Who won the sausage race? The motorcycle. Just ask a banged up Kevin Carboni. The La Crosse man was dressed in a Klement's sausage costume yesterday in Milwaukee to help promote the Milwaukee Brewer's opening day. He was part of a costumed relay team running from the Klements factory to Miller Park. As he ran, Carboni was run over by his police motorcycle escort. He is ok, and was able to finish his leg of the race, but he suffered some minor injuries.
THEY FOUND A CAR IN THE WATER, BUT NOBODY WAS INSIDE...
LA CROSSE FIREMEN AND THE DIVE AND RESCUE TEAM WERE CALLED OUT TO PETTIBONE PARK MONDAY NIGHT, AFTER A TEENAGER NOTICED HEADLIGHTS ON UNDERWATER IN THE LAGOON. THE EMERGENCY CALL WAS MADE AROUND 8:30 P-M, AND IT TOOK CREWS ABOUT 45 MINUTES TO GET THE CAR OUT OF THE WATER. ONE DOOR WAS OPEN. SEARCHERS DECIDED NOT TO KEEP LOOKING FOR ANYONE IN THE WATER, AT LEAST UNTIL DAYLIGHT.
Those random traffic stops can sure turn into something for La Crosse cops. Police say they pulled over a big SUV late last week after an officer ran the plates on the car just to see what might pop up. They pulled Eugene Shields over and made a pretty good hit. They say the 29 year-old was carrying some morphine tabs, some crack cocaine and some marijuana, along with 13 hundred dollars in cash. All of it, cops say, peg Shields as a dealer. He's been charged accordingly.
Stealing is bad. Stealing food from the hungry. Now that's really bad. The WAFER food pantry in La Crosse is out roughly five hundred pounds of frozen food that was supposed to donated to the hungry in the area. Five hundred pounds of meats and pizza, fish and shrimp are gone from a freezer at WAFER. They think it might have been an inside job.
The LaCrosse area finally saw some rain over the past few days. But, not enough to lift any of the burn bans in place throughout the county. Dry and windy conditions have left most of the county at risk for fires to spring up. Last week local firefighters were busy fighting a number of brush fires.
