New Ideas Proposed For Courthouse Parking Lot

Written by

The possible need for new office space for La Crosse County government has forced the county to consider building plans for the courthouse parking lot.

On Thursday, a county committee heard a report about potential options for the block known as 'Lot C.' Community development specialist Brian Fukuda admits that the county is reluctant to give away much parking space.  The report says Lot C could be a good spot for a hotel or museum...or a joint business venture between local government and private business.  A courthouse stood on that lot for 60 years, until the building was torn down in the 1960's to make way for a Montgomery Ward store.

Huge Pot Farm Bust

Written by

GRANTSBURG, Wis. (AP) Burnett County sheriff's officials say hunters have uncovered a sophisticated marijuana farm with nearly 3,300 plants.

Chief Deputy Scott Burns says the farm had an extensive irrigation system and man-made holding ponds with a network of tubing that supplied water to every plant. Burns says the growers had the plants spaced out in the brush and trees so it was more difficult to spot from the air.

No suspects were found, but a small camp with some abandoned equipment was found. Burns says deputies will investigate whether the operation is connected to another large farm found in neighboring Pine County, Minn., this summer. More than 5,000 marijuana plants were discovered in that bust, which is about 40 miles away.

Name Change Flares In Minnesota

Written by

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) A long-running dispute over the name of the Washington NFL franchise is flaring up in Minnesota. American Indian groups and supporters say the construction of a new Minnesota Vikings stadium offers a chance to put new pressure on the NFL over the Washington Redskins name and logo. They're asking the agency building Minnesota's new stadium to ban the word Redskins on publicly owned signs or address systems there, as well as the existing Metrodome when the Vikings host Washington Nov 7.

Stadium authority spokeswoman Jenn Hathaway says the board may have a formal response next week. Opponents of the Redskins name say they'll protest at the Metrodome before the game.

President Barack Obama told The Associated Press last week the team should consider changing the name.

A dramatic chapter in the history of the La Crosse Library appears to have a happy ending, for now...

A September decision to shut down the library's South Branch to save money has been overridden by the library board, which has found the money needed to keep the branch open for 2014. The board's decision followed a public hearing on Thursday.  Library board president Tom Sleik says revenue decisions made by the legislature have a major impact on the La Crosse Library budget.
