All 3 parades for this year's Oktoberfest in La Crosse will be held....but there are some stipulations coming along with that. Executive Director Tina Severson.

A community partner has also been chosen.....who that is will be revealed at 2 this afternoon.

The challenger to Tomah's incumbent mayor says she wants a recount. According to unofficial results, Mayor John Rusch defeated Shannon Hough (HUFF) 755 votes to 750 votes in Tuesday's election. Hough has already asked the Tomah City Clerk's office for a recount, but an official canvass of votes must be completed before she can formally request a recount. The city clerk is waiting on 14 absentee ballots that have not been returned. In the meantime.......we asked Hough how a woman from California who lived in Tomah for a year.......darn near beat a man that's lived there his whole life.
The canvass will likely be complete Monday morning, at which point Hough has three days to file for a recount.

On the day after being elected mayor of Onalaska, Joe Chilsen has his new routine figured out...
Chilsen will balance his new duties at City Hall with his main job, teaching marketing at U-W-La Crosse before 9 a.m., and then heading to his office to do what he calls "mayor stuff."
Chilsen pledged to work closely with members of the city's executive team who are the experts in different departments. He won Tuesday's election with 77 per cent of the vote over opponent Samantha Carter.
Three weeks ago, Congressman Ron Kind was asked if he had made final plans for this election year, and he said he would have a statement "shortly."
So far, the La Crosse Democrat still has not made that announcement...but another statement today from Kind takes him out of the race for governor. Kind is endorsing Tom Barrett for the Democratic nomination to challenge Scott Walker in the spring recall election. He calls the Milwaukee mayor a leader who can 'bring Wisconsin together again.' A few months ago, Kind decided not to run for the U-S Senate seat being vacated by Herb Kohl.
