Bishops Don't Like POLST

Written by

Wisconsin's 5 Biships are taking the Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment pretty seriously. WIZM'S Dan Deicher talked with one of the Bishops.

Bishop William Callahan says patients in nursing homes and hospitals are being asked, on an ever increasing basis, to utilize a form called POLST. He says the document, with boxes to be checked off regarding medical treatment, or the withholding of treatment, is used as an instrument for dealing with end of life decisions if the patient is incapacitated. And that's troubling.

Discussions on the end of life forms and the way they work will be the topic of continuing discussions among not only Bishops in the state...but all Catholics says Callahan.

Lakeview Gets Viewed

Written by

La Crosse County Administrator Steve O'Malley says the county board will look at the future of the Lakeview Health Center in West Salem this month. It does not meet current standards anymore and he talks about what could be done.

O' Malley says it would cost over $13 million just to restore the
building to its 1970s state, not including the additional costs to house residents elsewhere while the work is done. The board will study an initial analysis on August 16th.

Are The Crops Really That Bad

Written by

We keep hearing about how the drought has killed off quite a bit of crops in Wisconsin....but if you drive to one area and see high corn and the next field is brown........what gives.

Pam Jahnke with the Wisconsin Farm Report says it all depends on what type of soil the crops are in....location and how much rain certain parts of the state have had. She admits though......there's more bad then good out there in the fields.

River to Re-open Today After Dredging

Written by
The Mississippi near La Crosse should re-open to barge traffic today after a three day shutdown.  A tow pushing 15 barges ran aground just south of La Crosse on Tuesday, backing up commercial traffic going north and south.  The barge was freed but the Army Corps kept the river closed to dredge sand in the area.  The river should re-open to barge traffic at noon.

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.
