Where Did My Sample Go!

Written by

More drama in the Ryan Braun drug testing case. Dino Laurenzi Jr., the guy who handled MIlwaukee Brewers outfielder, Ryan Braun's questionable urine sample, said Tuesday that at the time of the test, he obtained a signature from the NL MVP, stipulating that the samples were capped and sealed in his presence. Braun explains where it should have gone from there.

Laurenzi Jr. said he did exactly what he was supposed to do. Braun said because of the delay, the testing was fatally flawed. Braun tested positive in October for elevated testosterone, and ESPN revealed the positive test in December. His case marked the first time a baseball player has successfully challenged a drug related penalty in a grievance.

Will 11 X 15 Fly!

Written by

11 thousand Wisconsin prisoners would be released into treatment programs by 2015 if a group of religious leaders has their way. But La Crosse County D.A. Tim Gruenke says most prisoners are behind bars for a reason.

Organizers of the campaign, led by an umbrella organization for faith based coalitions in Wisconsin called WISDOM, haven't suggested legislative or policy changes so far.

Written by

It used to be that heroin was one of the most expensive drugs out there. But check almost any courtroom in the state and you'll find heroin cases on the rise. Sparta Police Chief, Mike Kass, says he is seeing it every day....and not just in his city. So what's being done to crack down on the drug?

Kass says towns and cities are also sharing ways that they are using to crack down on the dealing and usage of the drug. He says it's here to stay.......at least for a while.

Winter Storm Pounds Minnesota Again

Written by

(AP) A powerful late winter storm has closed schools for a second day in Duluth. Superintendent Bill Gronseth says some city roads remain in poor condition due to blizzard-like conditions that socked the area on Leap Day. The storm caused widespread closures on Wednesday. Thousands of customers lost power when high winds snapped power lines. Firefighters were called to West Duluth to help get people out of a stalled elevator because of a power outage. Wind gusts measured up to 65 mph on the Blatnik Bridge in Duluth. A gale warning was posted at Lake Superior where huge waves pummeled the Duluth shoreline.

Pack Stock Sale Over

Written by

(AP) The Green Bay Packers say they sold more than 268,000 shares of stock in their most recent stock offering, raising $67 million dollars to help fund stadium improvements. Green Bay just wrapped up the fifth stock sale in team history. The team said Thursday it added more than 250,000 new shareholders.

About half of the sales were in Wisconsin. Illinois and California tied for second, each accounting for about 8.5 percent of sales. Minnesota and Texas were next with 5 percent each. Each share cost $250, plus handling fees of $25 in the U.S. and $35 in Canada. The shares are essentially worthless, but holders can call themselves team owners and attend the annual stockholder meeting. The offering began Dec. 6. Most of the sales came in the first 48 hours.

City and Soccer Club in Lease Dispute

Written by

A youth soccer club has turned its one dollar a year lease with the city of La Crosse into quite a money maker.   Much of it in violation of their lease, says city park and rec boss, Steve Carlyon.  The group, CRUSA leases 18 fields for its competitive soccer program.  And among other things, says Carlyon, the group's subleasing to the local high school teams

 

 

The two sides are negotiating a new lease right now that would not allow the school sublease arrangement.  The new lease would also force the club to charge more to kids who don't live in La Crosse.

Council Pay Cut Proposal Suffers First Failure

Written by
La Crosse city council members appear to be safe with their two hundred dollar a month stipend. One council committee has rejected without discussion proposals to cut council members' pay and term length. The proposals come from councilman John Satory who has openly expressed frustration over a measure approved earlier this month by the council to cut the next mayor's salary in half if voters approve a city administrator hiring through a spring binding referendum. Satory says his proposal is made out of a sense of fairness but has also acknowledged that he has little expectation of success.
