It's your turn to weigh in on a long range plan for the La Crosse school district.
The district hosts a community feedback day to hear from taxpayers about the plan that, among other things, would change boundaries and move schools. Community forum begins at the Hogan administration building tomorrow morning at nine.
A portion of Highway 16 between Bangor and Sparta could be closed all night, as police investigate a semi involved in a chase from Tomah to Sparta. People living near the spot where the truck was halted have been evacuated, and I-90 is suggested as a detour until morning.
Some local boat owners who keep their boats docked at Skipperliner on French Island could get them in the water in a few days.
Judge Dale Pasell is directing a receiver for Skipperliner to arrange for boats to be returned to their owners as soon as possible, maybe by this weekend. The sudden shutdown of the boat-maker two weeks ago literally left those owners high and dry...not knowing if they could get access to their dry-docked boats before the start of summer. The judge's order also affects people who own boats kept at Skipperliner property in Arizona.
A portion of highway 16 outside Sparta is temporarily shutdown. A semi was apparently plowing through the city without stopping for traffic lights. Cops have the truck pulled over. Again, a portion of highway 16 near Sparta is closed until cops have control of the situation.
One area school board could vote tonight to get rid of its long-time Indian nickname...or maybe not.
Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau superintendent Troy Gunderson thinks a vote on the future of the "Redmen" nickname could go either way. Governor Doyle signed a bill last week giving the state more power to force schools to drop Indian mascots. Gunderson says there's pressure from G-E-T taxpayers to settle the matter, now that the bill has been signed. Last year, the G-E-T board came within one vote of abolishing the nickname.
