New fencing, a new sign, and repaired grave markers...
The cemetery behind Hillview Care Center in La Crosse is newly improved, with many of the changes brought about by a high school student. Eagle Scout Reed Johnson worked for a year, along with other members of Scout Troop 22, to improve the cemetery that has been used more than a century. Reed was eager to replace a worn-out sign board which had printed lists of names, but no map. The new permanent sign was produced by Sign Pro. Hillview is recommending that any more people who wish to be buried at the cemetery choose cremation instead, and have their ashes placed in a new 'scatter garden' on the site.
La Crosse's second house fire in three days leaves a home on Ferry Street with moderate fire damage, and severe smoke damage. But, no one was hurt in Friday night's fire at the Daniel Klug home. Heavy smoke was reported at the rear of the house, and firefighters were on the scene less than two minutes after getting the call. The fire was doused quickly, and confined to just one section of the house.
Crews already have torn down the downtown Winona building where a large fire is believed to have started this morning...
The fire was first reported around 2 a.m. at the Islamic Center, on the corner of Third and Center in Winona.

The exact cause of the fire has not been determined.
Three branches may be one too many these days for the La Crosse Public Library...
The library board is ready to shut down the South Branch on 16th Street next year, in a cost-cutting move. James Cherf sits on both the city council and the library board. He says in the past, the library has been able to find money aside from tax dollars to maintain an endowment. But Cherf says the library has reached the point where it doesn't have the funding to keep all of its programs going.
