A jury is set for a double murder trial in La Crosse...
After the questioning of dozens of candidates, 15 jurors have been chosen for the Eric Koula trial. Opening statements will be made Tuesday morning, after which the jury will be taken to the Barre Mills home where Koula's parents were shot to death two years ago. Koula is suspected of killing his parents for money, but his defense team argues that the shootings appeared to be professionally done.
The Koula trial may become one of the longest murder trials ever in La Crosse County, scheduled to last four weeks. In June of 1994, James Frydenlund was tried for the beating deaths of his estranged wife and her parents. The case lasted nearly three weeks, and ended with Frydenlund being found 'not guilty.'
The challenger in the recall race for governor of Wisconsin has his focus on the Badger State...not on a national stage.
Democrat Tom Barrett tells reporters in La Crosse that he has tried to concentrate on statewide issues in his second run against Scott Walker. The mayor of Milwaukee believes Governor Walker has been too eager to make the recall race a preview of the presidential election.
La Crosse Congressman Ron Kind drove Barrett up to Jules' Coffee House on Pearl Street for a local appearance this morning.
A vote for Tom Barrett would be a vote for more recall elections in Wisconsin.
Governor Scott Walker makes that argument, in a final campaign swing through the La Crosse area before the Tuesday recall. Walker tells reporters at West Salem that Democrats would push for more recall elections if Barrett becomes governor. But if Walker is re-elected, that would be a call to lawmakers to change the recall law.
Although at least one person greeting Walker in West Salem wore a 'Scott Walker for President' shirt, Walker says he's not interested in seeking a higher office...because he expects to keep his current job.
Money and a strong ground efffort...that, plain and simple, will get Governor Scott Walker over the recall hump tomorrow. RNC Chair, Reince Priebus also says, the support is not just within the Wisconsin border.
Priebus said during a news conference Friday, that it takes more then money to win an election, it takes people and that's what will help Walker defeat Tom Barrett tomorrow.
So after the announcment last week that La Crosse Promise Future Centers will open in August in area La Crosse School District schools........the question now is who will staff these centers and the La Crosse Promise.
Jerry Kember, former superintendent of La Crosse Public Schools, has been serving as Interim Director of La Crosse Promise and has been a driving force behind the organization since its inception. In December of last year, after two years of extensive study and discussions with diverse groups throughout the region, La Crosse Promise decided to go forward with plans to open Future Centers this fall if they could raise $250 thousand for each of the next 3 years. And they did.
So what about the senate recall elections tomorrow. They seem to be buried behind the Governor's recall election. UW-L Political Scientist, Joe Heim, says don't expect any democratic shockers to take place as the republicans all seem to be favorored tomorrow.
New polls last week showed Republicans with healthy leads in three of the four state Senate recall fights.
Final touches coming today on the latest version of new garbage regulations for the city of La Crosse. City public works director Dale Hexom says the last bits of work have to do with dealing with scavengers. Especially the ones that go after old TV's. Breaking them. Leaving a mess. Hexom says the new rules will assign responsibility for that mess
The city council has been trying to pass updated garbage rules for months. Landlords have, until now, been able to block a vote on new rules. The city's board of public works votes on the final ordinance today.
The last remaining Logan High School teacher to have taught at both the 'old' Logan and the current building starts her retirement this week...
English teacher Dorina Lukins, a U-W-La Crosse graduate, says she didn't think how long she might be a teacher when she started at Logan in 1978. Lukins was given a serenade by a group of bagpipers during her last full day at the high school on Friday. The bagpipe surprise was arranged by her friend, La Crosse Public Library director Kelly Krieg-Sigman, who had won an auction to have the pipers play for a special occasion.
