By the time this year's freshmen at UW-La Crosse are ready to graduate, they should see two more new buildings open on campus.

Construction of a student center is set to begin in just over a year, to be followed by an $80 million science hall. Assistant campus planner Scott Schumacher says the actual design phase will take a few more months.  The student union to open in 2015 would replace Cartwright Center, which opened over 50 years ago. The current Cowley science building dates back to the mid-60's.

The trial ended nine months ago, but the judge's ruling wasn't ready until today.

Chad Schroeder should learn this afternoon whether he'll be released from prison, or committed to a state hospital. Schroeder already has served about 20 years for forcing underage girls to have sex with him, while he was a teenager in Holmen. The state justice department requested a commitment trial, to determine if Schroeder might commit sex crimes again if he's sent out into the community. Judge Dale Pasell has been weighing a decision since the trial last May.

XCEL Turning To More Wind

Written by

(AP) Xcel Energy plans to capitalize on what could be a buyer's market for wind energy this year. The Minneapolis-based utility has told regulators in Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas that it will look for up to 200 megawatts of wind power by April 1. The federal tax credit for wind production has been extended to next January.

Xcel regional vice president Laura McCarten says the utility could buy a wind farm outright or just purchase power from it. But McCarten says the utility is under no obligation to buy any wind power if it doesn't find the right deal. Xcel has no need for additional wind power until 2017 at the earliest.

Xcel needs to generate 30 percent of its electricity from renewable resources by 2020.
