Tonight's The Night To Start Rotary Lights
About a month's worth of preparation in Riverside Park pays off tonight, when La Crosse's Rotary Lights display is switched on for the holidays.
This is the 18th year for the display, which contributes more food to community pantries than just about any other single event in the area. And festival president Pat Stephens says people from dozens of organizations throughout the region volunteer their time to help.
Two million lights will be turned on in the park after the downtown parade which begins at 5 p-m. Rotary Lights lasts every night from now to New Year's Eve, a total of 39 nights this year.
La Crosse Mayor Will Not Run for Second Term

Harter says he's enjoyed his time in office and accomplished some of what he'd wanted to do, but is ready to go back to a "normal" job. Harter will not rule out another run for office in the future and says he will not endorse a candidate in the upcoming mayoral race.

City Hall would issue alerts to ask people to move their cars, just as it has done in a test zone around the university. But public works boss Dale Hexom points out that those alerts have been widely ignored. The city plans to end its voluntary alternate-side experiment near U-W-L after this winter.
