The future of a high-end Shelby subdivision hangs in the balance. You got Shelby, the county, the school district and developers all pushing forward on the plan for Willow Heights, the former Irish Hills golf course. And then the city of La Crosse. With a mayor thinking he can work out a deal by Thursday's city council meeting to share tax revenue from the development. And without that deal, the council might not approve the subdivision plans
 
 
 
 
 
Shelby town chair Tim Candahl is frustrated with the city and expresses his doubts that any deal will get done. La Crosse has some jurisdiction over the planned neighborhood because it lies within three miles of city limits.

Bucks Arena Deal Comes with Protections, Limits

Written by
The plan for a new Milwaukee Bucks arena looks like this. Governor Walker says the plan includes $250 million already committed by the Bucks' current and former owners. The other half will come from taxpayers, a contribution capped at $250 million. The taxpayer cost would grow to an estimated $400 million over 20 years with interest. THe state's would kick in $80 million. Milwaukee County Executive, Chris Abele  says the plan is in the best interest of taxpayers.
 
 
 
The deal must now pass the Milwaukee Common Council and, more importantly, the GOP controlled Legislature.....where some have said the plan does not belong in the state budget....but an attached amendment to the budget.

Same Day, Different Race for the Fourth

Written by

Riverfest in La Crosse already includes patriotic activities for the 4th of July...but this year, a couple more holiday-themed events are being added. The morning of the 4th, a Saturday, will feature the Firecracker 4 Mile Run-Walk and the Liberty Dash mile-long race. Emily Sturmoski from the city park and rec department says the Liberty event will be for two different levels of runner, competitive and just plain fun level.

 

Both races replace the 5-K and 10-K Chileda Classic runs, which were held for more than 30 years in connection with Riverfest.

They have more questions to ask before settling on a new police chief in Campbell. After interviewing La Crosse police Sergeant Drew Gavrilos last night, members of the Campbell town board announced that they will interview one other candidate next Wednesday, and could make a hiring decision then. The town has gone without a full-time police chief for almost an entire year, since the previous chief was put on leave for harassing a local resident, and then stepped down from his post.

Track Meet Brings Thousands to La Crosse

Written by

The WIAA state track meet has been a major tourist draw for La Crosse for over 25 years. The two-day track finals begin today at the U-W-L stadium, and local convention bureau director Dave Clements says the championships bring many athletes and families to town who have never seen La Crosse before.  He says the meet is a wonderful setting that brings people back to town because their experiences are so positive. 

 

Clements says attendance at the track meet has leveled off in the last couple of years, to around 22-thousand. That makes it one of the three biggest tourist events during the year in La Crosse.

You don't have to be an expert hunter to find the treasure in the popular medallion searches tied to La Crosse's seasonal festivals. Ask Heather Linville, who has lived in La Crosse for less than a year. On Wednesday, she discovered the Riverfest medallion in Chad Erickson Park, after her boyfriend worked out just three days worth of clues.  Heather says her friends are amazed and tells us that just one other person was in the park when she spotted the medallion, and that person didn't seem to be looking for the prize. She says she was delayed in going to Erickson Park, because she had to wait for a plumber to show up at her home first.
