New City Planner Like Lebron James

Written by
How good is the pick of Jason Gilman to head La Crosse's planning office? At Tuesday's special city council meetings to confirm Gilman, mayor Tim Kabat talked about an email he got about the former longtime Onalaska city planner.  The email made reference to a well-known NBA star, saying the hire was like Lebron James coming home to Cleveland. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The city council confirmed Gilman unanimously. He'll be the first permanent planner in city hall since Larry Kirch left for another job last August.

Economic Boom Means Rush on Downtown Storefronts

Written by

They're down to seven per cent. That's how many storefronts in downtown La Crosse have been empty this month. Robin Moses from the Downtown Mainstreet organization says buildings in the central city have been filling up within the last couple of years.  Where two years ago there were 30 empty storefronts in the downtown, there's about half that number now.

 

Moses has been showing empty buildings to potential tenants in recent weeks. She says there are a couple of vacancies available on Pearl Street, while 5th Avenue has no more unoccupied stores.

Illegal Hmong Group Firing Could Mean Big Check for Vue

Written by

Could a leadership change made five years ago by a community group in La Crosse be reversed by the state of Wisconsin? It's possible, now that the Department of Workforce Development has ruled that Thai Vue may have been the target of age and sex discrimination , when he was fired as head of the Hmong Mutual Assistance Association.  Vue's attorney, Jim Birnbaum, says the former association director could get his job back or maybe have all of his back pay and benefits restored after the apparent illegal firing. 

 

Vue had been director of H-M-A-A for nearly 25 years when he was replaced by a much younger woman. Birnbaum says no date has been set for a 'merits hearing' in Vue's case.

Top Secret Road Meeting Today

Written by

La Crosse's business community has a meeting today to talk about transportation needs. The city Chamber of Commerce is hosting a breakfast meeting, where business leaders will discuss what transportation changes would benefit them. The meeting has led to controversy, because it's closed to the general public...and to the media. Chamber director Vicki Markussen says some of the business representatives expected to attend would be uncomfortable speaking openly at the meeting, if reporters were in the room.

High Court Weighs in on Monroe Couny Jail Brutality

Written by

You beat a jail inmate, you better be doing it for the right reasons.  Part of the message from the US Supreme court in the case of 33 year old Michael Kingsley of Tomah.  He sued Monroe County jailers for civil rights violations, after they used a Taser and got a little rough with him otherwise while transferring him to another cell.  He was in jail on a drug charge.  Complained after they used the taser on him and hit his head on a concrete bunk.  Apparently the dust-up was over Kingsley's refusal to remove a piece of paper hanging from a light in his cell.

Storm Mess Includes Destroyed Amish Store

Written by

Some places got hit much worse than others by a line of fast moving storms that blasted through the region this morning.  While La Crosse saw a little rain and some wind gusts, quarter-sized hail fell in Prairie du Chien with heavy winds snapping power poles there.  Austin got pounded with three inches of quick rain, flooding the city and temporarily closing I-90.  Trees are down all over the region and, near Guttenberg, Iowa, an Amish grocery store has been completely destroyed, roads were blocked by downed trees and several barns were blown down.

Gun Rights Advocate: Carry More Guns to Church

Written by
New restrictions on gun ownership?  Some were calling for that immediately in the wake of the Charleston church shooting.  Nik Clark, president of gun rights group, Wisconsin Carry, says that's dangerous territory some politicians are wading into.  But also familiar territory because those same politicians do the same thing every time.  Clark says lawmakers are merely trying to capitalize on the latest shooting tragedy to advance their anti-gun agenda.  He says the best way to prevent events like the Charleston shooting is for more people to carry guns. Especially in church.

First celebration of its kind in La Crosse.  But it won't be the last.  Juneteenth in Saturday in Copeland Park in La Crosse.  At some point, during the day-long celebration, pretty large crowds.  Pretty thin at other times.  But they'll be back for another shot at the commemorative event next year, says city council member and Juneteenth organizer, Dempsey Miller who says he's fully committed to the event as something that will occur annually.  Juneteenth is a 150 year-old event that's meant to commemorate the emancipation of slaves in the US.
