Renaming Of Hood Park Endorsed By Lax Park Board

Written by

A neighborhood park near Gundersen Lutheran could be known as Poage Park soon...

Plans to rename Hood Park for long-ago Olympic athlete George Poage from La Crosse have cleared the first couple of hurdles. Park director Steve Carlyon is leading the charge, because he worries that the name Hood Park suggests crime. City planner Larry Kirch tells the park board he's been researching the Hood Park name for years...and discovered that name was never officially approved by City Hall.  But this time, the Poage name could get formal approval. The park board already has endorsed the idea unanimously.

Freezin' For A Reason At Viterbo Tonight

Written by

Nearly two dozen college students in La Crosse will spend tonight experiencing what many people go through on the streets every night.

Instructor Tom Thibideau's annual homelessness vigil begins at 6 p.m. in a courtyard at Viterbo. Jordan Blaken is one of the students who will spend the night outside in a large cardboard box. She says a Viterbo class on homelessness has taught her about the high demand for community shelters like the West Avenue warming center and the Salvation Army.  Students also will travel to Milwaukee later in the semester, to study how the homeless live in that city.

More Freedom For Easy Riders...Free Ramp Parking

Written by

If you want to park for free in a La Crosse ramp after the city installs ticket stations...try riding a motorcycle.

The city parking board says cycles and scooters will be exempt from the requirement of taking a ticket and paying an hourly fee, once the ticket system takes effect this summer. Main reason for that decision? Motorcycles and scooters can just drive around the gate where cars have to stop for a ticket. Special spots will be set aside in the ramps for the two-wheelers.
