City Burn Ban Continues

Written by

Nearly two weeks after a burn ban was put into place in La Crosse, the fire department says it will remain.  Despite a little bit of rain over the week-end, the fire department says the burn ban will have to stay in place because of the excessively dry conditions in the city.   All of La Crosse county is in a zone of Very High fire danger, according to the DNR, while counties just to the south and east are considered to be in an Extreme fire danger zone.  The La Crosse burn ban includes fireworks and outdoor fire pits while charcoal and gas grills are still allowed for cooking.

Police Get Help in Arrest of Bold Burglars

Written by
Those burglars are getting bold.  La Crosse cops say they've nailed a couple of thugs who let themselves in to an apartment on 11th street in between the UWL campus and downtown early Sunday morning. While there were people inside.   Apparently, the guys who lived in the apartment were sitting out on the deck eating pizza at about one in the morning, looked into the apartment and saw two guys rummaging around inside.  Same guys came out onto the deck and demanded some of the pizza.  A confrontation turned violent quickly.  Cops wound up arresting 23 year-old Anthony Lee and 17 year-old Bret Clark with the help of some good samaritans who happened by at about the time a single officer was wrestling with the two thugs.  Clark and Lee face a number of charges.

It's a popular site for band concerts, and performances during Riverfest and the Rotary Lights celebration.

The bandshell in La Crosse's Riverside Park is due for another renovation, according to the man in charge of the park department. Steve Carlyon wants to see the bandshell returned to its original appearance, making it much smaller...the way it was built 100 years ago.

 

Carlyon expects the project to happen in the next year or two. He's taking his cue from the recent rebuilding of the shelter atop Grandad Bluff, to look more like its original design.

A change of leadership is coming at the Coulee Council on Addictions...

Pat Ruda, the council's director for the last seven years, will leave that job later this month. During Ruda's time in charge of the Coulee Council, the organization took part in the city of La Crosse's efforts to crack down on binge drinking and river drownings. The council's board is now searching for a new agency director.
