The people looking to help turtles across the road in La Crosse are much more varied this time around.  Last year, it was seniors at a couple of assisted living centers on the southside who wanted the city to put up turtle crossing signs along East Avenue.  The effort failed.  Now a nearby daycare has gotten into the act.  Sherry Skelton's the director there.  She's turned into a sort-of turtle behaviorial specialist on their road-crossing habits

 

 

Employees at nearby Dairyland power have also signed onto a petition to squeeze some turtle crossing signs out of the city.

It's not too late to protect ash trees in La Crosse from the dreaded emerald ash borer...

But tree owners who do want to treat their plants with pesticide should start now. Gar Amunson, the city parks superintendent, says City Hall does not have a policy on whether to pay for chemicals, or just cut the trees down.

Amunson says if those trees in the city are not treated, they are all likely to die within five years. The ash borer was first detected in La Crosse last fall.

More than a dozen cases of whooping cough in La Crosse County just this month is a cause for concern among nurses and doctors...

Health professionals recommend a vaccine for those who are not sick, and anti-biotics for people who are infected. Bridget Pfaff , an infection specialist from Gundersen Lutheran, says people with pertussis might not know it right away, because symptoms are similar to allergies. But once you have it, you can feel effects of the illness for weeks.

Infants up to six months old can have the most severe reaction to pertussis, getting pneumonia or even dying.

A rural Kendall man is clinging to life today after being pinned by a farm tractor. It happened just before 7 last night in the Town of Wellington in Monroe County. The Sheriff says the family of a 69 year old man went looking for him after he had not retured home. They found the man pinned under a farm tractor that had flipped over. The man had to be carried out of the woods by hand by the Ontario Fire department members. He was transported to Gunderson Hospital by Med Link Air with life threatening injuries.

The sand in the hourglass has run out for that festival of sand-sculpting along the Mississippi in La Crosse...

The city park board has granted permission for Riverfront, Incorporated to cancel its reservation of Riverside Park for three days this August. Riverfront's board recently decided to end the Sand on the Riverfront festival, citing dwindling sponsorships.

 

The festival ran for 10 years. Corporate-sponsored teams would spend a Friday building large sand sculptures which would remain on display through the weekend.

You never know what you might find packed away in a corner of a garage...

One Minnesota man recently went to his late grandfather's garage, and discovered 64 pounds of mercury, which he tried to sell on-line. That's the equivalent of 30,000 mercury thermometers.  The state of Minnesota bought the toxic chemical, to keep it from being released in the open. Carl Herbrandson of the Minnesota Department of Health says the liquid metal can cause a real mess.  Mercury has been blamed for brain and nerve damage, which is why the government watches for high levels of it in fish, or from smokestacks.
