The Board of Education for the School District of La Crosse voted Tuesday night in special session to award a contract to Fowler and Hammer to serve as the general contractor for the district’s new north side school. Fowler and Hammer’s bid of $14,513,000 was the lowest of the 5 bids submitted for the project. “Not only was Fowler and Hammer’s bid the lowest bid, but it also outlined a commitment to work with local laborers,” shares Superintendent of Schools Randy Nelson. “We are excited to work with them on this project and know that they will bring extreme expertise to the project.” The district has scheduled a ground breaking ceremony for the new school for Friday, September 6th at 10:00 a.m.
On a hot night.....if someone walks into your store with a hoodie and mask on.....you know it won't be good. As was the case at Kwik Trip on George Street in La Crosse early this morning.
La Crosse Police responded an armed robbery just before 1 this morning. Upon arrival officers had contact with store employees. Police say a guy walked into the Kwik Trip, showed a gun and demanded money. The guy was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up over his head and had a black mask and white gloves on. He took cash and two cartons of cigarettes and then left in an unknown direction.

In the space of three days, two well-known business buildings in downtown La Crosse have been damaged by fire.
Fayze's restaurant on 4th Street is being fixed up after an early-morning fire on Sunday. Firefighters found flames in the basement, and confined the fire to that area. The restaurant and the Top Shots bar were evacuated during the fire, along with apartments on upper floors. The Fayze's fire comes two days after an electrical fire caused damage to the marquee area of the vacant Hollywood Theater, one block away.
One driver has been killed in a head-on collision on Highway HD, near the Highway 53 interchange.
The victim was northbound at the south end of Holmen. The car was hit by a southbound SUV which went out of control, crossed the median, and went into the opposite lane. The SUV driver had minor injuries. There were no passengers in either vehicle. Alcohol is not considered a factor. The collision happened around 4:30 on Friday afternoon.
