A Monroe County man has life threatening injuries after a tree fell on him last night. Just before 6:30 last night,  59 year old Gary Everts, of rural Camp Douglas, was cutting down a tree when it fell and twisted. The tree fell in the same direction Everts had run to get away. The tree hit him in the middle of the back and pinned him. Everts was transported to Tomah Memorial hospital and later transferred to Gundersen Lutheran hospital by Med Link Air with life threatening injuries. The accident remains under investigation by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.

Storm Update

Written by
Firefighters responded to a fire in a gymnasium at Siren High School today. All students were safely evacuated with no injuries to students or staff. Students were sent home at noon. Five fire departments responded and the fire remains under investigation.

Meanwhile, clean up continues following heavy rains in northwestern Wisconsin and yesterday's severe storms in southwest and southeast portions of the state. There were no injuries reported as a result of the severe storms and flooding. Repeated rounds of heavy rain in northwestern Wisconsin have caused several rivers and creeks, including the Mississippi River to rise. However, major flooding is not expected.

Columbia County officials report about $12 thousand in damage and debris removal mainly in the Wisconsin Dells area following Monday's severe storms. In Crawford County, lightning damaged the communications tower that impacted the dispatch center for a couple of hours on Saturday.  Wisconsin Emergency Management is engaged with the local officials and will continue to monitor the progress of the recovery efforts.

La Crosse City Hall Employees Suspended

Written by

A couple of high level employees have been placed on administrative leave at La Crosse city hall.  We're told city prosecutor Pete Kisken and Community Development Administrator Lianna Escott have been placed on leave.  We're told both were escorted from La Crosse city hall late last week.  Requests for additional information from the city attorney's office and the human resources office regarding the suspensions have gone unanswered so far.  Mayor Matt Harter and city council president Audrey Kader have also both declined to comment on the apparent discipline.

It wasn't much heroin that La Crosse police found in a van during a traffic stop.  But it was enough to charge a couple guys in the van with dealing.   52 year-old Darnell Hamilton and 46 year-old Dennis Mickelson, both from La Crosse, have been charged with heroin dealing.   Cops say they got suspicious when they pulled the van over and the two guys started getting fidgety.  They say Ralph the drug dog sniffed out the van and hit in several spots.   Lots of hidden compartments in the van, say police.  But they didn't have to look far to find two baggies of heroin and a bag of crack.  Those were just sitting on the floor in the front.
