Another Miss La Crosse-Oktoberfest moves up the pageant ladder...

The reigning Miss Oktoberfest, Kate Gorman, has won the Miss Wisconsin title for this year, meaning that she'll compete at the Miss America contest in January. Gorman is now the second straight Miss Wisconsin from La Crosse County, succeeding Raeanna Johnson of Holmen, also a former Miss Oktoberfest.

The original physical education building at U-W-L will be shut down for a while, because of a weekend fire.

On Saturday night, flames broke out in the basement of Wittich Hall, directly north of Main Hall. Nobody was hurt, and the cause of the fire isn't known yet.  The Wittich fire happened less than two blocks from the football stadium, where thousands of people were gathered Saturday night for the Freedom Fest concert. Hetzel says the festival did not interfere with fire department activity.

A friend of Eric Koula's says he believes investigators wanted him to change his story...

That's what Mike Genz said when questioned in court today at Koula's murder trial in La Crosse. Genz is a defense witness who has said that he and Eric were doing tile work at a house in La Crosse on the afternoon that Eric's parents were killed in Barre Mills. Genz frequently said that the two of them left the house at 5:30 p-m, which would conflict with the police theory that Eric killed his mother 11 minutes later at a house that was eight miles away. Genz said today that they could have left sometime between 5 and 5:30. Genz says Eric was not behaving unusually either that afternoon, or two days later when they spent time together on a boathouse.

Kwik Trip Deal Approved by Council

Written by
Kwik Trip has its deal.  The La Crosse city council has agreed to a development arrangement with Kwik Trip that will lead to a big expansion in the industrial park.  Part of the agreement will return hundreds of thousands of dollars in property tax dollars to Kwik Trip based on the value of the property it creates.  The company will also rent some land from the city and then buy it when some contamination gets cleaned up.  The company is also in line to get a million dollars in job credits from the state for the hundred jobs it plans to create.

The prosecution in the Eric Koula murder case says Koula didn't have much money two years ago, but he had a lot of wheels.

Jurors were told on Thursday that Eric Koula owned several vehicles at the time his parents were killed, including two all-terrain vehicles and a snowmobile. Which could lead observers to wonder...if he was short of money, why didn't he try selling some of those vehicles? Defense attorney James Koby posed that question to prosecution witness Mary Jo Werner, who's an accountant.  Werner answered that Koula certainly could have sold his possessions to raise money, but he didn't.

 

Each side presented its own accountant as a witness...with evidence suggesting either that Eric Koula was driven to murder by huge debts, or else that he had lots of money and no reason to want to kill his parents. Today will mark the end of the second week of the trial, which could last another two weeks.
