They're not proposing a ban just yet, but staffers with the Food and Drug Administration are saying that adding menthol to cigarettes could make smoking more dangerous than with regular cigarettes.

La Crosse County health educator Paula Silha wants the addition of menthol to be studied in all tobacco products...especially ones aimed at young people.

 

Silha tells us that menthol products offer an easy way for teens to pick up the tobacco habit. The FDA says menthol can make smoking more pleasant, and harder to quit.

Guilty on two counts...but 'not guilty' on a third.

William Petty of La Crosse has been convicted of accidentally shooting and injuring another man in the back of the neck. He's also guilty of possessing a firearm as a convicted felon...but a jury acquitted him on the charge of intimidating a witness. Petty was handling a gun inside a La Crosse apartment last March when the gun went off. A bullet went through the back of Michael Jameson's neck. Petty will be sentenced on September 20th.

The state crime lab found a handprint from Jeff Lepsch at the scene of a double murder in La Crosse.

A fingerprint expert from the lab, Karley Hujet, testifies at Lepsch's murder trial that one print from Lepsch has been found on a glass display case from May's Photo in La Crosse.  Lepsch is accused of killing Paul and A.J. Petras at the photo store last fall, but he claims he never went to that shop. Earlier testimony today from another crime lab expert said no DNA from Lepsch could be found at the murder scene.

La Crosse Man To Prison For Crash

Written by

A La Crosse man has been sentenced to five years in prison for driving while impaired and causing a crash that killed his 22-year-old girlfriend.

Tyler Deal was sentenced in Marathon County Thursday after the victim's friends and family offered tearful testimony. The 22-year-old Deal lost control of his car and crashed into a utility pole in the town of Spencer in February 2012. Paige Delo, the mother of two young girls, died at the scene. Prosecutors say Deal was under the influence of alcohol and marijuana at the time of the crash.

Delo's father, Scott Delo, told the judge Deal's decision to driving while intoxicated caused unbearable pain for both families affected by the crash.

Deal will also serve nine years of extended supervision.

Protesters Back Again

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Scores of protesters have returned to the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda a day after police launched another crackdown on them.

Protesters have been meeting in the rotunda during the noon hour nearly every day for the last two years to sing anti-Republican songs. On Wednesday police launched a crackdown on them, arresting nearly two dozen of them for not having a permit to gather in the building. The move enraged the group, who feel they're exercising their free speech rights. On Thursday dozens more protesters showed up in the rotunda than Wednesday, many carrying cameras.

Police issued 26 citations for not having a permit, one citation for disorderly conduct, one citation for disorderly conduct/resisting arrest and one for resisting arrest.
