The deer hunting seasons might still be months away, but the Department of Natural Resources is already gearing up with a series of deer hunter forums this month. Anyone interested in the opportunity to discuss local deer management issues, hunting seasons, and any other deer topic is encouraged to attend.
A local meeting will be held today from 4-8pm for Crawford, La Crosse, Monroe
and Vernon counties at the Bekkum Memorial Library, in Westby.
The deer hunter forums will put the public in direct contact with
the local biologist responsible for managing the local deer herd, and are intended to both share information about deer management and gather information from hunters about deer where they live, hunt or farm.
Today Governor Scott Walker, while in La Crosse, announced a three-year, $4 million pilot program to boost skills training for jobs that are available now.

Police are treating the death of a 35-year-old woman as a homicide.
Chief Ed Kondracki says an autopsy has been performed on the body of Kristen Rodgers, who was found dead in a Caledonia St. parking lot early Tuesday. The cause of her death has not been released, but Kondracki says it was not accidental, and is "possibly drug-related." The chief says the murder is thought to be an isolated incident, not related to other recent drug deaths in the area. Any clues can be called into 784-TIPS
State Represenative, Jill Billings, says she is watching the gubernatorial campaign trail of Kathleen Vinehout and Kathleen Falk real closely. But the one thing that bothers the La Crosse Democrat, is the talk of fake candidates being used in primaries like we saw last year in recall elections.
Billings, during her interview with WIZM News, did not say which candidate she would support...saying she's listening like everyone else is....to the issues each one has.
One democratic candidate for governor is starting to make her statewide rounds on the campaign trail. Senator Kathleen Vinehout made appearances in Winnebago County last weekend. Vienhout talked with WIZM news about her campaign travels so far.
Vinehout will open her campaign office in Madison on March 12th.
A former Baptist church on French Island will be turned into a new library for the Town of Campbell.
Town residents voted 134 to 55 in favor of the purchase on Tuesday night, after a public hearing. The library would be moved out of the town hall to provide more space for emergency services. Some opponents of the plan argued that the town government doesn't need more space if the population has not grown, while others suspected that town officials had a conflict of interest in arranging for the purchase.
Over the last couple weeks the La Crosse Police Department’s Investigative Bureau has executed several search warrants and made multiple, high profile drug arrests. These large cases can overshadow the excellent work being done by the front line officers. The front line uniformed police officers are the “back bone” of our police department. We would like to highlight a recent night of activity from Officer LeQue and his new K-9 partner Ralph. Officer LeQue is assigned to second shift patrol and recently took over the handling of K-9 Ralph from Officer Fitzgerald who was promoted to an Investigator.
On March 2nd the newly formed K-9/Handler relationship took a big step forward with a highly productive night. Officer LeQue deployed K9 Ralph on 4 separate traffic stops resulting in the arrest of 6 people, the recovery of over 36 grams of marijuana, and 3 drug smoking pipes. One of these deployments led to the arrest of a suspect wanted for a heroin related charge; a drug that has repeatedly proven to be dangerous to our community. Assistant Chief Abraham stated: “Our K-9 units have proven to be a tremendous asset to the Department and the community. The message to drug dealers is clear, keep out of La Crosse” The La Crosse Police would like to thank the community for their continued support of men, women and K-9’s that work extremely hard to keep our community safe and drug free.
