The famous 'Miranda warning' given during an arrest requires police to tell suspects that they have the right to get an attorney before questioning.

 

That right to a lawyer could have an effect on the reckless homicide case of Cain Moss in La Crosse County. Moss is one of two people accused of giving a fatal dose of drugs to a local man last summer. The other suspect, Christina Lorenz, has pled guilty and will be sentenced in July. Moss's attorney wants some of her client's statements to police to be suppressed during trial, because there wasn't a lawyer present. And those statements could include information on where police could find the hidden body of victim Anthony DuCharme. No trial date has been set for Moss. A judge could rule on the admission of those statements within a few weeks.

Downtown Mainstreet Veto Overriden

Written by
As expected, La Crosse mayor Matt Harter's latest veto didn't last.  The city council has voted to override a veto from the mayor that he made last month to withhold allocated funding for Downtown Mainstreet Incorporated.  Harter said he vetoed the six thousand dollars in funding from the downtown business development organization out of the conviction that private entities should not receive public dollars in order to operate.

Tom Barrett's people call it a 'political stunt'...

 

They're responding to a letter from Republican leaders, calling on Barrett to reveal his own economic plan for Wisconsin before the recall election against Governor Walker in June. Assemblyman Robin Vos claims he's only heard one specific idea so far from Barrett, to increase wind energy.  Vos says the media should demand answers from Barrett, so the Milwaukee mayor doesn't campaign on 'lies' and accusations against Walker.

Kind Upset At PSC Ruling

Written by

Following the decision made by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission today to move forward with plans on the CapX2020 high voltage transmission line, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind expressed his disappointment in the process and is encouraging people who may potentially be impacted by Badger Coulee line to make their voices heard.

In a statement, Kind says for years now, he has heard concerns from land owners regarding the proposed lines and he's concerned too. Kind says the process has been confusing and the decision making secretive and he's disappointed in the way this decision was made.

Kind is encouraging people who are concerned to make their voices heard by contacting both the Public Service Commission and the American Transmission Company, who is behind the power line plan that would go from la Crosse to Madison, and by participating in upcoming public forums on the topic.

PSC Approves Portion Of CAPX 2020 Project

Written by
One ruling is in for the CAPX 2020 project. The three commissioners of the public service commission this morning decided the 345 thousand volt project is needed to meet local demand in the La Crosse area as well as to provide regional benefits including the abiity to transfer more electricity on the bulk power system. The big question was where should the lines go. Chairman, Phil Montgomery.



The commission selected a path for the line from Alma to Galesville, but amended the route slightly in the area of the community of Holmen to reduce the number of properties that would have to be crossed. The project is expected to cost at least $202.7 million, though the final cost will be updated after the utilities take into account the route modifications chosen by the commission.
