It's a popular site for band concerts, and performances during Riverfest and the Rotary Lights celebration.

The bandshell in La Crosse's Riverside Park is due for another renovation, according to the man in charge of the park department. Steve Carlyon wants to see the bandshell returned to its original appearance, making it much smaller...the way it was built 100 years ago.

 

Carlyon expects the project to happen in the next year or two. He's taking his cue from the recent rebuilding of the shelter atop Grandad Bluff, to look more like its original design.

She was there for a reason.

Western Technical College Nursing student, Megan Barbian, was sun bathing at Pettibone Beach Wednesday night when a man found a 20 month old girl washed up on shore, not breathing. Barbian had heard the girls grandmother, Jackie Olson, asking if anyone had seen her......she says she then sprung up and started administering CPR for about 10 minutes.

The little girl was released from Gunderson Lutheran Thursday. Barbian says the life changing event has not hit her yet........but when it does.....it's something she will never forget. She plans on checking on the little girl every now and then now.

Wisconsin Moves Up In CNBC Report

Written by
CNBC released its rankings of the Top States For Business. Wisconsin climbed eight spots to come in at  number 17. This is the highest Wisconsin has ranked since CNBC began conducting the study in 2007.



Bill Feehan, Republican State Senate Candidate, says this improvement in our ranking shows we are on the right track.
In 2012, Wisconsin improved or scored the same as it did in 2011 in eight of ten categories. The CNBC ranking shows Wisconsin's greatest improvement in the category of infrastructure and transportation, where the state jumped from 22nd to 6th in the country. Wisconsin also ranked high in education (10th), quality of life (14th), and cost of doing business (15th).

It could be the official end of a parking experiment in the U-W-L neighborhood...

The La Crosse city council will be asked to vote next month on an ordinance to dissolve the special rules for alternate side parking in the university neighborhood during the winter. In the last three years, City Hall would send out alerts in that part of town, only on nights when the streets would be plowed. Only 11 alerts were issued during the five-month period of winter parking last year...and many people didn't bother to move their cars on those nights, anyway.

Dual Beat Down Gets Man 15 Years In Prison

Written by

15 years in prison. That's the sentence a La Crosse man recieved today for beating his girlfriend and her friend to the point of permanent injuries. Judge Scott Horne told 58 year old Daniel Stoddard that this was one of the most sever incidents of domestic violence he has seen short of a homicide.

Stoddard was drunk on whiskey back on July 29th of last year when he attacked the two women in La Crosse. Stoddard accused his girlfriend of cheating on him then punched her friend in the head. The woman lost consciousness and woke up to find him kicking his girlfriend. He then kicked the friend in the head and punched her repeatedly after noticing she regained consciousness. Stoddard also hit the woman in the head with a frying pan.

Stoddard’s girlfriend ended up with a brain injury, skull fracture, lacerations, puncture wounds and bruises. Her suffered head wounds that required 32 staples and a broken hand among other injuries.
