It seems like it would make more sense to group some of these sections together under common headings, as it currently looks like a rather haphazard compilation of sections.
- History (desperately needs expanding)
- Infrastructure (Transportation)
- Notable Residents (perhaps better on a separate page?)
- See Also
- External Links
Also, other churches and parochial/private schools need to be added, as there is currently a rather evident bias.
Any input would be great!

I have been adding information about the various parochial schools. See the education section. As far as the churches are concern, I am limiting the religion section to those which have been around for years like over a century. I am not sure we need to add every chhurch knowing that they could be merged or going out of existence. Thanks RFD 17:48, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
I see that someone added an unreferencedsect tag to this. I am not sure that I agree with this. What is the standard MO for this type of section? Patrick Berry 15:09, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
- I agree. Thanks-RFD 17:49, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
I don't believe LaCrosse is the "original home and international headquarters" of CenturyTel....that would be Monroe, LA.
- I removed CenturyTel from that sentence. It's still listed as one of the largest employers. Professor slats (talk) 09:53, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
I'd say he should be removed. He was born in La Crosse, but I'm pretty sure he never lived there. That'll leave us with only one notable resident, hopefully someone can dig up another? Professor slats (talk) 09:40, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
- At one time, there was a notable people section in the La Crosse, Wisconsin article. Unfortunately, it got deleted due to vandalism and it was never brought back. If someone could located the notable peoples section and put it back, it would be very helpful. It gets discouraging when you have to revert the vandals constantly. Thank you-RFD (talk) 10:48, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
I would hardly call Medary, Shelby or Campbell neighborhoods. These are independent, adjacent townships to the City of La Crosse. True, all three have territory that will eventually be annexed to the city, but not anytime soon. Referring to these large political entities as neighborhoods gives a very false impression to Wikipedia readers who might know very little about the City of La Crosse. Referring to the City of La Crescent in Minnesota as another possible neighborhood is just as ludicrous. These four entities mentioned are relatively huge; they do not come close to what we would term neighborhoods or even historic neighborhoods. (The City of La Crescent itself is a growing community that now has extended into two Minnesota counties.) In fact, Medary, Shelby, Campbell, and the City of La Crescent all are made up of individual neighborhoods. (Even the south and north sides of La Crosse each contain several neighborhoods.) One must be very careful how the term neighborhood is used, especially for tourism purposes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 3cities (talk • contribs) 02:42, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
Does anybody know whether La Crosse photographer and four-time mayor Arthur A. Bentley is the same Arthur A. Bentley who was the Democratic candidate for Governor in 1922? Please respond on my talk page. --Orange Mike | Talk 23:30, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
An anonymous editor placed Stephen Jerzak as a notable resident, with an external link to myspace. There is no Wikipedia article on this artist, although he is mentioned on several soundracks within Wikipedia. Perhaps this editor could create an article with credible sources on this artist, and then add to this list using standard procedures. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Settlet (talk • contribs) 22:37, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
In the sports section it lists 'multiple semi-pro sports' teams and then immediately lists the La Crosse Loggers. The Loggers are NOT semi-pro as the team is comprised of college players. Per NCAA rules, these players cannot receive compensation playing the game. They are amatures. BrueCrew3 (talk) 16:09, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

|How could Lt. Zebulon Pike have visited Lacrosse in 1765, when he was born in 1778? (See Zebulon Pike link in the LaCrosse, WI article.) It's also interesting to note that the text of the Pike article says he was born in the year 1778, while his birth year is listed as 1779 under his picture on the same page.|
