No Appeal In 1993 Drive-By Shooting

Written by

After almost 20 years in prison, a man convicted of a shooting in La Crosse thought he had found a legal loophole to help him be freed...

Lewis Altman Junior was 23 when he was arrested for firing a gun from one moving car into another on Losey Boulevard. A woman in the other car was wounded in the neck. The shooting happened in 1993...but now, Altman wants to reopen the case by claiming that he did not get to see medical files on how badly the victim was hurt. His argument did not sway Judge Ramona Gonzalez, who said Altman was on a "fishing expedition" with no bait, and no fish at the other end.  Altman has made other attempts to appeal his conviction, because of insufficient evidence or poor legal counsel.

Braun Says I Was Innocent The Whole Time

Written by

Ryan Braun will be in the dugout wearing his traditional Number 8 on Opening Day, after he won his appeal of a positive drug test from last October. Braun spoke about the ordeal at a press conference in the Brewers spring training complex earlier today. He said the Major League Baseball drug testing system is flawed and that led to his name being drug through the mud. Braun told teammates and the media.......I was innocent the whole time.

Braun said all along that his 50 game suspension for a positive drug test would be overturned. He was right. This makes the Brewers outfielder the first Major League Baseball player to successfully challenge a drug related penalty in a grievance.

More Money Going Out The Door

Written by

(AP) A new partnership between the state treasurer's office and the Department of Veterans Affairs is putting unclaimed property in the hands of its rightful owners. That's how the state was able to locate David Coss, a veteran from Wisconsin Rapids. Coss is a thousand dollars richer. And, in a tough economy, Coss says the extra cash is really nice. He and his wife plan to use the money to visit the veterans' memorials in Washington. The state has $411 million in unclaimed property. State treasurer Kurt Schuller says his office has been able to locate about 4,500 veterans in Wisconsin who have unclaimed property.  Some of the claims may be pocket change. But, others are life changing. Schuller says he hand-delivered $750,000 to an elderly couple in Wauwatosa.

Redistricting Goes To Court

Written by

(AP) Lawyers in a federal case over the legality of Wisconsin's election maps have dropped several of their claims, leaving two issues on the table. The trial entered its second and final day Friday in Milwaukee. Democrats and an immigrant-rights group are suing to prevent the state elections board from conducting elections based on the new maps. The plaintiffs dropped several allegations, including a claim that Assembly districts had been drawn inappropriately in predominantly black neighborhoods. A panel of three judges is considering two remaining issues. One is whether the maps deprived Latinos of their constitutional rights, and the other is whether some 300,000 Wisconsin voters were needlessly moved into and out of districts, delaying when they could vote in a Senate election.

School Bullying In Minnesota

Written by

(AP) The superintendent of Minnesota's largest school district is clarifying a statement he made more than a year ago about a string of student suicides and apologizing to those he might have offended. Six students in the Anoka-Hennepin School District committed suicide in less than two years. Family members and gay advocacy groups said some were bullied. In December 2010, Superintendent Dennis Carlson said there was no evidence bullying played a role in any of the deaths. In a new statement on the district's website, Carlson says no one can be sure about events leading up to a suicide, but bullying can be a factor. He also apologized to those who felt his 2010 statement was insensitive. Carlson's new statement did not confirm that bullying contributed to the Anoka suicides.

Garbage Rule Delay Could Last Another Month

Written by

Could be another month before La Crosse's city council votes on new garbage rule proposals.   The council put a vote off on the new garbage regulations for a month earlier a couple weeks ago.  The city's Neighborhood Revitalization Commission was supposed to weigh in on the rules.  And the idea was to get something on the books before college move-out in the spring. And Commission chair, council member Sara Sullivan says she understands the rush

 

 

But Sullivan also thinks she'll need another month to make the best recommendations on the garbage rules that were widely criticized by landlords as being too heavy-handed.
