Nov. 26, 2014 6:06 a.m.

King Washington - comprised of bassist Billy Lee and guitarists Tyson Kelly and George Krikes - hails from Los Angeles, so it's safe to say the recent hammering of cold winds and sleet isn't exactly something they're used to.

Coming off an NCAA Tournament appearance, and naming rights for their own Downtown arena, things should have been looking up for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's basketball team this year. But academic sanctions took away any chance at postseason basketball, so the team enters the season with a chip on the shoulder and a goal of winning the regular season Horizon League title.

Ultra-modern East Library reaches the home stretch

Nov. 10, 2014 1:05 p.m.

Despite a few half-finished walls and the shell, there was little to see but drawings and a few nascent details. A quick peek last month showed quite a bit of progress, but nothing quite like how the place looked when we got a tour last week from branch manager Rachel Collins.
