At least partial credit for running down a repeat drunk driver this week-end goes to Brutus, the police dog. Early Sunday morning, a La Crosse cop chased a car from downtown to Isle La Plume. Then, the cop chased the driver out onto the ice at the Municipal Boat Harbor but gave up when the ice started cracking. Enter Brutus. The K-9 cop sniffed out the guy hiding under a tarp on a boat. Cops collared 26 year-old Craig Karrigan for his fifth OWI. They added a concealed weapons charge after getting a folding knife off of him.
ON THE FIRST DAY BACK FROM SPRING BREAK, MANY STUDENTS AT U-W-LA CROSSE COULD ATTEND A 'GRIEF SUPPORT GATHERING' MONDAY AFTERNOON.
THAT EVENT, SCHEDULED FOR 4:30 AT CARTWRIGHT CENTER, WAS PROMPTED BY THE DEATH A WEEK AGO OF STUDENT JULIA SUMNICHT. THE JUNIOR FROM THE GREEN BAY AREA DID NOT WAKE UP LAST MONDAY, WHILE SPENDING SPRING BREAK IN FLORIDA. AUTOPSY RESULTS MAY NOT BE COMPLETE FOR A FEW WEEKS.
FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, A SPECIAL COMMITTEE AT LA CROSSE CITY HALL WILL BE BUSY ASKING PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY TO COMPLETE THEIR U-S CENSUS FORMS.
WHY DOES LA CROSSE NEED A COMMITTEE TO PROMOTE THE CENSUS? TIM ACKLIN OF THE CITY PLANNING DEPARTMENT SAYS THE CENSUS BUREAU WANTS COMMUNITIES TO HIGHLIGHT THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING AN ACCURATE POPULATION COUNT.
ALTHOUGH THE LOCAL CENSUS COMMITTEE COULD REMAIN ACTIVE FOR ABOUT TWO YEARS, ACKLIN THINKS MOST OF ITS WORK WILL BE DONE BY THE END OF MAY.
The tax deadline is coming up on April 15th. If you haven't filed you might want to get some online help says Kerri Resch with the IRS. She suggests going to irs.gov and checking out a number of free programs available to everyone. Last year in Wisconsin 3 out of every 4 tax forms were filed electronically. You get your return quicker this way and it saves the IRS $2.50 for every form that comes in by computer.
