Piece by piece, La Crosse's old Hollywood Theater is being restored for use as a showplace.

Voting is underway on the 'hollywoodtheaterlax.com' website on designs for a new theater sign to hang above 5th Avenue. The theater still doesn't have any seats at this time, but owner Phil Addis says new ones are on the way to town.  Addis says the leaking roof of the Hollywood has been fixed, and many more interior repairs are needed before live performances or movies can be scheduled at the nearly 80-year-old theater.

Why Are The Loons Dying

Written by

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) Scientists suspect invasive species may be to blame in the deaths of hundreds of loons on Lake Michigan. Last fall nearly 900 loons and probably more died while migrating south across Lake Michigan. Loons will begin their migration back north from the Atlantic and Gulf coasts in less than a month.

Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey suspect invasive zebra and quagga mussels create ideal conditions in Lake Michigan for the bacteria that produces botulism toxin, which works its way up the food chain into fish including the invasive round goby that are eaten by diving birds including loons.

Some loons that summer in Minnesota migrate via Lake Michigan. It's not clear how many have been affected because the state's loon population has been stable.

Mega Farm Gets Negative Reaction

Written by

 

SARATOGA, Wis. (AP) The quality and quantity of water is a primary concern of those opposed to a 7,000-acre dairy farm in the Wood County community of Saratoga. About 350 people filled the Saratoga Town Hall Sunday to get an update on water testing. County extension agent Peter Manley told the crowd the water quality in Saratoga is above most communities. Manley says none of 79 water samples tested above the recommended level of nitrogen.

The Golden Sands Dairy plans to dig its own high-capacity wells for the farm and its 5,300 animals. Resident Rick Potter says that he's concerned the high-capacity wells will cause his 15-foot-deep well to dry up.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources plans to hold a public hearing on the well permits.
