Designs Considered for La Crosse Center

Written by

The La Crosse Center Board is leaning toward putting a new ballroom and a grand outdoor staircase at the northwest end of the building, close to the Radisson. Board members are reviewing a couple of major design changes to the 35-year-old arena, to make it more competitive with newer convention halls in the region. The board president, Brent Smith, says improvements to the west wall of the center would work better at the north end, even though that's farther away from the parking ramps:

 

The board hopes to get cost estimates for that makeover from a consultant at its June meeting. Smith thinks the city council could vote on Center changes by August or September.

Some uneasiness in communities around Wisconsin as lawmakers consider eliminating guards from prison watchtowers in an effort to save money. Leaders in some communities are worried about safety. Just a couple miles away from Jackson Correctional, Mayor of Black River Falls, Ron Danielson says he's not all that concerned

 

 

 

In all, 60 tower guard jobs in 10 prisons around the state would be eliminated if the budget proposal becomes law.

Bird Flu Appears to Over in Wisconsin

Written by

Wisconsin's department of Ag won't necessarily count the chickens before they're hatched, but it's looking like they can call an end to the avien influenza that swept through a handful of chicken operations in the state and sparked emergency measures. No new bird flu cases reported in three weeks, says the department's Jim Dick, which is mostly relieving

 

 

 

Dick says the department is preparing for another rash of cases of the flu when temps cool again in the fall.

Very likely that a new graduation requirement for Wisconsin high schoolers will be in place in time for the 2017 graduating class. That's the plan for the civics requirement thought up by republican state rep Jim Edming. A citizenship test largely drawn from the questions that new US citizens have to take. Not asking a lot of new graduates, insists Edming

 

 

 

The civics testing requirement is now part of the state budget and will likely only get removed by a governor Walker veto. Students would have to get a 60% on the test to pass.

Officer Nurses Dog Bite

Written by

A La Crosse police officer may be limping noticeably after an interaction with a dog on the northside of La Crosse this weekend. The cop was helping an animal control worker corral two big dogs when one of them--a pit bull--lunged at the officer and wrapped its teeth around the cop's calf. The cop went to the hospital. The owner was ticketed for letting the dogs run loose. The dog is in quarantine at the Humane Society.

Police Search for Armed Robber

Written by

La Crosse police are still searching for the armed robber who victimized a disabled man late Monday night near the area of sixth and King streets downtown. Cops say the 57 year-old victim was on the way to the store to pick up some cold medicine when he was approached by a skinny man with a baseball cap who asked the victim for a light. When the victim reached in his pocket, the perp drew a knife. The thug got away with $43 in cash and $2 scratch off ticket. Police are looking at surveillance video from nearby businesses to get a good picture of the man's attacker.

Warnings to Super Duper Drunks

Written by

Public intoxication warnings this weekend to the barely moving in La Crosse. Including the 25 year-old guy police found yesterday afternoon clinging to a sign post and crying. They say he blew a .36 when they gave him the warning. Also the 57 year-old cops found lying face down in the street at King and sixth on Sunday. He blew a .34.

Would the city of La Crosse be ready for a large train derailment or a crude oil explosion? La Crosse's fire chief wants to be sure that his department has the skill and resources to deal with such a disaster. Chief Gregg Cleveland tells members of a local rail safety group that he appreciates efforts in Congress to provide more training for his crews, in case of a rail emergency.

 

Cleveland spoke at the La Crosse Amtrak station today, along with Senator Tammy Baldwin, who's sponsoring a bill aimed at making the shipment of crude oil much safer.

Seriously Drunk Driver Faces First OWI

Written by

There are drunk drivers and there are the 'how did she do that?' drivers. A woman arrested by La Crosse police over the weekend falls into the latter category. Police say the 35 year old woman hopped a curb and hit a street sign on Sunday afternoon on the northside. Didn't do well on the field sobriety tests, but she was able to hold herself upright. Surprising, considering she blew a .34 on the breathalyzer, over four times the legal limit to drive. The woman refused to admit she had been drinking and said she was coming from her job at a bar.
