She admits to using dangerous drugs with a friend, who died from an overdose...

Christina Lorenz of La Crosse is pleading guilty, to a reduced charge of being a party to reckless homicide. The D-A's office will recommend a maximum prison term of three years, plus five years on supervision, when Lorenz is sentenced in June. Lorenz used drugs with two other men, including Anthony Du Charme, last August. When Du Charme suddenly died, Lorenz and others reportedly conspired to hide his body on a north La Crosse hillside. The charge of concealing a corpse was dismissed as part of the negotiated plea.

Bring Out Your Drugs!

Written by

It's happening all over America this weekend...

The Drug Enforcement Administration is sponsoring what it calls 'Drug Take-Back Day' on Saturday, when people can throw away prescription drugs that have gone unused, or have expired. More than five thousand drop-off sites have been used during previous collections. In La Crosse County, four sites will be set up for drug disposal. The medications will be collected at Viterbo University, the Onalaska Police Department, the CESA-4 office in West Salem, and at the Household Hazardous Materials site on Highway 16.

La Crosse County HAZMAT Is A Statewide Thing

Written by

The Department of Military Affairs, last week, abandoned a proposal that would have made significant changes to how the state funds and managed Hazardous Materials response teams. In La Crosse County, that news was huge not only locally......but on a statewide basis as well.



Chief Greg Cleveland says the changes would have meant huge funding cuts for teams in La Crosse, Racine and Superior, while forcing those communities to maintain much of the same responsibilities they have now.

Yes, the drinking fountains in La Crosse will soon be running again for the season.

 

No, they won't be running all the time. The city this week will put valves on 45 historical fountains that have traditionally run continuously. That's a bunch of water every year; 4 to 5 million gallons, says

 

 

 

city water utility manager Mark Johnson. Each new fountain valve will cost about 75 dollars. Until now, the city has paid the utility over a hundred dollars a year each to let the fountains run continuously.

No Frac Sand Damage Here

Written by

A frac sand mine in Monroe County has almost eliminated any concerns about trucks carrying away sand and damaging roads. Highway Commissioner Jack Dittmar talks about the site on Highway 21 between Sparta and Tomah.

And that's been a main concern to some counties that have placed moratoriums on the mining. That and effects on land and groundwater and health impacts on nearby residents.

More Vets Going To College In Minnesota

Written by

The numbers of returning veterans going to college in Minnesota under a newly revamped GI bill is growing. Steve Frantz is with the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.

Frantz says although the new GI Bill might not result in the sort of sweeping social change that was ushered in more than half a century ago by the sheer numbers of returning vets, it has the potential to transform lives of young service members and their families.
