La Crosse Schools superintendent, Dr. Aaron Engel, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Jan. 24, 2024.

La Crosse Schools superintendent, Dr. Aaron Engel, in the WIZM studio Wednesday for La Crosse Talk PM, discussing news that the district sold Lincoln Middle School, what that deal encompasses and future building plans the school board is in the midst of discussing.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

Began the show, however, talking about escalating world conflict, as Engel is a Lt. Col. in the National Guard — for 20 years — and battalion commander. So we talked a bit about how they prepare for everything from floods, riots to conflicts overseas with news of conflict now in Ukraine, Israel and Iraq.

After that, we discuss the group that bought Lincoln for $2.2 million and the plan for that historic 100-year-old building.

Then we get into some of the options the school board has been discussing for what’s called the district’s long-range facility plan. The hope is to make a decision on the next steps in that plan by Feb. 19 — after two more regular Monday school board meetings.
