Weddings And Basketball Bring Dough To Lax Center

Written by

One reason that the La Crosse Center is so busy during most of the year is to make up for a drop in activities in the summer.

Center manager Art Fahey has said that big musical acts prefer outdoor concerts in the warm weather months. That leaves the arena open for other money-making events...such as conventions, and lots of wedding receptions.

 

The main attraction this week at the Center has been Don Zierden's basketball camp. Coach Z started the camp around the time he led the Bobcats basketball team in the late 90's.  And the Milwaukee Bucks will play a pre-season game here in October, for the first time in four years.

Plans To Expand Winona Bridge Making Some Progress

Written by

The five-year anniversary of a deadly bridge collapse in Minneapolis has brought attention to the condition of other Minnesota bridges...

In Winona, Mayor Jerry Miller has been busy trying to work out repairs or a replacement of the aging river bridge. Miller says Winona is getting plenty of help from elected leaders, from the governor to U-S Senators.

 

Less than a year after the Twin Cities disaster, Winona's bridge was shut down for several days after the discovery of corroded gusset plates.

Kids Count OK

Written by
Wisconsin ranks 10th in education, 15th in economic well being, and 18th for both health and family values. Those numbers coming from the latest Kids County nationwide report. Some stronger numbers in La Crosse County says Children and Family Center President, Michael Boehm.



Boehm says one number that sticks out negatively across the state is the percentage of teens abusing illegal drugs and alcohol. Nine percent of the state s teens abuse those substances. That has stayed the same, while the national abuse rate has dropped to around seven percent.
