Local Coast Guard Auxiliary to Watch River's Edge

Volunteers watching for people falling into the drink in La Crosse? Nothing new about that. Volunteers keeping an eye on the water's edge from the Mississippi? Brand new. The local Coast Guard Auxiliary is taking up the challenge. They'll be floating the river, from ten at night until about three in the morning. Not every night.




Marion Byerson, retired La Crosse police detective says the auxiliary will be out Thursday through Saturday nights. It was his idea to help watch for people falling in with coast guard auxiliary volunteers.
