Graffiti Artist May Avoid La Crosse County Trial

Written by

A suspected graffiti artist in La Crosse County could enter a negotiated plea next month...

A plea hearing is planned on September 20th for Bryant Koscianski of Onalaska. He was arrested in early July on charges of spray-painting dozens of graffiti symbols around La Crosse. A police search of Koscianski's home uncovered over 100 cans of spray paint, and a billboard where he apparently practiced graffiti technique. He's also facing charges in Minnesota of causing about a million dollars in damage to railroad equipment sprayed with graffiti.

District Allows Boy Scouts To Rent......Is It Ok

Written by

The Boy Scouts of America have reaffirmed its policy of excluding gays. But does that have an impact on renting school buildings where there are discrimination policy's in place?

La Crosse School Superintendent, Randy Nelson, says the Boy Scouts do rent buildings from the district for different events. But what about their policy against those that discriminate?

Nelson says after years of court cases nationwide.....they have to follow in line with renting to organizations like the Boys and Girls Clubs and Parks and Recreation. The Scouts’ say that the exclusion policy is absolutely the best policy for the 102 year old organization.

Pollsters Need More Training

Written by

Foul play or confusion? Hundreds of voters called a hotline to report voter issues at the Scott Walker recall vote. Some voters said they were asked for photo identification at the voting booth, even though Wisconsin recently struck down a law that would have made it necessary. And some college students felt they were treated unfairly. The solution?

Andrea Kaminsky heads the state's League of Women Voters. Some of the problems they saw were the same ones identified by Republicans in the state Senate election in Racine County where a recount took place. But unlike the GOP, the League does not say that voter fraud might have been committed.

The Badger State Is Toxic

Written by

Wisconsin has been ranked among the worst states when it comes to power plant pollution. New data by the Natural Resources Defense Council ranked the Badger State among the top 20 most toxic states in the country for toxic air pollution linked to electric power plants.

At the same time, the report found a 19 percent decrease in all air toxics emitted from power plants in 2010, the most recent data available, compared to 2009 levels. The welcomed drop, which also includes a 4 percent decrease in mercury emissions, results from two key factors.

John Walke, NRDC's clean air director. says the analysis judged states on how much pollution their residents are exposed to from coal and oil fired power plants.

The future of a 'park anywhere' zone during La Crosse winters is in limbo, pending a vote expected by the city council next month.

The public works department wants to end the three-year experiment, because many drivers have ignored alerts telling them to move their cars on certain nights so streets can be plowed.  UWL neighborhood resident Charley Weeth thinks it's time to end the special zone, too.  But university students are asking City Hall to continue the special zone. Drivers in the rest of La Crosse have to park on alternate sides overnight from November to the end of March.

We're still about four weeks away from Labor Day...but for some people in the tourism business, the peak travel season only lasts for another week-and-a-half.

After about the 20th of August, long family trips are scarce in some parts of the country...especially in areas where school starts before Labor Day. Dave Clements from the La Crosse Convention and Visitor Bureau has seen that trend happen. He believes schools and industry are still following patterns that existed when the country was more rural, decades ago.

 

A University of Minnesota tourism study says the number of overnight family trips, even early in the summer, drops off sharply in communities where school starts in late August.

Anthony Lee already was stuck in jail on a high cash bond, for an alleged break-in and a fight with La Crosse police last month...

Now, Lee has an eight-month jail sentence to serve for running from a cop two years ago. Before his July arrest, Lee had gone missing for nearly a year after a domestic incident. he apologized in court today for his behavior.

 

Lee's family tells Judge Elliott Levine that the 23-year-old sometimes gets into trouble when he goes off medication.
