A dispute over who shot Sara Hougom...

Two men arrested this month for the March murder of Hougom appeared together in La Crosse County court today. One suspect, Kong Vue, told police that he shot the young woman in her apartment...but the other, Pao Vue, reportedly told people in the county jail that he was the shooter. A judge heard testimony today from La Crosse police, and from a man recently released from jail. That man, Lucas Brickl, says Pao Vue would watch TV stories in jail about Hougom's death and claim that he shot or killed her. The two defendants will be back in court on May 21st to enter 'not guilty' pleas.

District Sees More Say Goodbye

Written by

Last year, the La Crosse School District saw 83 employees either retire or resign. So far this year...that number is at 63....with 32 added to that list Monday night. With impending budget cuts and possible layoffs coming, we asked District Human Resources Director, Steve Salerno, if these positions will be filled.

Salerno says he just came back from a recruitment fair in Madison and the line of applicants at their table was longer then any other school there. How many total positions that will be filled.....unknown at this time.

Mitchell Will Face Kleefisch

Written by

(AP) Madison firefighter Mahlon Mitchell has defeated two opponents to win the Democratic primary for Wisconsin lieutenant governor. With the win Tuesday, the leader of the statewide firefighters' union will now challenge Republican incumbent Rebecca Kleefisch next month. According to unofficial results, Mitchell defeated Milwaukee private detective Ira Robins and fake Democrat Isaac Weix. Kleefisch didn't have a primary opponent. The lieutenant governor's job carries no official duties. However, the lieutenant governor would take over if the governor dies, leaves office early or is incapacitated. Kleefisch and Republican Gov. Scott Walker are facing recall elections sparked by Walker's law that eliminated collective-bargaining rights for most public employees. The general election will be June 5.
