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.
A fundraiser in La Crosse will help out in the efforts to keep people out of danger at river's edge. A bowling tournament hosted by Features Sports Bar and Grill has raised 28 hundred dollars for Operation Riverwatch and the police reserves. The money will largely go to buy gear for those who stand watch in and around Riverside park in La Crosse to make certain wayward drunks don't fall in.
