By this time next year, the Hollywood Theater in La Crosse could be back in business.

New owner Phil Addis is moving along with extensive repairs to the 76-year-old movie theater. Addis tells us his top priority now is to fix the badly damaged, leaking roof.  Another priority...fund-raising. Addis has posted five different colored versions of a new Hollywood sign on line, and is asking people to donate money as they cast votes for their favorite choice.  The 42-foot-high sign would resemble one that stood above the Hollywood when it opened in 1936.

Bangor Post Office Re-opening Set For August 25th

Written by

The wait is almost over in Bangor...

Customers of the Bangor Post Office will be able to use that downtown building again on August 25th. The post office was closed on short notice seven months ago because of mold and mildew problems. But the building owner has removed the mildew and mold, and made other improvements. Because of the closing, postal services in Bangor had to be moved to a grocery store outside downtown.

One more attempt to end that winter parking experiment in the university neighborhood...

La Crosse's Parking Utility Board is urging the city council to 'dissolve' the special winter rules around U-W-L, and go back to alternate side parking. The idea of increasing parking fines in that area has been proposed, but council chair Audrey Kader says that's not fair to everyone in town.

 

University students are hoping the special zone can stay in effect one more winter, despite evidence that most people in the zone don't move their cars when told to do so.

Tammy Versus Tommy.....Expect What

Written by

So now that the primary is out of the way........what can we expect from the two remaining senate candidates, Tommy Thompson and Tammy Baldwin? Shouldn't be too bad says UW-La Crosse Political Professor, Joe Heim.

Heim says though you can expect non mud-slinging ad's, you can expect a lot of ad's with a lot of outside money.....just like the recall's.

Lakeview On County Agenda Tonight

Written by

La Crosse county needs to decide whether to spend on improving infrastructure in the current Lakeview Health center or build a facility that would be more cost efficient and better able to adapt to client needs. County Administrator, Steve O'Malley.

He says it would take an estimated $12 million to $13 million just to restore the building to its 1970s state and a three building facility would cost about $31.6 million, but would be eligible for Medicaid funds both for construction and operating costs. The board meets tonight.

Parking Lot Voter Suppression Plot Unraveled

Written by

Seal-coating, yes.  Voter suppression, probably not.  We had to ask the question of the Onalaska Town clerk after getting this call (on La Crosse Talk PM) yesterday evening claiming some dastardly deeds were underway at the town's polling place

 

 

We confirmed with the town clerk Melissa Erdman that, yes, in fact, the parking lot at the town hall was being chipped and sealed during voting yesterday.  But Town of Onalaska votes in the town shop, which had an open parking lot.  Erdman says maybe three voters had to wait a few minutes while a truck backed out of the town hall parking lot but, otherwise, voter access to the polling place was unhindered.  The parking lot work was scheduled for Monday but was pushed back a day because of rain.

A murder suspect in La Crosse was supposed to go on trial next week...but he enters a 'guilty' plea instead.

Pao Vue could get 40 years behind bars when he's sentenced in October for his role in the shooting death of Sara Hougom. Pao said in court today that he was the driver who brought Kong Vue to Hougom's La Crosse apartment building to commit a robbery. And he claims he never got out of the car at that address.

 

Kong Vue has admitted to shooting Hougom when he spotted her in the apartment as he attempted to steal her purse. While in jail, Pao Vue had told other prisoners that he was the actual gunman, instead of Kong Vue.
