Bear Seen In West Salem

Written by

A very interesting spectator showed up at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway this morning....though racing does not start for 2 more weeks. A black bear was spotted roaming the grandstands inside the track, according to track Marketing Director, Dave Noelke. The 100 pound or so bear, was trapped by the hospitality area after a while, and track officials opened a gate to let it back into the wild. The DNR was called, but the bear was long gone by the time they showed up. They, along with a wildlife biologist, were tracking the bear around 12:40pm today, near Elm Street and West Ave. The West Salem High School was placed on lock down for the time being.

Healthy Checkouts At Wal Mart

Written by

2 checkout aisles at the WalMart on Mormon Coulee Road no longer offer candy and gum.....instead you'll see fruit, granola snacks and chalk and bubbles. Why?

Tiffany Adrians with the county health department says an addition to the healthy checkout aisles, Wal-Mart displays a Foot Steps to Health board in their produce department featuring quick and delicious recipes along with coloring sheets for children. They say they're not taking away options, simply encouraging the healthier ones. It's all a part of a Community Putting Prevention to Work Grant.

4 Day School Week Getting Closer For B-T-H-S

Written by

 

An area school district could be first in the state to get a four day school week. Thousands of surveys went in the mail this week to residents of the Blair-Taylor School District. The district wants their opinion on switching to a four-day school week. Several public meetings on the issue were held earlier this year and one speaker at a meetin was Dr. Don Kordosky, superintendent of Oakridge Schools in Oregon State. He said since his district went to the four day schedule, he’s been spreading the word across the country on its pros and cons. One big pro he says is that making the switch can save the district about five to seven percent of its budget. Blair-Taylor Superintendent Dennis Dervetski says it’s all about improving the learning environment by allowed 45 extra minutes of instructional time. And he's all for it. If approved, the 4 day week would be in effect this fall.

Local GOP Chair Comfortable With Any Challenger

Written by

At this point, it would seem republicans in Wisconsin could watch with satisfaction while democrats grapple over who to back for governor.   But La Crosse county republican party chair Julian Bradley says they've got more important stuff to do than focus on democratic infighting 

 

 

Bradley insists, from a strategy standpoint, it won't matter to republicans who democrats select for a nominee in next month's recall primary election.

New garbage regulations are on hold for another two months in La Crosse.  The delay comes as landlords complain to the city council that the new rules are still too restrictive and could leave them on the hook for junk their tenants leave curbside.  Work on the new rules began last May in response to complaints about the piles of trash left after the spring exodus of college students in certain neighborhoods.  The plan now, apparently, to refine the garbage rules in order to provoke fewer complaints from rental property owners.

Scene Set For Hollywood Remake

Written by

The Hollywood Theater marquee in La Crosse was lighted up this morning...a possible sign of things to come in the old movie house.

The Hollywood's new owner, Phil Addis, took reporters on a tour through the empty theater today. There's no screen, and all the seats were taken out, and there's damage to the walls and ceilings. Addis says restoring it could be a major task, but he thinks it's worth the effort.

 

The Hollywood used to seat up to one thousand people, when it had movies and live concerts. The building was shut down eight years ago.

A case that never should have gone to court...

That's how a defense attorney for G-E-T middle school coach Brady Olson describes the felony child abuse charge that Olson had been facing. The coach and teacher was accused of harming the girls on his basketball team by putting dry ice on their skin. Attorney Jim Birnbaum says the judge made the right decision by throwing out the charge.

 

Birnbaum says Olson will continue to challenge the misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, hoping to get that count dismissed as well.
