops have swabbed the place for DNA but, so far, no suspects.
The problematic garbage study for La Crosse county is part of public record now. And nowhere does the study recommend starting up a government-run garbage service. The study is the one that is at the root of the ethics allegations against La Crosse mayor Matt Harter. He's accused of advocating against a study for the harm it could cause his family's garbage business. But the waste evaluation merely points out some shortcomings in the current systems. Like in recycling. County sustainability guy, Nick Nichols says La Crosse and Onalaska are clearly behind in that regard, both cities having half the recycling rate of other, similar communities studied. He says the study clearly shows there's ways to greatly increase recycling rate.
