UW-La Crosse Cowley Hall Center Of Attention For Regents
Cowley Hall on the campus of UW-La Crosse was one focal point of the UW-System Regents budget meeting Thursday. Regents were shown a video which showed water in the walls...floors...labs.....not a good scene according to Brent Smith. That hall, along with some others in the state, are on track to get monies to be replaced and in some cases...updated.
Smith says the budget, approved Thursday, now heads to the Department of Administration for review.

Some, according to UW-Regent, Brent Smith, will go towards Cowley Hall on the UW-La Crosse campus.
Other projects according to the La Crosse Attorney......a new Meat and Muscle biology lab, plus renovations for the Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research and Babcock Hall and a new chemistry and biology building at UW Stevens Point. The entire budget, approved by the regents, now goes to the Department of Administration.
Madison Radio Reporter Barred From Sen. Johnson Event
Senator Ron Johnson got some news coverage for the Romney campaign at an event in Madison yesterday...attended by almost all of the Madison media outlets.
WTDY Radio reporter Dylan Brogan says he was kept out of the Monona Terrace event by Romney staffers. He says a Wisconsin representative of the Romney campaign specifically barred him, claiming 'guilt by association,' because WTDY talk host Sly in the Morning organized an anti-Johnson protest last month.
Brogan says police escorted him from the building. The protest by Sly, involving the display of Chinese flags, happened last month in Janesville at a campaign event featuring Johnson and Congressman Paul Ryan.
