POT DOWN.................TALK OVER
As the La Crosse Central robed choir sings, I Love My Country, veterans and members of the La Crosse Community remember those who have lost their lives serving our country and the vets who are still here with us. The Memorial Day observance doesn’t just bring vets closer together, it’s a community event with a long standing tradition. 90 years now. And it's been a tradition for La Crosse School Board member, Dave Rudolph.
There will be a Memorial Day parade in downtown La Crosse on Monday starting at 9 a.m. It will start on King and 5th streets and go to the Oak Grove Cemetery.
Over 90 thousand absentee ballots went out to voters this week......and a heavier rush is expected next week. At least that's we are hearing from local city clerk's. As of Thursday, over 1545 total ballots went out in La Crosse....415 of those were absentee voters who voted in the clerk's office. Onalaska is also experiencing a high turnout of absentee voters, 200 in office by Thursday and almost 1000 in all. And in Sparta, City Clerk Julie Larson said after a slow start in office voting, she, too, expects more to come in next week. They have had a total of 145 as of Thursday. The recall election is June 5th in Wisconsin.
So far so good for the Highway 35 project going through Onalaska. And along the way...it hasn't all been road construction says City Engineer Jarrod Holter.
He says a team of 10 archeaologists have found a variety of native american fire pits and artifacts...all being worked on as the construction continues. No delays have been reported nad work should be wrapped up by November.
Charges made against the La Crosse county administrator will get a public hearing this summer...
No date has been set, but the county ethics board has agreed to hear arguments that Steve O'Malley illegally used his position of power to promote the city administrator referendum defeated last month in La Crosse. O'Malley believes his activities aimed at getting La Crosse voters to support the position of administrator were proper. Ethics board chairman Rick Kyte says it's possible that just one hearing will be needed to decide whether O'Malley broke any laws.
So...are you ready for some Logger baseball? General Manager, Chris Goodell, is. And it's going to be a very busy summer for the entire Loggers staff.
