Temps were high on the 4th of July last year in La Crosse...and on the 6th of July, too.

The mercury got up to 100 on both of those days in 2012, keeping many people from attending Riverfest and other activities. Not much trouble with heat predicted on the holiday this year. Meteorologist Marv Holewinski tells us that temperatures should remain around a normal of 80 for much of this week. He even doubts that La Crosse will see highs above 85 in the first two weeks of July.

The first half of 2013 was the second-wettest on record in La Crosse, second only to 1993.  The city's precipitation is nine inches above normal this year.  In Madison, precip is 14 inches over normal.

Today, the City of La Crosse’s Community Development Block Grant Committee released
its annual report. Last year, the City spent just over $1.4 million on community
development, economic development, and housing programs. The report addresses the
results of an annual grant given to the City from US Department of Housing and Urban
Development. Its purpose is to help address urgent community needs.

Highlights from the report include that the City provided grants to 15 community
organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club, the Salvation Army, and St. Clare
Health Mission. Together, these 15 organizations provided services to over 5,500
low-income families ranging from health care for the uninsured to after-school
programming for teens in the Powell-Hood-Hamilton neighborhood. The City also
provided low-interest loans to two area small businesses.

The City of La Crosse Housing Program also worked towards improving the city’s
housing stock and creating affordable housing. The program demolished blighted
properties and built new homes and significantly renovated others. Last year, the
City sold nine homes, began construction on 10 new properties, renovated seven
homes, and  acquired five additional blighted properties for demolition.

Finally, the City’s housing and small business revolving loan programs brought in
over $500,000 in income which leveraged private resources to support these programs.
 The full report is available on the City’s website,
