Two men who have worked on the expansion at Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse are out of the hospital, after separate accidents.

Each man fell at least 15 feet from scaffolding at the construction site on Wednesday, but the two falls were not related. Gundersen Lutheran spokesman Chris Stauffer says safety inspectors are still looking into the situation.

 

Stauffer admits there was confusion among emergency responders, when they received two calls within five minutes about falls at the hospital site.

It wasn't a popular purchase with everybody on French Island...

But plans are moving ahead to transfer the Campbell Town Library from the town hall to a former church on Lakeshore Drive. The town board approved the 112-thousand dollar deal in March. Now, town leaders including clerk Chad Hawkins are working on ways to raise money to remodel the church, including a fundraiser next month.

 

One reason the town board used to justify the library expansion was to make Campbell self-sufficient, to avoid being annexed to the city of La Crosse.

A new facility for end-of-life care and assisted living is headed to Green Island...

Construction begins in a few weeks for the 30-million dollar Eagle Crest South, on land along 7th Street provided by Gundersen Lutheran. Todd Wilson, the CEO of Bethany Lutheran Homes, says the existing Eagle Crest North complex in Onalaska will set a good example for the new hospice center.

 

More than 150 apartments for seniors and hospice patients will be located at Eagle Crest. Wilson says Gundersen and Mayo had started planning a similar facility, but the project ran into 'difficulties.'  Eagle Crest is scheduled to open late next year.

Houston County's loss is Duluth's gain...

Then again, you might say Houston County isn't really 'losing' over a million dollars in emergency relief money. The county is returning that money to the state of Minnesota because the cash wasn't needed. It was left over from about three million dollars provided by the state after severe flooding in the summer of 2007. Last week, the county board approved a state request to have the money returned, so it can be used for flood relief in Duluth.
