One reason Wisconsin's prison population has dropped two years in a row, maybe the fact that some would be offenders are being given one more chance to correct themselves before heading to the big house. But does it always work?
Lacrosse County Judge Scott Horne says bootcamps can give structure and discipline.....but a breakdown occurs when the offender is released back into the same enviroment of crime they faced when they went in.
Providing more structure and release provisions, Horne says, are keys to offenders staying out of prisons.
Got a license yet for Max? Might want to get a move on. Wisconsin law requires cats and dogs to get licensed before January 30th. The Coulee Region Humane Society figures that only 18% of cats are licensed in La Crosse county while, they figure, 69% of dogs have their tags. After the 30th, some municipalities offer a grace period to get a pet license but can still fine you for getting it late. Although a license can run you $20, having an unlicensed pet can cost you $250.
A rear-end crash leads to a gas meter break near Nutbush City Limits in Onalaska.
The collision between two vehicles led to the damage to the meter outside DCA Race FAB on Lauderdale Place. That business had to be evacuated. No damage or evacuation at Nutbush across the street.
Yes, it is Martin Luther King Day. No, that's not why the Holmen Franciscan Skemp clinic is closed today. The clinic will be closed the entire day because of what the medical group says is a heating malfunction. Patients who need to be seen today are being asked to travel to the Onalaska walk-in clinic which opens at 5:00 p.m. this afternoon or call the Franciscan Skemp Healthcare clinic in La Crosse.
