After more than two months, the investigation of two high-ranking city hall employees in La Crosse has yet to be wrapped up. Municipal prosecutor Pete Kisken and Community development administrator, Lianna Kisken were escorted from city hall at the end of May and have remained on administrative leave since. The city's human resources department confirms for us this week that the two are still being investigated but hasn't said for what. Both continue to draw about six thousand dollars a month in salary while on leave.
Getting from here to there by bike on the northside of La Crosse could become much easier in a couple years. A project that's been on the drawing board for more than a decade for a bike and pedestrian bridge to cross the BNSF rail yard on the northside is heading for a start date. Planning for the bridge began at least a dozen years ago but ran into opposition from the rail company and then a complete redesign when BNSF decided it needed room to expand in the future. Now, that redesign is done. Funding's approved. And city engineer Randy Turtenwald expects to break ground on the 4.3 million dollar bridge next year.
Pro-life activists are calling Barack Obama the most pro-abortion president ever...and they claim he'd be even worse in a second term.

A lot of memories in the old golf club at the Forest Hills golf course in La Crosse. Partly why city park and rec director Steve Carlyon was willing to spend a couple months answering a city council member's question on whether the building might be worth saving even after the council voted in April to tear it down. No, Carlyon has discovered, it's not worth saving
The century-old converted barn is still in use as a banquet facility, but Carlyon guesses it might come down as soon as this fall.
