Incomplete police chase data raises suspicions

01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

A very hot summer has gone by in Vernon County, without much movement on a notorious cold case.

Last May, the sheriff's department in Viroqua asked the public to help solve the murder of an unknown woman that occurred in 1984. Sheriff John Spears has been trying to make the media beyond western Wisconsin aware of the killing.  The woman's body had no hands, and she didn't match any missing person description at the time. Investigators believe she was killed outside Vernon County, and the body was brought over county lines.

Riverboat lovers in La Crosse will get their first look this week at the newest paddlewheeler to cruise the upper Mississippi.

The 'Queen of the Mississippi' is on its first trip from St. Louis to St. Paul, and will arrive at La Crosse's Riverside Park early Thursday morning. The 150-passenger boat will be docked in La Crosse for about 10 hours before continuing upriver, and it will make three more visits to La Crosse this fall. Also, the American Queen will return to the city on September 19th, for the first time in four years. The old 'Mississippi Queen' was dismantled last year, and the Delta Queen is permanently docked in Tennessee.

Written by

UW-La Crosse now as two strong allies in the area. UW-System Regents, Brent Smith of La Crosse and Gary Roberts of Onalaksa. How imporatant is that to the local university?

Chancellor, Joe Gow, says both have visited the campus a few times and when a budget was approved a few weeks ago, what they saw in some instances, was included in the budget....primarily on the construction side.

Tens of Thousands in Fire Fees Collected

Written by

There was plenty of grousing when a vast list of new fees went into effect for the city of La Crosse at the beginning of the year.  But those fees have meant a surge in revenue for some departments.  The fire department, which began collecting new fees for everything from fire pits to false alarms on January first, has padded the city's coffers with tens of thousands of dollars.  The recreational fire pit permit alone has generated 23 thousand dollars.  A fire inspection fee for businesses has brought in 67 thousand dollars so far this year.  Those fees can range from about a hundred dollars for the smallest businesses to several hundred dollars.

An apparent fight over growing marijuana may have led to a shooting last night in Jackson County...

A 23-year-old man has been treated for a bullet wound in the back, and an older man is accused of the shooting. Sixty-one-year-old Michael Charles of the town of Franklin is being held without bond in the Jackson County Jail, on a charge of endangering safety. A 22-caliber rifle was seized at the Charles home near Taylor, along with some marijuana. Sheriff's officers say Charles was upset with the shooting victim for going to a place where marijuana was being grown.

Written by

The man who admits to shooting a La Crosse woman last March during a burglary could get up to 40 years in prison.

Kong Vue pleads guilty to the murder of Sara Hougom. He and his uncle, Pao Choua Vue, could be sentenced together in November for what police say was a random shooting. The negotiated count for Kong Vue is reckless homicide. Three other charges were dismissed.
