Stealing is bad. Stealing food from the hungry. Now that's really bad. The WAFER food pantry in La Crosse is out roughly five hundred pounds of frozen food that was supposed to donated to the hungry in the area. Five hundred pounds of meats and pizza, fish and shrimp are gone from a freezer at WAFER. They think it might have been an inside job.
The LaCrosse area finally saw some rain over the past few days. But, not enough to lift any of the burn bans in place throughout the county. Dry and windy conditions have left most of the county at risk for fires to spring up. Last week local firefighters were busy fighting a number of brush fires.
America's past time will continue at UW-LaCrosse. The baseball team was endanger of being dropped due to budget shortfalls. With the deadline to save the team looming two anonymous donors stepped up and provided enough financial backing to keep the Eagles baseball team going through the 2015 season. The anonymous couple donated 100 thousand bucks to keep baseball at UWL.
LaCrosse football fans definitely had something to cheer about this weekend. Indoor football was back in town Saturday night as the Spartans put up a fight in their home opener a 39 - 27 loss to the Omaha Beef. After getting behind 14-0 LaCrosse fought back and could have tied the game in the 4th quarter if they could have found success on a two point conversion. Running back Mark Bonds led the Spartans with three T.D. runs. They're back in action this weekend at the LaCrosse Center with a rematch coming against the Green Bay Blizzard. The Spartans are now 0-4.
