Promise Future Center Staffing

Written by

So after the announcment last week that La Crosse Promise Future Centers will open in August in area La Crosse School District schools........the question now is who will staff these centers and the La Crosse Promise.

Jerry Kember, former superintendent of La Crosse Public Schools, has been serving as Interim Director of La Crosse Promise and has been a driving force behind the organization since its inception. In December of last year, after two years of extensive study and discussions with diverse groups throughout the region, La Crosse Promise decided to go forward with plans to open Future Centers this fall if they could raise $250 thousand for each of the next 3 years. And they did.

Driver Following Cop Too Close Gets 4th OWI

Written by
A La Crosse guy might have avoided his fourth drunk driving charge this week-end.  But tailgating a squad car on fourth street probably didn't help him.   Cops say 48 year-old Kenneth Pederson not only tailgated the cop on Sunday afternoon but then sped up to pass around the squad.   Pederson, who blew a .18, says he was just in a hurry to get groceries and go home.

City Putting Final Touches on Garbage Rules

Written by

Final touches coming today on the latest version of new garbage regulations for the city of La Crosse.  City public works director Dale Hexom says the last bits of work have to do with dealing with scavengers.  Especially the ones that go after old TV's.  Breaking them.  Leaving a mess.   Hexom says the new rules will assign responsibility for that mess

 

 

The city council has been trying to pass updated garbage rules for months.  Landlords have, until now, been able to block a vote on new rules.  The city's board of public works votes on the final ordinance today.

The last remaining Logan High School teacher to have taught at both the 'old' Logan and the current building starts her retirement this week...

English teacher Dorina Lukins, a U-W-La Crosse graduate, says she didn't think how long she might be a teacher when she started at Logan in 1978.  Lukins was given a serenade by a group of bagpipers during her last full day at the high school on Friday. The bagpipe surprise was arranged by her friend, La Crosse Public Library director Kelly Krieg-Sigman, who had won an auction to have the pipers play for a special occasion.

Koula Trial Begins With Jury Selection

Written by

More than two years after the shooting deaths of a Barre Mills couple, their son goes on trial in La Crosse this week.

Jury selection could last all day today in the Eric Koula case. Police and prosecutors believe Koula killed his parents in May of 2010 to get money to offset debts from stock trading. Eric Koula's attorneys claim evidence at the crime scene points to professional-style murders. The trial had been scheduled for last December, but delays in processing or reporting evidence led to two postponements of the case.

A long-time La Crosse business is losing its C-E-O to a company in Duluth...

Steve Burgess of State Bank Financial will become president of the National Bank of Commerce, after 11 years at the La Crosse bank. State Bank vice president Bruce Norgaard moves up to succeed Burgess.

It could be that Democrats are not as committed to defeating Governor Scott Walker as Republicans are committed to keeping him in office.

An enthusiasm gap may account for the huge financing gap that shows Walker 20-million dollars or more ahead of the Milwaukee mayor in the recall election. Joe Heim from the U-W-La Crosse political science department thinks Democrats are saving their money for President Obama, or other candidates around the country.

 

Besides money, Walker has been getting major support from conservative groups. A bus tour by 'Americans for Prosperity' visits La Crosse on Friday, to campaign for Walker.

For a while now, an office at Wettstein's has resembled a pantry...with boxes and cans of food stacked up against the wall.

The 28-hundred pounds of food donated to the store during May are being divided up between the Salvation Army and the WAFER food shelf. Store owner Dan Wettstein says the month-long promotion brought in many more visitors than the regular customers...for example, a man who brought in 10 pounds of food without shopping for anything from Wettstein's.  The 3rd Street store offered bargains on appliance sales and services in exchange for the food items donated.
