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.

The Eric Koula jury is likely to hear one more day of testimony before getting the case...

Judge Scott Horne announced to jurors yesterday that the defense has just one more witness to call on Friday, and the prosecution will have a few more. Otherwise, Horne expects to have closing arguments on Monday, with deliberations beginning later that day. He had expected testimony to last through next Tuesday. Friday will mark the end of the third week of the Koula trial. The West Salem man is accused of killing his parents two years ago for money, after going broke repeatedly in the stock market.

More doubt this morning in the Eric Koula case, about when Koula's parents were murdered...

The defense presented a neighbor, Jeff Elliott, who believes he saw Dennis and Merna Koula alive in their yard at 8 p-m, about two hours after the time police believe they were shot on a Friday in 2010. D-A Tim Gruenke asked Elliott how sure he was of what night he saw the Koulas in their yard.

 

Elliott says he recognized Dennis by his white hair. Investigators claim Eric Koula shot his parents between 5 and 6 p-m on that Friday, and reported finding them dead the following Monday.

Commission Weighs Fate of Officer

Written by

The discipline case for a La Crosse police officer remains unsettled.  But the city's Police and Fire Commission begins the process of dealing with Corrie Korn today.  Korn and former officer Faling Yang were charged by the feds with illegal hunting while operating their guide service on the Mississippi.  Yang resigned from the force, has been fined five thousand dollars, and has lost his hunting priveleges for two years.  Korn has yet to be sentenced and remains on the force although he is suspended.  An internal police investigation has concluded in the case and the city commission will determine the discipline which could include termination.  The board considers appointing a hearing examiner in the case today.

No Bus For You........Yet

Written by

So now that a 3 county commuter bus project has been put on hold due to a declined bid, what happens now. Peter Fletcher, a transportation planner at the Mississippi River Regional Planning Commission, says there's still hope.

The date was July 2nd to start the $3 a ride bus that included La Crosse, Vernon and Crawford counties. The Wisconsin DOT is paying about 80% of the project......at least for this year.

It probably cost more to fix a fire-damaged dorm at U-W-La Crosse this year than to build the dorm in the first place...

The renovation of Drake Hall is nearly complete, but it won't be open to students again until just before the fall semester. Campus residence life director Nick Nicklaus says the repair bill came close to three million dollars. And the remodeling process was prolonged by the need to replace wiring that was fused together by the January fire.

 

Nobody was hurt in the Drake fire, and the exact cause is still unknown. Meanwhile, the university expects the cleanup of another campus fire last weekend at Wittich Hall to take about a month.

Koula Trial Could Wrap Up By Middle Of Next Week

Written by

Jurors at the Eric Koula murder trial may be seeing light at the end of the tunnel...

Thirteen days into the La Crosse County trial, they've been told that the defense is likely to call its last witness on Thursday. And after the D-A has a second chance at some witnesses, closing arguments could happen early next week.

 

Judge Scott Horne says the jury would be sequestered until it reaches a verdict...and if the discussions last more than one day, the jury could meet until 9 p-m on any given day. Koula is on trial for the shooting deaths of his parents over two years ago. The judge kept his schedule open for the trial through June 29th.
