It has happened again. Another young college student has been found dead, apparently after a night of excessive drinking. 23 year old Neala Frye was last seen Saturday night at the Spillway Pub in Onalaska. She was supposed to meet up with friends later in the evening, but failed to show up. Friends and family began searching for her when she failed to show up to work at Menards on Sunday morning. Her body was found last night in a ditch near the Black River spillway in Onalaska. Police say foul play is not suspected. Alcohol and the weather are believed to be factors in her death. Frye was a marketing student at UW-La Crosse.

Walker Talks Budget Again

Written by

 

(AP) Republican Gov. Scott Walker says his executive budget will include billions of dollars for transportation infrastructure. The governor's office issued a press release Friday pledging the budget will invest $6.4 billion in transportation, including $824 in new money.

The statement offered no details on how Walker would come up with the money. His spokeswoman said only that he would not raise gas taxes or vehicle registration fees.

A bipartisan task force recommended last month the state should raise gas taxes and impose a new mileage-based registration fees, but Republican leaders rejected both ideas.

A Very Kind Sheen

Written by

(AP) A Florida teenager who plummeted 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride in 2010 is getting some help from actor Charlie Sheen. Teagan Marti suffered brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries when nets and air bags that were supposed to catch riders on the free-fall ride were not raised. She was paralyzed initially but through physical therapy is now able to walk with a walker.

A Marti family friend in Eau Claire asked Sheen for $6,000 to cover therapy dog training, and Sheen wired $10,000 on Thursday.

Sheen said he found it impossible not to help after getting the request and he likes to ``pay it forward.'' The 15-year-old said she didn't really know much about Sheen before but now thinks he's kind and generous.

Powerball Prize Winners In Eau Claire, Sparta

Written by

The Kwik Trip on Highway 27 in Sparta is waiting for a lottery winner to claim a big prize...

Somebody who bought a ticket in Sparta matched five numbers in Powerball last night, to win 10 thousand dollars. An even bigger winner got a Powerball ticket in Eau Claire that will pay two million dollars, but the buyer is still unknown. Last month, a La Crosse Kwik Trip customer claimed a Badger 5 jackpot of more than 270-thousand dollars.

About four times a year, La Crosse County schedules special medication collections, so people can throw out their old medicines safely.

The first collection for 2013 happens this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the hazardous disposal site on Highway 16. Randy Nederlo with La Crosse County says most of the things dropped off during those special collections are typical drugstore products.  But about 10 per cent of them are more hazardous controlled drugs. Collections also are planned for April, August, and maybe November.
