Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010
For those of us who have stepped onto a school campus or into a school cafeteria in the United States, it is hard not to notice the abundance of bad food choices. Greasy pizza, fried snacks
The money will be used to increase the number of children in school lunch programs. In addition, unhealthy food choices will be replaced with better options. Lacrosse School Nutritionist, Joni Ralph, says she likes what she has seen so far.....what happens down to the road.....well that remains to be seen.
Art's Afire At UWL
Things got a little hot yesterday when somebody was working on metal in the art department at U-W-La Crosse.
Some metal started on fire inside a kiln on the first floor of the Center for the Arts. The fire did not spread outside the kiln, but firefighters evacuated the building just in case. The building's ventilation system dispersed most of the smoke. The arts building had to be evacuated for almost two hours.
Should we think about Spring Flooding?
The Mississippi River remains a couple feet higher than normal indicating water still is draining through the tributary systems. And with all this snow.......spring flooding gonna be a problem?
Mike Welvaert, hydrologist with the National Weather Service in La Crosse says near-record snowfalls on top of waterlogged soils combined with rivers and streams still draining heavy autumn rains mean a higher-than-normal chance of spring flooding in the Coulee Region, especially between La Crosse and Eau Claire.
He says with rivers and streams not being able to rid themselves of all the water we had 2 months ago, expect some higher levels of flooding.
