The Changing the Culture of Risky Drinking Coalition's Family Zone at this year’s Oktoberfest, sits on the former Mobil Oil site on Coplenad Avenue. But the City of La Crosse would like to eventually develop that land. If they do.....what happens to the zone that saw 450 watch the Maple Leaf Parade last year?
Catherine Kohlkmire says after looking at Oktoberfest in particular, the committee decided to implement an alcohol free zone, or the Family Zone, for the first time on the Maple Leaf Parade route. For now, it will be on the same sight this year....opening at 7am on the 29th.
It's hunting time again in Wisconsin.....this time....black bears are the target.
He could be charged with 'misconduct in public office'...
David Johnson is not an elected official, but he's a government maintenance worker for the town of Campbell. Johnson has been arrested on a theft charge, and he's expected in La Crosse County court today. The D-A's office says Johnson is suspected of stealing less than 100-dollars of gas from town supplies to use in his own vehicle.
Could be a well attended city council committee meeting tonight at La Crosse city hall. At least by businesses. The La Crosse Chamber of Commerce has warned businesses about possible impacts of a set of new rules for regulating signs of all kinds, especially electronic signs. Many businesses would be forced to downgrade or get rid of their signs altogether eventually under the new regs. One sign company believes that up to 90 percent of the electronic signs at businesses would be affected. Another sign company estimates that regular static signs at up to 200 businesses would be considered too large or too big.
