Arming military facilities a good idea

24 July 2015

When a gunman opened fire at a military recruiting center and a U.S. Navy facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee last week, those who suddenly found themselves under attack didn't shoot back....

Some in La Crosse are using lots of water to try and keep lawns green.  Water getting pumped from the city's water utility prove that out.   But the volume levels during this drought summer don't come close to the all time high of about 37 million gallons pumped on one day in a very hot, dry summer day in 1988.  Highest this summer: about 21 million gallons.  Why the change?  Awareness mostly, says water utility manager Mark Johnson

 

 

Average water volumes in the city for July are typically 13 to 14 million gallons per day.  The utility has a max capacity of 40 million gallons.

Besides the two shootings in La Crosse this week-end, there was other gunplay. Cops have arrested 18 year-old Alvin Campbell for waving a gun around and carrying it in his pants pocket without a license. Campbell at first denied having a gun but amended that statement when police found the gun under some bushes. He said he bought the gun from another guy to protect himself from the jealous boyfriend of a woman he had sex with. Said he never could figure out how to take the gun off of safety.  Meanwhile, police continue to investigate two separate shootings over the week-end.  One in which a 19 year-old was struck and is recovering from his wounds.

Drunk Driver Busted with Two Sober Passengers

Written by

There's drunk drivers and then there's plastered drivers.   A 22 year-old guy picked up by La Crosse police this week-end was something more of the latter.  Jackson Broer picked up his first drunk driving arrest on Sunday.  Blew a .345, more than four times the legal limit for driving.  Cops say Broer was so bad off he couldn't figure out how to open the window when they approached.  In the car; an open bottle of whiskey and two completely sober passengers.  Broer is apparenlty also a suspect in a hit and run from February.

James Misleveck and James Newman are still on the loose and some local authorities feel they may still be in the area. The two walked away from the Black River Falls Correctional facility last Tuesday night. Monroe County Sheriff, Pete Quirin, says the phone calls keep coming in.....with few leads happening.

Deputies from Vernon, Juneau and Monroe Counties have all been working the case and no strong leads have come in yet. Quirin says he is very surprised the two are still on the lam.

Gow Reacts To Penn State Ruling

Written by

Penn State loses 10 football scholarships per year and the ability to play in a bowl game for four years. It also gets fined $60 million, and all football wins from 1998-2011 are being vacated. All due to the event surrounding former coach, Jerry Sandusky and the child abuse scandal. We talked with Penn State Alum and UW- La Crosse Chancellor, Joe Gow, about what the trickle down effect is on his campus.

Penn State must also adhere to new rules and policies put in place by the NCAA and will be put on probation for 5 years.

Fugitives Seem to be Heading South

Written by
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.
