Didn't take long for La Crosse police to solve a broken window mystery downtown. Last week, police posted a video from a phone on the department's facebook page of a drunken guy walking away from where he punched out a big window in the Doerflinger building. On Saturday, the building's owner called cops to let them know that Ryan Lucchesi called him to offer to pay for the window and clean-up. Later, Lucchesi told cops he was out celebrating his 21st birthday and simply made a mistake.
In the end, all of those union endorsments might not do Kathleen Falk any good. The former Dane County executive proudly touts endorsements from basically all of the unions in her run for governor in the Wisconsin recall election. La Crosse county democratic party chair Vicki Burke says those early endorsements often simply amount to recommendations to union members and maybe shouldn't be taken as seriously as Falk sees them
Falk collected early endorsements from unions as soon as she entered the race for governor with promises to restore collective bargaining to public unions. That was months before Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett entered the race.
We don't know yet whether two women on the Wisconsin Supreme Court would recuse themselves from a possible disciplinary hearing against fellow justice David Prosser.
The two that Prosser doesn't want hearing the case are Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, and the justice Prosser is accused of trying to choke, Ann Walsh Bradley. Both women spoke in La Crosse last week, but did not declare whether they would stay out of a hearing in the Prosser case. Abrahamson admits it's a "troublesome" situation.
The Wisconsin Judicial Commission says Prosser violated three ethical rules, but a group of appeals court judges is deciding now whether to send the matter to the Supreme Court.

A very interesting spectator showed up at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway this morning....though racing does not start for 2 more weeks. A black bear was spotted roaming the grandstands inside the track, according to track Marketing Director, Dave Noelke. The 100 pound or so bear, was trapped by the hospitality area after a while, and track officials opened a gate to let it back into the wild. The DNR was called, but the bear was long gone by the time they showed up. They, along with a wildlife biologist, were tracking the bear around 12:40pm today, near Elm Street and West Ave. The West Salem High School was placed on lock down for the time being.

2 checkout aisles at the WalMart on Mormon Coulee Road no longer offer candy and gum.....instead you'll see fruit, granola snacks and chalk and bubbles. Why?

They say they're not taking away options, simply encouraging the healthier ones. It's all a part of a Community Putting Prevention to Work Grant.
