The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Athletics Department says that Festival Foods and LHI have committed to providing corporate sponsorship for all 19 of the Eagles’ varsity programs. The initial term of each agreement is five years.
In exchange for their sponsorships, UW-L Athletics will incorporate Festival Foods and LHI branding into its marketing efforts and its facilities, including signage, public address announcements, in-game promotions, scoreboard recognition, website recognition and program advertising.
UW-L Director of Athletics Josh Whitman says Dave and Barb Skogen and Don and Roxanne Weber have long been supporters of Eagle student-athletes, making it only fitting that their companies would choose to partner with the athletic program in such a significant way.
On Wednesday, all employees from the School District of La Crosse will gather at Central High School to celebrate the beginning of the 2011-12 school year.

The all staff event begins at 8:00 a.m. in the Central High School auditorium and is scheduled to run until approximately 9:30 a.m.
The future of the La Crosse Spartans is in limbo.
The indoor football team is ceasing operations for now and is seeking a new owner, now that co-owner and general manager Chris Kokalis has taken a job with a new football franchise in Cedar Rapids. The Titans in Cedar Rapids will be coached by Kyle Brown, who was the Assistant Coach for the Spartans, and brother to Spartans Head Coach, Gilbert Brown. La Crosse Center manager Art Fahey is looking for someone to buy the Spartans, to keep the team going at the local arena.
They have a playground to rebuild...
Village leaders in Rockland are discussing ideas for repairing or replacing the playground in Gaylord Park that was burned down over the weekend. The village's park committee will meet at the park tonight to view the damage. The 25-thousand dollar playground equipment just installed last fall was ruined by a fire, allegedly set last Saturday night by three teenagers.
Mark Neumann has lots of reasons to run for Wisconsin's US Senate seat next year. 14 trillion of them, actually. The former congressman is making the nation's burgeoning $14 trillion debt and dealing with it the cornerstone of his campaign. It doesn't appear to Neumann that anyone in Washington understands the basic principle that you can't continually spend more money than you have without running into trouble. Neumann, a republican, is the first to declare a candidacy for the seat being vacated by Herb Kohl next year.
