It's always nice when an area business chips in and helps pay for a study of local roads in the area. Just ask Onalaska City Engineer Jarrod Holter.
The DOT says the city is obligated to modify the traffic lanes on Highway 16 at the South Kinney Coulee Road intersection if and when traffic conditions warrant. Well it is warranted and the study is underway to try and alleviate some of the traffic back up's that have been occuring the past couple of years. Actual construction of turn lane changes is estimated to cost about $115 thousand, which has been included in the city’s 2012 capital improvements budget.
The La Crosse Park and Rec. Department is getting a jump start on the boating season today.

An attempt by the legislature to remove a Wisconsin state supreme court justice has ended. But justice Michael Gableman still could face some punishment for ethical lapses. From the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, Mike McCabe says the judicial commission is considering how Gableman failed to divulge free legal help he got from a law firm but still ruled on cases in which the firm was a part. Probably shouldn't have done that, says McCabe
Gableman got the free legal help to deal with a previous accusation of judicial misconduct.
Who are the police officers in your city? La Crosse will attempt an answer to that. The city police department is starting something new on the department's Facebook page. "Get to Know Your Officers." In an announcement about the new program, the department cites retirements and turnover in the department as reason to highlight members of the department on Facebook. First up: Chief Ed Kondracki. His picture, a brief bio, and the chief's favorite motto, "Focus on the Positive."
