Incomplete police chase data raises suspicions

01 September 2015

It seems the public's mistrust of police is at an all-time high. Most of the time, that mistrust is misplaced. But sometimes people have reason to be suspicious of law...

United Way Has Goals Set For Drive

Written by

They're almost halfway to the goal already...

The Great Rivers United Way has collected nearly 900-thousand dollars toward the goal of two million, 50-thousand dollars for its 2012 fall campaign.  The early funds were raised through a Pacesetter campaign.  United Way president James Falvey wants to remind potential donors that some families are not as well off as others:

Twenty-nine service groups receive funds in the local United Way district that covers five counties.

Bike and Ped Plan Presented

Written by

People who do a lot of biking and walking in La Crosse probably have a wish list of things that would make it easier and safer to get around.  Some of those things might be in the plan getting presented at the Radisson tonight.  The city's bike and pedestrian is in its final form and Tim Keneipp, on the committee that developed the plan, says it's a start towards fulfilling wishes

 

 

The city council would have to approve the bike and pedestrian plan which contains, among other things, lots of new paved trails and bike lanes.  Presentation is between 6 and 8 tonight in the Radisson ballroom.

Alternate Side Parking Exemption Showing Signs of Life

Written by

Despite recommendations against it, a city council committee has agreed to keeping an alternate side parking exemption in place around UW La Crosse.  Among those who urged the council to ditch the exemption program has been interim police chief Rob Abraham.  He's got plenty of reasons.  Safety's a big one

 

 

Critics say the wintertime exemption doesn't work because people in the area never get around to moving their cars when notified to do so.  The full city council will vote on the exemption next week.

Will Family Zone Be A Fixture At Fest

Written by

The Changing the Culture of Risky Drinking Coalition's Family Zone at this year’s Oktober­fest, sits on the former Mobil Oil site on Coplenad Avenue. But the City of La Crosse would like to eventually develop that land. If they do.....what happens to the zone that saw 450 watch the Maple Leaf Parade last year?

 

Catherine Kohlkmire says after looking at Oktoberfest in particular, the committee decided to implement an alcohol free zone, or the Family Zone, for the first time on the Maple Leaf Parade route. For now, it will be on the same sight this year....opening at 7am on the 29th.
