A deadly rollover crash in Holmen overnight...

La Crosse police are on the trail of an armed robber wearing a hockey mask today in La Crosse. Police say the guy stole an unspecified amount of money and took off from Firefighters Credit Union on the southside just after 10 this morning. Besides the hockey mask, police say he was also wearing a green shirt with the number 45 on it.
A UW La Crosse student has confirmed for us that he'll be running for assembly against incumbent Democrat Jennifer Shilling. Julian Bradley, a Republican, says he plans to make an official announcement soon about running for the seat held by Shilling since 2000 but he has every intention of running. The 29 year-old Bradley currently works for CenturyLink in La Crosse and lists a stint as an intern with the McCain-Palin campaign on his resume.
An army is converging on La Crosse's Myrick Park tomorrow. It's a work day for the downtown Rotary Club to give the Kids Coulee playground a bit of a facelift. Mostly they'll be doing staining and sealing. Some painting. A big day, says Rotarian Jim Lewis; but also just a start. The organization is also planning to add to the park new facilities for those with disabilities.
It was ten years ago that the Rotary club led the installation of Kids Coulee during over the span of one week-end. Back then it took 37 hundred volunteers to get the job done.
