Murder last week redirected focus of event
The city of La Crosse and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation haven't exactly seen eye to eye lately. In fact, the dispute over the best design for the renovation of...
The Holmen Fire Department has imposed a burn ban until further notice...
It affects an area of 84 square miles, including a large part of Lake Onalaska. Fire chief Doug Schober says open burning, including campfires and burn barrels, will be prohibited until the Holmen area gets significant rain for a day or two. Limits will be put on outdoor cooking fires.
At least one event at Riverfest is being affected by the heat...
The senior breakfast planned for this morning from 7 to 9 a-m is being postponed until tomorrow, when there could be a break in the hot weather. The breakfast will happen Friday morning at the Pepsi Community Tent in Riverside Park.
One week after the Supreme Court upheld the 'Obamacare' law, the bill and the court decision remain major topics that could affect the November elections.
Democrat Tammy Baldwin stands out as the one U-S Senate candidate in Wisconsin supporting the health care law. Baldwin campaigned at Riverfest in La Crosse on the 4th of July. She claims that the four Republicans running against her for Herb Kohl's Senate seat would all like to overturn the court ruling and repeal Obamacare...which is one reason she hopes to win the election.
Xcel Energy hopes to have power restored to some parts of La Crosse by 10 o'clock this morning.

The debate over charging drivers to park in downtown La Crosse ramps has reached the sub-committee stage...
A smaller 'rate control' subcommittee of the city Parking Utility Board is looking into automated gate systems, blocking off the upper floors of each ramp unless a driver pays for a space. Bob Haines from the city public works office says the paid spaces will be either leased long-term, or temporary at 50 cents an hour.
Haines says ramp users could pay with coins, tokens, or special cards. He says gate manufacturers frown on paying with dollar bills, because the cash box would become a target for thieves.
That snap, crackle and pop has a little less pizzazz this fourth of July in La Crosse. The city has banned fireworks because of dry conditions. Not just the normally illegal fireworks that explode or shoot up into the sky, rockets-red-glare style, but the package of fourth of July poppers from Kmart. Dry conditions from extreme heat and no rain for a couple of weeks has led the mayor and the fire department to put a ban on all burning outdoors, including fireworks. The fireworks display shot from Pettibone park in La Crosse will not be affected by the ban and, because it would be almost impossible to do the fourth without burgers, brats and dogs, grilling will also be allowed under the fire ban.
The revival of the Hollywood Theater in La Crosse could take a couple of years...but the process is taking small steps ahead.
Attorney and businessman Phil Addis first toured the vacant theater three months ago after buying it at auction. Now, he's been able to find which light fixtures are working, including some of the neon and Art Deco fixtures in the lobby. Addis also has been shopping for new theater seats. He thinks the theater could hold about 600 modern seats, compared to the thousand or so that were removed from the Hollywood years ago.
