Although small scale, up to 2,500 people, domestic operations exercises are held at Volk Field and Fort McCoy. But could they be coming to La Crosse in 2014? Volk Field and Fort McCoy have been selected as one of ten sites in the nation to do large scale domestic operations exercises. 5 to 8 thousand troops. Brendan Smith with Volk Field says it will allow local first responders to have hands on, real life mass casualty training, which in itself is a tremendous benefit to any community.

Other area venues being considered for exercises include the Juneau County Fairgrounds and Copeland Park in La Crosse. Smith says they are in the very beginning stages of talks with communities that could be involved.

Taggers Face Stiffer Penalties With New Proposals

Written by
The last year has seen a big surge in graffiti in La Crosse.  In an apparent response to the tagging, the city council is expected next week to pass new rules that aim  to crack down on graffiti vandals as well as defining the timelines within which property owners have to clean up the graffiti.  The proposed rule changes say that the city can do the clean-up after 24 hours and bill the property owner.  Fines also will balloon: a thousand dollars for the first tagging.  Two thousand dollars for each subsequent violation.

Autopsy results in the Eric Koula murder case are being heard by the jury today.

Information about the deaths of Dennis and Merna Koula could suggest how the shootings took place. Forensic pathologist Lindsay Thomas took part in the autopsies of the Koulas. She believes that Dennis Koula was shot from a distance...contrary to the defense theory that the shots were from handguns at close range.

 

Prosecutors think Eric Koula may have used a rifle from his parents' house to commit the murders. Thomas supports the police conclusion that the shootings occurred late on the afternoon of May 21st, 2010...three days before Eric said he found the bodies.

Need A Job.......Look Technical

Written by

Employers in Wisconsin have had trouble for several years filling skilled positions that include steam-fitters, brick-layers and tool-and-die-makers. Danny Bee with Western Technical College says, yes, they offer those programs.

He also says welders and electricians are also in high demand. A Manpower survey showed that engineers are the second toughest jobs to fill, followed by information technology workers, sales representatives, and accounting staffers.
