Five years ago this month, a gunman tried to rob a bar owner in Bangor, and attempted to shoot the man with a gun that wouldn't fire.
Adam Yeoman eventually pled 'no contest' to attempted murder, but appealed his conviction, claiming certain evidence should not have been used to obtain his plea. A state appeals court upholds the evidence, and the conviction. Yeoman claimed the search of his SUV after a police chase was not proper, and said he hadn't been given his rights when telling officers 'you've got the guy.' Yeoman is 26 now, and has more than 20 years left on his prison sentence.

A Sparta man arrested for a fatal 2009 crash that killed his older brother waived a preliminary hearing in Monroe County this morning. 26 year old Jason Schodeberg is in the Monroe County Jail on a charge of homicide by negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
Schodeberg denied being the driver in the July 26 single vehicle crash that killed his 30 year old brother, Glenn Schodeberg, on Hwy. 33 in Cashton.

DNA results from airbags revealed that Schodeberg was the driver, and a crash reconstruction and witnesses who came forward this year helped corroborate the evidence. A future court dare has not yet been set.

In these days of business consolidations, one company can sometimes make a wide variety of unrelated products.
The same is true with government agencies. In La Crosse County, services for children with physical disabilities and for people with substance abuse problems are provided by a mental health department. Agency head Matt Strittmater says the long-time name of his office...Mental Health Recovery Services...doesn't quite fit any more.
So the M-H-R-S board is doing a study to come up with a more suitable agency name. Strittmater says a decision could be made by the end of March.

The Mayo system has started using Skype computer technology to do long-distance diagnosis of stroke patients in La Crosse. Local Mayo Franciscan neurologist Greg Pupillo says video can give a specialist in Rochester more information to decide whether a patient is having a stroke. The equipment has been available in La Crosse for a month now, but it has not been needed yet to diagnose an actual patient. Most regional Mayo clinics will have the Skype system available by the end of this year.
