Not a Boom, But Solid Home Sales in Area

Written by

Federal home buyer tax credits certainly have boosted home sales. But the credits are expired and homes are still moving, says State Bank Financial Senior VP in La Crosse, Wayne Oliver. Those sales happening for good reasons, he says. Among them: Value. Oliver says, when comparing quality rental prices to home prices and interest rates, people are making good choices in buying.

La Crosse tracks the rest of midwest in home sales, according to a new report; the region showing better growth in sales for May than the rest of the nation.

Long range planning can sometimes take a long time to get done. Kind of like the planning that the La Crosse school district is tackling regarding the future of its school buildings.  The school board is months into the review of a proposed long range plan.  A complicated process, says school board member Steve Kopp, because some of the key issues facing the district in the long run don't have solutions yet.  While long range plans were back on the school board's agenda this week, the board skipped over the topic to deal with more pressing concerns. Like a whole bunch of teacher assistant layoffs.

La Crosse County is ready to file attempted murder charges against a man who was shot during a standoff in March...

Keith Marchbanks will make a court appearance by phone on Thursday, because he's not able to leave the hospital yet, and has to use a wheelchair.

 

La Crosse County Sheriff Steve Helgeson says Marchbanks could be sent to the jail sometime next month. An Onalaska policeman shot and wounded Marchbanks when he came toward officers with a large knife, outside his wife's house at West Salem.

Is a GED just like a regular high school diploma? A new study suggests not.  The study says a high school equivalency may only be a little better for students than just dropping out.  But La Crosse associate superintendent, Randy Nelson says equivalency is still essential for some students.   Especially those who deal with conflict at home or wind up in jail.   Nelson says, for those, getting a GED or HSED is essential for showing that they have what it takes to be a high school graduate.  Nelson says the district doesn't encourage students to get a GED but can help them in that direction if needed.

KKK T-shirts Catch Eye of ACLU

Written by
A response to controversial t-shirts in a western WIsconsin school district has drawn the attention of civil rights advocates. The Wisconsin ACLU says it will investigate how The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau school district handled the situation at the end of the school year that involved several students wearing KKK t-shirts. Those students will apparently face school discipline and maybe criminal charges for the t-shirts. But the ACLU questions whether the students' civil rights were violated. The group says the students' "expression of their religious or political beliefs is constitutionally protected." The group also says just because the t-shirts were considered offensive that alone would not give the school grounds to punish kids for wearing them.

Former DNR Secretary Doubts Cougar Cover Up Claims

Written by
Until recently, the presence of cougars in Wisconsin hasn't been a big topic of conversation for the state's DNR. But that might soon change. Because the big cats are moving in, says George Meyer, director of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation.  Meyer, who used to be DNR secretary in Wisconsin, says his old agency has been very cautious to confirm reports of cougars in the state, lacking significant physical evidence but he doubts the DNR has tried to cover up the existence of the big cats in Wisconsin.

By this point, parts of the La Crosse school district are a full-on construction zone. Doesn't take long to get that point in the summer, says district buildings and grounds chief, Joe Ledvina.  He says, as soon as kids leave for summer vacation, crews are standing by to start tearing things apart.   The district is still doing work paid for through a referendum from a couple of years ago. This summer, among many other projects, it's heating and air conditioning systems at Summit and Hintgen elementary and tennis courts at Logan high.

Cougar in Juneau Prowls, Consumes

Written by
You better believe they're talking all about the cougar in Wonewoc. The little town in Juneau county is right about where a cougar has mauled its way through a couple horses, two sheep, a cow and several deer so far.  The DNR and US Fish and Wildlife are apparently trying to track the big cat.  There have been no reported attacks on pets or people at this point.

Yes, We've Noticed the New Water Charge, Too

Written by
Taken a good look at your La Crosse water bill recently? The new fire hydrant charge should be on there. For most in La Crosse, it's an additional eight bucks or so on your bill that's new this year. It's to pay for adequate water flow in fire emergencies, says city public works director, Dale Hexom.  The amount of the fire charge is based on the size of water meters. And normally tax exempt properties are not exempt from the new utility charge
