They are usually known for their electric, high powered musical sounds around Christmas time.....playing sold out shows all over the country. But the Lacrosse Center will be filled with different sounds this time when the Trans Siberian Orchestra performs in April. And with 2 huge concerts coming starting next month, Center Director Art Fahey says why go anywhere else?
Ticets are already on sale for Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert......they go on sale December 9th for Trans Siberian Orchestra. Date of that show is April 19th.

Tonight the city council debate about a city administrator begins in La Crosse.
A proposal getting committee hearing tonight would add a top manager to city hall and strip duties from the mayor. Councilman Dick Swantz says the proposal is not targeted at current mayor Matt Harter
Swantz says a city administrator certainly would not come without costs, but he believes the position would also make government run more effectively and make for better long range planning in the city.
Local companies stand to pick up some business, based on what the La Crosse city council does in the coming month.
The council is deciding whether to limit tow companies on the city's 'wrecker of the week' list to just those based in La Crosse. Which is only what other cities and villages do already, says Craig Redenbaugh with Craig's Towing in La Crosse
If the change is approved by the council, those companies getting one week rotations as 'wrecker of the week' would go from nine to about five.
The CapX2020 project was at the forefront of the Holmen School Board meeting tonight. Opposition was the key word. The board voted on a resolution opposing the entire project.
The high voltage power line project would have about 150 miles of power lines, some of which would run through La Crosse County. They would actually come to an end at a substation near Holmen, which would run past two schools and a projected third building.
Board Member, Cheryl Hancock, told WIZM News that the resolution means the district is now on record with the Public Service Commission opposing CapX2020.
