Things got a little hot yesterday when somebody was working on metal in the art department at U-W-La Crosse.
Some metal started on fire inside a kiln on the first floor of the Center for the Arts. The fire did not spread outside the kiln, but firefighters evacuated the building just in case. The building's ventilation system dispersed most of the smoke. The arts building had to be evacuated for almost two hours.
For those of us who have stepped onto a school campus or into a school cafeteria in the United States, it is hard not to notice the abundance of bad food choices. Greasy pizza, fried snacks
The money will be used to increase the number of children in school lunch programs. In addition, unhealthy food choices will be replaced with better options. Lacrosse School Nutritionist, Joni Ralph, says she likes what she has seen so far.....what happens down to the road.....well that remains to be seen.
The Mississippi River remains a couple feet higher than normal indicating water still is draining through the tributary systems. And with all this snow.......spring flooding gonna be a problem?
Mike Welvaert, hydrologist with the National Weather Service in La Crosse says near-record snowfalls on top of waterlogged soils combined with rivers and streams still draining heavy autumn rains mean a higher-than-normal chance of spring flooding in the Coulee Region, especially between La Crosse and Eau Claire.
He says with rivers and streams not being able to rid themselves of all the water we had 2 months ago, expect some higher levels of flooding.
First, his wife went down....now....a Tomah man will follow her to prison after his sentencing.
58 year old Dennis Deeny was a part owner of Affordable Homes and kept over $200 grand of monies collected after the sale of 4 homes. Now he will spend the next 21 months in prison for bank fraud.
His 43 year old wife, Yvonne, has already been sentenced to 3 years behind bars after being charged with 47 counts of forgery and fraudulent writings by a corporate officer.
Deeny’s crime had serious consequences on his business partner, Gary Koznick, who had to repay the bank despite not taking a salary from Affordable Homes for a few years.
