Police Take Delivery of New Squads

Written by

It might look a little weird at first.   La Crosse cops will soon be patrolling the streets in new squad cars.  Kind of station-wagony looking things.

A prime example of 'to the winner goes the spoils' often plays out in the Wisconsin legislature...

Traditionally, the majority party in the Assembly or Senate claims the biggest Capitol offices for itself. Such a switch could happen again soon, since Democrats regained control of the Senate yesterday. Senator Jennifer Shilling of La Crosse is now in the majority, but she hopes she won't have to change offices before November. And she has other ideas about how offices should be assigned, such as by committee membership.

Shilling hopes that the transition in Senate leadership will not cost too much tax money.

It might feel like a repeat of Riverfest weather today in La Crosse, if the mercury reaches 100.

But the heat wave isn't expected to last long enough for local agencies to open cooling centers at night. La Crosse County health educator Al Graewin says special shelters used in very hot or very cold weather might become a more permanent offering.

 

More than a dozen people used cooling centers in La Crosse during a three-night period, beginning on July 4th.

When Oktoberfest comes this year, plenty of kids and families are expected to spend some time at the northside festgrounds.

The shelter in Copeland Park is being renamed the 'L-H-I Community Festplatz.'  Oktoberfest director Tina Severson says the facility will be set aside specifically for family-friendly activities. But it will not be open the final Friday and Saturday of the fest:

 

Dance contests, video gaming, and martial arts events are among the attractions set for this year in the 'festplatz.'

Written by

Bill Feehan, La Crosse area businessman and candidate for Wisconsin state Senate, says that his campaign has raised more than $75 thousand. That leads all republican challengers for the state senate. He says it gives him a better chance to get out talk to voters.

Feehan says people are recognizing that there is a better economic future for our state, and that this race is crucial to achieving it.
