Representative Steve Doyle will be hosting a community meeting at the Holmen High School Commons tonight from6 – 7:30 pm on the proposed CapX2020 electric transmission project. The public is invited to learn more about the project and to ask questions.
On Sunday, the public saw the completion of the new Emergency, Radiology and Registration Departments at Mayo Clinic Health System in Sparta. A $1.9 million project that brought in $1.6 million from staff, community and business donations. Dr. Tim Johnson is the CEO of Fransiscan Healthcare and talked about having a new digital mammography area in the e.r.
Two other new areas include digital x-ray and radiology scanner which gives off less radiation. In all...the two phase project cost around $9 million.
The Blair Taylor School District is looking at going to a 4-day school week....and they have the approval from the Department of Public Instruction. But before kids start thinking it's a 3-day weekend coming...Superintendent, Dennis Pervetski says think again.
He says students would likely have either Monday or Friday off and classes
would start at about 8 a.m. and end no later than 4 p.m. A firm structure will
come after public meetings are held. If it's approved, they would become the
first district in the state to have 4 day school weeks.
The students who normally live in Drake Hall at U-W-L are spending Sunday night somewhere else. A basement fire early Sunday morning has led to evacuation of the dorm. Nobody was hurt, and the cause of the fire has not been determined. Campus police say the fire may have started in or near a couch in the basement lounge.
