The Board of Education for the School District of La Crosse voted Tuesday night in special session to award a contract to Fowler and Hammer to serve as the general contractor for the district’s new north side school.

On a hot night.....if someone walks into your store with a hoodie and mask on.....you know it won't be good. As was the case at Kwik Trip on George Street in La Crosse early this morning.
La Crosse Police responded an armed robbery just before 1 this morning. Upon arrival officers had contact with store employees. Police say a guy walked into the Kwik Trip, showed a gun and demanded money. The guy was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up over his head and had a black mask and white gloves on. He took cash and two cartons of cigarettes and then left in an unknown direction.
Call La Crosse Police if you have any info.
