There could be more problems with a Mississippi River bridge south of La Crosse...

The Highway 18 bridge between Prairie du Chien and Marquette, Iowa was closed for about three hours on Sunday afternoon, after somebody claimed to have seen something fall off the bridge. A bridge inspector with the Wisconsin DOT says a long piece of concrete apparently fell into the river. During the closing, traffic had to be diverted either north to Lansing or south to Dubuque. The bridge is almost 40 years old. It had to be closed for several months in 1981, when structural weaknesses were found.

We now know the name of the man arrested in La Crosse yesterday, during an FBI raid.

Fifty-year-old Walter Blackman, also known as 'Gangster,' of Gary, Indiana was picked up Thursday morning at a house on Verchota Street. A statement by the FBI identifies Blackman as one of 18 persons associated with the Black Disciples street gang facing federal charges in a drug and weapon investigation. He appeared yesterday before a magistrate judge in Chicago, and is being jailed without bond. Blackman's brother, Ken Blackman, is still at large, but he may not have been in the La Crosse area. One other suspect was arrested in Wisconsin, in the Kenosha area.

Minnesota Hammers Away On Budget

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota state budget officials say state programs stand to lose $90 million a year in federal funds due to across-the-board spending cuts.

State Budget Director Margaret Kelly briefed Minnesota lawmakers Friday on effects of the federal sequestration. She says it's still largely unknown how those spending reductions could play out in the coming weeks and months.

Kelly says some of the $90 million in federal reductions could be offset by specified increases in funding approved by Congress.

Areas where cuts have been noticeable so far include Head Start programs serving infants, toddlers and preschool children from lower-income families. Minnesota's Head Start Association says state programs got notices on March 1 to start making enrollment reductions that are likely to mean hundreds of young children losing services.

Bed Bug Lawsuit

Written by

MOUNT PLEASANT, Iowa (AP) Two people have filed a lawsuit on behalf of more than 50 residents and former residents of a Mount Pleasant apartment complex, saying they've dealt with health-related problems because of a long-running bedbug infestation. The lawsuit filed last month claims the owners of Maple Leaf Apartments failed to eliminate the infestation despite numerous requests from tenants.

The lawsuit says tenants noticed the bed bugs in 2012, and an exterminator's work did not solve the problems.

The newspaper reports representatives of the federally subsidized complex and its management company, National Management Corp., could not be reached for comment.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs are seeking a class-action status for the lawsuit.

Fort McCoy Cancels Open House

Written by

If you planned on attending the The 2013 Fort McCoy Armed Forces Day Open House in May.....forget it. It's been cancelled.

The decision was based on the continuing restrictions placed on community outreach events pursuant to Department of Defense sequestration guidance. Fort McCoy's ability to host the open house event is no longer possible due to the operating limitations currently imposed.

According to Fort McCoy, this was not an outcome that Garrison Commander Colonel Steven Nott favored.
