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.

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.

The upper Mississippi valley may be very dry this summer, but the big river itself has remained deep enough for most boats.
For that, you can thank the 9-foot channel maintained in the lock and dam system...and the frequent dredging done by the Corps of Engineers. Dan Cottrell from the Corps office at Fountain City says despite the government's best efforts to keep the water deep, boats have run aground on a stretch of Pool 5 near Winona because silt collects in large amounts in that area.
The lower Mississippi has seen much lower water levels, with barges frequently becoming stuck on the river bed. Barge operators have tried to lighten their loads so the boat doesn't displace too much water.
