Civilian Found Dead At Fort McCoy

Written by

A civilian employee with the Army Reserve 88th Regional Support Command at Fort McCoy was found unresponsive Wednesday afternoon at Equipment Concentration Site-67. Medical officials pronounced 46 year old Kevin Parlow, a Tomah native, and military technician working as a heavy mobile equipment repairer leader, dead at the scene. He was employed as an Army civilian for more than 5 years.

Parlow was reportedly performing maintenance on a military vehicle at the time of the incident. The death is currently under investigation by special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.

The U.S. Army Safety Center is convening an accident investigation board to continue the investigation into the cause of the death.

Budget Talks Heat Up

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Republicans continue to meet behind closed doors to reach deals on the three largest remaining items in the Wisconsin state budget. The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee was scheduled to complete its work on the budget on Tuesday. But three of the biggest items remain unresolved.

Those are public education funding and expansion of the private school voucher program, Medicaid and income taxes. Some details have been made public of deals being discussed among Republicans and Gov. Scott Walker on each of those topics.

But lawmakers are also awaiting more information from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau which could either speed any compromise or derail progress. Talks were expected to be ongoing all day Monday. Democrats also scheduled a Monday news conference to offer their own alternatives.

Minnesota Law Could Be Challenged

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Legislature passed up a chance this session to rework Minnesota's sex offender program, raising the possibility that a federal judge will rule it unconstitutional.

The program is meant to provide treatment, but it has released only one of about 700 people who are being indefinitely detained. The program costs the state $326 a day to hold and treat each offender, triple the average cost of keeping an offender in prison. The U.S. District Court for Minnesota is considering a class-action lawsuit challenging the program's constitutionality.

The court could leave the program as is or order changes, possibly under ongoing court oversight. The state could try to address some of the concerns on its own. Or the plaintiffs could reach a settlement with the state.

Bully Fines

Written by

MONONA, Wis. (AP) Parents of children who bully may be ticketed by police and fined in municipal court under a new local law in Monona.

Police Chief Wally Ostrenga says he expects the ordinance will be used sparingly and only in cases where parents are uncooperative. Ostrenga says sometimes parents don't want to talk to police because they may think their children can do no wrong.

The chief says parents who make a good-faith effort to address their child's behavior would not be ticketed. The first violation of the `parent liability' ordinance carries a $114 fine.

Police Looking For Man Involved In Homicide

Written by

La Crosse Police are asking for you help in finding a man wanted in connection to an early Sunday morning homicide.

 

La Crosse Police were called to the Kwik Trip at 506 Cass St. at 3:21 a.m. They found 24 year old Demario Lee of La Crosse with injuries suffered after an altercation with 25 year old Mirtel Anderson also of La Crosse. Lee was taken to Gundersen Health System and died from the injuries. Police have issued a warrant for First Degree Intentional Homicide for Anderson.

 

La Crosse Police say they have recovered a vehicle used during the commission of this crime and the investigation has lead them to believe the Anderson has fled the area.  The investigation indicated the homicide seems to be an isolated incident. There are no known additional threats at this time and public safety is not in jeopardy.

 

They ask anyone in the community with information that could help the investigation to come forward and contact police. To remain anonymous, contact the La Crosse Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 784-8477.

This might not go down in history as the wettest May in La Crosse...but it will definitely be in the top three.

The city has received 8-and-a-half inches of rain this month...about an inch below the May record set nine years ago. And even though La Crosse had more than an inch of rain on both Wednesday and Thursday, the National Weather Service says it's unlikely to rain enough today to break the monthly record. La Crosse has received measurable rain for 12 days in a row, not counting today, and we have had only seven days this month without any rain at all.
