Will Family Zone Be A Fixture At Fest

Written by

The Changing the Culture of Risky Drinking Coalition's Family Zone at this year’s Oktober­fest, sits on the former Mobil Oil site on Coplenad Avenue. But the City of La Crosse would like to eventually develop that land. If they do.....what happens to the zone that saw 450 watch the Maple Leaf Parade last year?

 

Catherine Kohlkmire says after looking at Oktoberfest in particular, the committee decided to implement an alcohol free zone, or the Family Zone, for the first time on the Maple Leaf Parade route. For now, it will be on the same sight this year....opening at 7am on the 29th.

Sign Rules at La Crosse Committee Meeting Tonight

Written by

Could be a well attended city council committee meeting tonight at La Crosse city hall.  At least by businesses.  The La Crosse Chamber of Commerce has warned businesses about possible impacts of a set of new rules for regulating signs of all kinds, especially electronic signs.  Many businesses would be forced to downgrade or get rid of their signs altogether eventually under the new regs.  One sign company believes that up to 90 percent of the electronic signs at businesses would be affected.  Another sign company estimates that regular static signs at up to 200 businesses would be considered too large or too big.

Girl Attacked by Pit Bull

Written by
A little girl in La Crosse will start school with some extra challenges today.  Police say the eight year-old northsider has been patched up after getting bitten repeatedly by the neighbor's pit bull.  The girl went to the neighbor's front door late last week and the pit bull rushed her.  Apparently got a piece of her knee and thigh.  The dog is licensed and is current on rabies shots but typical protocol for a bite of this kind is to have the dog quarantined.

College Students Bring Party Back to School

Written by

Noise complaints, drunk driving arrests, lots of underage drinking tickets.  Classes have started again at La Crosse's colleges.  UWL begins classes today and police certainly could tell over the week-end with numerous underage drinking tickets, a bunch of fights and a guy who tried to steal some computer equipment from the basement of a pizza joint downtown.  While the pizza place was full of bartime customers.  It was a couple of those customers who helped employees chase that guy down.  By any measure, a busy week-end for police, capped off by a short Labor Day search for the missing out of town of college student who woke up drunk somewhere downtown.

Man Faces Charges for Brutality Against Girlfriend

Written by
A La Crosse man faces a list of serious charges after essentially torturing his girlfriend for a couple of hours at her apartment on Thursday.   Police say 39 year-old Lonell Powers spent two hours alternating between beating and strangling his girlfriend.  At one point, she used her pet snake to shield herself, because Powers is apparently scared of it.  At another point, police say the woman escaped to the neighbor's house but Powers dragged her back inside by the hair.  Among the charges Power is facing: strangulation and first degree sexual assault.  Apparently the violence erupted over the woman communicating with other men.
