Tough decisions, maybe for city leaders in La Crosse.  The city wants to develop the  former industrial Mobil Oil site.  But many also want to tackle struggling neighborhood values.   And maybe can't afford to do both at the same time, says housing expert at the UW Extension office, Karl Green

 

 

The city's been working on acquiring and cleaning up the 65 acre site on the Black River for years.  So far, there's no solid plan on what to turn it into.

La Crosse Council Will Vote on New Garbage Regulations

Written by

The overriding idea behind new regulations on garbage pick-up in La Crosse is to make things look nicer.  To that end, the rules would restrict how long garbage cans could be put out.  Can't leave them on the curb for a couple days.  Can't sit them on the edge of the alley.  With some exceptions, says city public works director Dale Hexom. 

 

 

La Crosse city council votes on the new garbage rules this week.

Man Kicks Cop After Bar Beat Down

Written by
Still some questions about how a guy was treated after a ruckus in a downtown La Crosse bar last week.   Police say 26 year-old Peter Spencer got a little out of control in the bar, was doing roundhouse kicks on the dance floor, rushed the DJ, and finally was corralled by bouncers.  A witness said those bouncers appeared to go way over the top in subduing Spencer.  But Spencer didn't make it easy for himself, either, especially after he kicked an officer on the way to a squad car, leading to a much more serious charge than the one he was facing for the bar scuffle.  Spencer was booked into jail after getting released from the hospital this week-end.

Police figure they've got a pretty good lead on a home break-in this week-end in La Crosse.  Cops say someone climbed through a window at a house next to Weigent Park on the near southside sometime over the week-end.  They do have some footprints in the snow under the window.  They've swabbed a bit for DNA inside.  But, probably more compelling is a wallet they found under the window with a driver's license inside.  They've listed the owner of the wallet as the most likely suspect for the break-in.

A woman in La Crosse had to go to the hospital for bite wounds this week-end.  Apparently a victim of a very jealous Melanie Fife.  They say the 44 year-old Fife drunkenly confronted the bite victim at Fife's boyfriend's place.  The two women fought.  Fife broke a window, pulled the other woman's arm through the window and bit it.   Fife herself suffered cuts from the broken glass.  They say she blew a .17 when they brought her to jail.

Man Sleeping at Wheel Drunk Collects Fourth OWI

Written by
Among the many drunk driving arrests in La Crosse this week-end, there was the one guy who picked up his fourth OWI.  Cops found Andrew Reget passed out in his car on the northside at about three in the morning.  The car was running, turn signal on, headlights on high beam.  The 35 year-old from Onalaska told cops he was just taking a nap on the way to his friend's house.  Blew a .184 on the breathalyzer.  Got to P on the alphabet test before he stopped and told the officer he just wasn't very good at English.

Walker Working With D.A.

Written by

(AP) Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he voluntarily agreed to the Milwaukee County district attorney's request to meet with him about a secret investigation that so far has led to charges against five of Walker's former close aides and associates. Walker made brief comments Monday after a public appearance in Waukesha. They were among his first following an announcement Friday that he would meet with District Attorney John Chisholm. Walker said the meeting date is up to the district attorney to announce. The investigation has created a potential vulnerability for Walker, who faces a potential recall. Walker says his lawyers are examining thousands of emails his campaign has turned over to the DA. He said he hired the lawyers because it would take him too much time to do that work.

Viking Stadium Movement

Written by

(AP) Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and labor groups say they have agreements with the Vikings that they hope will increase city support for a new stadium on the current Metrodome site. The agreements call for union labor to be used on any stadium, with unions committing to no work stoppages. The Vikings separately have signed a letter of intent to OK unionized concession workers at the new stadium. Still under discussion is a workforce agreement that would set goals for hiring women and minority workers and subcontractors. The agreement would also aim to hire Minneapolis residents from zip codes with high rates of poverty.

President Coming To Cheese State

Written by

(AP) President Barack Obama plans to make a stop in the Milwaukee area next week, marking the first time he's come to Wisconsin in 13 months and his eighth visit since taking office. A White House official confirmed Monday that Obama was planning on making the trip to give remarks on Feb. 15, but no other details were released.

 

 

Obama was last in Wisconsin on Jan. 26, 2011, when he came to Manitowoc the day after his State of the Union address. Just over two weeks later, Gov. Scott Walker unveiled his collective bargaining plan that set off massive protests and led to the ongoing effort to recall him from office. Walker's spokesman did not know if the governor planned on greeting Obama on this trip like he did last time.
