Big Money Coming For Big Race

Written by

A lot of money is pouring into Wisconsin for the upcoming senate race. The national Senate campaign committees plan to spend a combined $10 million on the race. UW-L Political Scientist, Joe Heim, says it’s another sign of how significant the Tommy Thompson-Tammy Baldwin contest could be, in determining whether Republicans can win the majority in that chamber in November.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said it was adding over $ 2.5 million to its pot, for a total of $5.2 million in support of Tammy Baldwin’s candidacy. The Republican campaign committee has committed $5 million to try and help Tommy Thompson win.

By this time next year, the Hollywood Theater in La Crosse could be back in business.

New owner Phil Addis is moving along with extensive repairs to the 76-year-old movie theater. Addis tells us his top priority now is to fix the badly damaged, leaking roof.  Another priority...fund-raising. Addis has posted five different colored versions of a new Hollywood sign on line, and is asking people to donate money as they cast votes for their favorite choice.  The 42-foot-high sign would resemble one that stood above the Hollywood when it opened in 1936.

Bangor Post Office Re-opening Set For August 25th

Written by

The wait is almost over in Bangor...

Customers of the Bangor Post Office will be able to use that downtown building again on August 25th. The post office was closed on short notice seven months ago because of mold and mildew problems. But the building owner has removed the mildew and mold, and made other improvements. Because of the closing, postal services in Bangor had to be moved to a grocery store outside downtown.

One more attempt to end that winter parking experiment in the university neighborhood...

La Crosse's Parking Utility Board is urging the city council to 'dissolve' the special winter rules around U-W-L, and go back to alternate side parking. The idea of increasing parking fines in that area has been proposed, but council chair Audrey Kader says that's not fair to everyone in town.

 

University students are hoping the special zone can stay in effect one more winter, despite evidence that most people in the zone don't move their cars when told to do so.

Tammy Versus Tommy.....Expect What

Written by

So now that the primary is out of the way........what can we expect from the two remaining senate candidates, Tommy Thompson and Tammy Baldwin? Shouldn't be too bad says UW-La Crosse Political Professor, Joe Heim.

Heim says though you can expect non mud-slinging ad's, you can expect a lot of ad's with a lot of outside money.....just like the recall's.

Lakeview On County Agenda Tonight

Written by

La Crosse county needs to decide whether to spend on improving infrastructure in the current Lakeview Health center or build a facility that would be more cost efficient and better able to adapt to client needs. County Administrator, Steve O'Malley.

He says it would take an estimated $12 million to $13 million just to restore the building to its 1970s state and a three building facility would cost about $31.6 million, but would be eligible for Medicaid funds both for construction and operating costs. The board meets tonight.
