largest television

over the previous half-century, had made many offers for channel 4 over the years, but the deYoungs turned them down each time. It finally saw a chance to get an owned and operated station in what was then the United States' fifth-largest television market and quickly jumped into the bidding war for channel 4. NBC was seen as the frontrunner until it was outbid at the last second by New York City-based Young Broadcasting, then-owner of KCAL-TV in Los Angeles and several medium-to-small market stations. Young's purchase price for the station ($ (United States dollar)750 million at the outset, rising to $820 million by closing) was a record price for a single station that stands to this day. To help finance the down payment, Young was forced to sell WKBT in La Crosse, Wisconsin to Morgan Murphy Media. The '''La Crosse Loggers''' are a La Crosse, Wisconsin based baseball team playing in the Northwoods League, a collegiate summer baseball league (List of collegiate summer baseball leagues). They play at Copeland Park (Copeland Park (La Crosse)). * Ray Washburn (1938-present) - Born in Pasco, Washington.

History Its origin may be traced to the appearance at La Crosse, Wisconsin, in 1866, of the first Norwegian-American literary magazine, ''Ved Arnen'' ("By the Fireside"), which would later become a ''feulleton'' supplement thereto. Amundsen relocated his printing operation to Decorah, Iowa the following year. On September 18, 1874, Anundsen launched ''Decorah-Posten''. It was a well-edited newspaper, its size and familiar format developed gradually. The publisher avoided areas of political and religious controversy, which had destroyed so many earlier papers. Considerable credit has been given to Anundsen for his sound judgment and business sense. He kept abreast of the times in printing and distribution, and expanded the physical plant to meet growing needs. Death Nancy Parsons died January 5th, 2001, in La Crosse, Wisconsin, aged 58, from diabetes and congestive heart failure. * A municipal minimum wage was successfully enacted in March, 2004 with the leadership of Alder Austin King. Scaled to rise to $7.75 per hour by 2008 and thereafter to be indexed to inflation, Madison's wage ordinance made it the fourth city in the country with its own minimum standard. Madison's efforts prompted Milwaukee, La Crosse (La Crosse, Wisconsin) and Eau Claire (Eau Claire, Wisconsin) to establish their own municipal minimum wages. This resulted in a statewide compromise in May 2005, where Wisconsin's minimum wage rose to $6.50 per hour in exchange for prohibiting wage modifications at the municipal level. Changes In 1989, G. Heileman, citing over-capacity, closed the St. Paul brewery and moved production of Grain Belt to its La Crosse, Wisconsin brewery, taking production of the Grain Belt (and Schmidt) brands out of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul) for the first time. G. Heileman found itself faltering within a decade because of many of the same market pressures Grain Belt Breweries had faced in the 1970s. A group of investors was formed to purchase the Schmidt plant from Heileman. They also negotiated to buy the Grain Belt product line so they would have a recognizable, established Twin Cities brand to market. The new company was called the Minnesota Brewing Company 1991. It thrived during the 1990s with sales peaking in 1996. Minnesota Brewing also did lots of contract brewing for other beverage companies in order to improve efficiencies and keep the plant operating closer to capacity.
