District Closer To Selling Roosevelt School
Monday night, the La Crosse School District revealed who the parties are that want to buy the Roosevelt School in La Crosse. Impact Seven offered to purchase the site with plans to convert the building into a senior housing facility and build up to 20 town homes . Commonwealth Development offered to purchase the site and would convert Roosevelt into a 32 unit apartment building and build 12 town homes along Palace Street, with 15 percent of new housing reserved for homeless veterans. Gorman and Company has plans to convert the Roosevelt building into an apartment building with 23 units. The school board will now interview the three developers and should have a closer answer as to what will become of the school building at the August 4th board meeting.

Hot Time For Summer
ReadyWisconsin is urging residents to take precautions against hot and humid conditions over the next several days. Highs will be in the lower 90’s with a heat index around 100 degrees in the advisory area. For the rest of the state, highs will reach the upper 80’s and 90’s along with high humidity on Tuesday. The heat index will peak in the 95 to 100 degree range tomorrow.
The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity could lead to heat illnesses. Given the cool summer we’ve experienced so far, these conditions may lead to a high risk of heat related stress and illness. This is especially true of the young and elderly, and those without air conditioning.
In 2013, 11 Wisconsin residents suffered heat-related deaths. Many of those victims had limited contact with the outside world.
