Not so easy to get rid of my old dormitory after all.

UW-Madison's Ogg Hall left half-razed after state kills contract with demolition company over safety concerns

It was scheduled to be obliterated by now, but scruffy UW-Madison dormitory Ogg Hall still stands, frozen in a half-demolished state.

The state broke the contract with the demolition company, Dore and Associates, of Bay City, Mich., because it was behind schedule and posed safety problems, officials said.

The company's chairman, Art Dore, disputes the claims, arguing work was done on time and the state illegally terminated the contract.
