Dog Attacks Terrorize Some in City

Written by

La Crosse isn't exactly going to the dogs.  But there's been a couple attacks in the last few days that may make it seem so.  There was the 82 year-old woman out for a morning walk on the city's southside who was charged by two big black dogs.  They got a piece fo each of her legs.  She was treated at the hospital and given rabies and tetanus shots.  And there's the pit bull and the lab duo running free on the northside.  Neighbors fear them.  Children run from them.  And the owner doesn't seem to be in control of them.  The two ran after an older couple unloading their car in the morning, chasing them inside their house.  The owner of those dogs has been warned he might lose them.

The end of summer means budget time for every city department in La Crosse...including the people who run the La Crosse Center.

Members of the Center Board could get a look at budget plans during a meeting this afternoon. If the arena has to cut spending like the other departments, Center manager Art Fahey says staffing will be high on the list of areas to reduce.  At the same time, the board will be asked to approve expenses such as way-finding signs, and a second dance floor.

Mobil Clean Up is First Step

Written by

One of the keys towards developing a key piece of real estate in La Crosse has always been the clean-up. 

 

Now that Exxon Mobil has begun the process of removing contaminated soil at the Mobil Oil site off of Copeland avenue, those development plans can really start moving forward.  

<hr id="system-readmore" />

 But with deliberation, hopes city council president Audrey Kader. 

 

 

Kader wants the 65 acre tract of land that includes the Mobil Oil site to be developed under one plan.  There's not a clear picture of when the soil clean-up at the property will be complete.

There might not be a ruling for weeks or months after a labor hearing happening today in the Trisha Stratman case...

A state arbitrator is hearing arguments on whether Stratman was fired unjustly from her job as a La Crosse County sheriff's deputy, following a fatal crash. Stratman was dismissed just over a year ago for violating department policies...for driving at high speeds and going through red lights while responding to an emergency call. Stratman's squad car was going over 90 miles an hour when she collided with teenage driver Brandon Jennings at an intersection of Highway 35. Jennings died in the crash. A jury acquitted Stratman on a homicide charge.

Cowley Hall on the campus of UW-La Crosse was one focal point of the UW-System Regents budget meeting Thursday. Regents were shown a video which showed water in the walls...floors...labs.....not a good scene according to Brent Smith. That hall, along with some others in the state, are on track to get monies to be replaced and in some cases...updated.

Smith says the budget, approved Thursday, now heads to the Department of Administration for review.

UW Regents Approve Budget

Written by

The UW Board of Regents decided Thursday to seek funding for 22 building and maintenance projects at campuses throughout the state. A $672 million dollar capital budget is being considered separately from the budget which runs the schools themselves. Some, according to UW-Regent, Brent Smith, will go towards Cowley Hall on the UW-La Crosse campus.

Other projects according to the La Crosse Attorney......a new Meat and Muscle biology lab, plus renovations for the Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research and Babcock Hall and a new chemistry and biology building at UW Stevens Point. The entire budget, approved by the regents, now goes to the Department of Administration.
