03 September 2015

Good things can happen when people, and communities, work together. That's why there is much excitement about a new mutual aid agreement being developed among fire departments in La Crosse...

They were hoping just to beat last year's goal...but came out about 25 per cent over the mark.

Organizers of the Letter Carriers' Food Drive in the La Crosse area collected 125-thousand pounds of food on May 12th. That compares to 100-thousand pounds collected a year ago. Kyle Brown from the Great Rivers United Way says donations collected at drop-off sites in La Crosse and Onalaska will go to charities within those communities.  The letter carriers' food campaign has been conducted every May for 20 years.

O'Malley Critics Want E-Mails Investigated

Written by

How serious are the charges of ethics violations against La Crosse County Administrator Steve O'Malley?

Serious enough, perhaps, to cost O'Malley his job, according to Mike Tellier of the La Crosse Watchdog organization.

 

Tellier and other critics accuse O'Malley of breaking the law by using county e-mails to promote the city administrator idea in La Crosse, or to speak out against Governor Scott Walker. The county ethics board will review some of O'Malley's activities during a meeting tomorrow.

Mortgage Borrowing Hot While Other Borrowing Not

Written by

Borrowing for homes?  Pretty good market for that.   Borrowing for cars? Boats? Any other big purchase?  Not so hot, says Wayne Oliver at State Bank Financial in La Crosse.  He sees a very conservative public not much willing to take chances on big ticket items after a frightening recession that ended three years ago.  Doesn't mean they're worried about the current economy.....

 

 

Oliver says conservative spending is probably healthier for the individual, but makes for sluggish economic growth.

Kind Questions Defense Budget

Written by

Recent months have seen a flurry of headlines about cuts to the U.S. defense budget. Last week, lawmakers in the House of Representatives even passed a bill that was meant to spare national security spending from future cuts by reducing school lunch funding and other social programs. Congressman Ron Kind talked with WIZM news about the defense portion of the budget.

Kind says the government is spending 2 billion dollars a week when they were supposed to be sending more troops home. A budget item he says he just doesn't get.

Central Commons A Go

Written by

The Commons Renovation Project at Central High School got the green flag this week from the school board and construction on the $201 thousand project will start as soon as school is out. Principal, Jeff Fleig ( FLAG ) says he couldn't be happier.

Three walls will be removed to increase the square footage and provide an open concept atmosphere. The walls, floor, and columns will be upgraded. Next, a permanent concession stand and ticket booth will be built. Finally, the School Store and Altra Credit Union will share a space which will make both more accessible to students and visitors. All with about $146 thousand in donations.

Central High Gets Bronze

Written by

Earlier this week we told you that Onalaska High School had received a gold medal rating as a top ten school from U.S. News and World Report. Now, La Crosse’s Central High School has learned that their school had received a bronze medal ranking from the same magazine.

According to the report, 77% of Central students scored proficient or advanced in English and 81% in Math, respectively, both higher than the state average.

U.S. News has been publishing the Best High Schools list since 2007 as a way to recognize schools across the country that are performing well and providing them as a model to other schools as a way to inspire educators
and communities to do better.

Being number four at something can be a pretty good achievement...and so it is for the La Crosse area Boy Scouts.

The national Scouting organization ranks the Gateway Area Council as the fourth-best council in the U-S, based on a set of several criteria. Local director Sean Henneman says he knew the La Crosse scouting program was good...but didn't realize it was rated so close to the top.

 

The Gateway Council has a high retention record...meaning about 70 per cent of the local boys who enter Scouting stay in the program for many years.

He admitted he was 'caught red handed' selling drugs in La Crosse...

Now, Jamario McKnight is scheduled to be sentenced this July on drug charges, following a plea hearing yesterday. McKnight and a second man were caught in a police sting in the Copeland Park area. He was charged with delivering cocaine and possessing marijuana. McKnight is from the Chicago area, and told La Crosse cops that he came to western Wisconsin after being told local buyers pay 'good money' for drugs.

City Pleas for No Storm Sewer Dumping

Written by
Changing the oil and dumping it in the street?   Don't do it.  The city of La Crosse is warning against dumping into the city's storm sewers.  The storm sewers run directly to the river and pollutants go to the Mississippi untreated.   Along with obvious prohibitions against dumping oil and other very clearly toxic substances into storm sewers, the city's rules against dumping also include soap of all kinds, human bodily waste, and lawn clippings.
