More than five thousand dollars was raised over the weekend in La Crosse, to help fund a suicide prevention group.
Dave Clements of the La Crosse Convention Bureau says this was the fourth year of the fund-raiser at Schmidty's restaurant. Clements founded the 'Joe Was Just Joe Foundation' after his son committed suicide nearly five years ago. A silent auction brought in much of the money, including 125 dollars for a poster promoting a 1985 John Mellencamp concert at the La Crosse Center, when Clements was the center manager.
The clock is ticking down toward the end of the year, with little progress made lately on some village improvement projects in Holmen.
New village offices and an expanded library are being proposed for village-owned land on the Holmen Kornfest grounds. But county library director Chris McArdle Rojo doesn't know when construction on new buildings could happen. The Holmen library is located in a former grocery store. The village talked about moving the library into a church near the middle school, but that plan fell through about three years ago.
It wasn't your normal Sunday matinee at the La Crosse Community Theatre.
Sunday's performance of 'A Christmas Story' was the last LCT show in the downtown building it has occupied for 44 years. The group moved into the former 5th Avenue movie theatre in November 1968, and has put on about 300 plays in the building ever since. Morrie Enders was the theatre's director for 18 of those years, and he was back in La Crosse for the occasion, playing Santa Claus in the holiday show. Six weeks from now, LCT will be performing 'Macbeth' in its new theatre along the Mississippi.
