Lots of changes recommended in Wisconsin in the voting process prior to the November election.  Those come in a report by a coalition of voting rights groups this week.  That would be overkill from the perspective of West Salem village administrator, Theresa Schnitzler.  She says the in-person voting is fine the way it is.  It's absentee voting that's a problem.  One of the issues is having to wait for ballots to come in until the Friday after the election

 

 

Schnitzler says she also had some would-be absentee voters who came in on the day before the election but new rules prohibited them from voting.

No charges yet in a campfire accident that left four children burned at an area campground back in June.   Houston county sheriff Doug Ely says he's getting close to wrapping up the investigation into the June 29th fire at Money Creek Haven Campground.  A man apparently dumped some sort of accelerant onto a smoldering campfire, causing the fuel container to explode and burning the children.  Four year-old Chloe Langen suffered the worst of the burns and flirted with death a few times before stabilizing at a burn center in St Paul.  Five year-old Annabelle Heyer was also burned badly and was flown to a hospital in Madison.

Lax Couple Facing Drug Warehousing Charges

Written by

A professed gang member and his wife face serious drug charges, including warehousing drugs, following a bust at their La Crosse home.

Raymond and Nicole Lewis are suspected of selling crack, ecstasy, and other drugs. Raymond tells police he used to belong to the Gangster Disciples. The district attorney's office says Nicole Lewis was very active in drug dealing out of her home, and has even conducted 'counter-surveillance' of police in her neighborhood.

Raymond Lewis also may be charged with injuring an officer's hand during the Wednesday arrests on Mormon Coulee Road.

The police chief thinks it's a good idea...and so does the postmaster.

But a proposal to ban pit bulls in Caledonia is drawing some protests...often from people outside the community. The city attorney, Tim Murphy, is searching for precedents.  A few months ago, a pit bull reportedly killed a smaller dog in Caledonia. Council members say the reactions they're hearing from residents come down on both sides of a ban.

Seems as though the two escapees from Black Rivers Falls brutalized a 71 year old convenience store clerk before their arrest Wednesday morning in Florida. Video tape shows James Misleveck and James Newman entering the store around 9 Sunday night, grabbing the clerk by his shirt from across the counter. The second suspect holding a knife, went around to the back of the counter where the clerk was standing. He opened the cash register and the second suspect grabbed the drawer from inside the register.

 

 

The first suspect also came around the counter, grabbed the man and threw him to the ground. He then proceeded to hit him several times in his head and stomach while he lay on the ground.  The second suspect, holding the register drawer set it down out of view of the camera. He then came back to where the clerk was, kicked the victim in the head and struck him several more times. The victim was initially transported to a hospital with serious injuries. Charges are pending in Hillsborough County, Florida now as well.

The driver was slowing down to a crawl, stopping at unmarked intersections, and spinning his wheels...

Those are the clues that a Sparta policeman used to pull over Paul Olson on suspicion of drunk driving two years ago. Olson claimed that the cop had no good reason to have him arrested, and tried to have his second O-W-I conviction overturned as a result. A Wisconsin appeals court disagrees with Olson. The court upholds the conviction, noting that the officer also smelled alcohol on Olson, heard him slurring his speech, and watched him walk unsteadily.
