Mutual aid agreement to benefit all of La Crosse County

03 September 2015

Good things can happen when people, and communities, work together. That's why there is much excitement about a new mutual aid agreement being developed among fire departments in La Crosse...

Adrian Wydeven can remember when there were only a few wolves wandering around in Wisconsin.  A few dozen at the most.  The most recent count, says the DNR biologist, is a far cry from that; nearly nine hundred wolves.  Or somewhere around that

 

 

Wydeven believes a hunt this fall could get the state closer to the goal of 350 wolves this fall.

Todd Faircloth, the winner of the Bassmasters Elite Tourny held in La Crosse this weekend, will take his $100 thousand winning check to Green bay with him. An area that some are not familiar with. One that has been there before, Kevin Van Damm, the best angler ever to hit the waters, says he WAS excited about the event.....before the state got involved.

Van Damm says they would love to come back to the La Crosse again....as for other parts of Wisconsin...that may not happen. Van Damm finished 13th in the Elite tourny....1 spot shy of making the top 12 and fishing one more day.

Jasper, Texas Angler Claims Top Prize

Written by

Jasper, Texas is pretty proud of their very own Todd Faircloth today. As he ventures to the Bassmasters Elite Tourny in Green Bay this week...he takes with him a $100 thousand paycheck. That, after winning the Elite Tourny in La Crosse held over the weekend. Fairlcoth said that he, in no way, thought he would win after a rough day Sunday.

And he did just that. A three and a half pounder with 15 minutes to go in the tourny. He topped Cliff Pace by over a pound.

Three weeks of testimony have ended...and the Eric Koula murder trial could reach its finish sometime on Monday.

Jurors will get the case after closing arguments in La Crosse County Court. Eric consistently denies killing his parents for money, but he has admitted to lying about a forged check and a threatening note.  Eric claims he was shopping for an anniversary present for his wife at the hour that police believe the murders occurred in Barre Mills. The defense suggests that professional killers must have shot Eric's parents, because very little physical evidence was left behind at the crime scene.

A first-time murderer does not necessarily make mistakes that would give him away...

That's what a government agent has testified, as the last witness at the Eric Koula murder trial in La Crosse.

 

FBI agent Robert Morton was called this morning to comment on crimes committed by first-timers, compared to experienced criminals. Morton says some murderers have learned techniques through TV shows, calling it the 'C-S-I effect.'  Eric Koula's defense team argues that professional criminals may have killed Eric's parents, because so little incriminating evidence was left at the scene.

Override of Mayor's Veto

Written by

It took just a couple of days for the La Crosse city council to override the latest veto from Mayor Matt Harter.  Harter had Tuesday vetoed a development deal between the city and Kwik Trip, citing concerns about the city using public money to help specific businesses succeed.  The city council voted Thursday to override that veto by a vote of 13-2.  Jim Bloedorn and Doug Farmer were the only council members who voted to sustain the veto.
