No Burning In Bergen Or Stoddard

Written by

Cookouts will be allowed in Stoddard for Easter weekend, but other outdoor burning in the village is banned until further notice.

The Stoddard-Bergen Fire Department has declared an outdoor fire ban for that area because of the continuing dry weather. The one exception will be for charcoal grills at private homes, and the grills have to be on surfaces like concrete that won't catch on fire.

Oktoberfest Parades To Continue

Written by

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.

Severson says Oktoberfest will provide additional volunteers and paid security and because of that, the La Crosse Police Department has dropped their parade fees from $18 thousand to $10 thousand. The Oktoberfest Board will cancel non public events.....decrease advertising and public relations and will decrease expenses to public events. A community partner has also been chosen.....who that is will be revealed at 2 this afternoon.

Often the best way to get a handle on a problem is to get a first-hand look at it.  That's partly what's behind neighborhood walkthrougs scheduled to begin this month in La Crosse.  The city's Neighborhood Revitalization Commission will do two-hour tours of five distinct neighborhoods

 

 

City council member Sara Sullivan heads the commission.  The neighborhood walk throughs begin on the 16th of this month in the Washburn neighborhood.

Hough Will Ask For Recount In Mayor's Race

Written by

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.

So Why Did The Referendum Lose!

Written by

So why did the La Crosse City Administrator referendum fail? We asked UW-L Political Professor, Joe Heim, his thoughts on the matter.

He says people in La Crosse are more conservative when it comes to change unless they think they have a pretty good idea of what's going to happen.  The referendum failed by a vote of 5,937 to 3,934.

Another step forward in the effort to reopen the Hollywood Theater of La Crosse...

Attorney Phil Addis announced on a Facebook page yesterday that his company, Main Street Renaissance, has been granted the deed to the old movie theater at 5th and Jay. Addis says plans for the renovation of the Hollywood will be started soon. Addis's company bought the building at an auction in February for 15-thousand dollars. It had been owned previously by the Children's Museum of La Crosse. The Hollywood originally opened in 1936, and presented movies and live concerts before shutting down within the last 10 years.

A new delay in the murder trial of Eric Koula...

Jury selection is being delayed until the first week of June, to give both sides more opportunity to review evidence and witnesses. The Koula trial had been scheduled to start next week. This May will mark two years since Koula's parents were found shot to death at their Barre Mills home. Eric Koula is accused of committing the murders in order to get money from his parents' bank account, to pay off debts from stock trading.

Chilsen Plan: Teacher Before 9, Mayor After 9

Written by

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.

Kind Sides With Barrett For Governor

Written by

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.
