Police believe they have at last solved the mystery of the missing toilet valves.

According to a Brookfield police report: At 1:27 p.m. Wednesday, UWM called Brookfield police to ask that an officer be sent to meet …

UWM seeks a ban on weapons in university buildings; yet some professors are still dreading Nov. 1, the day the new state concealed carry law takes effect.
With the new state concealed carry law looming, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is trying to strike a balance with its approach to weapons on campus. When I showed up to college "back in the day," my first violation of residence hall rules was my dastardly ten-inch tall wicker garbage can and my two candles. It never occurred to me that one day I could just decorate my dorm room with loaded weapons.
