Last-Minute Doctor's Report Leads To Delay Of Stanley Hearing
One more delay for Bryan Stanley...
The commitment hearing for the man who killed three people at an Onalaska church has been delayed until next month, because of information received by Stanley's lawyer on short notice. Attorney Tom Hayes says he got a doctor's report on Stanley late yesterday afternoon, and he has not had time to review the report with his client. Stanley was sent back to the Mendota hospital last month after experiencing 'anxiety.' He has been living in the area for three years, after spending more than 20 years in the state hospital because of the church murders.
Miller Says Casino Money Needed For New Stadium
No more casinos no matter how much money they bring in. That's the sediment of some Minnesota lawmakers who are trying to get a bill passed to build a new Vikings stadium. Winona Republican Senator Jeremy Miller says a proposal he is working on with the White Earth Tribe would do just that.....give the state money......$400 million worth. In exchange for a casino.
It will take 68 votes in the House and 34 in the Senate to pass a Vikings bill. But the plan probably needs at least a few more than the bare minimum so no one could be cast as the deciding vote come campaign season.
