Dan Kapanke stopped in the WIZM studio Wednesday for La Crosse Talk PM, discussing the upcoming seasons for the La Crosse Loggers baseball team, the newly created La Crosse Steam softball club and the PFAS “forever chemicals” situation in the town of Campbell.

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.

Kapanke is co-owner of both the Loggers and Steam, who will both play at Copeland Park this summer. He is also the board chair for the Town of Campbell, which has been on bottled water for over four years because of PFAS contamination in 90 percent of the private wells on the island.

Spent a good portion of the show talking about the inaugural season for the Steam, some history of the Loggers — including MLB all-stars Chris Sale and Max Scherzer — plus a little bit on how renovations at Copeland Park, which is owned by the city, compare to how stadium upgrades happened with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Ended the show (32:20) discussing the PFAS situation, what Campbell’s options are and where the money to proceed with any of those options will come from.
