A domestic dispute, a restraining order, and a standoff apparently all led to a shooting in Jackson County last night...

Twenty-five-year-old Robert Schafer of Taylor is being treated at Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse, after reportedly being shot once at the home of a woman he knows. The woman has a restraining order against Schafer. The shooter, identifed as Jarrod Thompson of Ettrick, says he warned Schafer that he had a gun, but Schafer kept approaching him. Schafer drove away from the house, and was later given a ride to a hospital. No charges have resulted yet from the shooting.

St Junious Gets 5 Years In Bar Stabbing

Written by

Five years in prison is the sentence given to a La Crosse man convicted of a stabbing last year at John's Bar.

 

Anquin St. Junious says he takes responsibilty for stabbing and wounding a bartender at John's, apparently by accident, during a fight with another man.  St. Junious admits to a drinking problem, and has made a plan for improving himself once he's out of prison.  Judge Dale Pasell rejected a proposed two-year prison term, saying the victim could have died, and that St. Junious poses a danger to the public.

Learn To Drive The Big Plows In MN DOT Simulator

Written by

Remember your first driving test on the highway? It may have been nerve-wracking.

Now imagine the kind of testing snowplow drivers are required to do. Fortunately, their testing may be safer than what your average driver goes through. The Minnesota DOT takes a video simulator around the state to help plow drivers practice for winter. That simulator will be brought to Rushford next week. MN-DOT spokeswoman Kristine Hernandez says the simulators save money on fuel and equipment, and gives drivers an idea of how to handle snow, wind, and emergencies on the road.
