No Good Deed Left Unpunished For Veteran

Written by

A well meaning vet could be on the hook for almost two thousand dollars after trying to help out, what he thought was, another veteran who needed a hand.  La Crosse police say a 73 year-old from Georgia was at the airport car rental place asking about veteran discounts when he was approached by a rough-looking guy who identified himself as a veteran and needed help getting a rental car.  The well-meaning older vet rented the younger guy a car and put it on his credit card.  Later told police he did it because it was Memorial Day week-end and knows how hard it is to deal with post-war health problems.  Three weeks later, the car had not been returned.  Finally found parked at the Mayo parking lot in La Crosse.  Police are looking for an Onalaska man in the apparent theft.

City Hall Hit With Garbage Questions

Written by

La Crosse city hall getting bombarded by calls about garbage collection.   The city's new garbage regulations are in place and many in the city are confused about what to do, apparently.   Postcards detailing some of the changes will go out next week.   Some of the queries right now are about garbage cans themselves.  Public works director Dale Hexom tells us, in general, if you buy a can with a lid, it's probably going to work under the new rules.  Also, although the rules limit size to 48 gallon cans, Hexom says a fifty gallon can will work, as long as its not too heavy.  To get rid of old cans, Hexom says, just put them out, marked as trash.

A 52 year old Town of Sparta man was in Monroe County Court yesterday to hear charges that he sexually assaulted one of his grandaughters the past 5 years, since she was in kindergarten. The man, who WIZM news won't name to protect the child, was charged with 2 counts of child sexual assault, repeated sexual assault and enticement.  According to the criminal complaint, the man admitted to bathing the young girl on several occasions, following her into her bedroom and, during different parts of the day, would sexually touch the girl and have her touch him. The girl, who's mother and grandmother were home at the time of some of the assaults, stated that she was not afraid to say anything to anyone about what was going on. At one point, she told investigators that her grandfather told her her he was not worried about the little girl telling police what was happening, but he didn't want her telling her grandmother about it. The man faces almost 200 years behind bars if convicted of all charges. He remains free on a cash bond.

Area hospitals are prepared for people to come in or to be brought in.....all suffering from the effects of the heat. Kim Lombard of Gunderson Lutheran says there are signs you should be looking for if you have been in the heat too long.

Lombard says of course keep plenty of water around......stay out of the sun......keep the AC going....and check on those that may not have air conditioning.

A Sparta man has been charged with vehicular homicide for a 2009 drunk driving crash that killed his brother. 26 year old Jason Schodeberg was arrested last Friday for allegedly driving drunk and crashing a vehicle July 26th, 2009 on Highway 33 near Cashton. His brother, 30 year old Glenn Schodeberg of Leon, was found pinned beneath it. He was dead at the scene. Jason Schodeberg left the crash scene, apparently trying to find help, but was found later by EMT's and was treated for injuries. At the time of the accident, investigators could not determine who was driving the vehicle. Jason Schodeberg told police he begged his brother not to drive and was a passenger. The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says DNA evidence recovered from the car's air bags and witnesses helped them determine Jason Schodeberg was, in fact, the driver. Schodeberg appeared in court Monday on several charges, including homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. He was released on a $5 thousand cash bond. He will be back in court July 9th.

You think La Crosse has been around a long time?

A city that's 150 years old is nothing, when you compare it to 'the old country.' La Crosse's German sister city of Friedberg was founded in the year 1264...which means they're getting ready for their community's 750th anniversary in 2014.  Meanwhile, Friedberg Mayor Peter Bergmair has made it to La Crosse this week to help us celebrate our country's 236th birthday. Bergmair will represent Friedberg at a special sister-city booth during Riverfest, which begins tomorrow.

The advantage goes to which political party?  That's a question about last week's supreme court decision on federal health care overhauls that has yet to be answered.  La Crosse democratic party chair, Vicki Burke says her party should do well with the victory.  Because it benefits all Americans

 

 

But republicans are hoping the unpopularity of the individual insurance mandate will result in democratic losses and the end of the Obama presidency.

Fireworks and firecrackers will be everywhere around the U-S this week...except maybe in places where the risk of wildfires is high.

About half the counties in Wisconsin are considered very dry by the DNR, and Crawford and Richland Counties have been placed under an emergency burning order until further notice. Catherine Koele from the DNR says several factors were used to decide where bans on campfires and outdoor smoking would go.  Cities that have holiday fireworks planned can still have those displays, even if they're within the restricted zone.
