It might feel like a repeat of Riverfest weather today in La Crosse, if the mercury reaches 100.

But the heat wave isn't expected to last long enough for local agencies to open cooling centers at night. La Crosse County health educator Al Graewin says special shelters used in very hot or very cold weather might become a more permanent offering.

 

More than a dozen people used cooling centers in La Crosse during a three-night period, beginning on July 4th.

When Oktoberfest comes this year, plenty of kids and families are expected to spend some time at the northside festgrounds.

The shelter in Copeland Park is being renamed the 'L-H-I Community Festplatz.'  Oktoberfest director Tina Severson says the facility will be set aside specifically for family-friendly activities. But it will not be open the final Friday and Saturday of the fest:

 

Dance contests, video gaming, and martial arts events are among the attractions set for this year in the 'festplatz.'

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.
