Incomplete police chase data raises suspicions

01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

Approval of New City Garbage Rules Likely Delayed

Written by

New regulations on garbage in La Crosse were meant to help pick-up neighborhoods a little.  But opposition by neighborhood groups and landlords have put adoption of those rules apparently on hold.  The city council is poised to delay approval of the new garbage and recycling rules for a month.  A special neighborhood revitalization committee will weigh in on possible changes.  Among the more contentious rules, one that would mandate a dumpster for any rental that had eight or more bedrooms.

Sturgeon Fishermen Warned

Written by

(AP) The state Department of Natural Resources is warning sturgeon hunters they're responsible for their own safety when Wisconsin's annual spearing season begins this weekend on the Lake Winnebago system. Recent warm weather has left ice on the system in poor shape. The DNR says it's dangerously thin in many areas. Forecasts call for lows in the teens for the rest of the week, which could lead to better conditions. DNR officials say the season will go on and it's up to spearers to judge the ice's safety for themselves. They say the ice is never completely safe no matter how thick it is.

Minnesota Caucaus Numbers Low

Written by

(AP) Turnout has generally been low for Minnesota's Republican presidential caucus, and that appears to be no different in the latest straw poll. The GOP says Tuesday's contest drew about 47,800 participants with about 95 percent of precincts reporting. Four years ago turnout was nearly 63,000 after all precincts were counted. Rick Santorum finished comfortably ahead of Ron Paul Tuesday with Mitt Romney a distant third and Newt Gingrich last. Romney, the front-runner for the nomination, won in Minnesota four years ago by casting himself as the conservative alternative to John McCain. It proved to be a winning strategy in a state where party processes are traditionally dominated by deeply conservative activists. The results are a blow for Romney who had the help of former Gov. Tim Pawlenty in Minnesota.

First Lady Visits Iowa

Written by

(AP) Thousands of students, several well-known athletes and a number of politicians are expected to join Michelle Obama for an event in Des Moines that will promote exercise and healthy eating. Besides the first lady, participants at the Thursday event include Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, gymnast Shawn Johnson, figure skater Michelle Kwan and NASCAR champion Carl Edwards.

 

 

About 10,000 children will be bused to the event from 45 schools in the Des Moines area. It will be Obama's first stop on a three-day national tour marking her Let's Move initiative, which promotes physical fitness and healthy eating for children. She's been drawn to Des Moines by Iowa's Healthiest State initiative. That program aims to make Iowa the healthiest state by 2016.

Jackson County Man Missing

Written by

Jackson County authorities are looking for 20 year old Gene Cloud Jr. and are asking for the public's help. He was last seen January 25th when the vehicle he was operating slid in the ditch in Millston Township, Jackson County. Cloud fled from the scene on foot and was chased by law enforcement before getting away. On January 27th, he was reported as a missing person by family members. It is possible that Cloud was picked up by somebody and given a ride, but the family says he should have made contact with someone at this point.

Gene Cloud Jr. is a Native American male, 5’8", approximately 140 pounds, black hair, brown eyes, last seen wearing a black leather jacket, black hooded sweatshirt, jeans and black tennis shoes. Cloud was in possession of a 6 month old male Daschund puppy; brown in color short hair. It is believed that the puppy was wearing a sweater.

Anyone with information regarding Cloud or the missing dog is encouraged to contact the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department or the Ho-Chunk Nation Police Department.

Minnesota District Talks Sexuality

Written by

(AP) The teachers union in Minnesota's largest school district has endorsed a proposed replacement for a policy that requires teachers to stay neutral when issues of sexual orientation come up in class. Local President Julie Blaha says the representative assembly of Anoka-Hennepin Education Minnesota showed overwhelming support for the proposed ``Respectful Learning Environment'' policy in a voice vote Monday. Critics say the district's existing neutrality policy on human sexuality hampers teachers from preventing bullying of students who are gay or perceived as gay, and the district is the target of two lawsuits challenging it. Supporters of the policy include parents who believe homosexual conduct is immoral and don't want teachers telling their children that gay relationships are acceptable. The school board is expected to vote on the proposed policy Feb. 13.

Minnesota Caucuses Tonight

Written by

(AP) Minnesota Republicans are basking in the attention of the political world, with caucuses Tuesday night that matter for a change. The nomination fight is usually wrapped up well before Minnesota gets its turn, or else the state is lumped in with much bigger prizes. This year, all four GOP presidential hopefuls have dropped by in the final week. Mitt Romney is hoping for a repeat of his 2008 victory, but the traditionally small turnout could give an opening to Rick Santorum or Ron Paul. Republican caucus attendees tend toward the conservative, especially those most concerned with social issues. Tea party members could play a role in the outcome. The caucuses start at 8 p.m. EST and nearly complete results are typically known within a few hours.

Written by

(AP) Democrat Kathleen Falk is embarking on a statewide tour to tout her campaign against Republican Gov. Scott Walker. State election officials are still in the process of verifying that at least 540,208 signatures were submitted on petitions seeking Walker's recall from office. Once that is done, an election would be scheduled. Falk is the only announced Democratic candidate. She planned a two-day tour of the state that begins Tuesday in Milwaukee and then continues in Green Bay and Wausau. On Wednesday she plans to be in Eau Claire and La Crosse. A number of other Democrats are considering getting into the race, but none of them have officially declared yet.
