Public works director talks ongoing projects in La Crosse
The city of La Crosse and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation haven't exactly seen eye to eye lately. In fact, the dispute over the best design for the renovation of...
It seemed like almost every comment from the public in La Crosse about moving an interstate exit was a bad comment. Enough to push exit 3 alternative plans right to the brink of the trash can. A city council committee has recommended against approving funding for a study that would have to come before exit 3 construction plans could be put into place. City council president Audrey Kader says she can understand why so many have been opposed to the plans
Rerouting highways 35 and 53 under the plan would displace dozens of homes and businesses.
Twenty-eight years ago Friday, a woman's mutilated body was dumped along a highway in Vernon County...
Since then, nobody has been arrested for the woman's murder...mainly because police still can't figure out who the victim was. On this anniversary, state and local law enforcers are highlighting the Jane Doe case again. Vernon County Sheriff John Spears hopes to get information about the woman out to as many people as possible, through the news media and the internet, because it could, in his words, 'make a light go off.'
None of the potential clues to Jane Doe's identity has ever panned out. Her hands had been cut off, and even numbers printed inside the woman's dentures did not lead to an I-D.

The goal for Arthur Kohl-Riggs: Alter the course of politics in Wisconsin. The 23 year-old former UW La Crosse student will appear on the recall election primary ballot next week as a Republican candidate for governor. Meaning, if he gets enough votes, governor Walker doesn't make it through to the general election. Kohl-Riggs has been making campaign appearances, raising money, and touting himself as better republican than governor Walker, in the tradition of Wisconsin's Fightin' Bob La Follette. Kohl-Riggs will talk about his campaign after 4 today on WIZM's La Crosse talk PM with Mitch Reynolds.

(AP) Minnesota legislators have no floor sessions scheduled Wednesday, leaving the field clear for high-level talks between Gov. Mark Dayton and leaders on the key issues standing in the way of a session finish. The GOP-controlled House approved a tax bill Tuesday that would give property tax relief to businesses. It's one of their top priorities, but Dayton's opposed to the bill because it would tap budget reserves to pay for the relief. Meanwhile, the struggle over a Vikings stadium plan took a detour when Republican leaders came forward Tuesday with a stadium plan that would drop the roof and fund it with general-fund dollars instead of expanded gambling. Dayton, the Vikings and other supporters of the main bill say it's a non-starter.
