A stubborn city hall may mean no money at all. That's the concern of North La Crosse Business Association president Nick Roush, worried that, by La Crosse city hall playing hardball with the DOT on plans for reconstruction of Rose street, the city may lose all state funding for beautification of the area

 

 

 

Many in city hall want to make 11th hour changes to DOT plans for Rose, saying those plans don't match up with the city's long term transportation vision for La Crosse. The city council votes on the DOT agreement tonight.

Logan Softball Puts Stellar Season on the Line

Written by
It has a 26-and-1 record heading into the Division 2, WIAA state tournament. That one loss for the Logan High School softball team? It came 1-0 to Stevens Point in early May. And now that his Rangers are at state, coach Matt Marohl wouldn't mind being undefeated.  But the team has learned plenty from that one loss and he'll accept it if it helps them win state.  
 
 
 
 
Logan has been ranked number one all season. At 8 p.m. tonight in Madison, the Rangers open with a 25-and-5 New London team that was the runner-up at state last year and won it all two seasons ago.

Driver Cut From Car After Swerving to Miss Deer

Written by

Brake. Don't swerve. That's what they tell you about running into deer on the road. Many don't. Like the 47 year-old Viroqua area woman who swerved to miss a deer yesterday on highway 82 in Vernon county. She overcorrected, rolled her car but was trapped inside. Firefighters had to cut the woman out of her car. Whe was taken to the hospital. Cops are still investigating.

Campbell Chief Selection Could Come Tonight

Written by

Campbell's town board could vote tonight to end a year-long drought without a full-time police chief on duty. It was a year ago this week that former chief Tim Kelemen was placed on leave for using the internet to harass a critic of the town government. Kelemen was off the job for five months before leaving his post in November. This evening, the board will interview a second candidate for chief, Brian Puent (pent). Drew Gavrilos met with the board last week, but supervisors also wanted to hear from Puent before making a final decision.

Jail Mental Health Needs Being Met

Written by

A decade ago, La Crosse County law enforcement was disturbed by a pair of suicides within the jail. They wondered whether enough was being done to help inmates who might be mentally ill. Conditions are much better at the jail now, according to jail therapist Steve Josephson.

 

Josephson says the jail is not a 'torture chamber' for prisoners who have emotional problems. He credits the La Crosse jail with having a good staff who can respond to medical needs.

Big Dollar Development at Center of Town, City Debate

Written by

At stake with a vote this week by the La Crosse city hall: 12 million dollars of development just outside city limits in the town of Shelby. The city council can deny the development. Obviously with that in mind, the Shelby town board has agreed in principle on an agreement to help pay for city services. But the planned development is worth it for the town. And the La Crosse school district, says Shelby town chair, Tim Candahl.  He says the tax revenue from the development will less the tax burden throughout the area. 

 

 

 

The state gives cities like La Crosse zoning jurisdiction over areas within three miles of city limits. Just like the planned Willow Heights subdivision in Shelby.

48 Hour Waiting Period Repeal Passes

Written by

A significantly more dangerous Wisconsin? That's what some lawmakers are saying after the state assembly agreed on Tuesday to end the state's 48 hour waiting period to buy handguns. For certain that puts more women at risk who are already victims of domestic violence, claims democratic state rep, Chris Taylor, who urged her colleagues to turn down the repeal by saying the state needs more gun safety measure.  Not less. The senate has already voted to end the 48 hour waiting period so the bill now goes to governor Walker for a signature.

Possible Shelby, La Crosse Agreement in the Works

Written by

A revenue sharing agreement between city and town? One appears to be in the works between La Crosse and Shelby. Shelby has passed resolution acknowledging people from the town use city services and agreeing to discussions regarding some sort of revenue sharing plan. Such a plan has been spurred by resistance from the city to allow a couple of high end subdivision developments in the town, citing a need to share the cost of providing city services to those areas.
