In a few weeks, you'll get to see more than two-and-a-half million Christmas lights, and dozens of specially decorated holiday trees, in La Crosse's Riverside Park.

Rotary Lights begins its 18th year on November 23rd. Pat Stephens, the president of Rotary Lights, says about 40 performing groups are scheduled to entertain this season inside the heated Ice Castle in the park. Stephens says getting to perform indoors is a big incentive for attracting those groups, because just a handful of groups used to volunteer when they only had the option of performing at the park bandshell on cold nights.  The main goal of Rotary Lights is to collect food for area pantries. Over 225-thousand food items were donated just last year.

'I didn't do it, I swear...'

Larry Schaffer said that in a Sparta courtroom yesterday, just before being given a 20-year prison term for the murders of Kale Kvistad and Connie De George. Schaffer's sister, who had been abused by him, has told police she witnessed the shootings 10 years ago. But district attorney Dan Cary says the woman might not have been a reliable witness during a trial.  At sentencing on Tuesday, Larry Schaffer called his sister a 'sociopath' who falsely accused him of the double murder. Judge David Rice says he accepted the plea agreement, because he was confident that Cary had the evidence to convict Schaffer.

Much anger and many tears in a Sparta courtroom on Tuesday, as a Neillsville man was sentenced for a double murder that occurred 10 years ago.

Judge David Rice ordered Larry Schaffer to serve 20 years for the robbery-related deaths of Kale Kvistad and Connie De George. Several friends and relatives of the victims gave emotional statements to the court.

Although Schaffer agreed to a plea instead of a trial, he still claims police got the wrong man.  Schaffer was found guilty of shooting the couple during a robbery.  They disappeared from their Sparta home on Easter Sunday of 2002.  Their remains were found by hunters two years later, and Schaffer was charged in early 2011 after allegedly bragging about the killings.  One spectator shouted 'Rot in hell' as Schaffer was taken from the courtroom. Schaffer called back 'I will.'

Former La Crosse city council members Tom Sweeney and Lorraine Decker say they have a councilman willing to ask for reconsideration of a plan to do away with the city council committee of the whole meetings and the public hearings that go with those meetings.  Reconsideration vote would come on Thursday.
