Get Him Back On The Train

Written by

 

La Crosse was not the scheduled destination for this rail rider...

Julian Rowland of Missouri was taken off the Empire Builder at the La Crosse depot this weekend after getting into a fight with a conductor when he couldn't pay for food in the dining car. Rowland also kicked a La Crosse city cop when he resisted arrest.

 

Judge Ramona Gonzalez told Rowland in court on Monday that they would try to get him on a train to Chicago, so he could use a return ticket to his hometown. The D-A's office proposed a deal for Rowland to plead to resisting arrest, so he could be sent on his way.  A charge of disorderly conduct would be dropped, as part of the deal.

Virtually no snow on La Crosse streets this winter; alternate side parking tickets still increased.  Police say they wrote a little over 18 thousand alternate side tickets from November through the end of March.   The tickets go to cars that are parked on the wrong side of the street after one in the morning.  The tickets are ten dollars, more for repeat offenders.  The total is up about one percent from last year, though we're told police began to decrease enforcement of the city's alternate side parking rules at the middle of March when it became clear that we'd seen the last of the city's snowfalls for the year.

Sometimes You Just Want to Stay on the Train

Written by
The thing about riding on the train is that it's not your train.  So when you make problems, like an Amtrak rider did on the way through La Crosse this week-end, you can get kicked off.  Which is exactly what happened to 20 year-old Julian Rowland, hailing from Columbia, Missouri.  Couldn't pay for food that he got in the dining car and got physical with the conductor.  So the conductor called cops when the train stopped in La Crosse to give Rowland the boot.   But Rowland didn't want to go.  So it became a wrestling match in the train car with Rowland giving one officer a couple of good kicks in the leg while he was getting cuffed.  Which is going to make it that much harder to get to where Rowland was going when he got on the train in the first place.

Jail Revolving Door Takes Another Spin

Written by

Right back to jail for a guy in La Crosse after a tussle with his girlfriend this week-end.  Cops say 25 year-old Timothy Thurston isn't supposed to have contact with his girlfriend, but he got out of the pokey and went right to her northside place on Saturday.  Apparently everything was going fine and then they started to fight.   And then he started to beat her.  And strangle her.  Took awhile for the girlfriend to call the cops because Thurston broke her phone.  Cops say he was passed out in the bedroom when they got there.   He's still in jail today.

Tomorrow, La Crosse voters could change their form of government through a referendum at the polls.   A ballot measure asks whether La Crosse should add a city administrator and take away some responsibilities from the mayor.   Not all responsibilities, says Glen Jenkins from the group, Administrator, Yes

 

 

But there's still plenty to not like about the idea says councilman Jim Bloedorn who opposes the idea

 

 

If approved, the change would take effect next year.

Onalaska Mayor Vote Tomorrow

Written by

Onalaska picking a mayor tomorrow at the polls.   Joe Chilsen and Samantha Carter facing off in that race.   We asked the candidates about their views on a number of issues facing the city of Onalaska.   Both have an understanding of crime issues in the city.  Chilsen's been on the city's police and fire commission for more than a decade.  He's fine with safety in Onalaska

 

 

Samantha Carter works with Justice Sanctions in La Crosse county.  She's a little more worried about the spread of drugs and crime that's infecting La Crosse and wants to establish more Neighborhood Watch groups

 

 

Chilsen or Carter replaces one-term mayor Mike Giese.

Prisoner 24601 Comes To Zip Code 54601

Written by

The La Crosse Community Theatre has a very big show to put on its new downtown stage a year from now...the musical 'Les Miserables.'

LCT executive director David Kilpatrick says his staffers tried getting the rights to 'Les Miz' a year ago by contacting the original British producer, and were turned down. But the company that handles the American rights to the play called the community theatre just last week, to offer the show to La Crosse.

 

'Les Miz' is scheduled to be the third play performed by LCT in the new building now being constructed on the riverfront. 'Macbeth' will be the opening show early next year.
