Man Faces Charges for Brutality Against Girlfriend

Written by
A La Crosse man faces a list of serious charges after essentially torturing his girlfriend for a couple of hours at her apartment on Thursday.   Police say 39 year-old Lonell Powers spent two hours alternating between beating and strangling his girlfriend.  At one point, she used her pet snake to shield herself, because Powers is apparently scared of it.  At another point, police say the woman escaped to the neighbor's house but Powers dragged her back inside by the hair.  Among the charges Power is facing: strangulation and first degree sexual assault.  Apparently the violence erupted over the woman communicating with other men.

Holmen Clashes With Town Of Ona On Fire Costs

Written by

Not all fire service is created equal...

That's one stumbling block holding up a new agreement on fire protection for Holmen and the towns of Holland and Onalaska. Last week, the Onalaska town board voted to withdraw from the fire district unless Holmen pays more of the cost, since it gets the vast majority of calls. Holmen administrator Scott Heinig says charging by the call is not fair to his community.  Heinig claims if the town of Onalaska withdraws at the end of 2013, as it threatens to do, then Holmen and Holland will continue their partnership.

A very hot summer has gone by in Vernon County, without much movement on a notorious cold case.

Last May, the sheriff's department in Viroqua asked the public to help solve the murder of an unknown woman that occurred in 1984. Sheriff John Spears has been trying to make the media beyond western Wisconsin aware of the killing.  The woman's body had no hands, and she didn't match any missing person description at the time. Investigators believe she was killed outside Vernon County, and the body was brought over county lines.

Riverboat lovers in La Crosse will get their first look this week at the newest paddlewheeler to cruise the upper Mississippi.

The 'Queen of the Mississippi' is on its first trip from St. Louis to St. Paul, and will arrive at La Crosse's Riverside Park early Thursday morning. The 150-passenger boat will be docked in La Crosse for about 10 hours before continuing upriver, and it will make three more visits to La Crosse this fall. Also, the American Queen will return to the city on September 19th, for the first time in four years. The old 'Mississippi Queen' was dismantled last year, and the Delta Queen is permanently docked in Tennessee.

Chancellor, Joe Gow, says both have visited the campus a few times and when a budget was approved a few weeks ago, what they saw in some instances, was included in the budget....primarily on the construction side.
