UWL Parking Ramp About 4 Months From Completion
The current parking crunch at U-W-La Crosse may only last another four months or so.
June is the target date for finishing a 500-space parking ramp now being built across the street from Oak Grove Cemetery, at 16th and La Crosse Streets.

Ruling On Stratman Firing Due Within A Few Weeks

According to department policy, Stratman was traveling too fast to stop safely while responding to a report of a bar fight in Holmen.
