The sound of a sheriff's deputy, making a police call from an accident scene: 'Body on the ground, unresponsive.' That was La Crosse County deputy Trisha Stratman, after her squad car collided with another car on Highway 35 last year. Prosecutors say Stratman was checking on Brandon Jennings, who was thrown from the other car, and died in the accident. Stratman is on trial for causing the crash. Jurors heard the 9-1-1 dispatch calls from that night during testimony today.

UW-L Chancellor Joe Gow says he's not blind to those situations.

And the problem couldn't be easily addressed because the school couldn't afford to upgrade the building to comply with current zoning laws. And there's more.
