More Construction Coming To UW-L

Written by

A lot of changes coming in the next few years to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. And Chancellor Joe Gow says, with some new buildings coming, they couldn't wait any longer.

The largest project coming is replacing a 1960s-era science hall. The project, costing $82 million, would be a new, four-story facility including teaching and research labs and associated support spaces. Gow anticipates hiring an architect in 2013 to start working on a final design. Construction for phase I would likely begin in 2015. The state-of-the-art facility replaces Cowley Hall.

Big Money Coming For Big Race

Written by

A lot of money is pouring into Wisconsin for the upcoming senate race. The national Senate campaign committees plan to spend a combined $10 million on the race. UW-L Political Scientist, Joe Heim, says it’s another sign of how significant the Tommy Thompson-Tammy Baldwin contest could be, in determining whether Republicans can win the majority in that chamber in November.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said it was adding over $ 2.5 million to its pot, for a total of $5.2 million in support of Tammy Baldwin’s candidacy. The Republican campaign committee has committed $5 million to try and help Tommy Thompson win.

By this time next year, the Hollywood Theater in La Crosse could be back in business.

New owner Phil Addis is moving along with extensive repairs to the 76-year-old movie theater. Addis tells us his top priority now is to fix the badly damaged, leaking roof.  Another priority...fund-raising. Addis has posted five different colored versions of a new Hollywood sign on line, and is asking people to donate money as they cast votes for their favorite choice.  The 42-foot-high sign would resemble one that stood above the Hollywood when it opened in 1936.

Bangor Post Office Re-opening Set For August 25th

Written by

The wait is almost over in Bangor...

Customers of the Bangor Post Office will be able to use that downtown building again on August 25th. The post office was closed on short notice seven months ago because of mold and mildew problems. But the building owner has removed the mildew and mold, and made other improvements. Because of the closing, postal services in Bangor had to be moved to a grocery store outside downtown.

One more attempt to end that winter parking experiment in the university neighborhood...

La Crosse's Parking Utility Board is urging the city council to 'dissolve' the special winter rules around U-W-L, and go back to alternate side parking. The idea of increasing parking fines in that area has been proposed, but council chair Audrey Kader says that's not fair to everyone in town.

 

University students are hoping the special zone can stay in effect one more winter, despite evidence that most people in the zone don't move their cars when told to do so.
