01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

The original physical education building at U-W-L will be shut down for a while, because of a weekend fire.

On Saturday night, flames broke out in the basement of Wittich Hall, directly north of Main Hall. Nobody was hurt, and the cause of the fire isn't known yet.  The Wittich fire happened less than two blocks from the football stadium, where thousands of people were gathered Saturday night for the Freedom Fest concert. Hetzel says the festival did not interfere with fire department activity.

A friend of Eric Koula's says he believes investigators wanted him to change his story...

That's what Mike Genz said when questioned in court today at Koula's murder trial in La Crosse. Genz is a defense witness who has said that he and Eric were doing tile work at a house in La Crosse on the afternoon that Eric's parents were killed in Barre Mills. Genz frequently said that the two of them left the house at 5:30 p-m, which would conflict with the police theory that Eric killed his mother 11 minutes later at a house that was eight miles away. Genz said today that they could have left sometime between 5 and 5:30. Genz says Eric was not behaving unusually either that afternoon, or two days later when they spent time together on a boathouse.

Kwik Trip Deal Approved by Council

Written by
Kwik Trip has its deal.  The La Crosse city council has agreed to a development arrangement with Kwik Trip that will lead to a big expansion in the industrial park.  Part of the agreement will return hundreds of thousands of dollars in property tax dollars to Kwik Trip based on the value of the property it creates.  The company will also rent some land from the city and then buy it when some contamination gets cleaned up.  The company is also in line to get a million dollars in job credits from the state for the hundred jobs it plans to create.
