I live in the greater La Crosse area and thought you would get a kick out of know that you and the Corner scooped the local media and City Attourney on this decision. I read your posts yesterday and dutifully tuned into the local TV news broadcasts last night for more information but to my surprise there was no mention in either local affiliates broadcast. I emailed them inquiring about the ommission last night and got an email this morning letting me know they had not heard about it nor had the City Attorney (both were very curious how I got this information before they did).
It finally made the news today at noon. As you can imagine in a city of 50,000 this has been a fairly big story for some time and I guess we have you and the corner to thank for the fact that we found out the decision had been rendered.
