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.

Somebody poured the wrong kind of thing on a campfire in Houston County over the weekend, and four young people had to be hospitalized with burns as a result.

A four-year-old girl was sent to a St. Paul hospital, while three other young people were taken to La Crosse for treatment. A man also was injured. An adult in a camping group poured an accelerant on the fire, and an 'explosion' followed, according to investigators. It happened late Friday night at the Money Creek Haven campground near Houston.

La Crosse police are investigating three heroin overdoses this week. One of them was fatal.

An unidentified person was found dead on Thursday, and police found evidence that heroin had been used. On Wednesday, a 19-year-old woman was revived after passing out in a room at a hotel near Rose Street. And today, at another north-side hotel, first responders saved the life of a 46-year-old man who also was unconscious, apparently after taking heroin. The police department says an 'extremely potent' supply of heroin may have been brought to the La Crosse area, and it's asking citizens for help in tracking down who's been distributing the drug.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Department has made an arrest in a two year old vehicular homicide case. At the time of the accident, in 2009, it couldn't be determined who the driver of the car was. A combination of DNA evidence, and witnesses in the investigation allowed detectives to make an arrest. Until today. 26 year old Jason Schodeberg was arrested for killing his brother in a car crash in July of '09. He is being held in the Monroe County Jail pending a bond hearing on Monday.

 

The accident occurred in front of a residence on Highway 33 in Cashton. Detectives were able to establish that Schodeberg was the driver of the vehicle that killed his brother, Glenn , who was 30 at the time of the crash. They say alcohol was involved. Schodeberg was arrested with a charge of Homicide by Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle.

The District Attorney's Office will determine actual charges in the matter.

Eric Koula's defense team is preparing to appeal his murder conviction...

The defense attorneys are speaking publicly for the first time since Wednesday's verdict, when a jury found Koula guilty of killing his parents at their Barre Mills home in May of 2010.  Attorney Keith Belzer says the motion to appeal will wait until after the sentencing in August. While the prosecution argued that Koula shot his parents to get money, the defense said Koula loved his mother and father, and was not in financial trouble.  Belzer says Koula is 'devastated' by the verdict, and the attorneys still believe Koula is innocent.

Kind Says Both Sides Need To Work On Health Law

Written by

In what's being called a dramatic victory for President Barack Obama, the Supreme Court upheld the 2010 health care law Thursday, preserving Obama’s landmark legislative achievement. Congressman, Ron Kind, says just because the Supreme Court made a ruling doesn't mean that democrats and republicans can't work together to make the law work.

The decision Thursday virtually guarantees the health care law will remain at the forefront of the 2012 campaign.
